Apple Yesterday (well, CET in any case), Apple posted its financial results for the second quarter of the 2008 fiscal year (which ended 29 March). While sales of Macintosh laptops and desktops soared to ever greater heights, and while sales of the iPod consolidated itself, the news is not so good for the iPhone. And the dodo will have an Apple TV to play with, soon.

I don't get things like this. I used Opera Mini for over a year. Then I got the iPhone. Two totally different experiences.

Opera makes web browsing passable on a cell phone. The iPhone make web browsing pleasant, and a step below using a regular screen computer. I get tired of seeing all these "Well you need to try Opera Mini!" posts because there's just no comparison. The iPhone is a universe above anything else out there for browsing the web.

I use Opera Mini on my phone with 3G data access and a 320x240 display. Version 4 is worse than version 3. It automatically wants to reduce everything to dots and makes me guess where some content might be that I want to read.

Safari on the iPhone is better but the speed of getting information is pathetic, unless you're on WiFi.

For all those claiming that the work-alikes are useful, they're no better than what I have. They just have touch screen displays and they're pathetically restricted.

Apple needs better hardware and it's apparently coming. If it's like the iPod, it will continue to improve and become cheaper. Right now, it seems that extra stock is being bought and sent to Asia to be unlocked and sold. China and Singapore seem to have plenty now.
