That is really odd. I get perfect coverage there and always thought it was because it was so high profile for AT&T. I get good connections there when there is a game or concert or when it's empty. I'm often on my boat in the marina around the park, and it's good there too. Palo Alto has great coverage...except very ironically, there's a dead zone right by Steve Jobs' house. Overall, I really like AT&T.
The good news: even more features are going to be included in iPhone OS 3.0 than what was originally shown in the demo. The bad news: if they have yet to reveal these features in the beta, and they're still adding features, then they're pretty far off from release. And as to the new hardware, I have a feeling I'm going to be spending the night on the street again waiting in line for the next iPhone.
This is good news, but I think some people are confused as to what this means. There are multiple variables that affect page loads (in order of problem severity): 1) Connection to the tower 2) Connection from the tower to the backbone 3) Rendering power on the iPhone The problem with the connection to the tower, most often is a problem with simply connecting to the tower and maintaining a reliable connection. This is by far, AT&T's biggest problem. Not mentioned...
This is tough for Apple because it sounds like they got caught in a situation where way back when (actually not to long ago in terms of years), they couldn't foresee that one tech that they patented would be used in the way the W3C now wants to use it. I'm wondering if by licensing it, they can restrict its use only to ways that it won't compete with Apple (outside of browser use). Software patents are pretty much evil. The problem with them is that new technology...
The saturation point in the USA has definitely been coming. To be clear, this is the point at which growth will slow because Apple is only selling as kids get older, or they're selling upgraded models, or replacements. What I've witnessed is that kids with iPods are getting much younger. The Nano with video is a perfect gadget-sitter for young kids, and the iPod Touch is good for pre-teens and younger teens who aren't ready for an iPhone.
I highly doubt it. The Flip HD is better quality than the iPhone 3G is capable of. The new iPhone may or may not be better quality. The 3G is capable of video, and I've used it on my jailbroken 3G with results that were useful, but not great. However, Apple clearly has no intention of enabling video for the 3G. If they did, they would've announced it when the did the 3.0 demo. Instead, these people hacked the .plist file to fool 3.0 into thinking there was a video...
Microsoft is, they're coming out with Office for the iPhone.
I have a Flip, and they're great, but it's going to be a very short lived gadget. The video on the iPhone should be good enough, to use except in cases where you want a full sized dedicated video camera. I'm really looking forward to this.
From kevinJedwards.com: According to AppleInsider, “Restrictions drove U2 to switch sides from Apple to RIM“, Apple lost the sponsorship opportunity for U2 to RIM due to Apple not being willing to appease U2. I’m not that big of a fan of U2 (and forget the “but U2 sucks” comments), the fact is, U2 is HUGE. While artistically I think they ran out of substance a long time ago and are running high on gimmicks, they do get millions of people engaged in what they’re doing...
This is retarded on many levels. First, it's not what consumers want. People may think consumers want it, but they don't, and that's why Apple doesn't do it. We'd all like to be able to easily replace the battery in the iPhone, but not when we see what it does to the size and build quality. Keep in mind for the battery to be user replaceable, there needs to be significant casing around the battery and where the battery connects to the iPhone. Doing this in a way...
