One of those analyst types from Bear Sterns just wrapped up a meeting with Apple and the company said that its iPhone will be available for purchase at its 181 retail stores and AT&T’s 1,840 stores. No other store will sell the phone, don’t you know. In… Read More

  • The DNS Disaster (with Contest!)


    I’ve been a Bellsouth DSL subscriber for about 10 years now. It has at times been a tumultuous relationship. In the beginning I gamed quite a bit and there were issues, but after a year of complaining everything balanced out. It’s been great since then. Over the years I’ve upgraded consistently to the highest package available. I currently subscribe to the DSL Xtreme 6.0… Read More

  • AT&T Introduces Mobile Backup

    I can’t tell you the number of times people have come up to me asking how to recover phone numbers because they dropped their phone in the toilet. Maybe they should stop using their phones while on the crapper. Either way, anyone with AT&T can now start using their phone without worrying about losing valuable information thanks to Mobile Backup. Read More

  • Apple Hints At iTMS Video Rentals, Other Stuff

    Talk about the vaguest of vague here, but apparently Apple is interested in bringing video rentals to the iTunes Music Store sometime during 2008.

  • AT&T/Cingular Says No Deep Linking. Whaaa!?

    Remember the Web as it was in the 1990s? We were all getting our feet wet, figuring out how it was going to work. This is part of what makes the Web so powerful, the fact that it’s always evolving. One thing that keeps the motor running is unrestricted linking. You can link to any story on this blog, and we can link to any story on your site. We don’t have to like what you link to… Read More

  • Rumor: AT&T's iPhone Displays to be Insane, Fancy, Extravagant, Large

    AT&T is getting all the hot phone love this summer, from the Curve to the iPhone. The question remains though: To which brand does the carrier’s loyalties lie? We ourselves find it hard to care. The Curve has a large AT&T marketing budget behind it, but reports are surfacing that it pales next to the inevitable onslaught of iPhone pain we’re about to experience. Boy Genius… Read More

  • Nokia N75 Lands at AT&T

  • AT&T Will Market iPhone To Business Users, Analysts Don't Want It

    AT&T, the company formerly known as Cingular, will in fact market the iPhone to business users, making Microsoft’s recent claims all the more relevant. If this seems dumb to you — because of the lack of third-party apps, non-replaceable battery and new, untested operating system — then it certainly seems dumb to many of those analysts we always read about. One of which… Read More

  • iPhone Released on June 11 Says Cingular

    The iPhone will come out on June 11. Someone over at CNET had the bright of calling Cingular (well, AT&T) to ask them when the phone would come out, and the voice on the other end of the line revealed the June 11 date. The date makes sense: Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference begins that same day and, well, we (save for Dvorak) know it’s coming out in June at some… Read More
