“Apple Inc. Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook on Tuesday reiterated that the company remains on track to release its iPhone mobile-phone product in June,” Rex Crum reports for MarketWatch.

Crum reports, “Cook said it is too early to tell if the iPhone, which also operates as an iPod music and video player, will take sales away from the iPod. ‘The iPod is being sold for a wide variety of uses. We’ll see what happens,’ Cook said, adding that Apple has so far sold 90 million iPods since October 2001.”

  1. alec — that is pretty bad ass. Well done.

    I have a laptop at the office, which is often on the move with me so i need a library that is accessible when i am out of a net connection (like an airplane or a coffee shop). However, if you have a desktop and don’t want to/can’t load your entire music library on to it then this is an awesome solution.

  2. Another great reason to have an Airport. My current problem is firewalls though. At my work, I couldn’t access my home drive due to corporate firewalls. Getting an exception is out of the question. Got a solution that uses port 80 or 443?

  3. Glad you guys like that. I’m having fun with it. But back to my original point, so many people dog the iPhone because of it’s capacity at 4 or 8 gigabytes. iPhone has wifi and Edge network capabilities. So if you can do something similar with iPhone and have your entire library available to you wherever you have cel phone service, does the onboard capacity really seem such a big stumbling block?

  4. “QUESTION: What impact will the 10 Million iPhones running OSX have on MAC/OSX market share? Will these units be factored into the calculations of OSX market share?”

    If every cash register running Windows variants count, then iPhones certainly will.

    @ alec, thanks for the walkthough, I can’t wait to do this!


    MW: ‘herself’ (and no one else)

  5. alec — battery life?

    Steve Jobs said in his keynote that the iPhone would get 5 hours of talk time, video playb back or 12 hours of audio playback. I charge my phone everday. I don’t think I would need more than 5 hours of use out of it everday.
