Posted in AT&T,eMusic,Mobile Phones,News,Services by Chris Weber on July 31st, 2007

eMusic partners with AT&T to provide independent label songs to download to mobile phonesToday eMusic, who is the second largest online retailer of music behind iTunes, announced along with AT&T that they together will be providing a service to allow people to buy and download songs directly to their cellphones with no computer in between.

eMusic will be offering through the mobile service almost all of the 2.7 million songs available currently from the online service, DRM free as always, which feature only independent labels and not as many mainstream artists as rival services. They do however carry a number of popular artists such as Paul McCartney’s and his latest album.

The songs will be priced a little higher then they are online due to the increased cost of transferring them through the mobile network. Where $9.99 would get you 30 songs online, $7.49 will get you only 5 …

iPhone’s First Class Action Lawsuit

Posted in Apple,AT&T,iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on July 27th, 2007

Apple and AT&T see class action lawsuit over iPhone batteryNot surprisingly, Apple and AT&T are seeing their first class action lawsuit over the iPhone regarding its internal battery. According to the filed suit the allegations state, “The battery enclosed in the iPhone can only be charged approximately 300 times before it will be in need of replacement, necessitating a new battery annually for owners of the iPhone.”

The Plaintiff claims that he did not know, nor was disclosed to the public prior to purchase, that the iPhone battery was in a sealed unit with the battery soldered in place. I don’t know how far this will really go since Apple’s website states that the battery will retain 80% of its original capacity after 400 charging cycles. Either way we all knew it would happen eventually and the non-removable battery in iPods and iPhones have been a …

iPhone Users Stuck on Hold

iPhone showing slow activation times with AT&TThe weekend launch of Apple’s brand-spanking new iPhone was a tremendous success if you’re a shareholder in Apple stock, but if you’re one of the unfortunate customers that have been left out in the dark without activation by phone carrier and Apple iPhone partner AT&T then success is a four-letter swear word.

As iPhones flew off store shelves across the country over the weekend some customers found that Apple’s supposedly easy-as-pie activation scheme for the iPhone via iTunes turned out to be a never-ending nightmare. After registering their iPhone, selecting a plan and paying by credit card the iPhoners were told to wait for a confirmation email…and wait they did (and are still doing.)

Some bloggers and reporters (like CNET’s Declan McCullagh) gave a blow-by-blow account of enduring hours while waiting on hold to speak with AT&T or Apple customer …

BlackBerry Curve available May 31 from At&THere’s another release that just made it within its announced time constraints, launching on the last of the month. RIM and AT&T have announced the official release of the BlackBerry Curve, available through AT&T starting tomorrow, May 31st for a price of $199 with a two year contract and a mail in rebate, of course.

The BlackBerry Curve is the latest, smallest and lightest BlackBerry smart phone with a full QWERTY keyboard that RIM has produced. In fact, AT&T (through a predecessor company) was the first carrier to introduce a BlackBerry wireless solution back in ’99 and is now the first with the Curve. The features available in this phone combined with the price is almost enough to make a guy want to switch carriers.
