Did I mention I waited in line 8 hours to get an iphone? I was one of the people who had an activation problem (I was trying to port a number from Skype), but John and I got it working, the phone totally lived up to the hype. It’s fabulous. It takes pictures that look like this:
I’m not all that excited about the gadgetness of it, though that’s fun. And really, it was time for me to get a new phone, ipod, and pda, so financially it made sense for me. What I am really excited about is the internet in my pocket. That is the revolutionary aspect of it all for me. Even if you hate the phrase, that’s what’s game changing about this device.
During my 8 hours wait, I was even quoted in the local paper about the information access angle: “Lauren Pressley, a librarian at Wake Forest University, said she was looking forward to trying out the iPhone, especially its ability to access the Internet. ‘There’s potential for a real shift in how people find their information,’ she said. ‘Plus, it also looks fun.’”
So, for now, I’m trying to hack my GTD system into the iphone, but it’s totally worth it to have access to the internet any time, from (almost) any place.
