  • Silly Valentine's Day Cake iPhone Cover

    I don’t know which iPhone 4 cover is sillier, the sushi version we showed you last week or this new Valentine’s Day cake-style model (in both cases, buyers get a cover with realistic-looking (plastic) food glued to it). With the Valentine’s Day model, you get strawberries, cranberries etc. placed on top of a thin layer of “chocolate cake”. Read More

  • Is Consumer Reports Right In Warning Against The Verizon iPhone?

    It seems we aren’t the only ones to think it’s wise to hold off buying the Verizon iPhone. Consumer Reports recently made a recommendation against buying the highly anticipated device. Apple can’t seem to get any slack from the CR guys; when iPhone 4 first came out, CR finally made the recommendation against buying it, though after a few tries. Read More

  • An iPhone On Verizon? Sold.

    An iPhone On Verizon? Sold.

    Well, I hopped on a last-minute flight across the country, got stuck in a snow storm, had my flight home cancelled, had to find a new hotel, and now I think I’m getting sick. But it was all worth it. Because I got what I came for: the Verizon iPhone. Actually, I don’t have one just yet. Like all non-Verizon customers, I’ll have to wait until February 10 to get one… Read More

  • T-Mobile Wastes No Time Taking A Shot At iPhone On Verizon (And AT&T)

    Well you have to give T-Mobile one thing: they sure are quick. It was only yesterday that Verizon announced that the iPhone 4 was coming to their network in a few weeks. That means that both AT&T and Verizon, the two largest carriers in the U.S., will now have the device. Meanwhile, the two smaller ones, Sprint and T-Mobile, will not (at least not yet). But T-Mobile believes they can… Read More

  • So When Do The "Droid Did" Verizon iPhone Commercials Start?

    So When Do The "Droid Did" Verizon iPhone Commercials Start?

    Maybe you heard, Verizon finally has the iPhone. Or it will, in a few weeks. And you know what that means: it’s time to advertise the hell out of that bad boy. But don’t be surprised if it’s Verizon doing more of the pushing than Apple. Reports today have Verizon putting their significant “marketing muscle” behind the device in the coming weeks. This should be… Read More

  • How Personal Hotspot Works On The Verizon iPhone (Pictures)

    There’s actually only one key difference between the Verizon iPhone 4 and the AT&T iPhone 4 (well, besides the network, obviously). But it’s a big one: Personal Hotspots. Yes, the Verizon iPhone will come with this killer feature that will allow it to become an internet hub for up to 5 WiFi devices to connect to. And while there is no word on pricing yet (neither Apple nor… Read More

  • One More Thing: The Verizon iPhone Runs iOS 4.2.5

    In the demo area which Verizon and Apple opened up after their Verizon iPhone 4 unveiling today, we got some hands-on time with the actual device. As we were told during the event, the device is largely the same as the iPhone 4 on AT&T’s network, with some slight changes to the antenna on the side. And there’s one more thing: the Verizon iPhone is running an unreleased version… Read More

  • Why No LTE iPhone For Now? "Design Compromises" Apple Would Not Make.

    Why No LTE iPhone For Now? "Design Compromises" Apple Would Not Make.

    Today during Verizon and Apple’s press conference in New York City announcing the iPhone 4 on the carrier’s network, Apple COO Tim Cook fielded a question that has been on a lot of people’s minds: why won’t the iPhone on Verizon be a next-generation LTE version? “The first generation LTE chipsets force some design compromises. Some of which we would not… Read More

  • Verizon And Apple Began Working Together To Make The CDMA iPhone In 2008

    Verizon And Apple Began Working Together To Make The CDMA iPhone In 2008

    Today at the Verizon event in New York City, Verizon President Lowell McAdam took the stage to present the worst kept secret in the tech world: the iPhone on Verizon’s network. But what you may not know is that Verizon and Apple have been working together on the device since 2008, McAdam said. “Our strategic relationship with Apple has evolved over the past 2 years. Before many of… Read More

  • Verizon Will Trip AT&T With The iPhone — Then Point And Laugh With Unlimited Data

    Verizon Will Trip AT&T With The iPhone — Then Point And Laugh With Unlimited Data

    Uh oh, AT&T. It’s looking very, very, very, very likely that the event Verizon is holding on Tuesday morning in New York City is all about unveiling a CDMA iPhone that will work on the carrier’s network. And for those of us who have long suffered and struggled with AT&T’s network to be able to use the iPhone (particularly those of us in cities like San Francisco and… Read More

  • There's A Verizon Event. Apple Fanboys Are Invited. See Where I'm Going Here?

    There's A Verizon Event. Apple Fanboys Are Invited. See Where I'm Going Here?

    Hmmm. Earlier today, BGR published a story that Apple is looking to launch the iPhone on Verizon’s network as soon as February 3. That’s in line with an earlier report about no-vacation windows for Apple retail employees. And now something curious has just appeared in my inbox. An invite to a Verizon event, taking place in New York City on this coming Tuesday, January 11. Could it be? Read More

  • Verizon iPhone Gets Fixed Antenna? [Video]

    Not only do we AT&T iPhone 4 users have issues when “death-gripping” the antenna, we can’t even get service here at CES. Read More

  • Japanese iPhone 4 Sushi Cover With Sushi Glued To It

    I know this is very silly, but here we go: Japan-based gadget maker Strapya World is selling some very unique iPhone 4 acessories [pre-orders can be made in English], namely the so-called “Japanese iPhone 4 Sushi Covers”. They turn your handset into a “plate of sushi”, which actually has two pieces of pretty realistic-looking (plastic) sushi glued to it. Read More

  • An iPhone Lover's Take On The Nexus S

    An iPhone Lover's Take On The Nexus S

    There’s a scene in Iron Man 2 in which Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) shows off the mechanical soliders he has been working on — his would-be “Iron Man-killers”. Unfortunately, while they may look somewhat impressive, his machines malfunction and the demo goes horribly awry. His knock-offs are junk. This scene reminds me a lot of what the first Android phone, the G1, was… Read More

  • iPhone 4 And Accessories Top eBay's Most Wanted For 2010

    In rather unsurprising news, the world’s most popular smartphone was the most popular item on eBay this year — or rather, it was likely the most popular search term. I suspect a vast majority of iPhone 4s were bought by more traditional means — but accessories like cases, headphones, and car kits thrive in the eBay environment. The rest of the items seem to follow larger… Read More

  • The iPhone 4 Diamond Spider, for the Nigerian Prince in your life

    Luxury phones, eh? There’s something peculiar about the idea that glueing bits of shiny mineral to a phone increases its worth by 25x. I mean, I know that diamonds are rare, and I know that they are representative of your social status, but I just can’t comprehend the value in shelling out £15,000 for a device that otherwise costs £599. Ok, so they throw in a cool phone number… Read More

  • Vader Waves Hand. "There Is No iPhone." But There Is — In A Big Way In Japan.

    Vader Waves Hand. "There Is No iPhone." But There Is — In A Big Way In Japan.

    Remember back in 2008 when there was a lot of talk about how the iPhone would flop in Japan? 91 percent of Japanese would not be buying the device, said one survey. By 2009, that talk inevitably turned to how it had already flopped. With some even writing about how the Japanese people “hate” the device. Then something funny happened. That kind of talk abruptly stopped. And for… Read More

  • iOS 4.2 Update Wipe Out Your iPhone Music? Try This.

    As you’re probably well aware by now, iOS 4.2 (technically, iOS 4.2.1) has been released by Apple today. The update unifies iOS across the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad for the first time. But it also comes with an annoying bug that some users are seeing. After you update to the new OS, if you load the iPod (Music) app, you may see a message stating that your currently have “No… Read More

  • In The Era Of The Connected Camera, The Point & Shoot Commits Seppuku

    In The Era Of The Connected Camera, The Point & Shoot Commits Seppuku

    The big brand camera companies are committing seppuku in front of our eyes. It’s fascinating. Last week, I bought a brand new Canon S95 camera. It’s a great point & shoot. Maybe the best out there right now. It captures beautiful 10-megapixel images. It’s great in low-light. It’s fast. And it shoots HD video. I anticipate I’ll take about 5 percent of my… Read More
