New Years Resolutions for Apple and the iPhone

Greg Kumparek over at MobileCrunch has a list of half a dozen items he wants El Jobso to get to, stat.  Some of the comments are rather pointed:

“I’d be happy (at least here in NYC) if the iPhone could make and receive telephone calls.”  -Joe in NYC

Dear Leader’s Christmas present to shareholders

Being Christmas Eve and all, El Jobso has decided to allow the stock price of Apple to close today at an all time high of $209.04, up 6.94 points (3.43 percent.)  Today was a shortened trading day.  Trading was fueled on reports developers were told to create versions of their iPhone apps that will run on a larger screen, in time for an event next month.  Well, well.

The best alternatives to Apple products?

Don’t blame me, that’s not my header.  Came straight from Gizmodo, it did.  Mark Wilson is the author, and he feels there are alternatives to “every iProduct.” He should know there is no such thing as an alternative, and Apple makes the greatest products in every field.  Like to let Mr. Wilson know how you feel on this issue?  Write him here.

Super primo money quote sure to enrage El Jobso, especially the last part:

“Apple makes some of the most specialized mainstream devices around, but the gear is never very cheap and, let’s face it, it stinks for any one company to own your wallet.”

Apple’s bought LaLa – What does it mean?

You can read about the acquisition and what it means here, and here, and here, here, here , here and freaking here. Good freakin’ hail, people, get a grip, will ya’? Okay? Look, LaLa is dead or was going to be. This was all about buying the brains

of the outfit, using the tech (or not) within the confines of the Apple universe, give ‘the poindexter some Apple stock and options, a little cash, sign a NDA, and that’s it. And now you can say tra-la-la to lala. Ha, ha. ta-da!

LaLa may be acquired by Apple


CNET is rumormongering that Apple is offering to buy streaming music service lala for a boatload of clams, but only if founder Bill Nguyen stays and works for Cupertino. Why, if true? Google wants it, too, and both parties wants what’s in Nguyen’s head. Apple wants to keep Google from starting it’s own music service, especially one that’ll work within Chrome OS.

UPDATE: Reuters has reported Apple, Inc. has succeeded in purchasing LaLa for an undisclosed sum.
