Beckman, David and Hirsch, David (2001, December). Just married: Cell phone and Palm. ABA Journal, 68-70. The merger of a Palm handheld computer and a mobile telephone is the first device that combines cell phone mobility with powerful computing. Thus, merger of mobility and muscle produces pocket-size prodigy. Hirsch mentioned the Smartphone, by San Diego-based Kyocera, combines a cell phone and a fully functional Palm in a single pocket device. Compared with a regular Palm, it is a little thicker, a little taller and seems a fraction of a second slower to respond to the stylus. The screen is slightly smaller and the device slightly heavier, though the difference is not very noticeable. But the negatives are more than made up for by the positives like no more need for a separate pager or a separate cell phone, greatly enhanced cell phone functionality, and a wonderfully enhanced Palm complete with wireless Internet.

The AT&T executives visited Apple last year to provide Apple engineers a “crash course” in wireless networking to reduce the load that iPhones were putting out on the network, said John Donovan, AT&T’s chief technology officer, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. As a result, Apple tweaked its iPhones to communicate with AT&T’s towers and mitigate network overload, according to Donovan. Levy, Steven (2004, July 26). iPod nation. Newsweek.

Life had tossed Apple's CEO Steve Jobs a softball, and early in 2001 he ordered his engineers to catch it. On that February, Apple's hardware czar, Jon Rubinstein, picked a team leader from outside the company who is an engineer named Tony Fadell. "I was on the ski slopes in Vail when I got the call," says Fadell, who was told that the idea was to create a groundbreaking music player and have it on sale for Christmas season that year. The requirements are a very fast connection to one's computer via Apple's high-speed Firewire standard so songs could be quickly uploaded. A close synchronization with the iTunes software is to make it easy to organize music. An interface is simple to use and gorgeous. Fadell was able to draw on all of Apple's talents from Jobs on down. VP Phil Schiller came up with the idea of a scroll wheel that made the menus accelerate as your finger spun on it.
