A Geek Note

If you are trying to impress someone with the fact that you are e-mailing from an iPhone, it might help if the ISP you were using wasn’t AOL. Having to use AT&T and AOL are pretty much a deal killer for me, even if I thought I needed the capabilities of iPhone.

It’s the lack of Bluetooth DUN or PAN that is the deal killer for me. That little cell phone screen is neat and all, but sometimes I need the Internet somewhere in the boondocks to look at something that simply isn’t doable with a cell phone screen. With my Sprint smartphone I just hit the picture of the phone on my laptop, it fires up Bluetooth to my phone, and I’m on the Internet shortly thereafter to look up what I need to look up in a more easy fashion than can be done on a 280×280 pixel screen. With the iPhone… eh. It’s pretty, but it doesn’t do what I need.

To be honest, bifocals make it worthless for me. The owner of this particular phone is going to lose it in about a month unless a leash is added.

It gets in your blood, I guess. If it isn’t lost it will join the Betamax VCR in his storage shed.

when it takes voice commands and projects a nice high-resolution hologram at least the size of my two 21″ flatscreen monitors, i’ll think aobut it. till then it’s just cute.

It’s an expensive toy that might be useful at some point, but first they need voice transcription.
