What is bluejacking?

22nd February 2010 (howstuffworks.com)



The only difference between doorbell ditching and bluejacking is that bluejacking usually isn't done on your neighbor's lawn. Instead, a bluejacker will most likely camp out in crowded areas like shopping malls, airports and subway systems to find victims -- places with a potentially high percentage of people with Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Future of the Web: Location, Location, Location

1 July 2009 (wired.com)

When Sam Altman visits New York, he's never alone for very long. Altman is the 24-year-old CEO of Loopt, a company that makes a "location-aware" app for

mobile phones

that tracks where all of your friends are and what they're doing. "I'll pull it out on the ride in from the airport, and before I've even gotten to the city I'll have figured out who's nearby me, and we'll be making plans to get together that night," Altman told me. If he looks on his phone's map on a Saturday night, he can literally see groups forming in real time. "It's getting to the point now where if you want do something social, you have all this information about the world around you," he says. Location-based applications are quickly becoming the hot new thing on phones. Since many mobiles today — most particularly the

iPhone

— can determine their location via GPS chips (or pinging local cell towers and WiFi signals), they're spawning a whole new ecosystem of apps. There are social ones like Loopt or foursquare, which track the movement of friends as well as find-stuff tools like Yelp that locate top-rated bars and restaurants near you. According to web-research firm Compete, one in three mobile-phone owners uses location-based tools, and the number of apps has exploded from 500 to 2,500 since last October.

Nokia 6790 Surge / Mako gets a QIK onto the small screen

1 July 2009 (engadget.com)



Having already given you the AT&T spec sheet and images on this new Nokia, the only things missing are launch date, price, and a bit of video. Well, a janky QIK video just made its way to YouTube claiming that Nokia's Mako is coming to AT&T in mid-July as the 6790 Surge. It should be "priced pretty well" but those details haven't been finalized. So if a quick messaging device running S60 beneath a 2.4-inch 240x320 pixel display with HSDPA data and 2 megapixel camera is enough motivation to prompt another mouse-click then by all means, click through for the video overview provided after the break. Stay cool, bye.

How AT&T Stumbled Through the iPhone 3GS Launch

24 June 2009 (wired.com)



Over the weekend Apple waltzed through the latest iPhone launch, while its partner AT&T tripped and stumbled like a dance-school dropout. Perhaps AT&T didn’t feel the need to smooth its moves, because in three days Apple sold over a million iPhone 3GS units worldwide anyway. But in a surprising move, Apple two weeks ago pointed the harsh spotlight of scrutiny on its partner at the Worldwide Developers Conference by announcing that multimedia messaging and tethering on the

iPhone

would be immediately available for customers with several international carriers — but not for AT&T customers. As if the chorus of “boos” in the audience weren’t enough, AT&T soon after came under heavy fire when customers learned about an early-adoption fee — an extra $200 that iPhone 3G users would have to pay to upgrade to the latest iPhone 3GS handset. While AT&T has addressed both the lack of MMS (it’s coming, the company says) and the early-adoption fee (AT&T later offered the fully-subsidized new-customer price to a larger number of current customers), these are just two of the company’s many missteps around the iPhone 3GS launch.

Nokia N97 : A Tale of Two Bloggers

Review

Thomas, I hope this letter finds you well. I understand that you've received an N97 from Nokia Nederlands recently and was wondering what you thought of it? As luck would have it, I've happened across a unit myself -- the US was the first country to get them, interestingly, which is really big deal for a company accustomed to delivering its best hardware early and often to Europe. I've been flogging it for a few days now, just enough time to form some opinions.

The iPhone Is a Subscription

11 June 2009 (nytimes.com)

Debbie Galant, the baroness of Baristanet, the acid-tinged blog for my hometown, Montclair, N.J., sent me a message this morning, asking me to join a Facebook group protesting the pricing for

iPhone

owners who want to upgrade to the new model. She said, “Spread the word: You’re angry about the roll-out of the new iPhone, which makes current users second-class citizens.” Ms. Galant feels sucker-punched by Apple, which sent her a promotional e-mail luring her with the video capabilities of the new phone of the $199 price. She took the bait, only to see the price jump to $399 because she hadn’t finished her two-year contract. But the policies that Apple has worked out with AT&T may be far more consumer-friendly than average for the cellphone industry. As I’ve written before, in today’s world you don’t so much buy technology products as subscribe to them. And Apple’s iPhone pricing makes that especially clear.

iPhone 3GS price plan angers hardcore fans

10 June 2009 (wired.co.uk)



The new iPhone 3GS, announced yesterday, has already managed to upset a core group of fans: the early adopters who have bought each new model at launch. O2, the only network on which the

iPhone

is available, has said that existing iPhone owners will not be able to upgrade to the new phone until their contracts have expired. Since iPhone contracts last at least 18 months, that could leave them with a long wait. After the last upgrade, O2 let existing iPhone owners step up to the new 3G phone as long as they took out a new 18-month contract. O2 says that this was because the original iPhone was not subsidised by the network. True iPhone enthusiasts can buy themselves out of their contracts, but that would cost at least £30 per month for the rest of the contract period, on top of the cost of the new phone. The 16GB iPhone 3GS is £184.98 on 18-month contracts up to £35, while its bigger brother, which comes with 32GB of memory, is £274.23.

EA turns lemons into Lemonade Tycoon for iPhone

8 May 2009 (reviews.cnet.com)

Earlier this week it was Myst. Now another PC classic (hell, Apple II classic) has made its way to the iPhone. Lemonade Tycoon is Electronic Arts' adaptation of the seminal Lemonade Stand, a business and economics lesson shrouded in an addictive turn-based strategy game. Indeed, what looks like (and is) a cute little kids game about running a lemonade stand is actually a clever course in sales, marketing, and management. The goal: Build your neighborhood juice biz into a Starbucks-like lemonade empire. ("Lemonade-bucks"? Nah. Hopefully Marketing can come up with something snappier.)

Vandals take down Internet, emergency, and voice services in California

10 April 2009 (mercurynews.com)



Feeling vulnerable? Maybe you should. Apparently, taking down the Internet, ATMs, and landline and

wireless phone services

is as easy as crawling down a few strategically located manholes and hacking through some fiber optic cables. Police in California suspect exactly that after "vandals" cut a total of 10 fiber optic cables (each containing between 48 and 360 fibers) at 4 locations on Thursday morning. The AT&T and Sprint cables knocked "tens of thousands" of San Francisco, Bay Area residents off the grid including an additional 52,000 Verizon landline and

wireless

customers. San Jose spokesman, Sgt. Ronnie Lopez, says that Vandals somehow managed to thwart the safeguards securing this important element of the US infrastructure.

Apple orders 100 million 8Gb flash chips in ramp up for new device(s)?

9 April 2009 (digitimes.com)



Oh Apple, what are you up to? Just like we saw right around this time last year in preparation for Apple's new iPhone 3G and updated iPod touch, Apple is placing huge orders of NAND chips thereby threatening the supply in demand by other tier-one vendors. This time we've got DigiTimes confirming earlier reports that Apple is cornering the market on flash memory -- specifically, the Taiwanese rumor rag is reporting orders of "100 million 8Gb (8 gigabit, not gigabyte) NAND flash chips mostly with Samsung Electronics." That's twice the size of the order reported last year. The tiny memory chips are then recombined during manufacturing into the larger 16GB, 32GB, and so on capacities we expect to find in our handheld consumer electronics. Anyone still doubting new Apple handhelds in June?

RIM (employee): Storm 2 with "new approach to text entry" for end 2009, early 2010

8 April 2009 (tweakers.net)



Reputable Dutch site Tweakers has Alain Segond von Banchet, RIM channel sales manager according to LinkedIn, stating that the BlackBerry Storm followup is scheduled to launch at the end of the year or at the beginning of next. In addition, he has the phone coming to KPN, not Vodafone who had the first generation Storm locked-up under an exclusive deal. Interestingly enough, Mr. Segond von Banchet says that the Storm 2 (not the final name) will "offer among other things a new manner to input text" -- among other things meaning WiFi, presumably, as we heard before. Keep in mind that channel sales managers do not typically represent a company to the press. Nevertheless, what he's saying does jibe with previous rumors and we have no doubt that RIM is working hard to avoid the universal disdain that greeted the Storm's mushy, push-button touchscreen input.

HTC Snap coming to T-Mobile sans Inner Circle?

8 April 2009 (wmexperts.com)



So the juicy part of this rumor has to be the fact that T-Mobile could get a branded version of the lovely HTC Snap (or rather the US-specific S522, which doesn't carry the Snap name), a belief based on a leaked ROM rife with references to the carrier's name and logo. Of course, seeing how T-Mobile was HTC's partner on the Excalibur / Dash, it makes a lot of sense that they'd want to carry on the portrait QWERTY tradition there with an updated model, which is precisely where the S522 fits into the puzzle. This is where it gets weird, though: the ROM apparently has wiped all references to Inner Circle, HTC's software tweak that lets you selectively filter out emails from anyone not on your whitelist. Why they'd want to get rid of it is unclear since it wouldn't seem to affect carrier revenue in any way, so we're holding out hope that it'll reappear by the time the device ships -- if this rumor even ends up checking out, that is.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

31 march 2009 (engadgetmobile.com)



Review


It's not the company's first touchscreen device, but the 5800 XpressMusic is the first touchscreen device that Nokia has designed to appeal to the masses, and as such, there are certain expectations. By even the most forgiving of standards, Nokia is now officially late to this game -- all of the remaining top-five manufacturers have been offering mass-market touchscreen phones for some time now -- so there's plenty of ground to be made up. What's more, the 5800 marks the retail introduction of S60 5th Edition, the latest incarnation of the world's most ubiquitous smartphone platform; future iterations of this very code will lay the groundwork for the Symbian Foundation's next-gen offensive, so the stakes have never been higher. You might say the weight of the world -- or Finland, at the very least -- is on the 5800's shoulders, but is this unassuming little slate up to the task? Let's have a look.

Pinch and Spread: The Battle Over Multitouch Tech Is One

31 march 2009 (wired.com)



The Pre, Palm's ridiculously slick new mobile phone, stole the show at CES this year. Good looks helped, but mainly it was the Pre's iPhone-like touchscreen technology that wowed the industry crowd. Sure, the Pre has a built-in keyboard, but all anyone wanted to do was drag their fingers along the screen and make magic happen: pop windows open, scroll through sites, fling the contact list to the bottom of the display. The gestures were intuitive, fun, and basically copies of Apple's. Two weeks later, Apple COO Tim Cook expressed his irritation (without directly naming Palm) to analysts on a conference call: "We will not stand for having our IP ripped off, and we'll use whatever weapons we have at our disposal. I don't know that I can be clearer than that.

Dell Smartphone Deemed Boring, Says Analyst

Anytime a new product is a success, you see a whole bunch of “me too” products in the months after. If the original manufacturer is making buckets of money from one device, every other company under the sun wants to get in on it. It happened with netbooks and it happened with smartphones. The iPhone was a hit and suddenly every company was endeavoring to bring out the one that would slay the beast. None have come close (although the hype surrounding the Storm was significant) and while many are putting all their eggs in Pre-brand baskets, it turns out the market doesn’t have room for entries from just any old company trying its luck.

Apple's Delays Could Cost iPhone Developer $600K

A software company could potentially lose more than half a million dollars because of an iPhone app that Apple has ignored for six months. Eric Thomas, CEO of FreedomVoice Systems, told staff this week that the company is ceasing indefinitely any work on an iPhone voice app, called Newber, because Apple will neither accept it nor reject it. FreedomVoice has so far invested $600,000 and more than half a year in the app. We followed all guidelines set by Apple throughout the development process and have never received comment from Apple as to why the Newber application has still not even been reviewed," Thomas wrote in a letter to FreedomVoice staff, provided to Wired.com. "Steve Jobs hailed the App Store as, 'the best deal going to distribute applications to mobile platforms.' Our experience is that it is the worst deal going.

Verizon Cell Phones

Technology continues to become more prevalent in our lives with each passing year. It also continues to spread across a wider group of people both in age and financial standing. A great example is the prevalence of mobilephones. Today the leader is Verizon Cell Phones, however there seems to be one hundred beyond that. They continue to become more like extensions of the home and office and less as just Verizon Cellular Phones or even cell phones. Children now have cell phones as do retired octogenarians, as well as almost everybody in between.

Of the respondents to the surveys, 52% consider the phone,(in and of itself and regardless if it's Verizon Cellular Phones or another brand) a form of entertainment, with a third of them playing games on their mobile phones regularly. However the cell phone is not all fun, games and socializing, in actuality 80% of teens find a sense of security with their cell phone.

Apple iPhone

The Apple iPhone isn't just pretty, it's useful, too. One of its coolest features is that it can be customized with hundreds of free Web applications. These applications allow you to check in on your favorite social-networking sites, receive RSS (Really Simple Syndication) news feeds, watch videos and play games -- all on an interface that's made for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Web applications, also known as Web apps, don't require any special software downloads. Since they're Web-based, they're accessible through the iPhone's Safari Web browser. Simply type in the application's URL, and you're there. If you like a Web app, you can easily add an icon to your iPhone home page for easy, one-click access.

Wonderful Future Of Cell Phones

Cell phones have long become a symbol of status as well as a fashion statement. Some manufacturers have started to produce special designed phones for women. Other models are designed with interchangeable facades to cater for the youngsters. A lot of young people are transferring their instant-messaging habits to their cell phones.

The integration of so many different functionalities and technologies into the cell phones is more impressive and beneficial than the all-in-one office devices that integrated a scanner, a copier, a fax and a printer into a single compact space saving multifunctional machine.

How to Block a Phone Number Permanently?

'Line block' is the simplest measure to block mobile phone number permanently. You can call the customer care of your service provider, and tell them that you want to avail the line block facility. The customer care representative will ask you a few questions, such as your address or date of birth, to confirm your identity. Then the service provider will do the needful to block your cell phone number. On doing this your cell phone number will not be displayed on the receivers caller ID. Suppose you are availing the facility of line block, but you want the person on the other side to know that you are calling only for one specific call, then you can dial *82 before dialing the number you are calling. The downside of this facility, though, is that many users block calls from cell phone users availing the line block facility.

Future of the web?

what? Why don't we simply put RFID chip inside our body and start behave like real robots because those 'geo-vendors' want us to become one. Why do I need to see where all my friends are, where my mother is, where my aunt is and where all my schoolmates are? Do I have phone? Yes, and I can make a call I want to see someone. I am fed up with too much info already and all I want is abit of low-key privacy and free time.

Majority of those apps are forced trends and people don't need them at all. Why don't they start to invent someting more useful. Nowadays everybody and his dog are inventing something. My message to all those wannabe-youngsters: find a real job and start to live real life

Future of the Web: Location, Location, Location

this guys article doesn't revolve around the iPhone. If you'd cared to read the ~1000 words of text, you would have found that iPhone was only mentioned twice, and never as a defacto solution, but as a share of the geo market.

Bravo to you for not reading!

Future of the Web

Fully agree, I even believe that development of the web will in the future be driven more by mobile usage rather than PC usage.

AT&T

While I wish MMS & tethering were here already, I’m not upset. This is my first Apple product ever. I was originally told by AT & T that I didn’t need to pre-order. After I read that the pre-orders had sold out, I went back to the AT & T store. They promised me that that they would make sure I would get taken care of, and be treated as if I were a pre-order customer (I’ve been with AT & T for 4 years now). I was the 3rd person to receive a phone at that AT & T store and was out with an activated phone 20 minutes after the store opened at 7AM, including having all of my data transferred from my old phone. The store had over-loaded on staff, and only had a few people waiting when I left. I drove past my local Apple store (which was on my way home). There were over 200 people waiting outside, and only a few people in the store. Perhaps the problem was with Apple because no one I know who bought their 3GS at AT & T had no problems. About 1/2 the people I know who bought from Apple had prob

AT&T

I was and am so angry that AT&T is not supporting MMS or tethering immediately that I wrote to 3 executives at Apple to complain about their choice of a partner and told them, Steve Jobs included, exactly what I thought of AT&T. To my surprise and delight, I received a phone call from Mr. Jobs office with regard to my letter I had a great discussion with his representative. While nothing was going to be resolved, just the fact that someone from Apple called to speak with me is why I do business with Apple. Awesome customer service. Thanks, Apple.

AT&T

Text messaging is sent via the voice side of the GSM Network not data. All cell phone comapnies pay a third party service to process Text messages and MMS. Its not free for the cell phone company to have you send text. When you send a message from ATT to Sprint, the third party service handles the transfer.

AT&T

This article makes the assumption that AT&T ‘brings something to the table’, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Apple brought a winner to an otherwise failing carrier. Apple knows this (they signed the agreement with Cingular, not AT&T) which is why they are making AT&T look like the asses they are. If the iPhone were on every carrier, Apple would be rolling in cash.

Palm Pre on June 6th for $200: It's official!

How about we wait to compare it to the iPhone when it's out and being used by people. It looks like a damn nice phone, but I have no idea if it's better or worse than my iPhone without trying it. I also don't see anyone around here having a basis for their opinions on it. Both sides of the iPhone love/hate fest need to STFU and relax a bit.
