iPhone Update Fear, Another Lawsuit and iPhone Extreme

 

Fear of an iPhone Update: Allegedly, iPhone update 1.1.1 has struck fear in the hearts of the iPhone folks. Concerned users are wondering what the next update will break in terms of third party applications and functionality.

 

The lawsuits just keep on coming: A New York woman is suing Apple for $1 million in damages because of the iPhone price drop. Dongmei Li claims Apple violated price discrimination laws when it slashed the price. Expect similar lawsuits against the WalMart price-slashing happy face.

 

iPhone to the Extreme: A sharp-eyed Apple user found the words "iPhone Extreme" within the HTML source code of Apple's iPhone Feedback Page. We were so excited by the news, we slammed a Dew.

 

DRM for life: Viacom, parent company of MTV, VH1 and Paramount Pictures, has no intention of dropping DRM, according to its CEO. Earlier this year, the company filed suit against Google's YouTube for copyright infringement. So you know they mean business.

 

Hello Steve, it's me, customer: When you got problems, you should head straight to the top. That's what one Apple customer did when he emailed Steve Jobs about his iMac woes. A representative from Steve's office called him back two days later, offered their apologies and indicated they would be sending out a free iPod for his trouble.

 

Radiohead gives it away -- almost: Radiohead refuses to place its new album on the iTunes music store because it wants to sell the album complete, as opposed to individual tracks. Instead, the band is selling the album on it's website, for whatever price you want to pay. Touché Radiohead.

 

And Finally: Hey look, "Family Guy" is available on iTunes. Imagine how great it would look on your iPhone.

iphones are sweet but I've only seen the thing in person one time and I'm already tired of looking at it.

You're tired of looking at it? That's the best you can do? I asked you to come up with a major Mac story that this site should've covered. And the best you can do is complain some more. If you can't find a major news item, what makes you this site can?

I could complain about how the majority of news we hear about Apple is either the iPhone or a Lawsuit, but if that's the only news worthy information, then I'll take whatever I can get. It would be nice if more info could be given on new processors coming out, or if now is a good time to purchase an iMac/book,pod, etc. Give me nerd news please. ^-^

And the winner for lamest website in history goes to....

...

Radiohead!!!!!!

Give me a break. That website is horrible. Also, from what I've read the part that you can download for whatever price you choose is not the entire album so I don't understand the issue.

Quote from the website: "We value your custom. You are currently in a queue."

Reminds me of "All your base are belong to us."

youShutUp!

If it's news about Apple in any form, I *DO* want to read about it here, and I don't care if you don't. Glory days are back at Apple and I'm loving it!

I don't have an iPhone, by the way. I never even bought an iPod yet, but it's Apple news and I'm curious to read about it.

OK, I'm sick of hearing about the iPhone. You guys need to start a mag called iPhone/Life so we can start hearing about Macs on Mac/Life. iPhones are cool but its tiring to see them on the headline of every article since they came out.

You guys hate the iPhone news, but instead of complaining, how 'bout pointing out to ML what Mac related stories should lead the news?

Tell us, what MAJOR Mac news item should ML have led with today? New content (like Family Guy) on iTunes isn't MAJOR news. Come up with something. I dare you.

Every news organization in the US is covering the chick's lawsuit against Apple. Do a search for "iPhone" and you see everyone and their brother is talking about 1.1.1 or Price discrimination or "Apple's price cut hurt my sales on e-bay".

So... Why should MacLife ignore these topics? Personally I don't have an iPhone. I want one... pretty badly but things just haven't worked out for me on the financial side yet. (simple math Starving WebDesigner ≠ $400) Anyway So I don't have one yet. Just like I don't have a Camera that shoots Camera Raw, but do I yell at Scott Kelby every-time he is talking about the latest functionality with CS3? No, just because it's not important to me doesn't mean it's not important to someone else

They only thing I am sick of is hearing people complain about iPhone news. Besides... It's hard to cover Mac News when there is NOTHING going on!
