The Fall of the Record Business: What Next?

I didn’t find out about The Muffs from a record label!

Separate yourself from the clueless eejits who wear suits, gold chains, and snort coke. You don’t need those bastards anymore or ever again.

iPhone: Poor Compatibility with Web Apps
Aw, shit! So much for my dreams…

For instance, in the Web 2.0-based office suite iZoHo, you can’t actually enter or edit any text, as the iPhone doesn’t trigger its virtual keyboard when users click in a WYSIWYG Editor control. We ran into the same problem with Google Docs and Google Spreadsheet, though those sites aren’t designed for the iPhone. The new, flashier AJAX-based Yahoo! Mail interface also doesn’t work, though the old-school Yahoo! Mail page does.

And this might account for the PC version of Safari stealing blank lines (although it doesn’t do it in the Mac version!):

The Web 2.0-based IM client runs into another problem: the iPhone seems to send a different “return” key code than desktop browsers. The result: while loads, you can’t send any IMs.

A lady brings $16,000 to an AT&T store, buys a kid’s spot in line for $800 and then tries to buy the entire stock of iPhones in the store. Hilarity ensues.

— I think he might be the only actual person who was paid cash to be on line — and he got it by coincidence. I think the hype of people being paid to stand on line was just that: hype. I’m still in awe of how fast the Apple Store Soho processed those 1,000 people on line. Wow.

A few iPhone Safari notes

Bandwidth testing on an iPhone

So after my post about javascript and safari I received a bunch of Q and A about the Edge network. Right now at home I have FiOS (20MB down and 5 MB Up) fiber service which is amazing! Anyway, it took me a bit to find a NON FLASH bandwidth test, normally I used I found bandwidthplace to be able to run a test. With full coverage I got 120.1 kilobits per second with a 14.7 kilobits per second for storage. I was able to download 1MB file in 1.2 minutes. This speed is broadband and pretty solid. I also wanted to note that I jumped on my wifi and did see a 3MB connection, so if you have wifi, JUMP ON IT!

As for people complaining, I used to have a MDA from TMobile and it took for a while just to load IE and Google something. The iPhone passes a lot of the “problems” with mobile browsing but making it more efficent. I can have multiple webpages open at once, I have quick access to Google and keys like .com (although I suggest other keys like .html and www.). The Google Maps is built in so I do not even need to open safari, and I can also save locations which is great for quick browsing.

— well, it’s slow. It looks like in some cases it’s like the Nokia 770 with WiFi! However, this is EDGE, so I could get the Net everywhere.

Great move, you dumbass Suits. Why not just hold your artists down and pour strychnine down their throats?
