iPhone: Not GSM nor CDMA but Wi-Fi Network

unrumor it

Rumor has it that Apple is building a phone with built-in Wi-Fi service that would allow customers to make calls and download data and music from the free or cheap Wi-Fi networks proliferating in urban and suburban settings, bypassing traditional cellular networks. Both scenarios underscore Jobs' aversion to ceding control to telcos such as Cingular, Verizon (Charts), T-Mobile and Sprint (Charts), which exercise huge control over the entire wireless food chain in the U.S.

Samsung Buyout Ailing Sony?

unrumor it

Fact A: PS3 is doomed to fail
Bushnell, who started Atari, is one of the grandfathers of the video game industry. When asked about about which areas he still follows of his former industry, he said,
"It wasn’t anything brilliant that they did. With the PS and PS2 it was timing. They had the right pricing at the right time [and were] almost the accidental winner," answered Bushnell. "It would not surprise me if a year from now they’ll be struggling to sell 1 million units. [Factoring in the PS3’s price], I think in the U.S. the number of early adopters you have is actually around 300,000."

Fact B: Sony's PS3 failure leads to its financial disaster.
Analysts believe the company will lose US$3.29 billion on its PS3 business over the next two years.

The above article explains that the future of Sony depends on the success of the PlayStation 3. One of the things it said was that last year, out of $67.94 billion in revenue, only 1.65% of that was profit. With most of its other divisions not doing so well (its music department is already disliked by many, thanks to the Digital Rights Management fiasco), the company's fate seems to rest with the video game division's PS3.

Fact C: Samsung has been eyeing on game market and it is desperate to expand its business..
1. Samsung developed several mobile game phones.
2. Samsung is the biggest sponsor of World Cyber Games(WCG).
3. Samsung recently began to publish several Korean online games including "Dungeon and Fighters".
4. Samsung has been providing key components for game consoles.
5. The most crucial fact: One subsidiary of Samsung Group, Samsung SDS, actually developed its own game console.

Britney Spears a Pill Popper?

unrumor it

We know pop princess Britney Spears has been enjoying her boozed panty-free nights out but is she also a pill popper? According to In Touch weekly, Britney Spears dined at celebrity eatery Dan Tana's this week and was spotted leaving the joint with a glass of wine as she walked to her car. According to sources while Britney paid a visit to the ladies' room, where she plopped her purse down on the counter and in front of several witnesses opened her bag to reveal a bounty of pills inside.

One eyewitness told the magazine, "There was a bottle of Paxil (an antidepressant) and a bottle of Xanax (for anxiety) that she took out and put on the counter. It looked like a pharmacy in there." The magazine also claims in their latest issue that Britney has allegedly been spending a lot of time in the rest rooms of clubs and after-hours parties lately. If you know that every move you make is watched or photographed, you’d think she would be a little more cautious…after all, this is Hollywood, news spreads like fire

Apple cannot use 'iPhone' for its phone?

unrumor it

The inquirer suggested that Apple would be hard to use 'iPhone' which has been a trademark of a Canadian company, 'Comwave' for about two year.

The problem can be summed up by saying there is a company in Canada called Comwave. It has been using the name iPhone in the US and Canada for a while now, about two years.

Now, if you go to the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (kind of like military intelligence but more evil) and so a search under Trade-Marks for iPhone, you will see three documents, an opposition, a search and an abandonment by Cisco.

The US PTO also lists two of note, one by Ocean Telecom Services and the other by Teledex LLC. It is pretty certain that the Ocean application is from Apple, but the Teledex one beat it by a year.
