A look inside the murky world of smartphone trafficking

It's a sad truth, but smartphones get stolen all the time, many never to be seen by their loving owners again. But, especially in the age of tracking apps like Find My iPhone, how come so many disappear? Where do they all go? Besides the opportunistic thief, there's organized gangs that actually ship large quantities of them out of the U.S. Jerry Deaven of Homeland Security told The Huffington Post that these organizations are shipping millions of dollars worth of phones out of the country every month:

Would you be interested in a water resistant iPhone? [Poll]

Would you be interested in a water resistant iPhone?

Would you be interested in a water resistant iPhone? Samsung has just launched a rugged, water resistant version of their flagship Galaxy S4 – be sure to check out Android Central's review – but they aren't the first OEM to dabble with a high-profile water resistant device either. Sony's recent high end offerings the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z have both had this ability, along with a host of 2012 devices. Using a phone in or near water seems like a strange notion for many, but for some folks being able to withstand the wet stuff is essential. Previously, those people would have to settle for a lower end offering in some chunky, rough and tough package. With Samsung and Sony leading the way, would water resistance be a welcome addition to the iPhone?

NTT DoCoMo reportedly doesn't want the iPhone unless they can screw it up, so customers don't want NTT DoCoMo

NTT DoCoMo reportedly doesn't want the iPhone unless they can stick their logo and crapware, er, value added services, on it. Apple, of course, doesn't allow such shenanigans. The result, apparently, is a stalemate for the two companies, and no iPhone on NTT DoCoMo for customers. So what are customers doing about it? Leaving NTT DoCoMo, it seems. Sophie Knight and Maki Shiraki report for Reuters:

DoCoMo's requirement that its company logo be imprinted on all its devices also conflicts with style-conscious Apple's insistence that its products be left as manufactured.

Happy 6th birthday, iPhone!

Six years ago today I was watching in barely contained rage-jealousy as my friends lined up to buy the original iPhone at Apple Stores across America. It had no third-party apps, no video recording, no MMS, no copy/paste, and nothing approaching the functionality of Treo, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, or Symbian (Wikipedia it) smartphones at the time, but it had a gorgeous capacitive multitouch interface and better first-party multitasking than had ever been seen in mobile before (it could switch from music to phone and back without crashing!)
