Whither iPhone in Canada?

The iPhone faces additional legal issues in Canada before it can make its way onto Rogers. It appears that a plucky little Ontarian telecom named Comwave wants Apple to pony up cash before Apple can use the iPhone trademark. Comwave is currently using the iPhone trademark for VOIP phones and services. The trademark brouhaha is currently playing its way out in CIPO, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. Also, there's currently no public deal with Rogers to carry the iPhone, that could be another stumbling block. Apple probably has to do this dance in every country where they want to sell the iPhone.

Apple iPhone Webapps are Live

Apple has created a searchable directory of mary various online web applications. The service is available at http://www.apple.com/webapps/, and offers over 200 (!) online applications. We had considered doing an online application database very early on, but we didn't. And it now makes me happy that we didn't, for very real. All of the iPhone application list sites are now competitors with a company with very deep pockets.

Fruit Baskets: Apple Set to Open iPhone to Software Development. They Totally Are

Rumors are like falling apples in an orchard - some are perfectly edible, while most are wormy and end up on the ground rotting away, eaten by insects. The Apple rumor mill yields bushel baskets full of both kinds. Today's rumor comes courtesy of Glenn Fleishman of TidBits, who claims to have heard from "sources" (mwaha) that Apple is very close to making a public announcement regarding native application development on iPhone. Naturally his "source" is vague and void of details, which makes it totally credible!

Someone has devised a clever yet altogether impractical way of getting 3G speeds on iPhone by pairing it with a Windows Mobile Smartphone equipped with HSDPA. Now, rather than go into details I'll simply refer you to the the website to see and judge for yourself. And I won't be putting this process to the test because my sole Windows Mobile device, a newly purchased AT&T Tilt, is being returned due to the fact it is an utter piece of bovine anal excrement.

For those who crave adventure and just love cramming radioactive gadgets in your pants, go for it. I won't stop you.

MoMuni Helps Lost San Franciscans Catch the Bus, But Can't Prevent Sitting Next to This Guy

Ah, the joys of public transportation. Nothing else quite compares to the stimulating experience of standing in the company of drunks and derelicts at a bus stop late in waining hours of Saturday night, waiting for a fuming smoke filled bus to arrive, concluded with sharing a body fluid-stained seat with the unwashed, unwashed masses. But enough about my college days.
