New iPhone

"Over the course of two weeks in June, Apple will deliver more new phones than any mobile handset manufacturer in history." So says an article by Tom Yager.

To understand why this is so, read the article. Hint: the free software upgrade available to all iPhone users represents a huge improvement, and the new iPhone 3GS is a compelling upgrade.

Full disclosure: I am long AAPL and I own an iPhone 3G at the time of this writing.

Apple: Innovation at its best!

FYI. Here is an Apple update regarding long-term storage of its notebook batteries:

"If you don't plan on using your notebook for more than six months, Apple recommends that you store the battery with a 50% charge. If you store a battery when it's fully discharged, it could fall into a deep discharge state, which renders it incapable of holding any charge. Conversely, if you store it fully charged for an extended period of time, the battery may experience some loss of battery capacity, meaning it will have a shorter life. Be sure to store your notebook and battery at the proper temperature. (See 'Notebook Temperate Zone.')"

....but then we have this bit of info regarding the iPhone:

'Could Your iPhone be the most dangerous cell phone ever?'

Worth the read and or listen.

Analog cell phones--now a thing of the past--emitted enough radiation to potentially cause problems such as this guy is talking about. Modern phones, however, which use digital technologies such as CDMA and WCDMA, use only a tiny fraction of the radiation energy that analog phones used. There have been numerous studies showing that the new phones are very unlikely to create health problems.
