  • iPhones that are too hot to handle

    Posted June 30, 2009 - 9:10 pm

    According to a report on the Web, a newly-released iPhone 3GS became so hot during normal use, that its white case turned a bit brown. While this toasted iPhone has generated a lot of Internet buzz, let's keep it in perspective. So far as I know, it is the only instance of this happening. In other words, with Apple having reported sales of 1 million iPhone 3GS models during its first weekend of sales, this overheated iPhone is one in a million. As such, I wouldn't worry that this is going to happen to your iPhone 3GS any time soon--if ever.

  • iPhone Availability, Another Snub for AT&T?

    Posted June 16, 2009 - 9:25 pm

    The best place to buy the new iPhone 3GS is--surprise!--direct from Apple. Amid concern about delays for AT&T customers, Apple has already begun shipping new iPhones and is still promising quick delivery for orders placed on its Web site. If AT&T really is facing a short supply of new iPhones, this could be seen as the latest snub Apple has handed the company, its original iPhone launch partner.
