I think that mobile payment is going to become increasingly common. I recently heard from Obopay, a mobile-to-mobile money transfer service, which has recently launched an iPhone-optimized website. It allows iPhone users to easily send money to any cell phone that can receive an SMS.

I'm writing an article for our printed publication, detailing my experience developing an app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
While Apple prides themselves in simplicity, developing an app was rather tricky. However, the results have been rewarding.

It's official. Starting Sunday, you can get an iPhone at Wal-Mart. As is their trademark, the prices will be lower than elsewhere, but only by $2. I guess you can buy a couple of apps with the money you save!

This is a cool idea: print photos from your iPhone or iPod Touch directly to a printer without having to first transfer the photos to a computer. HP has developed this app and is making it available for free in the iTunes store. Search for HP iPrint Photo.

Well it's been rumored for weeks now and today Walmart officially announced that they will begin selling the Apple iPhone in 2,500 of its stores this Sunday.
The official announcment puts to rest the rumor of Walmart carrying a special 4GB iPhone for $99. Both of the current iPhone models will be available at Walmart stores for $2 less than current pricing elsewhere.
The father of the iPhone, Apple Inc., had no comments on its website.

Now that the dust has settled and it's clear that thousands of Apple fans will be deprived of attending a Steve Jobs keynote at Macworld. I thought I'd reflect on the first time I attended one of his talks.
It was in the mid-1980's, after Jobs had been unceremoniously ousted from the very company he started, and around the time he launched his next venture, appropriately named NeXT. He came to my university, Carnegie Mellon, to research some technology (MachOS) the school had developed which would become the core of his NeXT computer.
