Wall Street got vicious and took nigh on to a $9 bite out of Apple on Tuesday, the stock's worse day in seven years, after AT&T, the iPhone's sole carrier, reported that only 146,000 of the gadgets were activated in the first 30 hours of sales. That was the 30 hours before the second quarter closed shut, and the number was far below the market's opium eaters-like expectations of hundreds of thousands moving. The news hit a day before Apple reported its own quarter and was aggravated by a report from CIBC World Markets saying iPhone demand had been in "significant decline" for 10 days in part because of AT&T's slow Internet speed. CIBC is betting a new iPhone model comes out in November that can use AT&T's faster network. Apple seems not to agree. Anyway, by the time Apple's numbers were out and its conference call finished on Wednesday, the stock after-hours had hit... (more)

iPhone Developer Summit Names Kevin Hoffman Conference Tech Chair

iPhone Developer Summit (www.iphonedevsummit.com) announced today Kevin Hoffman as the Tech Chair of the Conference. The letter from the Tech Chair at the conference Website contained the following message: What's the impact of the iPhone going to be on the delivery of rich content to mobile users? How does Google's new Android differ from the iPhone SDK and iPhone Safari development? When should you use the iPhone SDK versus developing web applications? The release of the Apple iPhone and the iPod Touch has renewed interest in computing devices controlled with direct hand input (either by touch and/or pen), putting "gesture-based" interfaces squarely onto the menu of what developers want to learn more about. But gesture-based design is just one of the myriad topics that have suddenly become red-hot. Others include questions about how to build apps using the new A... (more)

My Three iPhone Predictions For 2010

iPhone Summit at Cloud Expo Yeah, it's this time of the year. Again. Making predictions is so tempting... This year I'll cover just the iPhone. 1. Apple will let Flash Player on iPhone no later than October ’10. They don’t have a choice, if they want to stay competitive. Enough of a crippled Web browser already. 2. ActionScript won’t kill, but will seriously damage Objective-C as the language of choice for development of iPhone applications. The programs written in ActionScript will be a lot more entertaining and engaging than today's iPhone applications. 3. The next version of the Droid phone will be so cool, that I’ll switch from iPhone / AT&T to Droid/Verizon. Verizon’s phone service is clearly better. I just need a modern device. Lots of people in the USA will do the same. Should I put the money where my mouth is and purchase some VZ stocks? OK. Two more. Not exa... (more)
