News related to the iPhone once again grabbed our attention this week. For starters, Apple released new iPhone and iPod touch models with more RAM (and higher prices to match).

Meanwhile, Glenn Fleishman discusses AT&T’s recent announcement about their continuing rollout of a 3G cellular network in the United States that will affect users of future iPhone models. Back in the Mac world, Guy Kawasaki’s latest venture, Alltop, provides a one-stop listing of recent headlines from all the major Mac news sites (including TidBITS, natch). Adam explains how he persuaded iPhoto to format text to his liking when creating his holiday cards, and speculates as to why the iTunes Store is still without DRM-free tracks from three of the four major labels, while Rich Mogull shares his impressions of Macworld Expo as a first-time attendee. Adam also reviews a book called “Bit Literacy” and finds it lacking. We also note two software updates from Apple: QuickTime 7.4.1, which fixes a serious security flaw, and iPhoto 7.1.2, which improves security and makes several other minor improvements.
