Apple Really Wants You to Buy Their New $700 iPhone 3G

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

$700? Yep, that’s what the 16GB model will run you if you don’t want to get the two-year contract from AT&T. But let’s say you play it safe and sign up for AT&T service – some people think that the second-generation iPhone will end up costing you more money. Or maybe you already signed up for the first iPhone – will you be able to easily upgrade? It’s hard to say. (At least you don’t live in Canada, where Rogers rules.)

So much for Twice as Fast, Half the Price. Consult your phone guru for advice here. Some people might actually stick with their existing brick. Good for them.

But not you. You want the latest details on the 3G models from a fake Steve Jobs who gesticulates as if he’s one-quarter Italian. Right? You’re in luck.

Check out the new 3G here.

And if you’re already familiar with the existing iPhone, find out what’s new right here.

Excited? See you in line on July 11, 2008. Let’s hope we’ll get a greeting like this at opening time. But uh oh, are you iReady?  

 You bring the coffee, and I’ll bring the cupcakes.

    Take a Look at Your New Ride – a BMW Isetta 300 for just $28,900.

    Monday, June 2nd, 2008

    This is you. A 1955 (or 1956) BMW Isetta 300 Bubble Window from CarPlanet.com.

    Wasn’t this your dream car ever since you saw the Never Let Me Down Again and Behind the Wheel videos from Depeche Mode?

    It’s not that big:

    The engine is in the back but on the right side, so you might get a little tippy if you carry around a heavy passenger. But that’s a small price to pay for owning this little cutie.

    Steve Wozniak’s Street in San Jose – Woz Way

    Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

    Stephan Gary “Woz” Wozniak means a lot to San Jose. So much so, that they named a street after the famous Apple founder.

    Of course, they didn’t call it Wozniak Way – that would be too formal for the Capital of Silicon Valley. So, Woz Way it is.
