I like it! Guess who is the Mac support guy at my office now? Me! Can you believe it? I have about 500 of them to take care of. It's a good thing I like a new challenge!

Blessings!

Not to worry: the iPhone will replace these items on your bike:
  • cell phone (of course)
  • MP3 player
  • PDA
  • AM/FM/WX radio
  • XM/Sirius radio
  • cassette tape player
  • CD player
  • CD changer
and probably the GPS, leaving lots of room for more new stuff!

Who is Apple trying to fool?

The thing's friggin huge! Remember the Newton?

What, no camera?

All I can say is B.F.D.. All I want a phone to do is make and receive calls, and rarely at that.

We were spun off, now called Idearc Media Corp. Our graphic artists have been using Macs for many years for yellow page ads. I even supported them occasionally when I started there ten years ago. I recently survived yet another big lay-off, too. I love OSX more and more all the time!

Blessings!

I am betting this is just a Cisco/Apple ploy to get press hype.
