Unlocked iPhones, EeePC, Total HD, Smartphone Security 11-26-07

T-Mobile has turned the tables in Germany by unlocking iPhones so the users can choose which service to use. This was to counter a restraining order by rival Vodaphone. But was that the best idea and more importantly, will that happen anywhere else? Let’s answer the second part first. Don’t expect this to happen anywhere else. And also don’t expect to get a German iPhone shipped to you – unless you are willing to head to Germany and pay $1500 for it.

Roundup #3 – Then and Now – 11-24-07

I remember the Holidays back in the 70’s and 80’s. It was a different time then. Phones were wired at the house, we all watched TV on a 20” CRT monitor, and video games were on an Atari, NES or SEGA system. Cars ran on Regular (til  the early 80’s) or Unleaded and sometimes Diesel. You spent about 20 minutes outside warming up and scraping off the car. Albums were on CD. And all your Spam came in letter format, through Magazines or TV commercial. Does anyone remember the onslaught of Ronco products, Patsy Cline and Zamfir album commercials? Send only 9.99 plus S&H to the address on your screen? They were only a minute long. Not 30. Remember flipping through 3-4 channels and watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” on all of them Christmas eve?

Weekly Focus #1- 11-11-07

Veterans Day. The day where we remember the men and women who have fought for us and subsequently died for our freedom. From the Civil War to today, Americans have given their life for their country. We remember that, and we honor that. Technology and War are two things that go hand in hand. The newest advances will give the advantage swiftly and sometimes without prejudice. Whether it was the first Bomber Planes in WW1, the first use of mobile communications or the nuclear assault on Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945. Each advantage turns War into a new game. Whoever is on top of their technology game can turn a battle to their advantage. Remember the movie “Small Soldiers” (1998)? Action figures with a smart chip embedded in their systems start battling each other once activated. Today we have Robots that do things like disarm bombs and unmanned...
