The Weekly Moan: Randall’s wrong words

There are not many things that irritate me as much as someone making assumptions about me. If I were an AT&T customer (I’m not; I’m in the U.K.), I’d be extremely agitated at AT&T chief Randall Stephenson right now. When recently confronted with the notion that, should the iPhone arrive on Verizon, nearly half the carrier’s users would defect, he…

New jailbreak add-on lets you set a homepage in mobile Safari

Why not? With the BarTab app, it’s crazy cheap. BarTab makes it easy to send your Facebook friends (or yourself) a real, honest-to-goodness cocktail, not just…

Jailbreak Tues — Will Apple spy on jailbreakers?

An interesting development occurred last week: It was reported that Apple’s new patent application would help iPhone owners recover or possibly wipe their lost or stolen devices. The company even went a step further, proposing that a picture could be snapped of the stranger using the handset, and the phone’s GPS coordinates could sent to the rightful owner…
