    Default Ipsf

    I know I already have an unlocked iPhone bought from iphone-singapore.com and I shouldn't be a busybody but I would like to give my thoughts on IPSF.

    Their delay tactics reminds me of Bill Gates methods. I read his book and that was one way to delay their competitors. Bill Gate promised something that he haven't developed, that's how the first term vaporware came about. Basically, IBM needs some software, and the different vendors was trying to compete to get it done, but while everyone is still developing the software, Bill Gates suddenly with nothing at all, declared that they have got the full software done and ready. Which in fact, he lied and there was nothing.

    But that delay tactics using vaporware discourage competitors and bought Microsoft alot of time to start doing the actual development of the software. Microsoft have a long history of announcing vaporware products to screw over the competition and I think this is what IPSF is trying to do.

    I seriously hope the dev guys won't be discouraged on this and keep working to get the real stuff out.

    Default and this?

    And what could you tell me about this company:

    http://blog.iphoneunlocking.com/

    They are doing the same?

    It is strange that the two sites are waiting for tomorrow ( 5 sept ), maybe as it was told in this forums, Apple will release an unlock code and they are blocking that companies.

    Tomorrow we will see what Apple releases, I am hoping an unlock code for my iphone.

    Iphoneunlocking might be a scam, waiting for another company to release their software, copy the code and call it their own. Speculations. Time will tell. For the full story, search the board before commenting.
    Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?

    Sorry dude, I don't mean to offend anyone, I know there are skeptics and believers out here, I just want to give my thoughts. Let's just say if Bill Gates can pull off what he did, why can't some anonymous guys who wanted you to bank transfer the money to them without revealing much do the trick? The money involved here is huge. It's not a few hundred dollars, if they pull it off, they can run away, it's so tempting. Like I said, just giving my thoughts, not trying to offend anyone.

    But Gates and Allan wrote the DOS bootloader on the plane on the way to the client demo (if u believe gates's book) - in this case the software has already been demonstrated so by defination it is not vaporware - unless you believe Engadget and CNN are both in on the scam.

    I would just like to add the fact that crop circles have been found to be fraudulent as well. I watched the discovery channel and it explains how people managed to create crop circles within a few hours. And crop circles have buffered people for centuries, so if people can pull off such frauds, I mean what's it about anonymous people pulling tricks on the Internet with such big monetary rewards for them?

    ok, hkbloke, chill out dude, I'm stopping here. There's a chance you're right, but you gotta say there's a chance this is a scam. So I'm not going to go through this with you, I suggest we wait it out and see? Peace dude, cheers!

    haha - i'm chilled man, just enjoying the circus. There are only 2 options here in my view :

    i) It's 100% legit
    ii) It's 100% a scam with engadget and CNN both willing participants

    I suspect IPSF has a working product but hasn't figured out how to package it so it won't get ripped off an hour after release.
