  • Dr. Martin Cooper on the future of "handsets"


    Engineer and all-round-nice-guy Marty Cooper told some gathered reporters and industry folks that he likes the iPhone… and Samsung and Motorola phones, but for different reasons.

The corp… Read More

  • Rumor: iPhone, iPod Touch to get price drop

  • Semi go smashy smashy on iPhone, iPhone victorious

    I wouldn’t have believed it but it looks like this iPhone survived a meeting with a semi with few ill effects.
