SHARE:

This week on the Dan & David Show we discuss Apple's phoneless iPhone, the iPod touch, and fallout of the iPhone price cut two months after launch. Just after we recorded the show Steve Jobs addressed the concerns of customers who paid $599 instead of the now $399 price:

Therefore, we have decided to offer every iPhone customer who purchased an iPhone from either Apple or AT&T, and who is not receiving a rebate or any other consideration, a $100 store credit towards the purchase of any product at an Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. Details are still being worked out and will be posted on Apple's website next week. Stay tuned.

Good move Steve. We also talk about the quad-core chips coming from Intel and AMD, Palm canceling its Foleo product and Zoho's Business suite and the Office 2.0 Conference. In addition, David offers his viewpoint on the OOXML vs. ODF debate.

  • ISO

    For David, since he's mentioned this a few times on the podcast...

    For why the "International Organization for Standardization" is known as ISO (rather than IOS), see:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO#Name_and_abbreviation

    "The organization's logos in its two official languages, English and French, include the letters ISO, and it is usually referred to by these letters. ISO is not, however, an acronym or initialism for the organization's full name in either official language. Rather, the organization adopted ISO based on the Greek word ????????? (isos), which means equal. Recognizing that the organization???s initials would be different in different languages, the organization's founders chose ISO as the universal short form of its name. This, in itself, reflects the aim of the organization: to equalize and standardize across cultures."

    I can just imagine the French and British reps being unable to agree. The result is a typical compromise: no one gets what they personally want, but all players can live with the compromise.
