Get out your soldering iron!

It appears someone figured out how to unlock the iPhone from AT&T, but it requires soldering and software modifications. Apple should take the hint! Imagine if Apple sold the iPhone on all networks. The main reason I don't buy an iPhone is everyone I know is on Sprint. If I came off Sprint I would loose my mobile to mobile ability. Take the hint apple!

Huge Day!

Today is going to be a huge day for the market! Big Ben is going to speak, hopefully relieving some concerns over the recent credit crunch. Ben has to make a statement today in order to keep the bears at bay. The fed needs to calm investors and restore some confidence in the domestic market. The dollar is week and credit is shot, but Ben needs to reassure investors that this is just a temporary setback and the worst is over.

On lighter news Apple has summoned the press to the Apple compound to reveal something. There has been a lot of speculation on what exactly Steve Jobs is up to, but the consensus is likely an upgrade to the mac. Apple stock rallied yesterday and has a nice start today on anticipation.

What are the folks over at Google (GOOG) up to? It has been rumored that they are in discussions with cell phone service providers and manufactures to produce a gphone (or perhaps a googphone) following in the footprints of the successful iPhone (AAPL) . What is Google planning on doing different? One of the major differentiations would be the service provided. Google may be able to offer free service to consumers who are willing to be berated with advertising. It is no secret that Google is interested in becoming a player in cell phone applications business including Google maps, Google talk, and Gmail. Apple CEO Steve Jobs even approached Google for map applications on the iPhone. Great reads from Webbalert (video blog), Ars Technica , & WSJ.
