iPhone to get MMS Client

18 March 2009

Finally!  One of the great pains about the iPhone (besides the lack of cut/paste) was the absence of an MMS client.  Sending an MMS to an iPhone user entailed the iPhone user going to a website on a PC and entering in a password and picture id to retrieve it. Yesterday they announced that iPhone 3.0 was going to have an MMS client…among other things. Now lets hope they have their upgrade process working better this time than the day they launched the 2.2 upgrade!!

I always find it a bit amusing working with Wireless Carriers when they hand me an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) for “Project Dinkelburg” with clues to what the project actually is. (I’m not using any real-world code words here, so don’t bother trying to Google a “Project Dinkelburg”.)  If you read through the text of the NDA, there are many clues as to what the project is actually about, and in theory, I could refuse to sign the document and be legally with in my rights to discuss the clues listed in the NDA with anyone.  Of course, these same Wireless Carriers are my major customers, and I would not be working with them not long after I did discuss any clues. I guess its kind of a ‘Catch-22′ for them as they have to create an NDA that will be legally binding, but to do so they have to include information that really should be NDA. Keeps lawyers employed I guess :)
