The Money Trail: iPhone Sales and AT&T Kickbacks Drive Profitable Fourth Quarter for Apple

Apple's fiscal fourth quarter ended in September, and the bean counters in every investment firm are hard at work following the money trail, speculating on Apple's quarterly results. Bear Stearn analyst Andrew Neff, the man most well known for his crazy but prophetic predictions about the implosion and consolidation of the PC industry, believes that iPhone could be the start of something big. He tells investors that while deferred profit sharing with AT&T won't have an immediate impact on Apple's bottom line, he sees iPhone being a money machine, driving profits. Doesn't it warm your heart to read those words?

Mon Dieu! Invasion de l'iPhone! Orange Scores Exclusive Deal with Apple

Bonjour! My name is Jacques. On behalf of the people of France I would just like to say Merci to you Americans for exporting the Suprême iPhone. We French are quite accustomed to pinching and making gestures with our fingers, so the iPhone will be as second nature to us, oui? However, our country already has too many elitist assholes, so you may keep Steve Jobs. Just give us the iPhone and we can forget the unpaid loans you still owe us from the American Revolution. Did you swine think we had forgotten that our King Louis financed your war of independence, and allowed your con man, Benjamin Franklin, to rob our national treasury! Give us iPhone, and we give your freedom... and I don't mean fries, mon ami.

Apple Sued, Again

Deep Red iPhone Coming?

Engadget reports that a deep red version of the iPhone is in the works. The report lists a 4GB version available in deep red, but I'll believe a deep red 4GB iPhone when I see it. The best reason that Apple would make a red iPhone is to be part of the PRODUCT (RED) charity for AIDS in Africa, which Apple has done with iPods for quite a while now.

iPhone Owners: Likely Once Treo Owners

figure 1: The Orange Treo 680 is what I used before I got an iPhone. This and a featurephone, actually, for when I wanted to take a non-useless picture of something. I used both AT&T and T-Mobile.


p>Let me put on my Carnac the Magnificent hat and guess that you were on T-Mobile too. There's an interesting survey report done by the NPD group recently that caught my eye, specifically because it names Treos. I still have love for Treos, but I'm off the wagon in terms of using one regularly at least until their Linux OS ships. But here are the fact nuggets that they report:

iPhone and iPod Touch Jailbreaks for 1.1.1

The process for jailbreaking an iPhone manually is pretty involved; Apple's process of securing the iPhone and iPod Touch have made the barrier to entry for installing 3rd party applications on an iPhone much tougher. If you're looking to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod touch in the hopes of installing other applications or non-Apple-sanctioned ringtones, however, there are now some easier ways to do it.

Saucepans and Stew Pots: Study Says Consumers Ditched Treos for iPhones. Sorry, Palm

Alas, poor Palm. You just can't seem to get a break these days, can you? First came that whole embarrassing Foleo fiasco (or Foolio as I like to call it), an ordeal not to be repeated. Then your long overdue Palm OS replacement gets pushed back, twice, not to appear for another 18 months. Now comes this latest report, certain to deliver yet another vigorous blow to the nuts.
