Good we may be, but happy I am... This device is brilliant!

True! That's how I justify most expensive purchases. Recessions have their upsides...

I did feel like I was living in the Soviet Union... Queuing for a slightly better Phone than the one I already had...  And of which I knew there were so few that I might be queuing in vain... Ok, not quite like queuing for a loaf of bread, but you know what I mean :-)

I think it's rather Calvinism than communism why we (Odin and I) feel a bit repulsed by buying such expensive gadgets.

The problem is that once you use the gadget... You realize exactly how and why it fits perfectly into one's life... The price isn't that much when you realise that it is the device you dreamed about 10 years ago!

True, when I bought my Amiga it was cutting edge, it's the same reason I have a dual quad core Mac Pro.  These devices are the stuff of dreams.

Well, the iPhone is the 21century Amiga...
Making exaggaration an art... :lol:


Well, Like the Amiga in the '80s, the iPhone brings together a lot of different pre-existing technologies into one single platform. It does so at a price and form factor that is convienient and useful for the average user.

It has a focus on multimedia in a market that has been lacking in that area for a long time.

The iPhone is the new Amiga.

Can I open a terminal on an iPhone and type commands it it?  I'd love to be able to ssh into my servers at work!

I agree, the iPhone *is* the 21st C Amiga.

Actually you can, I used to run one on my old iPhone... It was brilliant... Sadly there isn't a terminal app for OS 2.0 yet, but I expect one will come soon... Or even just port one yourself :-)

TBH I thought of my Palm M100 to be miggy-like back in 1998 (or something). Inventive, versatile and very easy to use.

BAA! HOOEY!
The I phone is just another fancy fad that will be gone in a years or so. God, I can't believe all the MAC cronies with their look at the shiny rock routine. There are much better phones on the market people, wake up and smell reality!

I wouldn't be using the iPhone if it wasn't a great product. I've tried the alternatives and they don't come close. Using a good product made by Apple has nothing to do with being a "MAC [sic] crony".

Hey, I used the iphone, and I got rid of it within the first week I had it. I have an older Treo 680, that (other than the OS crashes every once and a while) I would recommend any day over the iPhone- besides the palm OS has hundreds of thousands of free apps, it can do everything and more better than the iPhone and its 2 years older. The hype has snowballed so out of control, its too funny. If Steve packaged up his feces in a nice shiny metal acrylic case, and called it the iCrap, it would sell.

8-)

Does this new iPhone have a good camera and is it able to capture and play DVD-Like video? Can you Bluetooth files to your mates with it?
