Apple Makes no Money from its Online Music Store - Steve Jobs


CEO Steve Jobs admitted that Apple makes no revenue from the online download service, the iTunes Music Store, that he launched in April. As iTMS is the leading download service, with 80 per cent market share (or so Jobs claimed), where's your 99 cents per song going?

GPRS Honeymoon


I was excited when GPRS became available here in the US, and it's still better than nothing (although if a hotspot is available, I'll pay $7 or so a day to use it). But in its current incarnation, it's a bridge technology; CDPD was too slow to meet most users' needs except for people who are total freaks about connectivity. 2.5G GPRS is there for early adopters and to keep folks happy while we wait for the faster stuff to roll out. EDGE will be better, but CDMA2000 1xRTT is here now, and I like it. It's fast enough that I could get serious work done with it. But, I'm in a contract with AT&T, and I really do like being able to use my T68i with my Mac over Bluetooth. SmithMicro has solutions for tethering a Mac to phones from various providers, including Sprint and Verizon. So it is a little tempting to consider what life would be like at twice the speed.

Sony Ericsson P800 Review


Individually some of the P800's functionality is thin milk. The camera is terrible in low light and the music player is hamstrung by the lack of storage. It is a modern technological eqivelant of the swiss army knife, and like the famous knife it is the sum of its parts, and not the individual featues that make it cool.
