eye phone

On Tuesday our favorite company whose name begins with Apple announced the debut of their highly anticpated iPhone, a "trademarked" name which has since come under fire in a lawsuit filed by Cisco yesterday... but I digress.

So the iPhone. Say what you want about Apple, Macs, and such, but this is one heck of a beautiful product they have created. It's an iPod, a cell-phone, and internet communication device all in one. It's widescreen. It's wireless. It's thin. It's about as small as you could make it with all of the things it is capable of. A modified version of OS X is actually built into the thing. It automatically shifts from portrait to landscape mode based on the way you hold it. It automatically shuts off the buttons when you hold it to your ear so you don't accidently hit a key while you're talking to someone. It's all touch-screen... I'm pretty sure there is only one actual "button" on the whole thing. It's web-capable like no other phone before it. It will change the landscape of music devices, cell phones, and PDAs from this day forward.

A $600 price tag and two-year Cingular Wireless contract aside, you gotta just admire the sheer genius of it. Spend some time on the website (also one of the most beautiful websites I've ever seen) and check this thing out - if you're a fan of iPods and electronic gadgets, the iPhone will blow your mind. Seriously.

Today you should listen to...
La Rocca "Goodnight"
(while a little disjointed, this is such a good album... hard to choose one song)

umm... i want one.

but i'm guessing it won't be too long before the $600 price tag sounds crazy... i think i'll wait until then.

Well you're quite the salesman... Although, since I'm broke, I won't be buying it anytime soon.
