Does anyone have an iPhone? If so, what are your thoughts?
I was talking with my father (the biggest Apple nerd in the Universe) the other day about how much I hate my Blackberry – I am a smart girl, but I have yet to master the QWERTY keyboard. He suggested that I sell my iMac and Macbook and upgrade to a new desktop and buy the phone. This is my father’s MO – chemistry and Macs are his passion, and he upgrades his computer at least once a year. I know, I don’t understand it either, but hey….everyone has their thing.
When the iPhone came out, I thought it was great, but I wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. I never buy any first-generation Apple products. I’ve always had Macs, and I always will. I don’t even really know how to use a PC. I am somewhat reluctant to give up my laptop, because I love the convenience. But, I rarely use it. It’s great to have while traveling and it’s great to hook up to our sound system when we have parties. But, I can’ really use it for anything besides the Internet, music and word processing.
I currently have a 20″ iMac at home and my father thinks I should upgrade to a 24″. It would be nice, because I do a lot of work on CS at home. But it goes without saying that I will not purchase anything that exceeds what I get for my other two computers. Luckily, I have a dad who’s a master at selling them.
And, I lost my iPod and it would be nice to have something that plays music.
Also, an iPhone Nano is geared up to be released in the summer. But, again, I like to avoid first generation models. The great thing about it is that it will not be Internet-capable. Which is fine because I don’t use my phone to get on the web.
What are your thoughts? I’ve played with the iPhone and it seems intuitive, as Apple products tend to be.
All opinions welcome! I must make decisions by committee!
