iPod Nano owner doesn't get his exploded iPod replaced...and for good reason
The Consumerist has a very long winded document from an individual who’s first generation iPod Nano exploded.

Is the iPhone a complete computer solution for the 60+ crowd?

Is the iPhone a complete computer solution for the 60+ crowd?
I had an interesting conversation with my father yesterday. I was trying to explain to him the idea that I had for an application for the iPhone. It’s a simple idea that I thought would be easy for him to understand, and it was just one part of the larger conversation we were having. You Read more…

MobileMe continues to Disappoint Me.

Yesterday afternoon my mail just stopped working. MobileMe went down, and there was no way – not through iPhone, Desktop, or Webmail to access my email. Since I depend on my email heavily for work, to say that it was a bit upsetting would be an understatement. To make matters worse, Gmail went down at Read more…

Rogers offers new “limited time” plan – but IT’S A TRICK – don’t do it!

Rogers offers new "limited time" plan - but IT'S A TRICK - don't do it!
All the negative backlash that Rogers has received over the recently announced iPhone rate plans, plus the rumors that Apple is diverting iPhones to other areas because they expect Rogers sales to be minimal have caused the company to rethink their data plan strategy…but they still just don’t get it. The company has decided to Read more…

OpenMoko's "Neo Freerunner" makes for an interesting iPhone Alternative
Last week I wrote a post here about how the LG Dare really wanted to be an iPhone. The point of the post was not that the Dare is a bad phone, just that it was disappointing to me to see LG create a phone that tried so hard to look like the iPhone (right Read more…

Christmas in May, June or July at the Apple Store, Boston

by Jeff Cutler When I’m sitting in line outside the Boston Apple Store’s Boylston Street entrance on May 15, I’m going to be blogging and probably Twittering about the experience. It won’t be totally about the free T-shirt I’ll get at 6PM when the doors are reportedly going to open for the first time to Read more…

Apple is not “abandoning” its exclusive carrier model anytime soon.

I’ve read online in a few places, including Apple Insider, that Apple is “abandoning” its multiple carrier model once the 3G iPhone is released. It’s amazing to me the kind of blatant lies that can come out of the simplest bits of news. It has been announced that that Vodafone is releasing the iPhone in Read more…

Apple is losing money on iTunes Movies – Will it pay off?

It was reported late last week that Apple is paying $16.00 for every $14.99 movie that it sells in iTunes under its new deal with major studios like 20th Century Fox, The Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros., and Paramount Pictures…just to name a few. All the major studios are involved…and now its clear why. Apple Read more…

Unimaginative Apple parody in ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’

The folks at Rockstar games, apparently, are not Apple fans. TUAW thinks their parody is brilliant. I’m not as impressed. Drew over at TV Jab and I have been debating and discussing this game for weeks because I don’t have a very high opinion on of it. That was before the Apple parody, mind you, Read more…

AT&T to cut iPhone price to $199 – right after pigs fly

Yup – this rumor is everywhere. I know, I know…you want it to be true. I want it to be true – we ALL want it to be true. BUT…do you really think the 3G iPhone is going to come out at a price point that is $200 dollars cheaper than the current model? Sure, Read more…
