"I Take the iPhone Home"  —  Somewhere in the unwritten amendments to the U.S. Constitution it is stipulated that every gadget reviewer is entitled to his or her personal iPhone quibble.  Here's mine: when you're transferring content from your computer to the iPhone, you can't simply drag …

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 …

Big iPhone headache: Waiting for AT&T activation  —  So I admit it: I bought an iPhone.  —  That was the easy part.  But I should have realized that if the customer service whizzes at AT&T could find a way to mar what was otherwise a perfectly pleasant experience, it would.

iPhone madness: This hot phone now sold through malware  —  This morning, Sunbelt researchers discovered a new custom Trojan that attempts to steal money by selling a fake iPhone.  This Trojan looks custom-built and has very poor coverage by AV vendors (report here).
Tim Wu / Slate:
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 …

Toshiba kicks out its own 4GB microSDHC card  —  Oh, Toshiba.  Usually we wouldn't react too kindly to jumping in the game nearly half a year late, but considering just how rare these 4GB microSDHC cards still seem to be, we'll give you a pass on this one.  Sure enough, Tosh is finally ready …

Rise of the Rose Bashers?  —  A curious thing has happened with Kevin Rose's new startup Pownce: the Digg users really hate it.  For a service whose success will rely on the founder's credentials and referring traffic over from the popular news site, that's a little worrying.
