Google Ready Day One, Orange Revolution, and New MacBooks in 3rd Quarter

 

Google will be ready day one: Google is currently working on native iPhone 2.0 applications that will be ready when Apple’s App Store and iPhone 2.0 firmware launch. According to Goggle's, vice president of engineering, Vic Gundotra, the company will create key native iPhone applications similar to Google Maps.

 

The iPhone Revolution marches forward: France's exclusive iPhone provider, Orange, has announced a new distribution deal with Apple. Orange will soon sell iPhones in Austria, Belgium, The Dominican Republic, Egypt, Jordan, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland, and African markets. And not a moment to soon, according to a report by AdMob, gray-market iPhone use is widespread in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, the Netherlands and Hong Kong, all markets with no official iPhone presence. China and Russia have the largest number of gray- market iPhones according to AdMod.

 

But, I just bought a the new MacBook: The Chinese-language Commercial Times reports that Apple's new line of 13-inch MacBooks will arrive sometime during the third quarter of 2008 based on LCD panel orders by Taiwan's AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics. It’s rumored that the new MacBooks are going green with eco-friendly aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel enclosures.

 

Here’s a pencil or two: Apple won two Black Pencil product design awards for the iMac and the iPhone at the D&AD Awards Ceremony in London. The D&AD is global educational charity and recognizes the World’s best-designed and most creative, products.

 

What! Apple worried: Safari users could download malicious software because the browser doesn’t ask for permission when downloading files. Security researcher Nitesh Dhanjani, who blogged about the security threat says, “Apple does not feel this is an issue they want to tackle at this time." He did discover another high-risk security vulnerability that Apple plans to deal with.

 

John Mayer -- Apple traitor?: Singer John Mayer showed off his new BlackBerry Bold on his blog saying, “I like cool stuff, early. Is that so wrong?” Clearly, Apple isn’t moving fast enough for Mayer.
