Sweet! Apple's iPhone

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, Quad-Band GSM (yay! world-wide phone!), EDGE (No 3G!?)
OS X, Safari (I bet this will work just like Nokia's S60 browser.)
Collaboration with Yahoo - free IMAP email to all iPhone customers!
Google Maps and Widgets

I am hoping this will work wirh Skype, but I don't think Cingular will like it at all...

The Price:
4GB model = $499
8GB model = $599
Shipping in June!

Wait. This price is for 2-year contract with Cingular.... I knew it...

Search 2.0?

Everything goes 2.0. What's next?
According to Read/WriteWeb, the next 2.0 is a "Search".

This article shows the results of the concepts to beat Google. The top idea of the next generation search is the Artificial Intelligence. Yet there's no true AI search engine on market yet, the closest possible so far is Hakia that I already liked it because more knowledge and news based results, mainly recently posted blog entries, are listed as the search results, and they are quite different from that of Google.

Here's a list of other suggestions:

  1. Artificial Intelligence (e.g. Hakia, Powerset)
  2. People Powered Search (e.g. del.icio.us, ChaCha)
  3. Vertical Search (e.g. SimplyHired, Technorati)
  4. Personalized Search (e.g. Collarity)
  5. Clustering (e.g. Clusty, SearchMash)
  6. Social Search (e.g. Eurekster, Rollyo)
  7. Visualization (e.g. Quintura and Kartoo)
  8. Previews (Snap, Live Image Search)
