The case of the missing iPhone 3GS's

When I finally filled my iPod Touch 16GB and realized that I really do like a lot of the iPhone apps, it was time to bid my Nokia N96 (which has been a problem child) goodbye and go straight for the top: an iPhone 32GB.I'd not heard any recent reports of shortages although WSJ blogs had reported shortages back in July.

Zune HD review roundup: excellent hardware and UI, apps lacking

Some sites received Zune HD review units from Microsoft (I had to buy mine), but they were not able to post their reviews since Microsoft had to flip the Zune 4.0 server switch on the 15th. We are now seeing lots of detailed reviews coming in for the Zune HD and overall the impressions are that it is a fantastic media player that is the Zune we have all been wanting from the start. It is obvious it cannot compete with the iPod touch in terms of apps, but this is just the start and that may change in the future. The Zune Pass is the really defining feature that stands out from the iPods though and if you have a limited personal music collection the Zune HD can be a killer media player.

Should wireless carriers be dropping mobile app stores for their own brand?

While I think the upcoming HandMarket Apps store on Windows Mobile device is looking great, I agree with Stacey over at GigaOM that carrier-branded and online distributor stores may present more confusion in the mobile application market and we could end up back where we started with several software distributors, except now on your phone rather than on the desktop. I think Apple is successful with the App Store because it is the only way to get apps on your iPhone/iPod touch and the process is made extremely easy for the consumer. Others are trying to model this success, but I don't think a fractured market is the way to do it.

iPhone Disney at Work application gives insight into the Magic Kingdom

Apple is approaching its first birthday of the App Store tomorrow and with something close to 60,000 available apps there is something for everyone. I received a press release today for an application that I thought would be useful to those in the customer service industry and may also be interesting for others in the business world. Disney at Work: Magic Kingdom was written by J. Jeff Kober (check out his Disney at Work blog) to provide businesses with information and tools on how to improve their organization internally and externally. The application is available on iTunes for $4.99 and works with the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Palm, not Apple, deserves black eye for iTunes sync confusion

Maybe it's me, but I don't get why everyone seems to be bent out of shape over Apple's decision to block the Palm Pre from synchronizing with iTunes.Here's what's important to remember: iTunes is free software provided by Apple to manage the music - as well as movies, TV shows, apps and so on - that plays on an iPod and iPhone.

Will Apple allow one or two 3rd party apps to run in the background?

As we approach the June WWDC event and the expectation that Apple will roll out iPhone OS 3.0 along with some possible new hardware, the rumors of what else may be in the OS update heat up. The latest speculation is that Apple will allow one or two 3rd party apps to run in the background. Currently, Apple lets you run the iPod music functions in the background, but no 3rd party apps have this capability. The servers side notification support coming in iPhone 3.0 may address the needs for some apps, such as IM apps, but there are still some others that would benefit from running in the background on the iPhone.
