The best camera is the one I have with me. My iPhone is always with me. It wins.

Personally, I love my ultra zoom.

Personally I love my Canon EOS 40D with my F2.8 lenses - but I don't always have it with me. Sure, I can take a technically superior picture with it, but if I don't capture it at all the relative merits of the iPhone vs. my 40D are pretty much irrelevant.

What I find scary is that all the companies in the various industries that are clueless to the point that Apple can pretty much waltz in and take over.

I don't see it as a problem of Apple taking over, but everyone else sucking so bad that Apple can pretty much take over.

And in that context, that there is at least one company out there like Apple pushing the envelope is a great thing for all of us - whether you like them or not, we all benefit.

I disagree to an extent. I have a mid-range point-and-shoot and while it affords more flexibility in shooting, the best pictures I have taken with my iPhone 4 are just as good as the best taken with my Canon. The difference in the quality of my everyday shooting seems insignificant to me compared to the inconvenience of carrying both devices. My Canon gathers dust. So I would argue that we're not a "LONG" way from the time you refer to. We're almost there.

Taken in Colombia two weeks ago in a tropical area near the Cauca River just north of Medellin. Used my iPhone 4, hand held. No editing to file. Have you used the 4 for pictures? It's a giant leap forward from the 3GS.

I don't think cisco is actually killing UMI, they are about to release a second product in that space, targeted at homes/consumer but it will fully integrate with the business systems. This was already announced.
