AT&T Limits iPhone Sales to One Per Customer

AT&T sent out an email today notifying subscribers that it is limiting the number of iPhones available to one-per-customers. I support this move. The last thing we need on Friday are profiteers swooping in like vultures to buy up most of the supply chain in hopes of making a huge markup on eBay.

We all want an iPhone, and this limitation ensures that we at least stand a fair chance of getting one.

New York Post Says iPhone Sucks! That's What She Said!

New York Post (that's POST, not TIMES) columnist Glenn Fleishman doesn't like the iPhone. In fact he hates it. And he hates you for even thinking of buying one. His column isn't what I would categorize as a product review. In fact it sounds more like he has some grudge against Apple. The guy only spent a brief moment looking at the device and from that he writes a review? The New York Post must have low review standards.

The iPhone crams so many different features into its slightly bulky form that it can only excel at one, and compromise on the rest. After spending some time, albeit briefly, with the iPhone, it's clear to me that Internet and e-mail are the parts that suffered.

Perhaps he didn't get a free iPhone? Seriously, Glenn...why the hate?

Apple and Microsoft Working to Bring Exchange DirectPush To iPhone, and Cure World Hunger

God and Satan join forces to bring Microsoft Exchange Hell spawn DirectPush support to iPhone, offering all the benefits of Windows Mobile (and then some) to Jesus phone users. This according to Mary Jo Foley at Zdnet.

Here’s what I’m hearing: Apple will announce this week — possibly as soon as June 27 — that it has licensed the Exchange ActiveSync licensing protocol. Via the licensing arrangement, Apple iPhone users will be able to connect to Exchange Server and make use of its wireless messaging and synchronization capabilities.

This will no doubt elicit a loud HUZZAH! from those of you that use a hosted Exchange service, like myself. Though personally I'm thinking of dumping the Microsoft ecosystem and using a mashup of various solutions like Google apps + .Mac.

Analyst Says Palm is Screwed

Analyst Michael Walkley of Piper Jaffray says Palm stands to lose most from iPhone's grand entrance into the smartphone market. Walkley told Barons

“With the BlackBerry Curve ramping and iPhone launching June 29th at AT&T, we view Treo as the most impacted by these launches and anticipate even further declines in sell through trends.”

Palm has enough problems on its hand dealing with an obsolete mobile platform and products that are equally outdated. To make matters wose, the company made a failed bet on a brain-dead Linux portable that it hoped would spark significant sales growth, which isn't going to happen.

Palm is running out of cash and ideas. Unless the company can pull a breakthrough product out of its hat soon, they won't be in this market much longer.

Dvorak H8teS on iPhone, Slaps Some Sense Into Us

Tech curmudgeon John C. Dvorak (inventor of the pot belly stove, Lava lamps, and incessant whining) says he's had enough of all this iPhone hype. His prescription to the problem is for all of us to shut and move on with our lives, tend to our compost piles, pick flowers, that sort of thing.
