Wet and Wild: The iPhone is Genius [Part 7]
Okay, I’m scratching the surface of the iPhone, but am still giddy about its utility in day-to-day life. I see little reason to plug into a hotel’s Wi-Fi network if they charge for it when I can power up the iPhone and handle all basic tasks. So, a big recommendation from me for this “Blackberry killer.” Now, it’s a matter of sitting back and waiting to see how fast Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, and all the rest play catch up. Of course, I don’t ever expect legions of developers to flock to their computers to develop applications for those devices, such as is the case for the Application Store at Apple. I do expect Apple to do what they have done with the iPod, and continue to put daylight between their iPhone and their competition.
Enough of this madness. It’s time for my masochistic physical therapist to bend, spindle and mutilate me with a gloomy smirk on her face. That’s okay, I’ll tuck away a few e-mails while laying on the massage table. Thumbs up for the iPhone, just don’t expect me to be waiting in any lines from this point out.
