Don't open it! Steve Jobs will disease your mind!

Oh wait, I have a couple of iPods. I guess you're okay.

Kim said...

Wouldn't that be "most trivial?" You know as in trivial, more trivial, most trivial?

Stan McCullars said...

I hope it doesn't have a worm in it.

Kim:

Pettiest. Comment. Ever.

:^P

April said...

Kim, don't feel bad. I was going to comment the same thing.

So I guess that means pettiness is widespread.

DJP said...

tsk

Rabbit said...

Everybody knows it should be "Most petty. Comment. Ever." @@

DJP said...

Weirdest. Readers. Ever.







(And I love 'em)

I woulda write:

Mostest. Trivialest. Post... EVAR!!

...except that I'm jealous now. Wah!

DJP said...

See now, that's the spirit.

Jay said...

Big deal...ho hum...who cares?

:)


(After 5 minutes with one I would very much like to trade my Blackberry for an iPhone).

Daniel said...

I ordered the 32 GB Black 3G-S, it has yet to arrive, so I can appreciate the waiting...

Up in Canada we can do the whole tethering thing without having to jailbreak it too.

DJP said...

Yep; I read in more than one place that there was a lot of derisive laughter at the convention, as they displayed all the companies that supported the glorious new features... er... except AT&T....

Daniel said...

Perhaps AT&T will come around? I am already considering buying the SDK and writing a few apps.

Sir Aaron said...

There was derisive laughter at AT&T, but in AT&T's defense a major reason why their network is hampered is because of the Iphone. They subsidize the cost of the Iphone to get people on contracts, so initially they took a big hit (i.e. you pay $299 for the 32GB phone and not $700 because AT&T subsidizes it). Also, the Iphone uses more bandwith than any other phone because of the phone itself and because Iphone users tend to use a lot more bandwith intensive applications. I expect that by the end of this year, you'll hear a lot fewer complaints.

So now Dan, we can trade text and talk about our favorite apps! I already have a few I like.

Sir Aaron said...

Besides, I have 3G wireless card for my laptop and it's so dialup.

Rachael Starke said...

Prepare to be assimilated.

Sent from my iPhone.

Sir Aaron said...

Rachael did you get a text plan?

Rachael Starke said...

Yes, although I don't use it much yet. Not sure of the cost -my brilliant husband is in charge of those details.

I have to say, given that our house has been totally without dsl since Friday when the SBC phone guy clipped the wrong wire, it's been a lifesaver. I never would have been able to say informed about the fate of Michael Jackson's zoo animals without it.

Sir Aaron said...

Rachael:

When you do start using text, you'll find that you use it more than the phone. It is so much easier to check and reply to than voicemail. My wife and I text a lot to each other now, which is great.

I'm looking over calendar features now. MobileMe allows you to share calendars, which would be handy. I'm trying to see if I can find a cheaper alternative...preferably google based.

CR said...

I did succumb and ended buying one when it came out. I love the phone.

DJP said...

Soon, DV, I shall briefly join the Cool Kids.

Daniel said...

If cool is measured in hours spent agonizing over which accessories to buy (the xtand looks worth it), then I am cool.

DJP said...

There are supposed to be plenty of sweet free ones. No?

Daniel said...

A lot of free apps, but I haven't heard of any free accesories.

Sir Aaron said...

Dan,

There are a dizzing number of apps. Many are free, but many also cost $.99 up to $10 (more than that for some really hard core apps).

MobileMe costs $99 a year. It includes the remote find and remote wipe features. The other features that MobileMe includes seemingly can be provided by other apps with a one time charge. I'm not certain remote find or remote wipe are worth $99 a year.

DJP said...

Oh doy, Daniel. Sorry. I read you like I hate people reading my posts. I apologize.

Yeah, I got a little rubbery holder, which I'll probably eventually upgrade.

Sir Aaron said...

CR,

It was funny...my wife and I both got one. I couldn't get her to put hers down.

Did you all pick up the car charger, case, and 2 year support for $100?

CR said...

DJP - What does DV stand for again?

Sir Aaron - I pretty much went all out. I got a car charger, FM transmitter, screen protectant, etc. etc. etc. and three year total replacement warranty. I bought mine from Best Buy.

DJP said...

Abbreviation of Deo volente Latin for "God willing."

Daniel said...

the sudden silence leads me to think the package has arrived...?
