In Other Zune News...

Most of the new firmware 30gb Microsoft Zunes fail world wide (and some 80gb), thanks in part to Ozone radiating from Redmond computer terminals, and Steve Ballmer's bald spot. More at 11.

Skippy + MacRumors

I finally, for once in my life, made the front page of the holy site of MacRumors.

Some of you may say that it's merely a site with nothing more than Mac rumors, but you're wrong. The show is run by whom I consider to be a columnist genius, Arnold Kim, affectionately known everywhere around the Interwebs as Arn.

Also doing some amazing work on Touch Arcade, which I follow just as ritualistically, and dominating all of the readers that are looking for the latest info in Stevedom - as far as I'm concerned, he is the single best go to for anything Apple aside from the company website.

Yes. That's why I'm excited. As I've said before - oh (day after) holy day.

The Ad - The Pictures - The 3G

I said it - and I delivered once again. Here is the coming ad from Walmart. The iPhone 3G is proudly displayed on the cover announcing it's presence at Redneck HQ. The world can spin once more.

9:00am on December 28th, these things go on sale. I'd say, come 9:10am, they'll be gone.

I told you all! No one listens to me. I tell them something, and they doubt me, and they go against what I say, and then they end up being wrong and I end up being right, and then they asked me how I was right and how I knew, and then I tell them that I'm always right, and then they believe me, and then, the next thing comes up and the cycle restarts.

Well. I did it. I'm exceptionally proud of myself. You're welcome.

MacRumors, Macenstein, MacSoda, Engadget... Here comes Skippy.

I did it! I snagged the official Walmart ad that comes out this weekend with the iPhone on the cover. I will upload the image when I get home - which means a half hour after I get to relax. By 1:00am I will have the image posted here in this blog for the world to see. The Walmart ad image that was floating around a while back was accurate - $197 with the bigass iPhone 3G on the cover. Amen!!! I have news!!!!!

In the meanwhile, go to for more info. At least that's what the ad says.

Also on the bottom, it lists "Event Dates: Sunday, December 28, 2008 - Saturday, January 3, 2009".

I. So. Rock.

Tekkeon myPower for iPhone

I think I'm just going to have to turn this place into something halfway between a blog containing intellectual worldly insights and an Apple rumor site.

I got wind of an upcoming product along the lines of a case that includes a battery pack that charges / powers the iPhone. Status on sale only say it's "Coming Soon". The Tekkeon myPower page is right here. Interesting, and not as ugly as some of the others.

That, and Pepsi is coming up with a mobile site for the iPhone. Hit up, and you'll come up with a picture of the new can. The main Pepsi site got overhauled recently.

Rumor reporting is new and different. Sorta like fruitcake. Or nog.

I love nog.

Are we all happy now? If I could find where the iPhones in the office are kept, I would snap a few shots of those, but this is the best I can do for now.

Skippy loves you too. You're welcome. Merry Christmas. All that.

Not only that, I posted that within the hour I promised here. Sometimes I amaze me.

Feel free to email me, comment, rave, complain, or claim I photoshopped my iPhone's camera's picture. Whatever. It's there. I told you before, I'm telling you now, and I will keep telling you. The iPhone is coming to Walmart. The same iPhones we know that are out right now. I told you.

Walmart gets iPhoned

I am here to tell you, faithful loving Walmart employee that I am, that we will 100% positively surely will be selling the 8gb iPhone at Walmart. The 16gb version may or may not be reserved for Apple and AT&T, so we're unsure if we're going to land that or not. If Best Buy didn't, we probably won't. They're freaking Best Buy.

Oh, and this is the image on PCWorld, it's not mine. MacRumors also has it as a whole - computer, Wire cardboard prop, and all.

Where's the negative in this? The clothing sections of Walmart have nothing to do with electronics.

Why does that matter? I want to sell people motha' fuckin' iPhones.

Anyway it goes, I will be in the same place that sells iPhones, and that's an awesome idea. I'll be feet away from them 4 or 5 days a week. It's like I just gained custody of my adopted children after never seeing them. Which makes no sense. Which makes me a bit like Brad Pitt.

All the info just appeared on "The Wire". That's the big fancy name for the collection of stupid shitsy computer games we have to play when we're hired or rehired at that joint, and all the info that we could possibly never want as employees of such a fine upstanding redneck establishment.

I'll see what else I get later on this week, and I'll see if I can get pictures. I'll see. You'll see.

Watch there be nothing and it doesn't hit our store. That would be my luck.

Maybe this will finally give me some cred. I finally got some dirt on the truth. When people around the world see that Skippy has done it, I will be able to prove that I am amazing. I'm Skippy.
