One of the greats, and featured podcast here on TheMNT is Adam Christianson widely popular Maccast. This show has been such a valuable resource in my switch that I recommend it to all Mac users. This week, Adam features Oregon indie rockers, Tango Alpha Tango, personal friends and mates of TheMNT! Check out the podcast for a listen, or check them out on iTunes and get a copy of their amazing new album “Rebel Sons of Cowboys” on Outgo Records.
Apple has just announced the predecessor to the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G. It’s pretty much everything that the rumor sites have been speculating, GPS, 3G, thinner, and yet the most surprising factor is the price. Apple has slated the 8GB iPhone 3G to start at a staggering $199! Not surprising to The MNT, mind you ;).
We have been on the ball, predicting that magic $199 this summer, in aims of Jobs hitting that ambitious 10 million iPhones before 2008’s end. Looks like that goal is easily in reach. It will be unveiled in 22 countries on July 11.
There is a slew of software changes as well, as Apple includes a more open OS X on the phone which allows developers to create apps like on Macs everywhere (including games). We hope Bungie (of Halo fame) has a few tricks up their sleeves for the iPhone.
[Update] After viewing the WWDC Keynote, it is obvious that Apple is taking the iPhone, it’s “third leg” of their business, very seriously this year. The rollout of the iPhone 3G will be in 70 countries total, at the rock bottom price of $199. The App Store, where iPhone users can purchase games, apps, and productivity tools will clearly be as successful (and productive) as the iTunes Store.
The iPhone news/rumors are pouring in, with the latest being this apparent leaked photo of the actually hardware, including TheMNT’s rumored Product (Red) iPhone. The pics/details include tidbits about built in video iChat, Tri-Band and 3G.
Weezer. Is back. Buy.
On another note, six days till WWDC. New iPhone 2.
