More iPhone stuff

Advertisements

The network folks say that in the first two weeks of the iPhone’s release we saw 124 people with iPhones authenticate to our campus WiFi network, which they need to do to access off-campus resources. Given that it’s summer, that’s a pretty quick ramp-up for a new device. The breakdown was about two-thirds employees, one-third students.

There’ve been reports of iPhones causing network problems at Duke University – we’re not seeing those problems here, so it may be specific to some types of network equipment in use at Duke.

Jason Ediger from Apple points out these iPhone Tech Talks that Apple is hosting – none in Seattle yet, unfortunately.

Josh Larios showed me the site for WebShell, an ajax-based ssh client for the iPhone. I haven’t got it to work yet.

There’s another twitter client designed for the phone, this one from thincloud.

Gizmodo likes JiveTalk as an IM client for the iPhone – does AIM, iChat, MSN, Yahoo!, GoogleTalk, ICQ, and Jabber – currently in a free alpha.

  1. I’ve been using pockettweets for Twitter thus far – been impressed with its responsiveness even over EDGE. Of course, Twitter’s own mobile interface is faster, but not at all as sexy. 🙂

    Here at the corporate workplace, it seems I’m doing 2-3 “hallway demos” a day with my iPhone. Of course, the usual end-result is that whinge about the differences from the Crackberry at their hip – push email, full Exchange integration, and lack of a keyboard. Which is about the same thing I hear when they drool over my Mac – they’d love to have a Mac, if only it worked just like their Windows machine.

    Heh. Sometimes I really miss the more open-to-new-things environment of Higher Ed.

  3. Very interesting statistic. It will be fascinating to see how many are on campus when I get back. I personally have still never seen an iPhone in real life. I work at HP and expect to have at least seen in passing but that isn’t the case.
