iPhone - all it’s cracked up to be?

iPhone smaller

Well, it’s happened at long last: Apple has announced its long-awaited cell-phone/video iPod/internet device, and the buzz has been huge. But is this new-fangled piece of technology the new revolution in communications Steve Jobs has so eloquently claimed?

Here is an interesting article rebutting the iPhone chatter of this past week, in which the point is made, with which I agree, that while the interface is divine, there are many aspects of this device that are all-too down-to-earth. Nevertheless, I think Steve Jobs and pals have made a great step forward, though even if I had the money, I would not be in line at the Cingular store come the iPhone’s ship date this coming June.

    Hi Jeff! Thanks for linking in. I tend to agree that the iPhone is a big step forward in terms of device integration and (hopefully) interface. Of course, we won’t know whether the interface is all it’s cracked up to be until the thing ships.

    It’s all about making people’s lives easier. And if the phone does that in enough ways, it will be a rousing success. Nice website, btw! :-)
