Following the instructions @ ModMyIPhone, I successfully ordered my new iPhone 3G S without a AT&T commitment. Of course, we’ll have to wait for the awesome iPhone dev team to publish an unlock mechanism but I am pretty sure it will be WAY before 2 years (which is AT&T contract commitment).
Check it out!
I haven’t received an email confirmation from Apple. This is not a good sign ;-(
Looks like I just received an email from Apple Store and the iPhone is set to be delivered by June 19th!
After hours of pot calibration, rubber band trick, opening and closing, firmware upgrades, I am able to play it!
As I was thinking more about TuneTo and reading the Wikipedia article about Rhapsody, it made me smile remembering the good ol’ times when Alex and I built a prototype right after Christmas 2000 called Aladdin.
[Except originally we called it SNapster for "Super Napster", something the article doesn't say!]
Digging around my HD, I actually found it! The service obviously is not up anymore but here’s a screenshot of what gave the idea to Listen to buy us (and build Rhapsody).
The concept was that you could search for any song, album or artist and you could stream the music as if it was on your HD. The catch is that you’d have to pay to stream it (and keep streaming it). Sounds familiar isn’t it?
Look at this. Not even 2 weeks of development if I recall…
