Come on backtomac, I said be honest...

I am being honest. Are you? Do you really have a position were you are able to ignore clients or have a band of minions who deal with such menial tasks for you?

I'm most excited about having integrated iCal to help me get things done rather than having 8 million post-it's in my pocket. Plus of course it would be nice to have my favorite music at my fingertips plus a phone in just one device. I still have the same phone I started with 4 years ago! I need a new one, but am definately waiting for the iPhone.

While you can't delete them, you can edit those double posts, in the lower right corner of your posts so at least they don't all say the same thing.

...but, like dear 'ol Dad used to say "if they want blue, sell 'em blue" - Go Apple!


This is more the result of people who let the technology control them rather than remain in control of the technology and use it as a tool.

I have a cell phone, but there are plenty of times when I have it set to silent or left in my car. For instance if I am on a date or something, I will not answer. The same thing with the land line phone on my desk at work, if I am having a meeting with someone, I set the phone to do not disturb.

I believe that there is a way to live with the technology without it controlling you. I also believe that you can get along without it. Many places where I rock climb have no service and I don't miss it one bit.

That was the first time I've ever seen that show and the last. I suppose they think they're cool but it just comes off as ignorant and unprofessional. It was painful to watch.

The cellphone is dead! Long live the iPhone!!

That doesn't make sense. What about the i(nternet)Pod? I think it makes more sense to interpret the "i" as a personal device or utility, not as an internet product. I think it's less aggravating than using "my".

To be an internet phone, first you have to have a good mesh of open access points, which do not exist on nearly the same scale as the phone networks. You are lucky if an access point has a few tens of meters of range, the cellular network has a range of several kilometers from the towers. WiMax might make a VOIP mobile phone useful, but it would take many years before it catches on like that because the towers need to be erected.

I am pretty sure that Microsoft has stated that they will be making a Zune phone, and I expect that they would be incompatible with their Windows Mobile phones.

Double points if phone functionality can borrow battery from multimedia.

I too think it does make more sense to soft-limit the music playback. It is possible to make long-running phones, I don't even shut my phone off and it's been getting 1+ week battery life for a few years now, though the battery is fading now. Even if that means I have to charge twice a week, the extra power consumption of a flash audio player is not a problem for me.

Yes, they will release it 1 year after the iPhone, it will have all the features*** of the iPhone with an inferior UI and it will be twice as heavy, but still not compatible with Vista. It will also allow you to 'squirt' your 'stuff' on all of your friends.

***We decided not to implement Voice in the initial version of the ZunePhone because we wanted to focus on the music and community features, Voice will be available in about a year via a downloadable software update. In the meantime, have fun 'squirting' your pictures around.

But WiMax smells like a hit and I believe it will go (almost perhaps) mainstream in 2007, and will likely be definitly mainstream in 2008 and beyond.

Testing isn't the same as catching on. I think it's been in public testing for a year now in some places. I'll give it credence when coverage of much of a state is completed. I don't think Apple would bother with something like this except as a secondary radio.

I was only responding to what you wrote. You said "WiMax is already catching on" before you noted it was in testing.

That JUST happened to my 60GB iPod Photo. I was just riding in my car and it quit, gave me the sad iPod face.

It was doing the sad face for 4 days until I could find time to take it to the Apple Store. I swear the girl behind the Genius Bar had the proverbial "magic touch" because as soon as she touched it it turned on fine and played music and all that good stuff iPods are supposed to do. And I was all like, "I swear it was sad just a minute ago!"

Anyway, it's better now, which is good since I didn't get Apple Care for it (stupid). But it was strange. It happened just after I upgraded to iTunes 7, which made me a bit suspicious. I hope it works out for you, though.

GIVE ME A TREO KILLER!!!!

Honest, yes.

I am actually gainfully employed - even though you wouldn't know it from the "lunch hours" I waste on AI. And, yes I do own a cell phone, as do all the people in my business.

Ignore clients, no.

I am in the client business...but I also know that unless you enforce your own perimeter, your clients, your boss and your business will eat you alive. It is very often better that you not be found - even though you could have easily taken a call. As a society, we need to relearn to make our own decisions.

Band of minions, well.......
Damn maybe you caught me.

OK, so maybe we can agree that cell phones are an evil necessity for most and that it sometimes is beneficial to turn them off and let voice mail take the call.

That is well put, and I couldn't agree more. There are places and time that you can't devote you full attention to a client, and 9 times out of 10 it's best to let them roll to VM and call back when you can.

The report says: "According to Rose, the extremely compact device will work with both CDMA and GSM networks......."

Isn't this HUGE, if true? Are there many handsets out there that currently offer such functionality?

T-mobile... heh, heh.

But seriously, Rose should get his ass beat by this insider trusting him with Apple's proprietary information, and he should get sued by Apple (if this is at all true).

The new razor is available on Sprint PCS and Verizon (CDMA). It is also available on Cingular (GSM) I think... I may be wrong...\

An evil necessity for some, not most. Kids texting each other at the dinner table, sluts discussing their sex life in the checkout line at the grocery store, etc. really isn't considered a necessity.

I doubt there will be a single iPhone that works with all these standards.
More likely there will be seperate GSM, CDMA and PCS versions.

Maybe because the ones sending you text messages weren't using a full keyboard. They don't have to be that big to be usable. My wonderful little Nokia 6820 folds out to a nice little keyboard and the whole thing still fits in my pocket.

Which is why I still have this 3 year old phone. No one has made one the same size with a full keyboard. \
