New iPhone tethering rumor: $10/month

I hate to spread rumors .... but this one's good. Maybe too good to be true. I like the idea of tethering — connecting your laptop to the Internet via your phone's data capability when there's no Wi-Fi or other connection available. It's been rumored for some time now that AT&T and Apple are planning to make this available for an additional monthly charge of $30. Ouch.



Make your own ringtones with the free iRinger

The good news is that iRinger is free and that it lets you create iPhone ringtones from almost any source. You can even extract audio ringtones from videos. The bad news: the app is only available for the Windows OS. (There's a certain amount of irony there.) Once you've created your ringtones, then the application exports them to iTunes. You can Adjust ringtone length, volume, fade in, fade out, and loop gap, as well as add audio effects.



Live Blogging from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas

Greetings Gadget Lovers...

Yes, MacWorld is getting underway, and there will certainly be news of note for iPhone and iPod Touch users coming out of San Francisco.

But I'm here in Las Vegas, preparing for the other big trade show of the week.  CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, will have plenty of news for iPhone and iPod Touch users and I'll be covering it for iPhone Life Magazine, both for our printed version and right here in this blog.  So bookmark this page and keep checking back throughout the week!

 



Top iPhone apps you should have for MacWorld

First off, Happy New Year!  We are approaching the final count down to MacWorld and aside from a few bookmarks (and macworld - thanks @danielbru for reminding me), there are a few apps you may want to make sure you have installed. I’m going to break the list in two; jailbreak and non jailbreak apps.  I’m also not going to list games. I figure, you would already have that in hand.

iPhone App Development - a primer

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.



More ways to get an iPhone: $197 at Wal-Mart or $99 for a refurb at AT&T!

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!



Walmart Ready To Give Birth To The iPhone

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.



Macworld without Steve Jobs... a reflection on the first Steve Jobs speech I attended circa 1985

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.
