#Palm Prices Plummet – No #iPhone Killer Here

January 22nd, 2010 Comments off

When your price collapses this quickly you know you’re not an iPhone killer.  A few short months after their well accepted launch, the Palm Pre family of smartphones are hitting the bargain bin with a thud.

Verizon is n a price cutting spree for sure but now the Pre is up on a buy 1 get 1 free deal.  Not the ld Pre, but the new Plus models.  Given the buzz at launch you’d have thought that these puppies would have held their price longer.

the iPhone shrugs…

September 18th, 2009 Comments off

Lately I’ve noticed a depressing plumet in half-way objective blogging about Apple on certain “mainstream” web sites.  All too often are they rushing to beat the drum on how Snow Leopard is just like Windows 7 – a bug fix…  Dream on people.

Intel: A CPU in Every Pocket by 2011 #tech #iphone #smartphone

May 17th, 2009 Comments off

One of things you have to trade off as a tech vendor is what you share with your partners & customers and what you keep secret.  Apple is at one end of the spectrum with their legendary secrecy.  Intel might be thinking about taking a page from their book as their small form-factor CPU roadmap for the next two years gets leaked to the press.   Read more…

Apple Adds Chinese Handwriting. Could this be more proof of a Mac tablet?

May 8th, 2009 Comments off

apple-logo-thumb.pngThere have been rumors flying around for months (if not years) about the “soon the be released” Apple tablet computer.  The closest we’ve come so far to actually getting such a device has been the iPhone.  Portable, connected and pretty full featured, internet-wise and built on the cult of the Newton..  However at heart, it’s still a phone (albeit a frakkin amazing one! – yes, Fanboi – yawn).

May 7th, 2009 Comments off

untitled2

The faceBook app for Windows Mobile is finally released. There are a ton of reviews of it out there so I won’t try to repeat them or paraphrase. I guess really all you need to do is take a look (click the images for a closer look). WinMob on the left vs iPhone on the right. Which would you chose? (PS. I’m not a PC!)

If, like me, you’re a fan of 80’s music you’ll know, unless you’ve been living under a rock, that Depeche Mode have just released their long awaited follow up to “Playing the Angel” called “Sounds of the Universe”. I’ve got to admit that the album is still growing on me with the first single release “Wrong” being a huge stand out. Read more…

Here’s some interesting data on mobile device adoption.  The iPhone and iPod Touch combined generate 6 times the amount of web traffic than Motorola’s Razr, even though there are more than 6 times the number of Razr’s in circulation.

Goes to show, Steve is right.  The software IS the user experience.

‘Upload Video’ Screen Suggests Video Capabilities in Next iPhone – Mac Rumors

iPhone 3.0 - Video Upload

We’re coming up on the anniversary of the iPhone 3G announcement at last years WWDC.  It is understandable therefore that rumors are already starting to circulate about the next revision of the iPhone hardware.

Macrumors via Engadget have a nice screen shot of a video upload feature that isn’t live in the iPhone 3.0 beta but is included in the software.  The current iPhone hardware doesn’t support video capture (at least not up to Apple’s standards) so this could point to some pretty nice new features coming when the new hardware ships.

iPhone 3.0

To be honest I surprised it took them this long to get started on it.  Apple probably needs to figure out which one of its “we’re sworn to secrecy under pain of death” developers is either the hacker or the hacker’s friend but in the meantime it looks like the wheels are turning to liberate the next generation of iPhones from the evil clutches of AT&T
