Old Skool meets new School

This is seriously one of the coolest and silliest things I have ever seen on an iPhone.

“Welcome to the MacOS iPhone Project! We are Dedicated to putting MacOS on the iPhone”

iphone 7.1

Remember this, ‘Safe to Turn off Your Macintosh – ah the simple days.

Boy I hope these guys succeed, this is pure genius for the sake of the insanity of it, I don’t know why but it makes me so happy to see so much endenvor into something this silly.

Upside, my hold HyperCard stacks will live – like Frankenstein’s Monster.

All power to these guys, I just love this.

iPhone App organiser?

http://www.veronicabelmont.com/2009/02/the-iphone-app-organizer-i-would-lov-to-see/

Great post about how important/cool it would be to have an app organiser for the iPhone. Anyone like me with way too many apps on their phone know how slow it can be organising apps by different criteria (news, sport, games etc), and how frustrating it is to add a new app then to have BBC News 4 pages away from the rest of the news apps.

Bored one day, I was even as frivolous as organising by colour and taking screen shots. Icons too big for any ideas of ASCI styled art, my Las Vegas Elvis was barely recognisable even to me. Still there has to be a project out there for me one day.

iPhone The Missing Manual

Why Are iPhone Users Willing to Pay for Content?

“It may be no surprise that the best-selling computer book so far this year is “iPhone: The Missing Manual,” by my colleague David Pogue (O’Reilly, 2007).

But here is something that did surprise me: The most popular edition of this book isn’t on paper or the PDF file that O’Reilly Media also sells. It is the downloadable application for the iPhone, according to Tim O’Reilly, the chief executive of O’Reilly Media.”

Excellent article on NY Times on the sensitivity of price point marketing on the AppStore.

“The book, which sells for $24.99, was initially offered as an iPhone app for $4.99. When the publisher raised the price to $9.99, sales fell 75 percent. O’Reilly quickly dropped the price back down to the lower level.”

I have this book and I can vouch for it, excellent.

Happy Birthday Steve

54 Today.

And to celebrate Steve’s birthday, Apple have (not related) announced massive cash reserves for the company.

Two days before Apple’s (AAPL) annual meeting — the first in more than a decade that Steve Jobs won’t attend — Financial Alchemist’s Turley Muller offers beleaguered shareholders a statistic that should provide some comfort:

Apple’s cash holdings have grown at an annual rate of 50% (year-to-year) or more every quarter for the past two years.

Next iPhone killer? again…

http://apple20.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2009/02/21/a-taxonomy-of-iphone-competitors/

The always fantastic Apple2.0 blog by Philip Elmer-DeWitt has a great piece on a Taxonomy of iPhone competitors.

Well worth the look, but in the end, if you want one fine, but it’s still not an iPhone (and that’s fine if you don’t get it).
