…AT&T can be hacked for free WiFi?

iPhone AT&T Hack

AT&T is (finally) offering free WiFi to its iPhone and Blackberry customers, and with a few easy/clever modifications to your laptop’s browser, you can enjoy that free web access on the big screen as well.

You’ll still need an AT&T account to use the hack, since you have to log in with that account to activate the service, but that’s a small price to pay for the extra access.

…Apple is the leader of next gen computing?

iPhone SDK

The minds over at ReadWriteWeb seem to think that with the announcement of Exchange support and the iPhone SDK, Apple has set themselves up to become the dominating force in next gen computing, and I must say that I agree.

Here’s why:

  • The demand for small yet functional computers has already been demonstrated with the Asus Eee PC. If you can fit an entire computer into your pocket, you open up a world of possibilities.
  • The demand for pocket sized gaming devices has already been demonstrated with the DS (as well as all other pocket sized Nintendo consoles) and the PSP. Throw in Wii-esque motion controls and you’ve got yourself a winner.
  • Windows Mobile is terrible.
  • Exchange support means the iPhone can do what the BlackBerry does, only it looks good doing it, and can play games, movies, music, and more while you’re waiting.
  • It takes an iPod and a phone (two things many people carry around with them anyways) and combines them into one device. Why carry two when just one will suffice?
  • It’s an Apple product, so the UI is both beautiful and functional.
  • Combine a full SDK with a huge desire to develop for the latest and greatest mobile platform, and you’ll have throngs of developers jumping on board to develop amazing apps out of the gate. Microsoft Office anyone?

The list goes on and on.

Basically, as long as Apple can ride its current wave of iPhone success to conclusion, it will set the bar far beyond what anyone else is even striving towards at this point. The iPhone has created a whole new game, and currently, Apple is the only player.

Does this mean Apple will surely dominate next gen computing?

Time will tell, but all signs currently point to yes.

…Your BlackBerry is jealous of Apple?

bPhone

If you love the look of the iPhone, but can’t give up the functionality of your CrackBerry, then give it a bit of iStyle with the bPhone theme.

The bPhone features icons that have been pulled directly from the Apple theme, custom icons to match, a dark glass top banner, a Macified signal and battery indicator, an OS X beachball ‘busy’ indicator, and a liberal use of gray and blue.

It might not add multi-touch, but at least you can pretend…
