iPhone 3G: Meets Expectations

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008
iPhone 3G
click for bigger

So we got the iPhone.
Here at last.

Why was I disappointed?
Mostly, no video.

Certainly at least the same video streaming capability we’ve seen in the Nokia N95
(Qik.com, anyone?),
but hopefully also streaming video *in* as well.
Was iChat A/V too much to ask?

What remains to be seen is how much Rogers is going to charge.
Luisa told me this morning she heard on the radio that it would be $80!
AT&T in the ‘States is charging $30.

WWDC 2008

Monday, June 9th, 2008
wwdc2008

It’s WWDC-keynote-day!
I’ll be adding to this post over the day.

Rumour: Mac Fusion

TUAW
has some murky screenshots of an ad for a new Mac, the “Mac Fusion”, appreantly targetted at developers.

mac fusion

Sort of a super-Mac-Mini?

“Live” Web Sites

Here’s a list of web sites that will be tracking the WWDC keynote.

Let me know of any others.

Woah, live video feed from a phone!
Pretty impressive.
There is also a full-screen version of Viru.
Very cool!

So we have:

8 GB $200
16 GB $400

There will be a white model available, apparently.


Okay, so overall, this was a really long and boring keynote.
Nothing we didn’t already know for the first 70-80 minutes.

Finally the 3G iPhone is rolled out, and all it seems to be missing is video.

Cost of storage vs DVD: BD=16x, CD=6½x, HD & DVD-DL=5x

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Just a quick followup note from a thread I did on Twitter yesterday on the prices of a Gigabyte of storage on various media.

DVD’s are still the king at just over 3¢ per gig:

Kind ¢/Gig xDVD
Blu-ray DL 25.0¢ 7.8x
CD 20.5¢ 6½x
DVD DL 11.0¢ 3½x
Blu-ray 10.4¢ 3¼x
Hard disk 8.9¢ 2.8x
DVD±R 3.2¢ 1x

I find the dual-layer DVD vs hard drive equivalence fascinating, especially after talking with Iain yesterday about
the eSATA ports on my Mac Pro’s motherboard.


Sources for prices are Canada Computers
and Fortune Computers.

Update: per my comment below, DVD-DL updated from 17¢/GB (5x) to 11¢/GB (3½x).

Update: per another comment, Blu-ray updated from 51¢/GB (16x) to 20¢/GB (6½x).

Update: another comment: Blu-ray updated from 20¢/GB (16x) to 12¢/GB (3¾x).

Update 2009-09-09: another comment: Blu-ray updated from 12¢/GB (16x) to 10.¢/GB (3¼x), added Blu-ray DL. Also updated hard disk from 17¢/GB to 8.9¢/GB as per current prices of 1.5 TB drives.

Expandable desktop Mac now available — but not from Apple

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Psystar OpenMac

Apple has abandoned the consumer desktop.

Well, that may be a bit harsh, after all there is the iMac, right?
Um, no.

One of the biggest segments of desktop machines is the gaming box.
Gamers want a machine they can open up and upgrade.
Better video cards, more memory, that sort of thing.
Exactly what the iMac does **not** provide.

Enter
Psystar’s
Open Computer
,
a Mac hardware clone, with a base price of $400.
This includes:

  • 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 Processor
  • 2GB of DDR2 667 memory
  • Integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics
  • 20x DVD+/-R SATA drive that is Lightscribe-capable
  • 4 rear USB Ports

You’d think something like this would be case-and-desist’ed almost immediately,
but appreantly there are some
interesting legal wrinkles.

iPod touch Questions

iPod touch
Apple’s new iPod Touch

I have a few questions for the new iPod touch.

  1. Does it work with the Nike sport thingee?
  2. Can I run the iPhone’s Google Maps app on it?
  3. Why doesn’t it have 32 GB?
  4. Why don’t I have one?


iPhone apps are coming out fast

iphone apps
See Colloquuy? Click for larger pic.

The iPhone seems to be completely opened now.

You can install custom native apps, and unlock the phone to use with a non-AT&T company.

These new devices aren’t really iPhones or iPods.
They should be called iPads.
They are a distinctive break from previous devices.

You can download the iPhone version of Colloquy (an IRC client)
from Google Code.
