There are really two different kinds of hacking going on here. The first kind is where people use applications of varying degrees of difficulty (it's actually getting pretty easy now...) to 'jailbreak' the iPhone, which allows foreign software to be installed on it. This is where peopl...
The iPhone DevCamp begins Friday night. I won't be able to attend, though we'll be sending Jason Cline to the event to represent SitePen. We've been blogging quite a bit about the iPhone on the SitePen blog, and running a lot of tests to find out all of the various things that don't wo...
The iPhone's high resolution touch screen, dynamic orientation sensors, and multi-touch features present significant challenges to mobile web sites. SoonR has adapted its full mobile AJAX interface to include the ability to scale fonts and pictures for easy access via finger tips. As u...
So the rumors were right. Apple has delayed the launch of Leopard, its next-generation Mac OS X, a competitor of Microsoft Windows, until October, four months past its June 11 due date. In a statement issued late Thursday after the market closed Apple blamed it on the iPhone.
Funambol, the mobile open source software company, will begin inviting consumers to join the new myFUNAMBOL portal to access free mobile e-mail, contacts, and calendars on everyday cell phones. myFUNAMBOL also provides the first over-the-air mobile contacts application for the new iPho...
I think we'd all be able to stomach the lack of SDK if Apple gave us the impression that they were working on it. Instead of throwing the AJAX pacifier at us and saying 'Sweet.', they could have simply said that they were working on a real SDK and that AJAX would be a good temporary fi...
And finally Steve gets around to the iPhone. Basically he says that through Web 2.0 and AJAX, you can create applications for the iPhone because the iPhone is running the full, uncut, unaltered version of the same Safari engine that is now running on Mac OS X Leopard, Windows XP, and W...

The iPhone story that interested me the most though, was Bubba Murarka's tale of his service experience with Apple. Here's someone who clearly likes the product, but the whole experience is let down by the support model. I had a similar experience when I returned my malfunctioning Macb...
Asked at the end of his keynote address on Day Three of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 West at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California yesterday what he thought of the fact that Java doesn't run on the Apple iPhone, Robert Brewin - Sun's CTO and VP of Software - replied that ...
No IM. Ok, this is a big sore spot. This one sucks. You can't use Google Talk because the widget requires Flash (I tried...trust me, it doesn't work). There's no native AIM, Yahoo!, or MSN support. There are a couple of web pages that you can go to that simulate the AIM experience, but...
This is the first article in a series that I plan on writing about iPhone application development. The first thing you should know is that these articles will not cover anything related to taking existing content sites and making them more 'iPhone-friendly'. While I think that is a val...
The introduction of the iPhone was marked by huge publicity and the scrambling of all sorts of web services to roll out support for the unique features of the iPhone. The breakthrough browser in the iPhone provides the best mobile browsing experience to date. Not only does it support t...
'Phones should be open to anything,' claims a flyer being distributed by Apple in the wake of Sun's recent claim about Apple: 'Fundamentally, they don't like open systems.' Is the Nokia vs Apple war heating up?

Being a Java and Mac guy I looked for Java on iPhone. Java is no where to be found. For years I've listened to Jonathan Schwartz, CEO at Sun Microsystems, talk about monetizing its Java investment because of the wide-spread availability of the Java runtime - today on 700 Million mobile...
The other day I was chatting with a friend and he was taking notes about some things using his iPhone. I commented on how unbelievably fast it seemed he was able to type using the keyboard. Up until recently, I've been 'OK' at using the keyboard but I never really considered the iPhone...
The on-again, off-again Google Phone or 'gPhone' rumors are likely to come to halt for the forseeable future. That's because Google's Head of Research since 2006, Dr Peter Norvig, has told journalists in the UK that he doesn't think Google has any research ambition toward hardware, say...
'They have periodic updates on their data files, and they translate into megabucks,' Levy said. 'This is akin to your bank having automatic access to your ATM machine and is siphoning money out during all times of the day and night without your knowledge.' Actually, no. Its nothing eve...
So, for those of you who were on the fence about building iPhone applications using Web 2.0 technologies, think about this: Your potential list of application users is about to grow beyond users of the iPhone, and will include a crapload of people buying new iPods. If you think about t...

iPhone, whatever its sales, was disruptive from the moment Steve Jobs first showed it off in January. It immediately started redefining the smartphone business and focused the attention of smartphone makers on the importance of software, according to serial entrepreneur Pauline Alker, ...
I usually skip BarCamp and other hackathon coding events because they consume a lot of time and I don't usually get as much accomplished as I do at my desk. That said, when a major new platform like the iPhone gets released, an event such as the iPhone Dev Camp seems like a great idea ...
If you take a look at the success of the Nintendo Wii, you'll see an innovative device with an incredibly compelling user interaction design (the Wiimote, nunchuck, steering wheels, fitness pads, etc). The device itself has what the industry might actually refer to as 'last gen' hardwa...
We're working on an iPhone-optimized version of Ta-da List. As I was working on some UI ideas, Ryan and I were talking about some of really cool things about designing for the iPhone. I remarked that I loved the constraints. For example, we know the exact screen size/resolution, we kno...

It's going to cost at least $1,976 to own and operate one of Apple's iPhones over two years, the only term available - and that's before any add-ons. On the high end, it's going to cost at least $3,036 for a 4.8-ounce do-not-drop-this-in-the-john widget whose battery-life, Internet spe...
In a speech AT&T COO Randall Stephenson said Tuesday that the company's Cingular Wireless unit had gotten about a million inquiries about Apple's still unavailable $500-$600 iPhone since Steve Jobs showed off the device in January. Cingular has dibs on selling the multimedia/Internet-e...
