Sprint To Apple: Fuck You Back

Last week, I posted a little blurb Apple made about the Palm Pre and iTunes syncing. It was essentially a big “Fuck You” to Palm and its iPhone competitor, the Pre. Now Sprint is striking back with an ad that directly attacks Apple and AT&T. If things keep up this way, we’re in for a long summer. Link

App Growth: Palm vs Apple

Oh boy. This chart is just TOO GOOD not to post. It shows how long it took Apple to roll out 50,000 applications on its App Store (about 10 months) and compares that to Palm’s turtle-esque growth.

Palm Pre Officially Drops June 6th

Sprint and Palm just let the cat out of the bag: Come June 6th, you’ll be able to pick up a supposedly “decent” rival to the iPhone. The Pre will cost $199.99 after contract agreements and rebates, and will be sold Radio Shack, Best Buy and Walmart. Awesome? I guess, but does anyone use Sprint? I have zero friends with ...

First Palm Pre Review Hits The Web

Embargo? Ha! I laugh at the very notion of withholding back an opinion for a specified period of time! Or at least PreThinking.com does. I have a feeling these guys are breaking a few NDAs here and there by posting a full review of the Pre, but hey, not our problem. While this particular review tends to kiss ass to ...
