This is ridiculous, the new “iPhone” is supposed to be revolutionary, cutting edge, high tech, blah, blah, blah.
Any tech can tell you that the new iPhone offers nothing that isn’t already out there. The only “cuul” feature worth mentioning is that if you by an iPhone you might join some exclusive cool club like the iPod click. But wait a second, doesn’t most of the civilized planet have an iPod? Why? The iPod is an overpriced little brick.
Few Things I’ve noticed:
1). To his credit, Steve Jobs is a marketing genius but he hasn’t created anything close to truly revolutionary.
2). Apple stock should dive down to $70 by mid year if people have any sense at the lost profite Apple is seeing with iTunes
3). The new iPhone, although hype (because it’s a piece of garbage) just might sucker enough people and keep AAPL inflated, ugh.
So, why am I so adamantly against the new iPhone when I haven’t even touched one?
First, Widscreen iPhone
Uhh, there’s been a number of widscreen devices already created that do the same thing? Palm pioneered it with the Tungsten. Motorola and LG also have “functioning” devices that have been out for close to a year.
Second, Revolutionary iPhone
Nope, not really, not a chance, the iPhone doesn’t do anything a phone hasn’t already done. To be revolutionary it has to have something new, something really remarkable, does it?
Third, Breakthrough Internet Device
How is it a breakthrough? It accesses and organizes the internet, so what? Hundreds if not thousands of devices do this, and do it very well.
Fourth, High Technology
Now this is really a stretch. I think they just wanted to add a fourth point so the key marketing points were even. Why do we need to know this? Um, yes, it’s “high” technology, not “low” technology, thanks Apple.
Aaahh, I can see the Apple marketing machine revving it’s engines… “Screw the product, we’ll have Steve Jobs give a 2 hour presentation hyping a phone with 4 or 5 buttons. It has to work, everyone loves him…”
Good luck using the device if your attention isn’t completely on the iPhone. The device works off some sort of touch screen, there ARE NO BUTTONS, and just like their early iPod’s this DOES NOT work. Maybe they’ll get closer on their 4th and 5th generation models after everyone has already bought the cuul first generation.
Blackberry KNOWS this, that’s why they’ve redesigned the quirky keyboard.
Anyway, enough ripping on Apple, it’s so easy.
