Over Christmas, Santa followed me from house to house giving me some money here and there. I rolled it up, tossed in a bit of my own, and ended up having enough to get the phone. I’ve been pondering it since Christmas. I was finally sold, after the Steve Jobs keynote where he talked about the new GPS type feature.
So I’ve only had about 5 hours to play with the iPhone but I can already say that I’m in love. Best gadget I’ve ever played with. It’s truly awesome! I’ll give more details on what I love, really like, like, and dig later.
Noah, my 5 year old, had an interesting reason for liking my iPhone. He said, “Daddy, I like it because it has an Apple on it.” I probably shouldn’t capitalize Apple because Noah is more of a fan of apples (the fruit), but either way, he thought my phone with an Apple on it was cool.
This isn’t a review, and I do love the phone, but I have one thing that has me fairly mad. Why the HECK does the iPhone have a non-standard headphone jack??? WTH??? I just got a brand new pair of Shure headphones and they don’t work. You’re telling me I gotta use the crappy Apple earbuds? No way. I’m sure I’ll Google and find some sort of a jack connector that solves the problem… but really…. why the different jack? 🙁
