iTunes Phone?

iTunes Phone

Is this the new Motorola / Apple iTunes phone? According to engadget it is.

“This is the moment you’ve been waiting for: obviously we can’t tell you how we got ‘em, but after months of pining away for this, we’ve finally scored some actual live shots of a cellphone running Apple’s new iTunes Mobile software. It might just be an engineering or a production sample, and we can’t guarantee whether this will actually be the first iTunes phone or not, but we do know that we’re looking at a pearly white E790 and that synchronizes with iTunes 4.9 (and has the same autofill menu options as the iPod shuffle—see below). Not sure how much internal memory the phone has, but we do know that this sample shipped with a 128MB TransFlash card that sits opposite the SIM and under the battery and supposedly sounds every bit as good as a full-size iPod and has “excellent bass response”.”

Excuse the mess

If you are a returning visitor, you may have noticed that the site looks a little different. This is NOT the new design for one digital life. It’s the default ‘theme’ for wordpress, my blogging system. Well, almost… I had to make a couple of really minor tweaks to accommodate my image size.

My webhost sent me an email yesterday that said wordpress 1.2, the version I was using, has some big security holes. They are requiring everyone to upgrade to wordpress 1.5. The upgrade was fairly painless, but it meant reverting back to the default theme.

I was actually wanting to find the time to redesign the site anyway, and I was going to upgrade wordpress at that time. I wasn’t quite ready yet though, so I’ll have to use the default theme for now. Implementing the old design is more trouble than it’s worth because it was kind of a hodge-podge of web languages. Maybe this will inspire me to find the time to re-design.

UPDATE (a few hours later): OK, I just couldn’t stay with the default theme. Nothing against the default theme. It’s actually a really nice design based on Michael Heilemann’s, original Kubrick wordpress template. But I’m just not a default kind of guy. Even though this is only temporary (until I have time to re-design), I had to customize it at least a little.
