Obligatory iphone post

January 11, 2007

Iphone is obviously very cool, but I can't help but be a bit disappointed. I wanted to see Apple make a vote for simplicity. I want to see a small phone that is very good at making phone calls.    (Q6A)

While complaining about this with Eric he reminded me of the evolution of the ipod: They went in two directions. They became more featured (pictures, video) in some models but they also became smaller and simpler in some other models (mini, shuffle, nano, shuffle gen 2).    (Q6B)

I can't wait for the shuffle version of the iphone. The barest essentials in the smallest form packaged in that Apple spit and polish.    (Q6C)

but.... but... but.... but such a phone wouldn't even play 3d-halographic music videos, or.... or... or... have quadraphonic stereo satellite radio..... or.... be capable of updating your blog on the fly without your intervention!!    (Q6D)

Why would you want such a thing? What's the point?    (Q6E)

Yes, but, how much Apple goodness can they put in something that's tiny and just makes calls?    (Q6G)

This phone is chock full of Apple.    (Q6H)

I do eagerly await v2.    (Q6I)

Hola, Mr. Dent. I am now two children wiser, and was pleased to come across your blog/wiki/doohickey. I am, however, distressed that you got to go to Antarctica, and I didn't. Blech.    (Q6J)

BFF,    (Q6K)
