I was trying to figure out why my iPhone was automatically resizing an image to 640×480 when sending it through email… but that’s a feature, not a bug, according to Mobileburn:

The user has no ability to choose the photo resolution or set a white balance mode. Nothing. In fact, when an image from the camera is emailed to somebody with the Mail application, the resolution is automatically reduced to VGA (640×480 pixels). You have no control over that, either.

Pardon me, but that’s just iTarded. At least my first photo went off without a hitch. I asked everyone in chat to smile and say cheeeeeeeeeeese:

Say Cheeeeeeeeeeese!

I Got My Birthday Present Early

I’m always grateful for gifts, but I do have a few guidelines for family members who ASK ME WHAT I WOULD RATHER HAVE. I do have a running list of stuff I’d like to have but would never actually purchase for myself – and I also have a list of things that I would much rather purchase for myself:

  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • Shirts
  • Pants
  • CDs / DVDs
  • Software
  • Food
  • Books

There are also things I never would have expected to receive from anybody in a million years…

In other words: I was iPwnd by my own wife.

iPonzi iPurchased iPhone – oCrap

Ponzi loves her new iPhone – with a 14 day “review period” she can easily return her phone if she isn’t satisfied with it. Of course, she has faced some problems with the iPhone, namely Outlook synchronization. And, of course, there’s also some security issues with using the built-in WiFi connectivity. Overall, though, she gives the iPhone a 9 out of 10, while I give it an 8 out of 10.

I may get one … someday. It’s articles like these that give me the willies:

If Apple wanted to be “revolutionary,” it would sell an unlocked version of the iPhone that, like a computer, you could bring to the carrier of your choice. An even more radical device would be the “X Phone”—a phone on permanent roam that chose whatever network was providing the best service. Imagine, for example, using your iPhone to talk on Sprint because it had the best voice coverage in Alaska, while at the same time using Verizon’s 3G network for Internet access. Of course, getting that phone to market would be difficult, and Apple hasn’t tried.

How does the iPhone Stack Up Against Other Mobile Phones?

iPhone vs Mobile Phones

http://live.pirillo.com/ – The iPhone succeeds where other phones fail, but a couple of things still need to be fixed; for example, you can’t synchronize your outlook contacts with your iPhone. AT&T said they could fix this problem for an additional $15 service fee.

This is the exact reason most people hate their mobile provider: extraordinarily high fees, expensive service plans, and way too many hidden fees and charges.

Every service provider has their perks and disadvantages. What service provider do you use? Are they good, bad, or mediocre?

The iPod does a Paris Hilton Sex Video

iDont care what you say: the iPhone is not the end-all, be-all iDevice. I refuse to fall iVictim to the iHype, and iReally iWish all you damn iApple iFanboys would get off my iDamn iBack. iGet it already: you love your iPhone. Great. Life goes on. I’ll be interested in the iPhone after a few iFirmware iRevisions down the iRoad. Until then, it remains a locked-down, overpriced device that doesn’t iCompletely trump its iPredecesors.

For the mobile industry, it’s a gigantic leap ahead in terms of usability and experience – but it doesn’t come close to wiping the walls with compelling iFeatures. You tell me that I need to hold an iPhone in my iHands to get the iTrue iPhone iExperience – but I already know that it’s not going to iHave me at “Hello.” Give me until Leopard, at least?! Jeez, I feel like I need to be a dissenter just to balance out all the iEcho chamber iPhone noise.
