So... Yeah. I admit it, I'm weak.

I've wanted an iPhone for months now, so
I caved and bought one this afternoon. I pity the suckers who lined up yesterday though, as it was really easy to get one, though they were flying off the shelves in SF I was in and out in a couple of minutes. Activation went smoothly and the newsr version of EDGE that AT&T rolled out Friday is almost as fast as WiFi - so all that hot air that was written about it being slow is just that - bunk.

Oh, and I'm typing this on the iPhone right now... in LJ, as I would normally.

So very pretty, and really nice to use... top marks.

so you wouldn't agree with this list then?

Seriously, glad you got it if it's something that makes you smile! :)
But that list had me shaking my head.

No mostly because that guy seems to:

a) be looking for a laptop with the form factor of the iPhone
b) have never used a mac before
c) have never use a modern cell phone before

Also I accept some people may have slow net access over EDGE, but mine is really damn fast. YMMV I guess. It probably depends on the networks equipment where you live.

I could do a point by point rebuttal but that would serve no real purpose. Suffice to say that I wanted a phone, and got an awesome one, he obviously wanted something akin to a dell laptop crossed with a PSP... and unsurprisingly didn't get it.

I've found it nothing but a joy to work with, and really that's Apples big hit - their products all create passion. Love it or hate it, but they don't try to please everyone and produce crap like the Blackberry (always hated that device)
