Unified inbox on iPhone Mail? Heck, no. →
Macworld’s iphone Central is suggesting Apple “Create a unified inbox” for the iPhone. Lord, please, don’t do this, or at least, make it an option. I really don’t want my work email (a coprorate IMAP account) impinging on my persona email (a Yahoo push email account.) I handle the two mail streams at very different times and with different processes. If I had...
iPhone, Box.net, and the end of sync →
I’ve gotten excited by the idea of using box.net as a way of getting files onto my iPhone. With capability of having drag-and-drop file storage for the iPhone, I don’t really miss the USB disk mode present in older iPods - the remote access is like having a 3000-mile long USB cable. Still, you are limited to the file types supported by the iPhone. Support for basic file types is...
iPhone ^= iCal
I was really hoping Mobile Safari could open .ics files, or at least hand them off to Calendar. No luck, though.
Use Box.net to share files with iPhone →
Mashable has a brief article on using box.net from your iPhone, and the box.net blog has several articles with suggestions on how to use the iPhone - both with box.net and otherwise. Box.net has also created a box.net page optimized for the iPhone. I’ve had a box.net account for a while now, but haven’t used it much so far, but these articles gave me an “Aha” moment. ...

There are plenty of examples of Periodic Tables of Desserts, but this is the first time I’ve seen someone develop a calculus of desserts.
iPhone Report: SMS navigation improvements
When using the iPhone SMS feature, there’s currently no easy way to move between SMS messages from different originators. The iChat-like interface for SMS messages does a great job of organizing messages from a single originator, but you need to go back out to the message list to switch to a message from a different originator. If you have several services feeding you SMS messages, or get...
I’ve had my iPhone for the long weekend, and I’m still highly impressed by both the functionality and the integration among those functions. Rather than save up my impressions for a single big review, I plan to post these on my Technodad Tumblog. An RSS feed of the articles is cross-linked in on this blog’s home page. (via Technodada)

iPhone Report: Maps
I’ve been playing with maps on the iPhone. I’m afraid to report it has the potential to induce another level of navigational stupidity, similar to that experienced when using a in-car GPS. I’ve been playing around with it in Southern Maine. It took me a few tries to get the buttonology down correctly, e.g., noticing when to click or unclick the “routing” button. I...
Happy 4th of July
Sitting on the porch in Kennebunk, hound at my feet, blogging from my iPhone. All’s right with the world. Happy birthday, America!
Beauty and the beast
Well, I finally took the plunge and got an iPhone. After a seeing the coverage in the press, and a good recommendation from my buddy Graham, who knows of what he speaks regarding user experiences, I went to the Apple store and tried one out. The preliminaries: Having heard some of the stories about activation, I called my company’s phone plan administrator, and she called AT&T to see if...
