TomTom arrives on the iPhone for $100

AT&T Navigator's subscription based GPS navigation solution (see our review) was the first full GPS voice navigation system for the Apple iPhone, but there is now some serious competition in the GPS navigation space that may even start knocking out dedicated PND. The biggest news today is that TomTom for the iPhone was released in the US. TomTom (iTunes link) is a well known name in PNDs and their iPhone solution is one of the most costly at $99. Other recent stand-alone (no subscription required) GPS navigation solutions for the iPhone include Navigon at a special $69.99 launch price and CoPilot Live for $34.99. There is quite a price range across these navigation solutions and we'll have to see if the high cost of TomTom is worth the premium over CoPilot Live 8.

Apple celebrates App Store birthday on 11 July, 56,000+ apps in 1 year

As a guy who has been writing about and following the mobile phone/PDA space since 1997 I have to say the first time I used the original iPhone I was completely blown away that a phone could respond so quickly and transition so fluidly. Then when the App Store was launched I was again blown away by how fast developers embraced the iPhone and rolled out high quality applications at a significantly lower price than I have ever paid for mobile apps before. As points out, Apple will be celebrating the App Store's first anniversary (has it really only been a year?) this Saturday, 11 July. and they have started the festivities with an App Store birthday page (iTunes link) that highlights some of the most popular games and applications available.

But what attendees really wanted to know more about, gauging by the questions they were asking, was the Kindle e-book reader, the company's plans to expand digital music and video offerings and how it plans to deal with the competition in this space, notably from Apple's iTunes and Wal-Mart.

Slimming down the bloated iTunes installer

How do you supersize a simple music manager? Ask Apple. The Windows version of iTunes 8 takes up nearly 200MB of space on a Windows PC, including kernel-mode drivers, multiple system services, and at least one add-in. It takes a supersize helping of chutzpah to create an ad that criticizes Windows for its “bloat” and then deliver an upgrade with as much unnecessary junk as this one. If you’re like most people, you don’t need any of that additional junk. In this post, I’ll explain how you can figure out which parts of the package you need, and then show you how to wrestle control of iTunes back.

Home data compression you can see

iTunes has rendered my CD cases obsoleteA few weeks ago I realized that I had enough disk space - 1 TB - on my desktop to rip all my CDs as 320 Kb/s MP3s. I had also built a $50 DVD burner so I re-ripped most of my lower fidelity CDs and ripped the 60% I'd never ripped before.

AirDisk and iTunes problems

In a previous blog posting ("Migrate your iTunes library off your local hard drive") I wrote about how to free up a bunch of hard drive space by moving your iTunes library to an external USB hard drive that you then attach to the new 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Station (AEBS). Stop the presses!
