RUMOR: Blackberry Storm to be priced higher than iPhone

RUMOR: Blackberry Storm to be priced higher than iPhone
Now that companies have had time to really think about how to respond to the iPhone we’re starting to see some true competition emerge. The T-Mobile G1 is certainly a contender, and another device that has everyone talking is the upcoming Blackberry Storm. The device is RIM’s answer to the iPhone, and there has been Read more…

Apple rejects Opera Browser, not surprising, but still upsetting

Apple rejects Opera Browser, not surprising, but still upsetting
According to a New York Times profile, Opera Software has built a version of their mobile browser for the iPhone – but Apple won’t allow it in the App Store. Frankly, I find this appalling. Apple’s resistance to competing apps such as email applications, web browsers and other apps is shameful, and it’s not benefitting Read more…

Does your iPhone make you less social?

Does your iPhone make you less social?
I should start off by saying that I’m not a terribly social guy to begin with. That might seem surprising with the multiple blogs, podcast, and all of that – but I normally keep to myself. More and more, though, I find that I have my head down stuck in my iPhone – and it’s Read more…

If you’re upset about no Firewire on the new Macbooks…don’t buy one!

In the world of Apple blogging it is easy to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Since the release of the new Macbook and Macbook Pros there has been an uproar online about the fact that the new Macbooks don’t have Firewire support. The reason for this clear, and simple. The Macbook is Read more…

T-Mobile claims Android pre-orders are stronger than expected

T-Mobile claims Android pre-orders are stronger than expected
T-Mobile is shouting to the heavens that pre-orders of the T-Mobile G1, the first phone to feature Google’s Android OS, are stronger than they expected, and they can no longer guarantee that you’ll get one on Oct. 22nd if you pre-order it…but they do say that you’ll be able to walk into a store on Read more…

Apple’s not releasing a ‘netbook’ – here’s why…

Apple's not releasing a 'netbook' - here's why...
‘Netbooks’ are doing really well right now. If you look at Amazon’s Top 10 selling computers they are ALL netbooks (except for the Macbook – which is more than twice the price of many of the other machines in the list) – so I can see where the rumor that Apple might be throwing their Read more…

Thoughts on the App Store and the “Podcaster” rejection

Thoughts on the App Store and the "Podcaster" rejection
The subject of what Apple should and should not allow in the App Store has become a very “hot button” topic. The closest thing I can compare it to are politics. Politics is one of the areas where very smart people often have very dumb arguments. What I mean by that is that many of Read more…

Apple’s HD TV Shows – Are they worth the extra buck?

My favorite television show of all time is “The Office”. My favorite television show from my childhood is “Knight Rider”. So, as you can imagine, I was really excited to see that NBC is back in iTunes. Yesterday evening I spent a little bit of time with iTunes 8, my AppleTV, and HD downloads, to Read more…

Why have the MobileMe blog updates stopped? It’s not fixed yet!

As I sit here (extremely frustrated) wishing that Mail would actually work, I can’t help but wonder why we haven’t seen an update on the MobileMe News page since August 29th. It can’t be because MobileMe is fixed. If it was fixed, I wouldn’t have to keep a browser window open to use the mail Read more…

Best Buy offers Scummy deal to iPhone Buyers

Best Buy offers Scummy deal to iPhone Buyers
Geek Squad doesn’t exactly have the best reputation. To me, when I think of them, I think of people being charged a ridiculous amount of money for very basic services. Best Buy is always happy to find a very simple way to take people’s money – especially those people who think that computers and complicated Read more…
