Your iPhone Will Be Unlocked in T-Minus 48 Hours, So They Claim

A website called iPhone-SIM-Free is claiming that it will release to the world a fully software based SIM unlocking solution for iPhone, within the next 48 hours. That's a pretty bold claim, so either its is legit or a shameless grab for traffic. We'll know in just 48...no...make that 47, no wait. I think 45 hours? Whatever, just bookmark this website and keep checking back.

iYawn: Web Apps Just Aren't Cutting it, Apple

I came across this story this morning on PC World, and it stirred my own frustration with Apple. Web apps have their place and, truth be told, developers have found very clever ways to extend the genre, but I and every iPhone user on this hemisphere want the same thing - native application support!

Fire Up iTunes, Kiddies...Update 1.0.2 is Here!

Holy bug fix, Batman! Apple has quietly rolled out another dot release - the second, if you’re keeping track. Per Apple this is a bug fix, not a major software release…sorry fanboys.

I’m downloading the update right now and haven’t yet installed it, so I’ll keep everyone posted should I discover hidden treasure. Frankly my hopes will be more than satiated if Apple resolved the numerous issues I’ve had with Mail.

Happy installing.

iPhone To Storm Europe's Beaches This Fall, Blitzkrieg Ala Apple

Financial Times reports that Apple has managed to secure exclusive contracts with several major European mobile operators in efforts to bring iPhone to France, Germany, and the UK, later this fall.

An official announcement outlining the details of the partnership will be made public at the end of this month, during the IFA trade fair in Berlin. Speculation is running high that T-Mobile, O2, and Orange will be Apple's dance partners, though all three declined to comment (wink wink).

I'm just as happy to see iPhone move beyond US shores as much as any citizen of the world, but the part that drives a MacBook through my heart is the Euro model will include 3G support. *weeping*

Analyst Says iPhone Demand is Strong, But The Product Needs To Get Smarter

Analyst Ben Reitzes of UBS says, based on AT&T store surveys, iPhone demand remains strong long after Apple's hype machine winds down. The firm's target expectation for iPhone shipments in the fourth quarter is 800,000 units, and Reitzes believes Apple is on track to beat its set goal of 1 million iPhone shipments.

Today's published study by UBS yields some interesting factoids. One being that, despite all the naysaying, iPhone has a low return rate. Many skeptics had predicted iPhone returns en masse by frustrated consumers.

Another takeaway is iPhone, at least so far, hasn't suffered a loss in sales momentum. That surprises even myself, as I expected a sharp drop in sales within the first eight weeks of launch, as hype died down and the early adopter market had quelled.

My Own Billing Nightmare, Courtesy of AT&T

Over the weekend I received my AT&T bill in the mail - both of them. Huh...TWO envelopes? Rather than the usual slim parcel containing a handful of billing statements, I received two overstuffed packets filled with nearly sixty pages, detailing every minutia of data. While this is still a far cry from Justine Ezarik's infamous 300 page AT&T bill, it still exceeds the boundaries of reason and is horrific waste of tree.
