Mix: Fortune, Fnac, SMS, Projector
Fortune has announced that Apple tops its 26th annual list of America’s Most Admired Companies. In an interview with Fortune Senior Editor Betsy Morris, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said, “We do no market research. We just want to make great products.”
French electronics retail chain Fnac is in discussions to distribute the iPhone in France, according to a Le Figaro report. The French daily cites Fnac head Denis Olivennes as saying that Orange’s exclusive rights for the iPhone in France are “inadmissible.” The report also stated that should negotiations fail, Fnac plans to take legal action.
Although it has been reported by several readers in our comments, Apple has officially acknowledged that a bug where SMS text messages would appear in the wrong order has been fixed in the latest iPhone software. On an Apple support page discussing the problem, the solution now listed is “Use iTunes to update to iPhone Software 1.1.4 or later.”
A new article posted to intstructables.com explains how to make an iPod Video Projector. The project requires cardboard, a mirror, a couple of lenses, does not require any power, and can be made to support any video-capable iPod or iPhone.
