    My father is getting one for my baby sister. My response was "Um, how come I had to be born when he was POOR?"



    Not that I really want an iPhone all that much.

    I'm sorry, but I'm sick and tired of all this hoopla for something I will never afford. It is definitely a product for tech and Mac elitists.



    It's a great innovative device. But it's not for everyone. I want a laptop and even Apple's line of MacBooks are still too much for me right now. But take a look at this...







    The Asus' Eee PC 701. Should be coming out in August in the states. Currently, it's $199.00 over there (China) and if it comes here it'll be a little more. Site says that it will be loaded with Linux. Here, it'll probably be Windows. Linux would be a plus actually. I'd like to give Linux a try anyway.



    This is what I need. A small, portable laptop. Apple? Hello?

    I drove to the hospital when my sister was born. She's in college now.

    So you're between 36 and 100+?



    Re: iPhone. I can't wait to afford one. The only use I have for a laptop is mobile internet and email. The iPhone would make it pocket-sized, and add the ability to make calls from it, play music and have photos. Sign me up in September.

    Why You Don't Want an iPhone -- Yet



    Quote:

    Consider the fate of the original iPod, which was a far less ambitious product. This isn't just yet another small hard drive strapped to a tiny LCD display-- it's Apple's first cell phone ever. Maybe you remember this choice Jobs quote:



    "You keep on innovating, you keep on making better stuff," Jobs said, in response to a question from Williams about why a new iPod might seem outdated as soon as you take it out of the box. Then Jobs offered a bit of advice to consumers: "If you always want the latest and greatest, then you have to buy a new iPod at least once a year."




    If we use history as our guide, we can expect that Apple will introduce a new iPhone within 12 months. It's likely to address the most glaring flaws with the original: it'll probably have 3G, more storage, longer battery life, and so on.



    For Apple users this is a given. But for the iPhone? Wait another year. Let the early adopters waste their money (but hopefully complain about why they feel they were wasting it in the first place). Then Apple will improve the iPhone.

    I'm just wondering why, at his age, he still needs a babysitter.

    According to every early review, the main problems lay in at&t's crusty, sluggish network... which may reflect badly on the iPhone... BUT, there are now people posting online who have said they are today noticing an improvement in the EDGE network speed... stay tuned...

    Or as Jobs always says, "And One More Thing..."

    Geez, if the network problem is really solved... now I'm having second thoughts!
