Hopefully this is the last mention of the iPhone for a little while (and I don’t think I’m the only one who’s sick of the hype already). But the question needed to be asked. I’m not going to ask you to choose between the two, because if we’ve all come to any conclusion, it’s that RIM’s corporate business is still safe while on the consumer front, all mobile manufacturers are shaking.
This week we ask you: what will the iPhone’s effect be on the entire wireless industry? Will we see quicker releases? More innovation? Buy-outs? Civil war? Let me know. The winner this week, strangely enough, will walk away with a $20 gift certificate from iTunes (hopefully not to use on their iPhone in June).
Last week, NDA risk was the topic of our weekend contest. We asked if you would “take one for the team” and post leaked pictures and information even if you knew it could cost you or a friend their employment. Jason had a lovely and conscientious reply, so he’s walking away with three games from Magmic.
“I donâ€™t know anything really about NDAs, but what I do know is that if you are really somebodyâ€™s friend, you donâ€™t do something that can get them in trouble. Itâ€™s as simple as that. Whether you signed a paper or not, if your friend said they would get in trouble if anyone else saw it and then you still posted pictures of it on the internet, you SCREWED UP. But, Iâ€™m from Indiana, maybe things are simpler here.”
If “simpler” is what you want to call it, then we’ll let you, Jason. Congrats on the win. And everybody else – enjoy your weekend and check out the great editorial content that BBCool will be churning out over the next few weeks. New columnists, new angles, new stories, new things to bitch and moan about. Cheers.
