iPhone. It does everything except bake cookies. And they’re probably working on that. But what practical use could I find for it? If I buy an iPhone what other object that currently occupies space in my house/pocket/purse/car/etc. can I get rid of? I get it – it does
Can I use it to write documents? Keep track of my finances? Record cassette tapes and digitize them? Can I have it record programs from my TiVo? Or is it just another gadget someone put together so that I have more to do and less time to myself to focus on that which is important to me?
I get the feeling that the iPhone is just another iProduct being created on the (highly successful) tails of the iPod and geared to all the kids that want/need (how sad is it that some kids really do need these things to feel good about themselves) the latest iProduct from Mac to feel good. When they develop a phone that can do more than make a call well, then I will consider dropping one of my household appliances to replace it with the new phone. Until then, there’s no need.
