iPhone Vs. LifeDrive Size

June 30, 2007

Since I haven’t yet paid for more WordPress image storage space, I’m not able to run any of my iDay pictures. There’s one I’ve wanted everyone to see, so I sent it to many people in my email directory and offered sites the pic to post.

Sammy over at Palm Addict has posted the picture. My LifeDrive vs. the iPhone.

Weep, Palm, weep!

Thanks, Sammy!

After fiddling with it for an hour, I know how to work the iPhone better than the Nokia I had for the past 2 years, even though the Nokia has far less capabilities.

Quick iPhone review

Today, I had the misfortune of trying to figure out how to send a text message on someone’s brand-new Samsung phone. Oh. My. God. My eyes nearly melted when I wrestled with the piece of shit.

If you haven’t yet handled an iPhone, you just have no damned idea of how different Apple has made the cellphone. They have made a bigger leap with the iPhone than they made in computers with the original Macintosh.

Microsoft likes to brag about the IQ test they torment potential employees with. Apple has just made that entire company of test-passers look like a bunch of masturbating mentally-retarded autists. Hey, Microsoft, here’s a hint — the iPhone is what we all thought, instinctively, Origami was going to be!

Nokia thinks its premier position in the cellphone industry is impregnable. Hey, Nokia, you showed the world the extent of your tinythinking with those Anti-Internet Tablets. You are gone gone gone. Good riddance!

Palm will never understand what hit it. The Treo is going to be cheep cheep cheep — on ebay. The flood will be such that Palm could build an ark and float on the jillions of Treos put up for sale.

With the iPhone, it’s apparent that Apple began designing it with just two questions in mind throughout: What makes sense? and What feels natural?

YouTube: Doctor Who, The Sound Of Drums, Is Back Up

Clever new title…

Dr Who What The Country Needs,Right Now…Is A Doctor — that’s part one.

This is the user’s index.

Hey, Auntie Beeb! I love ya, but not enough to let you prevent Whovians from having their fix.

Update: Incredibly, this seems to be it as just one complete video! How’d that guy manage that?!

Update: As of July 9, 2007, both links have been subjected to a DMCA takedown.

Update: As of July 10, people are still coming to this post apparently in search of that episode. Read this. Then come back here. Must I draw you a diagram? Isn’t a hint good enough?

YouTube: iPhone Fondle Video

June 30, 2007

OK, here it is: a live fondle video someone did. Too bad it’s rotated 90-degrees(!), but you can at least see how fast things work for real, without cuts in the video.

This vaguely sounds like it was done at the Apple Store Soho…

YouTube: iPhone Speed Typing

June 30, 2007

Damn, this guy is good! A great video showing that someone who is already proficient in thumb-typing won’t have much trouble switching to the iPhone — as long as you also remember to use the word-completion feature!

I’m still hoping someone will do a YouTube vid based on my request.

iPhone Top 10 Apps. Aw, Come On!

June 30, 2007

Already? First, I’m surprised there are ten apps. Really!

Second, this list will probably change weekly!

Listed here because someone linked to my iPhone fondle over there. As FSJ would say: Namaste!

3G Euro iPhone Announcement Monday? No Bloody Way!

June 30, 2007

There is no way in hell I can believe what Engadget, from another source, is passing along — that Apple will announce a European 3G HSDPA-version of the iPhone for Europe on Monday.

Even if, as they state, the phone wouldn’t be available in Europe until January 2008, it’d be suicide for Apple to make such an announcement. American iPhone sales would immediately drop dead. Just as Treo sales dropped dead for Palm after Apple’s original iPhone announcement. Just as Palm PDA sales dropped dead several years ago when the then-head of Palm publicly announced new models were a few months away.

Hell, Steve Jobs is not stupid. He knows what happened to Osborne!
