iPhone in UK

July 5, 2007

Well, right after having written my previous post about iPhone, I came across an article in The Times, saying that O2 has supposedly received the rights to sell IPhone in UK.

It will be interesting to see how users in UK will react to the iPhone, seeing that over here (in UK) users are generally more sophisticated and demanding when it comes to cell-phones than in the US.

Hmm, I happen to be an O2 customer, and I love gadgets – so even if I really can’t see the point of the iPhone … you never know đŸ™‚

iPhone Hysteria

July 5, 2007

Seeing that I am a Mac switcher, you’d have thought that I’d be over the iPhone like a rash. However, I’m not! I just can’t see the point!! From everything I’ve seen and heard it is a gadget with a beautiful UI, and very limited phone capabilities. It sounds like an iPod (admittedly a wide-screen iPod) with a phone thrown in as an afterthought. Can someone please enlighten me?!!!

I wouldn’t mind though having the iPhone as a (like I mentioned before) wide-screen iPod, without the phone stuff, but including the other features, WiFi, etc, etc. … IF it would have a bigger hard-disk than its paltry 8 gig. Heck, my IPod Nano has 8 gig. Well I can dream, can’t I?!

VMWare Releases RC1 of Fusion

July 4, 2007

VMWare released yesterday RC1 of Fusion (their virtualization app for MacIntel’s). I’ve installed it and it looks OK. One major feature is that they now have Unity support for Windows 2003 Server and Vista.

Other new stuff can be found in the release notes here.

Finally, Happy 4:th of july to you who celebrates that, the rest of us .. (well we can have a drink as well).
