    Atari sues German website over review of potentially pirated game

    From here. There’s a tactic in the movie industry where a movie is released quietly without press previews. When this happens it’s because the movie is a stinker and they want to put as much space between the first critical line (“I’d rather wet my pants and sit in my own filth than recommend that you watch this movie.” – Myra Conklin, Cat Fancy) and the first… Read More

  • Deutsche Telekom hits the 70,000 iPhone mark in just eleven weeks

    [photopress:germaniphone.jpg,full,right]It’s been eleven weeks since the iPhone invaded Germany, and in that time Deutsche Telekom has sold 70,000 units.

    Apple's iPhone to Germany's T-Mobile

    If you live in Germany, want an iPhone, and are okay with T-Mobile, then this post is for you. Otherwise, enjoy some Steve Vai. Ok, now that the American’s aren’t reading, I can tell you that the iPhone is almost certainly coming to T-Mobile in Europe, and soon. Not just because Jobs was seen toting one around Berlin recently, but because some fool datamonkey accidentally pre-posted it… Read More
