Dear iPhone Users, We Somehow Still Don't Know that You Want Cut and…

AT&T is circulating a survey among some of its longer-term iPhone users with a checklist of features they'd like to see. It's a follow-up to a similar survey a few months back, and apparently also serves to judge reactions to the 2.1 firmware. Some of the most regular complaints make the list, including picture… » 10/25/08 9:00pm 10/25/08 9:00pm

iPhone Firmware 2.2 Beta 2 Goes Out to Developers: Still No Copy/Paste

So here's the deal. You don't get copy/paste. You don't get image or videos over MMS. And you still can't type your emails or text messages in landscape mode. BUT!

It's not just the iPhone that's being cloned: now this black 8GB Nokia N95 clone has joined the party. With dual slider keypads, a two megapixel camera with flash, another small camera, media player, Bluetooth and microSD card slot, it's actually not all that bad. It doesn't have the 8GB, of course.

'Fantastic 4', 'Day After Tomorrow' Highlight More Blu-ray Movie…

More trouble for Blu-ray comes as newer titles Fantastic 4 and The Day After Tomorrow are running into playback problems with Samsung's BDP-1200 and LG's BH100. This is different from the previous problems with disc extras that were unplayable (which had more to do with BD-Java spec incompatibility) in that it's the… » 10/04/07 7:30pm 10/04/07 7:30pm
