What is on Emory's BlackBerry 7100t?

BlackBerry 7100tIf you’re as into the BlackBerry 7100t as your hopelessly addicted editor, you’ll want to read Emory’s list of what’s on his 7100t:

First, the UI. T-Mobile’s theme for the 7100 was quite possibly designed by war criminals. Certainly not UI experts. The icons are bad, the details are fuzzy and sometimes seem mis-matched, and the color scheme sucks. I changed over to the old-school Icon theme that just puts everything on one screen. That way I could hide unused icons like that stupid “Download Fun!” one, and the “Compose” shortcut. If I want to compose an email, I do it from Messages or from the Address Book.

T-Mobile: Get (Hacked) More

SecurityFocus’ Kevin Poulsen broke a story about a 21-year-old hacker that had access to T-Mobile’s customers names, addresses, social security numbers, voicemail passwords, and get this, their Sidekick photos. What’s worse is that he also nabbed some pretty sensitive email from the US Secret Service. Why the hell are those guys sending confidential email from their Sidekicks anyway?

A sophisticated computer hacker had access to servers at wireless giant T-Mobile for at least a year, which he used to monitor U.S. Secret Service e-mail, obtain customers’ passwords and Social Security numbers, and download candid photos taken by Sidekick users, including Hollywood celebrities, SecurityFocus has learned.
Twenty-one year-old Nicolas Jacobsen was quietly charged with the intrusions last October, after a Secret Service informant helped investigators link him to sensitive agency documents that were circulating in underground IRC chat rooms. The informant also produced evidence that Jacobsen was behind an offer to provide T-Mobile customers’ personal information to identity thieves through an Internet bulletin board, according to court records.

The PowerPage are huge GSM and T-Mo advocates and we’re wondering what the company is going to do to compensate the victims of this attack and prevent it from happening again? Verizon, can you hear me now?

From Engadget and PCWorld we get word of the first iTunes-compatible phone:

Not quite the magical unveiling of the iPhone that we’ve all been waiting for (guess that could still be in the offing at Macworld or something), but Motorola executive VP Ron Garriques showed off the first iTunes-compatible handset during his keynote address at CES yesterday. He wouldn’t cough up anything much about the phone itself or when Apple fans everywhere will finally be able to feel whole, but the phone itself did have an iPod-like navigation interface and sync with iTunes just like a proper iPod.
