Yesterday I posted a story by Mike Elgan at Computerworld who listed six reasons why it was a mistake to make the iPhone keynote at Macworld. Although pre-announcing a new product is a radical departure for Apple, there is some logic to it in this case. Here are 10 reasons why announcing the iPhone six months early was a stroke of genius by Steve Jobs...
The Apple Core
Apple technology keeps gaining respect in the executive suite, with businesses and in the data center. Jason O'Grady and David Morgenstern deliver critical news and penetrating analysis that managers need to succeed.
Jason D. O'Grady
Jason O'Grady is a journalist and author specializing in mobile technology. He has published six books on Apple and mobile gadgets and his PowerPage blog has been publishing for over 18 years.
David Morgenstern has covered the Mac market and other technology segments for 20 years.

Techcrunch has the juice on a killer new service for mobile phones, TellMe.

Current MacBook Pros and most other high-end notebook computers use cold cathode fluorescent backlights (CCFLs) to illuminate their displays and have for years, but all that's about to change.
In my first installment of iPhone missing feature I outlined my initial concerns about some features that I thought the iPhone was missing. Little did I realize that I missed a bunch!
I was going to save this for my second installment of iPhones missing features, Crave beat me to it (damn Cravers!) Another huge iPhone oversight, although it's probably due to technical reasons, is that it doesn't have a High Definition (16:9) display.
Not that I want to give the criminal element any ideas or anything, but Crave, CNet's gadget blog, has posted a story today calling the iPhone one of Apple's most "muggable" devices.
Apple yesterday announced their Q1 2007 financial results in a conference call with analysts and made some history at the same time.
