iPhone: Frickin’ Awesome

I’ve had the chance to spend a bit more time with the iPhone now, and I’m ready to give my (unsurprising) verdict. Entered entirely from the phone itself, no less. This thing is amazing.

I honestly don’t know what Walt Mossberg was worried about when he initially had problems with the keyboard. I’m not even looking at the text as I type. As I plow ahead, iPhone just corrects my mistakes and moves on. It’s fantastic! Then again, Walt did eventually admit the keyboard was a non-issue. I honestly think it’s better than a non-issue, but, whatever. I’ve tapped out brief text snippets on my Motorola RAZR, but after this blog entry, I’m never looking back. The iPhone makes traditional cell keypads feel like a practical joke.

I could easily go on and on about this, but I’ll just cut to the chase: the iPhone will not only change the mobile communications industry forever, but in the long term, it will change what we expect from and how we interact with technology itself on a fundamental level.

    I’m so happy that Apple made such a revolutionary product for you to enjoy. Especially since Apple has paid for you to have it! 🙂

    So when is Apple going to make it so the rest of the public can afford it?

    According to the sales figures, they already have.

    “From each according to his abilities, to each according to their desires.”

    Isn’t that the standard for business…and government.

    Yeah, that’ll work.

    Not yet.

    Buying something because you can afford it and buying something because it’s the newest and coolest toy on the market are two entirely different things.

    Now that’s an entirely different topic and premise, with which I wholly agree.
