    This thread is for story links that iphone forum members might find interesting, but probably aren't big enough news for the front page. However, I don't like just dumping those links. So, I'm going to put them here from now on.

    Some Aluminum foil stops the GSM buzz on tape adapters. The only news here is that monster's shielded cable isn't adequately shielded.

    This one can't be true. ATT/Apple requires that you return the phone if you cancel the service AFAIK. I'll give it a try though, i'll be going abroad soon it would be nice to have the option of using a local SIM.

    yeah, it has a high 'pipe dream' factor, kind of like the howard forums update rumor post of a few weeks ago.

    That's as insane as the other claim. So,... what? You don't OWN the phone?

    If you're right, that's yet another reason not to go iPhone.

    No, you have to return the phone only if you want to cancel service in the 14-day trial period without paying an early-termination fee.

    Right, sorry i wasnt clear. You could buy the $600 phone carry service for a month and then pay the early termination fee. And then i guess you would own it..... But that would be expensive.

    Daniel Eran, on the myth that Apple Security is bad. He's usually at least ok, but he's kind of all over the place on this one; I think he's over-defending. It makes it hard to read.

    EA interviewed about iPod games. There's no mention of the iPhone in there, probably because EA either has nothing to say or is not allowed to comment. I spoke at length to an EA marketing rep about EA games on the iPhone at a certain industry event, and though he was unwilling to make any comment on record, he indicated that EA *will* have iPhone games. But, there's no mention of it here. Boo urns.

    i think calling this an unlock is erroneous. it's more of a sim hack. i'll lay odds that it's illegal in a fair number of countries.

    Apple Keyboard Changes, made better for right-handed folks, worse for left-handed folks. On my home computer, the mouse is on the right side for both me and my wife, and we're both left-handed, making this product better for us. I think most southpaws will just adapt to it.

    Croatians succeed in hacking the iPhone. Another SIM hack article.

    this dude is basically committing wholesale copyright infringement, with not even any kind of attribution.

    world of warcraft theme. i might mention this one in a post-hacking article; i may do this theme on the spare iphone.

    Doom on the iPhone. It runs, but you can't do anything yet. You can just stand there and get eaten. Don't get me wrong, that's pretty awesome.

    NBC decides against iTunes contract renewal. Usually this just means that they want more money or something out of the deal. The contract doesn't expire until December.
