  • Streaming Internet radio coming to iPhones soon?

    You don’t need us to make outlandish claims and start insane Internet rumors. No, you need Zatz to do it, and today he has.

  • Some Guy: "The iPhone Winning 'Invention of the Year' is an Embarrassment"… of great ideaness!


    Gregory Ng isn’t like us. He doesn’t understand what’s going down in the world today. He’s tuned out, not connected. When Time announced that the iPhone was the invention of the year, people were all like “Awwww yeah!” and we were all like “Yeah, bay-bee” — mostly me because the rest of the guys were all like “Awwww… Read More

  • iLounge's 2008 iPod+iPhone Buyer's Guide takes me back, still looks good

    Before I got involved in this wacky world of tech writing, I was a big fan of iLounge’s holiday buying guide. (I think they were still called iPodlounge back then.)

  • Retro iPhone mod

    Wait a sec…is that an iPhone or a Newton?? Ah, I see. It’s still an iPhone, just fitted with a crafty mod made by Mark Hoekstra. How’d he get the colorful Apple logo from the 1980s on his phone?

  • Sad clown: No cross Mail.app/iPhone transmission

    So maybe everything isn’t totally rosy in Leopard world. Apple promised we’d be able to sync notes from our iPhones to Mail.app but it turns out this is impossible.

The notes appear in your mailbox as a mail message, provided you’re not… Read More

  • Apple: 250,000 unlocked iPhones in the wild

    Just how many iPhone have been unlocked by pesky AT&T haters? Apple’s guessing a quarter of a million, which comes out to one out of every six of the 1.4 million that have been sold. If you ask me, that sounds low. I know not one, not two, but four unlockers, and they’re the majority of the iPhone owners I know. Granted, the group I run with tends to be a little geekier than… Read More
