Over Christmas, Santa followed me from house to house giving me some money here and there.Â I rolled it up, tossed in a bit of my own, and ended up having enough to get the phone.Â I’ve been pondering it since Christmas.Â 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.Â Best gadget I’ve ever played with.Â It’s truly awesome!Â 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.Â He said, “Daddy, I like it because it has an Apple on it.”Â 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.Â Why the HECK does the iPhone have a non-standard headphone jack???Â WTH???Â I just got a brand new pair of Shure headphones and they don’t work.Â You’re telling me I gotta use the crappy Apple earbuds?Â No way.Â I’m sure I’ll Google and find some sort of a jack connector that solves the problem…Â but really….Â why the different jack?Â 🙁

I hate the jack too, and there’s no reason from them to have done that.
That being said either of these options work well (depending on if you care about the mic part)
Thanks for the links Mark… I’m guessing I’ll pick up the Belkin jack because I think I’ll stick with my bluetooth headset for phone.
Erik’s phone rocks. Hey slacker shoot me an email so I can link you in on linkedin.
It is a standard jack. It’s just recessed. Still sucks though.
