Apple software sends Iphones into a coma

,----[ Quote ]
| APPLE HAS BEEN avoiding questions recently about an 
| alarming quirk with its new Iphone OS 3.1.
| According to Apple's own bulletin board, fanboys are claiming 
| that Iphone OS 3.1 is "the buggiest update that Apple has yet 
| released for the iPhone." Of course since all Apple software is perfect in 
| the eyes of Steve Jobs this should be relative.

Apple Withdraws Lawsuit Against Wiki Site Owner Over iPhone/iPod
Interoperability Hack Discussion

,----[ Quote ]
| Last November, the EFF took Apple to task for threatening the owner of a wiki
| site. Apple claimed that an ongoing discussion on the site about how to build
| interoperability between iPods and iPhones and alternative software other
| than iTunes violated the DMCA -- which requires quite a novel interpretation
| of the DMCA. After Apple refused to back down, EFF sued in April. Somewhere
| along the way, it looks like Apple's lawyers started to realize that it had
| pretty close to no chance whatsoever and has now withdrawn this particular
| threat.


iPhone suffers as Android buoys Linux cause

| Linux-powered smartphones. The news for Apple's iPhone, however, is not so
| good.


Apple Does As Many Expected: Kills Palm Pre iTunes Syncing

,----[ Quote ]
| The pettiness of Apple continues... Last month, Apple warned potential buyers
| of the Palm Pre that it might break that phone's ability to sync with iTunes.
| It didn't take long for Apple to follow through. In an upgrade to iTunes,
| which Apple claims was for "bug fix" but also to handle "verification"
| issues, it has blocked the Palm Pre from accessing iTunes.
