Lovin' My Shiny New iPhone!

By
Education & Training with WickedWriter.com

 Ok, I wrestled with the decision... but I did it. I broke down and got an iPhone on Friday -- despite the lines and the road-trip required to pick one up. (Maysville, over an hour away, was one of the two locations in KY that didn't sell out in the first hour -- so I made the trip!)

I now have one shiny, new 8 gig baby and after a weekend with it I must say... I LOVE IT!

Before this, I was carrying an old cell phone (because I flat refused to buy a new one until the iPhone came out), a 60 gig video iPod, my digital camera and all the "accessories" to keep all those things charged and working.

I must admit, my purse is quite a bit lighter, more organized and... well, dang it... my phone is amazing! I'll probably not carry my Tablet PC nearly as often as I have been with this little tech pet in my pocket (or purse).

I realize that Apple wasn't (supposedly) going after the business market, but this is one cool little business tool, IMHO. I think it will be especially appealing to real estate agents. Over the next few days, I'll be blogging about my finds over on my "other" blog: WickedBlog.com.

I must say that the mapping with the satellite overlay is much easier to use and renders incredibly well on the little thing. The viewable area is over twice the size of my video iPod for movies/videos. And the image you see to the left is one I took of my daughter Saturday morning, using the iPhone camera. Not bad, eh? I'm working on business apps now -- web-based and sync options. And while I'm typing this, I'm listening to my favorite playlist. It's all pretty sweet, I must say.

Jealous, aren'tcha? :)

Ronnie - Yeah, allow me the luxury of rubbing in while I'm paying off the bill, ok? :D

Leo - I'm SURE they will have a second generation soon -- simply because the thing is so cool (and is, IMHO, the best thing ever created by Apple). I don't find the features to be slow (at least compared to my Treos) but I would always like faster! And... a bigger hard drive would be fantastic. I'm afraid I'll really miss the space on my 60 gig iPod soon!

I am jealous, but I'm not falling this time.  My dad bought the "first" Macintosh, I bought the first Imac Dome shape (Salad Bowl) macs, and the first MacBook with the Intel Chip.  The first mac was great, but quickly outdated the whole use one disk to start up, another to run the program.  The Dome shaped iMac was quickly replaced with the flat panel version, and the MacBook has had numerous issues with shutting down and falling asleep and me having to hard restart.  All the bugs have been worked out, but a year of headaches with the thing I am finally happy with it.  And I STILL haven't bought the darn Windows software I got the darn thing for also!  So I will admire your iPhone from afar, but I am waiting for the 60 gig with a little better ear set :)

Miguel - *Dancing* Yeah, well, we can't all be the "technology broker" like you up in New York -- some of us have to be the consultant with the most cool toys -- even down here in little ol' Kentucky.

My hubby came in my office last night (I had the iPhone dock plugged into my speakers with a thumpin' bass box) and he said, "Oh, WOW, is that your PHONE?!?!" And just for a moment, my techno-phobe husband was jealous. I saw it! 

You SAY you don't want one... but I know you do. *gloats at Miguel tapping foot to Finger Eleven album on iPhone*

Hey Miguel,

I did not think I wanted one either until I played with it.  It is a very slick piece of design work.  Once you start to interact with it and discover the way they implemented the interface it will be hard to resist. 

I want one now but alas, Angela will have the cool phone as I am stuck with Verizon for a bit.
