AT&T hates its customers . Is there any doubt that even triopolies cause hurt to the average consumer?

What iPhone Battery Case lasts the longest?

Showdown: iPhone 3G/3GS. No surprise that the heaviest and biggest lasts the the longest. Nice measurements. It is great when articles actually have facts.

How much would you pay for an unlocked iPhone?

Beautiful graphic. This came from the Visual Loop website I mentioned earlier.

White guilt and iPhones

1 million workers. 90 million iPhones. 17 suicides. Who’s to Blame? Magazine. Interesting piece that examines the lives of people who make iPhones. I have to wonder what jobs the factory workers would have if they didn’t make iPhones. Perhaps we would have a green technology instead, and making items to conserve and make the most of the limited resources we have. It is hard to imagine an economy that supported science and technology and human worth instead of capital generation. Perhaps the day once we have pumped all the oil, we might become more wise.

Ziatron found a more reliable solution than using Bluetooth.

I also have a Honda Pilot (without the environment damaging Daytime Running Lights).

I found that the Bluetooth interface is not reliable.

It seems like every other time there is a new version of the iPhone firmware or an update in the firmware to my car radio the Bluetooth interface stops working.

I have since changed to a hardwired dock connector in all my cars. These ALWAYS work.


Just about any car audio shop can install these at a low cost.

They are unaffected by firmware updates, and they charge my iPhone and iPod at the same time. So when I get out of my car I have a fully charged iPhone.

Go hardwired, it will ALWAYS work.

Something like:
