Puzzler, the iPhone Game (link)

July 25, 2007

So, Apple releases this little goody to help us better understand the SDK (ahem) of the web. OK.

Hope you guys get a kick out of Puzzler the game from Apple’s Developer Connection. Keep in mind, because iPhone sees things as “the real web” this will work in your browser too. 😉

 (And, Apple, if you want me to take it down… let’s make this easy… just email me at geraldb28@mac.com with a take down or call 918-813-9745. It wasn’t clear to me this was prohibited, so I plowed ahead.) 

iPhoney Goes 1.1. iPhone RSS News.

June 28, 2007

Marketcircle’s updated their iPhone emulator (iPhoney) to version 1.1.

MacRumors reports Apple has an AJAX/Web 2.0 RSS reader in the works specifically for iPhone. Safari gets a big thumbs down. However, iPhoney (using the iPhone agent string) doesn’t get turned away… Nothing is currently served up. But, no “go away” message either. Wish there was some way to ‘view source’.

AJ, how about it?

NICE! iPhone Emulator

June 21, 2007

MarketCircle’s used the latest WebKit distro to create an iPhone emulator. So far as I know, there’s nothing else out there like it.

FYI – Agent string doesn’t register on your server log files like an iPhone. Suppose you could mod that though…Way to go AJ & Team! ~ hat tip to Jill (my hero!) 

[EDIT – It’s just been updated to 1.1 and even kinda works with Apple’s dedicated iPhone app.]

Cisco’s iPhony

January 11, 2007

I don’t care if Cisco thunk it up themselves or if they acquired it through M&A… their’s is still the iPhony.

I spent a little time over lunch poring over their lawsuit and they actually have the stupidity to say Apple has no VoIP experience… WHAT!? iChatAV is what… Some kind of computer to computer walkie talkie?

I’m with Apple. Cisco’s lawsuit is “silly”. (Now, Apple, please kindly make that $100M check out payable Cisco Systems and let’s be on our way)
