iPhone: Poor Compatibility with Web Apps
Aw, shit! So much for my dreams…
For instance, in the Web 2.0-based office suite iZoHo, you can’t actually enter or edit any text, as the iPhone doesn’t trigger its virtual keyboard when users click in a WYSIWYG Editor control. We ran into the same problem with Google Docs and Google Spreadsheet, though those sites aren’t designed for the iPhone. The new, flashier AJAX-based Yahoo! Mail interface also doesn’t work, though the old-school Yahoo! Mail page does.
The Web 2.0-based IM client Meebo.com runs into another problem: the iPhone seems to send a different “return” key code than desktop browsers. The result: while Meebo.com loads, you can’t send any IMs.

A lady brings $16,000 to an AT&T store, buys a kid’s spot in line for $800 and then tries to buy the entire stock of iPhones in the store. Hilarity ensues.
— I think he might be the only actual person who was paid cash to be on line — and he got it by coincidence. I think the hype of people being paid to stand on line was just that: hype. I’m still in awe of how fast the Apple Store Soho processed those 1,000 people on line. Wow.
The missing iPhone applications
Fugly stickers to deface the iPhone. Paris Hilton would use this shit.

As for people complaining, I used to have a MDA from TMobile and it took for a while just to load IE and Google something. The iPhone passes a lot of the “problems” with mobile browsing but making it more efficent. I can have multiple webpages open at once, I have quick access to Google and keys like .com (although I suggest other keys like .html and www.). The Google Maps is built in so I do not even need to open safari, and I can also save locations which is great for quick browsing.

— well, it’s slow. It looks like in some cases it’s like the Nokia 770 with WiFi! However, this is EDGE, so I could get the Net everywhere.
Ready, Set, Launch!
