    When will we get our phones?

    I was curious, will Apple ship the pre-order phones on the 24th, meaning we'll get them 5 to 7 days later? Or will they ship them sooner allowing them to arrive around the 24th? I can't wait to get my hands on my new phone. I totally skipped the 3GS and stuck with the 3G until now. The new...

    So am I going to lose all of my paid apps?

    I'm probably going to give in to the 3G and pick one up here one of these days when I can walk into my Apple store and walk out with the one I want (16GB Black). I was thinking last night as I was buying stuff in the App Store... am I going to lose all of the purchases I made when I get the new...

    This is cool...

    So I get my first notice that there are apps which need upgrading today by firmware 2.0. Loopt and Facebook are the apps that have updates waiting for them. I install them, then go to sync and guess what? The sync hangs indefinitely and never completes. Nice.

    AT&T activation problems - people being turned away

    Looks like people are experiencing all sorts of problems... how frustrating. The funny thing is, a guy posted this morning that due to activation problems the AT&T store sent him home with his iPhone in the box (unopened). He was then able to activate the phone through iTunes just like we did...

    Jott - have you gotten it to work?

    So I installed Jott and went through the setup screen then it goes to this screen. I got my activation code via SMS but now there's nothing I can do to input the activation code. From this screen the only thing I can find to do is to hit the home button. No matter what, I can't get to a...

    v2.0 Exchange support problems... bugs

    So, when I attempt to setup my exchange service, everything goes smoothly until it prompts you to enter your password. Once you enter your password, it tells you that you will start receiving data once you set a new "passcode". Neither I nor my IT department knows what a passcode is (note, not...

    Apple SDK prevents turn-by-turn directions with GPS

    http://www.electronista.com/articles/08/06/11/iPhone.sdk..gps.nav/ It would appear that Apple is contractually prohibiting developers like TomTom from developing turn-by-turn GPS software for the iPhone 3G. This is a new change to the SDK agreement and may be why originally TomTom announced...

    iPhone 3G to use cheaper (lower quality) iPod LCD

    It would appear that in a cost cutting move Apple has decided to use the cheaper and lower quality iPod Touch LCD in their new 3G phones. Here's a comparison between the original iPhone screen and the iPod Touch...

    New Featurs of iPhone 2.0

    I thought I would create a thread dedicated to all the cool new features of iPhone 2.0 so we can avoid having 100 threads dedicated to different features. One of the cool new features we've talked about a lot is the ability to save pictures. Check out this screen shot... we can save pics...

    iPhone 2.0 games

    It's looking like developers are creating some amazing games for the iPhone. A company called Digital Legends Entertainment has a new role playing game (3D) that has been described as having "God of War like graphics somewhere between the DS and PSP". That's pretty impressive for a phone!

    It's funny, the buzz around the office

    Today the office is totally a buzz about the pending announcement of the new iPhone. Some people think it will go on sale today, others (like me) think it will go on sale sometime next week (after the 15th). I have to admit, the excitement is contagious. I really would love nothing more than...

    Alright, I am SO SICK of Apple...

    I am so sick of Apple doing cool things and making me spend more money. Who else is spending way too much time and money in the new iTunes store on their iPhone? I can't stop surfing the store now... I think I've purchased at least 20 new songs since the patch. I just thank the Apple Gods...

    Is the new iPod (Touch) in stores yet?

    On the website it says "ships Sept 28th". I haven't ventured over to my local Apple store yet to check, so I figured I would ask if anyone knows. I would like to get one before the 15th as a present.

    If you're in the Mofia the iPhone isn't for you.

    http://www.break.com/index/are-you-friggin-kiddin-me.html The only way to avoid this surveillance is to "remove the battery"... well, we don't have that option. If you're in the Mob can you get a refund?

    I'm so stoked!

    I got my first G4 Powerbook today. We had a bunch of old (2 years old) Powerbooks (1.67ghz / 1gb RAM, 17" monitor) from people that quit and our company phased them out, so I got one for a song! I already have a new Intel Macbook I use daily, but I'm so drawn to this older Mac, it's just so...
