Apple Eyes The Wireless Auction

by Peter Burrows, BusinessWeek

Two sources tell BusinessWeek that Steve Jobs & Co. have studied the implications of joining the auction, which will be held Jan. 16. The winners will get rights to use the spectrum that analog TV broadcasters are handing back to the government in 2009, given their mandated move to digital television.

Apple Cripples iPod Touch, Eliminates "Add" Button From Calendar

by Gizmodo

According to support discussions and their own description pages, Apple has remvoed the ability to add events in the iPod touch's calendar, even while it uses the same operating system and application frameworks as the iPhone.

If this is true, then it is really sad for Apple and Apple customers. After mocking Microsoft of having different versions of the same operating system, to have Apple pull the same trick is simply beyond words.

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

The mystery — at least for me — continues. Is the iPod touch a PDA? In other words, can one enter new appointments and contracts and stuff on the iPod touch, just like the iPhone, and not just read them, just not the old iPods? The latest words seems to be pointing towards the latter...

Steve Jobs: iCame, iSaw, iCaved

by Dvaid Carr, New York Times

Let me get this straight: Steve Jobs insists that songs on iTunes cost 99 cents and television episodes cost $1.99 because consumers crave simple pricing.

Except, of course, when it comes to Apple's own products.

Is Steve Jobs Sick Of The Cell Phone Industry Already?

by Seth Proges, CrunchGear

I'm not sure what kind of backroom wheeling and dealings Jobs has had with AT&T, but I would bet money that they have been littered with frsturation and tension. I would also bet that Steve has the date his exclusivity agreement with AT&T expires circled on his calendar.
