From the New York Times: On Wednesday, Apple executives insisted that the price cut had been planned long ago and that the strategy had been conceived in part to keep the iPhoneâ€™s pricing […]

Today, just two months after its introduction, Apple announced that they were dropping the price of the 8GB iPhone from $600 to $400. This news has set off a firestorm of anger among early adopters, many of whom are Apple’s biggest fans and supporters. I have to admit, I felt the sting myself. I still […]
I know I’m not the only one who likes to take the iPhone to bed (I’ve seen iJustine do it a time or two). It’s perfect for checking RSS feeds, Digg, and email before dozing off. The trouble is that I like to lay on my side while reading, and there’s just no comfortable way […]
Even though I have an iPhone, and I have a blog, I’m really not inclined to write an in-depth review. I sat down yesterday and tried to figure out how I would structure one when it occurred to me that I was having too much fun with my iPhone to really analyze it properly. And […]

Omnipresent blogroller Alex King is reporting that his iPhone continues to function as an iPod and wireless device despite having cancelled his AT&T phone plan. This is good news for people who can’t or don’t want to use AT&T as their cell phone carrier. You may want to wait a day or two before rushing […]
Well, of course I bought one. I went to the Bay Street Apple Store in Emeryville (who are we kidding… it’s Oakland) Friday night. Even though there’s an AT&T Store practically across the street, and the line was much shorter, I somehow suspected the atmosphere wouldn’t be quite as festive there. Turns out I made […]
I woke up this morning to several email messages asking whether the Nike+iPod Sport Kit works with Apple’s newly announced iPhone. I spent the better part of yesterday wandering around Macworld taking pictures and asking questions, and I’m afraid I don’t have good news to report.
