So, You Want One of Them iPhone Thingies?

I don't know if you noticed, but there was a frenzy yesterday. A frenzy over a new product.

Folks from all around the nation lined up, camped out, waited sometimes patiently for a chance to spend a good deal of money on a shiny new tech-toy.

Was it worth it? Time will tell.

I do understand the desire for an iPhone. It's smaller. Faster. Shinier. Packs lots of other products into little space.

But do we really need it? We already have tools that serve the functions found in the iPhone. We just don't have them all in one small place.

The iPhone may be like the iPod. Eventually, we may all have one. But I think I will wait for a bit. I don't need to spend that much money for functionality that I already have. And I'm put off by the fact that the iPhone only works with ATT; their monthly plans for the use of the thing seem pretty steep.

I can wait.

GOLLY I'd rather stick a pencil in my eye than get one. Granted, I adore my Ipod. Really and truly. But, what happens if the Iphone breaks? Your cell AND Ipod are dead. D-E-D dead.

I can wait, too.

Not me. I really want one. I have never been filled with such consumer lust.

I'm going to wait, but its a nice piece of tech.

I think 20GB versions will be out by this time next year, and it will be cheaper then.

Oh, and this thing won't retire my nano. I won't be taking an iPhone out for jogs and bike rides..
