iPhone - not a single topic here?
 
I can't believe I'm the first to post... No one else has gotten sucked into needing the latest and greatest technology?

It is the coolest thing since sliced bread.

It looks cool, but would you believe...ND doesn't have the service yet to support it.:?? Nothing like perpetuating the myth we're in the covered wagon era here...:teehee:

You know, when I think about what it can do, all I see is $$ for the cost of the extra services.

In November, I traded in my old cell phone for a Fusic, an mp3 player, phone, camera, and camcorder. It was an upgrade for me, but I still won't pay extra for the online services that are available. I'm happy with what I've got (for a change ;) )!

I added it up and have spent less money on different devices to do all the same stuff. I prefer to keep the devices separate. I'd hate to not be able to make a phone call because I drained the battery listening to music.

Maybe if they decide to actually include a changeable battery it might be worth it, but as it is now I'd rather have separate devices.

At a recent bday party for dh's boss, about 8 people got our cameral phones ready when they put a sombrero on the boss to sing him happy birthday. I still think it's a hoot that we whip out our phones to catch that "can't miss it" photo:roflhard:

That's what I say. If my camera breaks at least I still have my phone. Same thing with electric windows. If the car breaks down at least I can wind the windows. :think:...well that doesn't make sense, but you know what I mean :doh:

i can't wait until it starts malfunctioning and has all sorts of technical problems (as first generation apple products are notorious for doing) and watching all the people who spent $600 on a phone cry...

Hehe, my car has manual windows, and the way I look at it, if I drive into a body of water, I'll be able to open the window and get out. I think it's a comforting thought.

As for the iPhones, eh, they're really pretty nifty, but I could and will easily do without.

Very funny video about a lady getting pwned re: buying ipods.

Nooooo... this was my iPhone-free zone! Almost every single blog I read has been all over it for the past month!

Like Vermont, Alaska and the rest of the world, I will not be able to get an iPhone until Apple realizes that limiting the carrier to just AT&T was a bad idea.
