AT&T drops iPhone data
iPhone users will no longer require a data connection from AT&T, while Sonnet has updated many of its products to work with Leopard, and Yorktown University is releasing over thirty courses and seminars through iTunes U. AT&T recently dropped the EDGE network requirement for iPhone users, allowing users to save $20 per month. TUAW reports that AT&T customers can call AT&T and have the data portion of their account rendered inactive. While this will save money per month, customers will lose access to their visual voice mail and will not be able to access the internet if they are not bound to a wireless router.
Sonnet recently certified its entire product line to be Leopard compatible - from its PCI/PCI-X/PCIe cards, to ExpressCard/CardBus adapters, and its venerable Encore ST/MDX lineup of processor upgrades - which the company advertised they are the largest provider of Leopard-compatible products currently on the market.
iTunes U will host a large quantity of content from Yorktown University, including 31 courses and seminars recorded at the institution. Yorktown will initially release 10 recordings, ranging in subject from the History of Ethics, and The Progressive Era, to the History of Art, and principles of Genealogy. The University says that they will release these to the public, free of charge, and that the rest of the seminars will be available in December.
