24 Jul

Iphone-4-case-program-email

of course there’s an app for that…

here’s how it works.

go to the site for the program: http://www.apple.com/iphone/case-program/. the program offers iPhone 4 customers an app store app that lets them apply for their free iPhone 4 bumper case.

  1. download the free iPhone 4 case program app from the app store. 
  2. launch the app on your iPhone 4 and sign in using your iTunes account or apple id. 
  3. select your bumper or case. 
  4. that’s it.

what about if you already bought a bumper case?

Apple: “People Are Still Just Trying to Catch Up With the First iPhone” [BLOCKQUOTE]

I love this image.

It makes me smile every time I see it. I don’t know if it’s because of the Futurama style of the drawing, Windows being portrayed by a Monkey, or the laser beam coming out of the iPhone 🙂

AT&T MMS launch: How was it for iPhone users?

28 Sep

So, what’s the fallout of the AT& MMS update from last Friday? It seems that according to initial feedback nothing too exciting happened. There were just a few isolated reports of failures to get the update, failures to get the MMS functions after an update, and late delivery of MMS messages.
According to a non-scientific poll conducted by TUAW.com it seems that 46% of respondents had no issues at all and an additional 15% had initial issues that went away.

Is this a WIN for AT&T? In my opinion no because getting this right was expected after such a long delay. The iPhone is finally capable of performing rudimentary functions that any 13 year old’s cell phone that they sneak into school on a daily basis.

How did the AT&T MMS release go for you?

It worked well. No problems 5739 (45.9%)
It seemed slow at first, but got better 1827 (14.6%)
MMS is missing some features I wanted 237 (1.9%)
MMS isn’t of any interest to me. I use email for sending pix 1912 (15.3%)
Doesn’t run on my older iPhone. I’m not happy 708 (5.7%)
Slow delivery yesterday. Much better today 795 (6.4%)
Not happy at all 1297 (10.4%

Is AT&T ready for iPhone MMS rollout tomorrow?

25 Sep


We’ve just heard from AT&T that new carrier settings for the iPhone 3G and 3GS will be available “late morning” Pacific Time (which would be early afternoon Eastern) this Friday, September 25, which will finally enable MMS support. Owners will have to tether up to iTunes to grab those settings, so fish out your cable (as if you don’t have it permanently attached to your machine already) and make sure you’ve got some solid time in front of the computer to check for the update over and over (and over) again, alright?

How long have iPhone owners been waiting on this? Too long!!!! Still WAY to overpriced. AT&T, quick question: Where would you be today without the iPhone? Huh?!?! This could be potentially disastrous for the AT&T brand if they don’r pull this off – no wonder they are scared right now. We’ll know more in 24 hours.

Is Apple toying with Google? [iPhone and Google Voice]

21 Sep


According to Google’s statement from last Friday, in contrast to previous statements Apple rejected the Google Voice app outright.
So, it Google yelling: “You’re a Liar!” to Apple? Sort of, but not fully. This may be the first chapter in the Apple Google war of the second decade of the 21st Century. It all started when Eric Schmidt, Google’s CEO, left Apple’s board earlier this year after sitting on it since 2006.
The issue is that Apple ahs always run a very tight ship, maybe a little too tights. But, now that all of a sudden there are millions of Apple users via the iPhone they are just “enjoying” this tight ship that Apple runs. There really is nothing wrong with what Apple is doing – it is doing waht Steve Jobs loves: Controlling the end-user experience to the t. However, why doesn’t Apple simply come out and admit to this? Well, becasue there would be about a millin and one lawsuits files that day by companies that want their apps or programs to run on the iPhone regardless of what Apple thinks.
This brings us to the problem that Apple does not have the structures in place to properly monitor app submissions to the app store. Apple is making 30% of every app sold, so wouldn’t it be in their own best interest to approve as many apps as possibel to increase revenue? That’s where Steve Jobs and his tight ship come in.
So, in other words what we are witnessing is not the prelude to Google versus Apple, but rather Google versus Steve Jobs.
Since this story broke laste last week, Apple has again denied rejecting the Google Voice App to spite Google.

Awesome Recession Cardboard iPhone Case

If I don’t find a new apartment in NY soon, I would be living in a fridge box for a while—which, mind you, would be bigger than most places here. One that matches this do-it-yourself cardboard iPhone case.

10 cases for $8 is not good enough for hobomodo, but cheap enough even if it’s not water proof. [Case-Mate via Oh Gizmo! via Dvice]

I need to get one of these!
