The New York Times Makes Writing iPhone Non-News Easy

The headline of today's NYT iPhone story was promising: "Hollywood Seeks Ways to Fit Its Content Into the Realm of the iPhone." On the heels of last week's GooTube-on-your-iPhone confirmation and coming from a legitimate newspaper (not, you know, a blog) it seemed like it might contain some actual, you know, news. Not… » 6/25/07 10:10am 6/25/07 10:10am

What's Changed in the iPhone's UI Since January? At Least 16 Things

With just a day to go before the WWDC and nineteen before the Second Coming, the thick fog of Apple-OCD is smothering the land. So I'm surprised it took this long for an Apple-juice-addled obsessive to compile a list of (fairly minor) UI changes made in the iPhone between its January debut and the… » 6/10/07 4:44pm 6/10/07 4:44pm

Quanta Does Or Does Not Have Contract To Make First And/Or Second Gen…

The closer we get to the iPhone's launch (June 11th? June 20th? June 37th?), the more everybody gets excited over the smallest scraps of information pertaining to the Phone of Phones.

Mysterious Google iPhone Apps Still Un-Unveiled

Briar Dudley of the Seattle Times interviewed Glenn Lurie, AT&T President of National Distribution, about the Jesus Phone. The meat of the piece kinda sorta confirms that there are more unannounced iPhone apps, which we kinda sorta heard about during the Q2 earnings call.

I predict lines of fanboys, much like at the PS3 launch day, with lots of crime and anarchy to go along with. Isn't this one case where preorders make a lot of sense?

First Kitty Photo Taken With Not iPhone

Why is that dude is smiling? Is it because he's eating yummy toast? Is it because his hair is as silken as a Arabian stallion's mane? Maybe. But its also possible he's getting his mugshot taken by a shiny Apple iPhone — now uploaded to Flickr and found by internet stalker Mobile Guerilla after a month of searching. Is… » 4/29/07 3:27pm 4/29/07 3:27pm

iPhone Non-News: Suits, Fake Wrist Watches and Non-Impact on Earnings

iPhone UI Cribbed for Watches: It was only a matter of time before someone stole the iPhone UI for a watch. Unfortunately, this product has a video page that says "coming soon" and has the Sony Ericsson Walkman UI on another screen. What we're seeing is a fake of a fake. This is why its non-news.
