Initial review of iPhone  —  I just spent a couple of hours playing with my new iPhone.  —  I remember that the first few times I try a new cell phone, I wish it would just work the way my old one did.  So I'm trying to factor that in, and imagine what it will be like to use it later, but it's not easy.

Apple iPhone Cell Phone Review - Audio Quality  —  Apple has been pushing the iPhone as a do-it-all device; it makes calls and is the best iPod ever.  But it's still a phone, and the audio quality is the most important aspect of that.  To test the audio quality of calls made with the iPhone …

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 …

iPhone activations hosed until morning?  —  We've been hearing scattered reports some that newly-christened iPhone owners are having a heck of a time finalizing the activation process in iTunes.  That sucks for a couple reasons: first, these puppies are darned near useless without being activated …
