First Impressions: iPhone 4
Finally got it! After waiting around all day, calling FedEx more times than I’d like to admit and nearly attacking the nice delivery man when he dropped it off, the new iPhone is here.

Great article from TechCrunch about how the Facebook for iPhone application has gone downhill fast. They point out issues such as the lack of native iPad support, no iOS4 support, a broken UI, and an unfinished implementation of video viewing. All totally valid points.

Apple to Launch MobileMe Enhancements: Push... →
Just as I was beginning to contemplate whether paying $100/yr. for MobileMe was worth it, this news comes out. For the device syncing and Find My iPhone features alone, I’ll keep it. Excited to see the new featured. Hopefully, they streamline the interface. I got access to the MobileMe Beta last month and have really liked it since.

Looks like all across the United States (and elsewhere), there are still problems with both Apple and AT&T trying to cope with the overwhelming and crippling level of demand being placed on the Apple Store and the servers that store customer information needed to determine pricing, etc. I started at 4AM EST, was unsuccessful for three hours, gave up at 7AM EST when the Apple Store went...

I was in the car before when I heard a commercial for Dunkin’ Donuts. They’re offering this deal where you can get “any size iced tea, for 99 cents”. They went on to clarify “that’s right folks.

This network, which will only be accessible in U.S....
