iPhones iPlenty: the sell-out that wasn't  —  Doesn't it seem like January 9th of this year was much, much more than just a half year ago?  In the nearly six months since it was announced, the iPhone has dominated the technology press.  Coverage online reached such a feverish pitch …

Google Criticizes Moore's Sicko  —  It's unusual for a Google department to do peppered movie reviews.  In Google's health advertising blog - which is, well, trying to sell Google ads to the health industry - they talk about Michael Moore's movie Sicko:  —  While legislators, litigators …

iPhony  —  WHY APPLE'S NEW CELL PHONE ISN'T REALLY REVOLUTIONARY.  —  When the word iPhone appears in Apple press releases, the word revolutionary is rarely far behind.  But what counts as revolutionary?  In Apple's case, the bar is high.  Since the 1970s, the firm has changed both the personal computer and music industries.
Eric Butterfield / PC World:
How Tough Is the iPhone?  —  PC World manhandles the new Apple phone to see how much abuse it can take.  —  Recommend this story?  —  It would be a shame—after waiting hours in line and spending $500 to $600 on an iPhone—to lose it to a minor mishap.  To see how well Apple's phone …
