PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have recently been in the market for a new smartphone. The iPhone looks like some nice hardware and I'm already an AT&T customer, but after Apple's trend of pulling Apps from iTunes lately I'm just not buying. Apple has proven to me that I don't want to live in a closed ecosystem. It made me realize what my real issue with Apple is: their business practices.

I just got my iPhone 3 days ago and am having a blast. Just make sure you're punishing Apple more than you're punishing yourself by not having one.

I'd say for now the high demand is overwhelming your message. Even after 3 weeks of being available I still had to wait in a line that I'd estimate at 300 people deep in Nashville, TN. It took me a total of about 2.5 hours before I was out the door with my iPhone 3G. I'd say I was somewhere between the 75-100th person in line as I arrived 40 minutes before the store opened.

Trillions of flies eat shit, but that doesn't make it Haute cuisine.

My apologies if I didn't fail to be not uncordial.

That has to be one of the best (if repulsive) ways of stating that large numbers of adopters doesn't make something 'right' or the best. Brilliant!
