    Android v. iPhone Religious Battle Rages Within TechCrunch

    If you think the posts about me quitting the iPhone are just a stunt, think again. I’ve been using the TMobile myTouch for a couple of weeks now and haven’t looked back at the iPhone at all (background apps + full Google Voice Integration is awesome). But resident Apple fanboi and general iPhone enthusiast MG Siegler refuses to agree that Android > iPhone. We spend hours debating… Read More

    Facebook 3.0 For iPhone Submitted. Now Let's Count The Days Until It's Available

    Facebook has submitted v. 3.0 of their iPhone application to Apple, Joe Hewitt says via Twitter: “Just uploaded Facebook for iPhone 3.0 to the App Store for review. :)” Hewitt also says he’ll post screen shots and more detais on this Facebook page for the iPhone app next week, and that he’s looking forward to getting started on v. 3.1 tomorrow. We’ve been tracking… Read More

  • The Case Against Apple Is Just As Much A Case For Apple

    The Case Against Apple Is Just As Much A Case For Apple

    I’ve had a half dozen or so longer posts about Apple brewing in my head the past couple of weeks. There is no shortage of controversy surrounding the company right now thanks largely to the hugely popular and hugely unpopular aspects of the iPhone. But Jason Calacanis’ post yesterday entitled “The Case Against Apple-in Five Parts” serves as a great springboard for… Read More

  • How I Learned To Quit The iPhone And Love Google Voice

    How I Learned To Quit The iPhone And Love Google Voice

    At the end of July I declared my intention to quit the iPhone and AT&T, port my mobile phone number to Google Voice and use any mobile device that I pleased (or lots of them at once) in the future. Like others, I will no longer blindly follow all things Apple. Today I’m pleased to report a status update on those efforts: complete. I am no longer a member of the Cult of iPhone. Porting… Read More

    Will Apple release an 8GB iPhone 3GS? If we’re to believe this photo, sent to BGR from an operative deep inside Canada’s Rogers, then yes. Yes it will. Read More

  • Ustream Finally Launches A Recording iPhone App. No Live Video, But A Lot Of Options.

    Ustream Finally Launches A Recording iPhone App. No Live Video, But A Lot Of Options.

    For several months now, Ustream has had an iPhone app that allows you to view video from the service. But “view” is the keyword there. You could only watch it, you could not record and send your own video back from the iPhone. But starting today, you finally can. The new Ustream Recorder is a free application available in Apple’s App Store that allows you to send video from… Read More

    Roger McNamee: Judgment Day

    “You know the beautiful thing: June 29, 2009, is the two- year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone,” Elevation Partners (which owns a huge portion of Palm) co-founder Roger McNamee told Bloomberg in March. “Not one of those people will still be using an iPhone a month later.” Yes, that would be today. So how did McNamee’s claim turn out? Well… Read More

    First Rule Of Apple Earnings Calls: You Do Not Talk About The $99 iPhone

    When Apple announced that it would start selling the iPhone 3G for $99 at this year’s WWDC conference, the room buzzed about the possibility. Finally, there would really be an iPhone for under $100. And so not surprisingly, everyone wants to know how it’s selling. But don’t bother asking Apple about it, because you’ll get nothing from them, as we learned on the… Read More

    AT&T Is A Big, Steaming Heap Of Failure

    When Om Malik of GigaOM said he was breaking up with his iPhone 5 months ago because of the failures of AT&T, I must admit, I thought he was overreacting. I was wrong. Since I switched to AT&T from Verizon just over 2 years ago to get the iPhone (which, of course, AT&T has exclusively in the U.S.), there have been no shortage of shortcomings by AT&T. But as of late, I’ve… Read More

    Google Brings Location To The Mobile Web On The iPhone

    Google’s updates surrounding location are now coming fast and furious. Just a few days ago it added location to Google Maps for the Chrome and Firefox browsers. Today, it brings location to the mobile web on the iPhone. If you have the new iPhone 3.0 software and go to Google’s homepage in Safari, you’ll notice a new message below the search box that reads, “New! Try… Read More

    12seconds Lays An iPhone Video Messenger On Top Of Twitter's Social Graph

    12seconds has had an iPhone app for a while now. Unfortunately, it was fairly crippled because iPhones couldn’t shoot video, so you had to take still pictures and make 12 second collages. Now, with the iPhone 3GS you can shoot video. And so 12seconds is making its app a whole lot better. Unveiled today at our Real-Time Stream CrunchUp event, the “12seconds Video Messenger for… Read More

    OWLE: A Mount That Turns Your iPhone 3GS Into A Mobile Video Workhorse

    We’ve made no secret of our admiration of the iPhone 3GS’s video capabilities — Apple has managed to integrate a video camera that’s both easy to use and surprisingly high quality into an already-stellar device. But for all its merits, the iPhone 3GS suffers from being, well, a phone. No matter how good the phone’s video quality is, it’s still prone to… Read More

    iPhone 3GS: too hot or not too hot?

    There’s a bit of a kerfluffle arising from the discolored iPhone 3GSes out there. Some users insist that the new phone is to fast for its britches and is cooking the case, but one Apple technician seems to think it could be the result of faulty cases. Really, sir. I find your ideas fascinating and would like to subscribe to your newsletter. Read More

  • Purplera1n+ultrasn0w unlocks iPhone 3GS

    Only a couple of days after George Hotz became the first hacker to release a jailbreak app for the iPhone 3GS on Windows, there’s a Mac-compatible version out too. This time, Hotz got some help from two fellow coders to be able to please the Mac folks, but he also made some improvements to the Windows version. Happy jailbreaking, and in case you didn’t know yet: happy unlocking too. Read More
