Bad News for the people who planned to pre order their new iPhone, and didn’t want to camp out in front an Apple Store. For the people who are making new pre ordered of their iPhone 3G[S] will have up to two weeks to get a phone. AT&T customers who do already have pre-orders in still have to line up at 7AM to nab a phone, but at least they’ve got a guaranteed slot if they show up, while the rest of the world will have to battle over remaining stock when Apple Stores open at 8AM and AT&T stores open to general customers at the same time. Looks like we might get a good riot or two out of this.
This is not a story about Steve Jobs or Apple (AAPL).
It’s not even a story about a Steve Jobs rumor.
It’s a story about a nasty piece of work called Palluxo Media, based in Vancouver, B.C., that just stooped to a new low.
As an online news outlet, Palluxo.com is all over the lot. Its current crop of stories includes pieces about Jewish and Bosnian genocides, Cuban spies, an Acapulco drug shootout and a David Carradine forensic photo.
But it also bills itself as Canada’s “Mac Dose of All Things Apple,” and that’s how it caught my attention last February, offering dubious investment advice (”it’s highly likely that the stock’s best days are over”) just before Apple began a 40-plus point march from $99 a share to more than $140.
“You fell for Palluxo?,” wrote “cynyc” — one of my regular readers — when I cited that quote as an attempt to spread FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) about Apple. “That site only exists to promote the agenda of Apple shorts [speculators betting that the stock will go down].”
I thought my reader was being overly cynical, but the recent history of Palluxo’s Steve Jobs coverage suggests he may be onto something. Continue reading “The Weirdest Steve Job Rumor yet”

Wow this is so funny, I guess the windows live mobile marketing department is not on the same page as the CEO or the windows live mobile web-team as they mocked-up what your mobile experience would look like on a mobile phone, but instead of using a real phone, they used an iPhone to show-off their smart design.
I know you’ve been reading all this news on how the new iPhone will be coming out in June since we’ve found a hint to a code update on the firmware 2.2.1 which was released just a few days ago. As the initial iPhone is referred to as iPhone 1,1 and the iPhone 3G is iPhone 1,2 the new firmware hints at an iPhone 2,1 which means a complete overhaul of the iPhone internals.
Here is what I think is going to happen on the new iPhone:
- better camera (with faces) possibly an auto-focus
- video recording at at least 480p or 720p (its’ possible with a 4mp lense
- better battery life
- 32GB space
- snow-leopard based OS
- faster graphics and cpu Continue reading “iPhone 2,1 Gen:3”
