  1. I don't see how Apple allows it on the iPhone/Touch without charging since they'll be losing revenue from app sales.Not sure which apps sales you're referring to, but Apple would sacrifice those sales in a second to have Flash running on the iPhone. They want to sell phones first and foremost. App sales are secondary and only there to make the iPhone a more attractive purchase.Primarily I was thinking of the simple games like tower defenses, paper toss, etc. -- there are so many free flash-based game web sites that I'd think it would eat into the lower-priced game app market.

  4. :popcorn:I was wondering the same thing.You can do that? I thought Flash didn't work on the iPhone/Touch...
  5. How do these external batteries work?You slide it on, like a partial case, and it begins supplying power to the device. You can charge/synch the iPhone while it is attached to the battery pack.How does the Juice pack have power?Its a rechargeable battery pack that you charge via usb.

  7. It does, so does having the screen brightness turned up, and extended use of certain apps, particularly the GPS/Map.Having Bluetooth and/or WiFi enabled will also drain it pretty quickly. I just ordered the Tekkeon MP1200 case/external battery so I can keep everything turned up to the max all day. The reviews also claim (but I have not yet verified) that you can sync the iPhone to your iTunes with a plain old mini-USB cable through the Tekkeon case. If it works, that would be pretty sweet -- it's easy to lay your hands on a mini-USB cable in an emergency. One of the proprietary iPod cables, not so much. There's also the Mophie Juice Packs
  8. Actually, all songs from the iTunes Store are still AAC, not MP3. Seriously? Oh boy...my wife is gonna be pissed that some of our music won't translate to the other devices. Back to Amazon it is for me...eek!
  9. Out of curiosity, why would you do this? AAC is part of MP4 and has better sound quality/compression than MP3. MP3 is more widely supported in portable audio players, car stereos, especially older devices. If someone were buying all new digital audio players and made certain AAC was supported, sure, it would be fine, but since MP3 is more prevalent I lean towards compatibility.Also, I doubt most folks will be able to tell much difference with sound quality at 256kb/s.
  10. top left corner in Itunes, File, I believe, "transfer purchased songs from phone" or something to that..apple only sells aac files? right?iTunes store sells MP3s without DRM, but the files contain your e-mail address (aka iTunes login ID).thasnks.. now a few more...1- can you choose the file type you purchase? or is it all mp3 now?2- if so, how do you choose so all purchases are mp3 in the future? 3- are purchases on the iphone aac or mp3? 4- can you choose those too?thanks sorry to pestNo problem at all. Answering all your questions in a lump here: as of a few months ago, all iTunes songs are 256kb/s MP3s without DRM (yes, you can use them on any mp3 device). Anything bought recently or in the future, through the iPhone or desktop iTunes (they access the same online store), should be an MP3. Older tracks may trigger a "Upgrade to iTunes plus" which is code for "We have DRM free, higher quality versions that you can download for $.30 more per track or cheaper if you upgrade a whole album. If you're looking for MP3s, Amazon has some great deals on a regular basis and a piece of "download software" that imports the tracks right into iTunes.

  12. looks like no one got to this one so I'll do what I can...1) I have an original, 1st gen iphone, non-3G...guess that makes it 2G?...anyway...it works "fine" surfing the web. I'm not saying it's "fast" web browsing over the phone network, but in a pinch (need some important info, wasting time waiting for an appointment, whatver) it gets the job done.2) as far as I know, iTunes is the only way to deal with your music on an iphone. As a Mac user, I can't imagine any other way to manager my music. itunes is software and it's basically just a music collection browser. Simplest interface in the world. The other main feature is it's also a browser to apple's online iTunes store where you can buy and download music.iTunes keeps your music nice and organized.3) yes, wifi is as simple as you think it is. I have a wireless network in my house and at work. I walk into my house/work and my iphone finds the network. As expected, web browsing and email downloading is MUCH faster using wifi instead of 2G. 4) I just have yahoo and gmail email accounts and those are kind of integrated into the iphone, in that, when you want to setup your email accounts, there are shortcuts for yahoo and gmail accounts and it's super easy to set up. I don't do earthlink so I can't say for sure, but I think the iphone seems to cover all bases with push and pull email, so I couldn't imagine it wouldn't work. Someone else could probably give more specifics.Besides that, the iPhone is amazing. Ever since they offered Apps on the phone, it's one of the most amazing all-in-one devices ever created. My only problem with the iPhone is that AT&T's coverage kind of sucks in my area. But I wouldn't trade it in for any other phone.I'll add: and if you go with an iphone, change the import settings on CD rips for iTunes from AAC format to a custom, high quality MP3 so you can easily transport your music anywhere. Also, you can buy your MP3s through Amazon and it will import right into iTunes. Some folks have DVD movies and tv shows that they convert to iPhone ready format and import into iTunes, there has to be a thread around here discussing that...
