According to Gizmodo, Apple is working on iPhone tethering with At&t.
It will be great if they don’t charge too much for it!
“AT&T offers data plans for BlackBerry that include tethering for an additional $30 per month (a total of $60 per month for the BlackBerry+tethering plan).
It seems ludicrous that the same thing is not offered with the iPhone. I understand the desire to prevent tethering with the current data plan, but I am willing to pay more money to allow tethering! With such an advanced device, why can I not do so?
Macworld UK is reporting – “Misleading” Apple iPhone ad has been banned in the UK after viewers complained that the ad implied a full internet experience on the iPhone, but that because the device does not support Flash and Java these claims were incorrect.
Apple argued that the two standards in question were proprietary, and not integral to the web experience. The ASA did not agree and declared against the company on a number of counts, saying the ad breached CAP (Broadcast) TV Advertising Standards Code rules 5.1 (Misleading advertising), 5.2.1 (Evidence) and 5.2.2 (Implications).”
Very interesting! I wonder if this will have an impact on the Ad here in the states?
Kevin Rose is stirring up a huge “geek” whirlwind surrounding his latest video post about Apple’s new iPod nano, iTunes 8 and its new music subscription service.
On the TWIT, This Week in Tech podcast, he chatted about his video and gave more info about the upcoming special event.
This is a lot of news for one guy to unveil. Does he have the connections? In my opinion, he has a reputation to protect and can’t afford to be wrong.
I guess we will sit back, cross our fingers and wait until 9.9.08.
Tris, the very cool Tetris like game that I talked about just recently….well it’s days are numbered.
According to Appletell:
“The developer, Noah Witherspoon, is a college student who received a notice from The Tetris® Company via Apple. I’ll let Noah explain it.
That, I’m afraid, is essentially game over. Do they have a case? No. Not really. I am convinced that if it went to court, the “copyright” claim would get thrown out completely. The trademark, perhaps not — but if I changed the name, to e.g. “Trys”, that would be much harder for them to argue.
Basically, Witherspoon doesn’t have the money to let this go to court, where he is confident he would be able to win the case. He goes on to say that he understands the idea of protecting a brand, but doesn’t respect the way they are going about it, relying entirely upon the fact that he doesn’t have the money to keep the app available.
But, this isn’t completely bad news; at least there’s a little wiggle room. Tris will not be removed from the App Store until Wednesday August 27th. So get it while you still can.”
