Mac-iPhone Update for August 26, 2008

Verizon is set to do battle with the iPhone's likely nonexistent 3G problems.  As reported by Daily Tech, Verizon has a list of things for its drones to offer potential customers.  But before anyone gets all hot about this, at least they don't have a commercial of Verizon's "can you hear me now" guy and an "iPhone guy", you know, the way Apple's commercials portray the Mac and PC.  Not yet.

Is what Verizon doing wrong?  Politics.  Image.  Media.  Apple fudges facts too.  So, Apple will just need to do better.  Maybe you can take comfort in knowing that Verizon is being sued for voicemail the way Apple was before.

iPhone-iPod Update:

  • Appleinsider is reporting that Blackberry Bold has similar 3G issues as the iPhone.  When the 3G connectivity problem first surfaced, providers happily guided users to point finger at Apple.  Still, it's too early and we'll have to see if Wired's report plays out.
  • iSmashPhone reports EA's Spore now available for the iPod.  
  • MacsimumNews is reporting there is greater corporate interest in iPhone 3G purchases.  I imagine this will likely increase once all the 3G nonsense are behind us.
Mac Update:
  • Still waiting for new gears.
  • CNet is reporting Apple is being sued for being anti-competitive...guess by who?
  • Macworld is reporting Mac has greatly increased share of enterprise market.  I wonder if this is really such the case or just that no one really bothered asking about it before.
