I am the Anti neo-luddite. I LOVE TECH and gadgets! I have thought a lot about the iphone...

the main draw I like about the new roll out, it supports corporate email. I like the interface of the iphone, and have since day 1. BUT, this is the EXACT reason I did not rush out and spend $600 on the first gen iphone. Now, basically the SAME phone, slimmer desig, and 1/2 the price?!? As for the gig factor, really, I do not need 18, or 16, or whatever...I have always had a 2 gig card and can store what ever I needed no issues, and when done/tired of it, change it. These new models seem to fit my needs(and wants)so perfectly, i can't help but wat to jump on the band wagon.

The ability to support corp. email, the slick user interface, and the media playing abilities might just make me ditch my Blackberry curve and join the dark side. I am really thinking about it cause dang, that thing is COOL!

You can't separate me from my Blackberry Titanium Curve!! Or DW from her Blackberry Red Curve! Maybe if the iPhone comes way down in price and they give it a removable battery (or have they fixed that in the new one?) I might consider it. That 16gb is pretty alluring though, have to admit.

Yeah it is really fun being about to DC anywhere I go. Makes waiting rooms and things like that much easier to deal with.

Soooo true. I have been using Macs since the 80's. It's all I know! One part time job I had last year used PC's and I hated it!

I just bought my next computer, its a Dell, love it! No problems so far and I am looking forward to testing out the HD features as well as Blu-ray features on it.
Love the storage, too, dual 320gb HDD's. The SoundBlaster SurroundSound Dolby Digital system is awesome coming over the speakers on the laptop alone, but when hooked up to the home entertainment system it rocks!
I have already been told to turn it down!! LOL. And it is great for hooking into the home theater to play Netflix Instant movies over the TV and theater speakers. Good thing it came with Bluetooth stereo headphones!
Another thing I like is that they cleared up the networking system so now all of our computers are linked correctly on the home network, makes sharing pictures, movies, and music a breeze now.
And it works perfectly with my Blackberry Curve, just transfered 2gb of music and 2 movies to my phone! Sweet....

It is an entertainment device not a business device. Anyone getting it for business use will probably be disapponted. If you want to surf the Internet and use email and listen to tunes wherever you are then the iPhone is the best.

I typed this on my iPhone while eating my lunch outside.
aww you suck.. wait..ok no i mean im jealous is a better way of putting it..

EDIT..

you dont suck, im just jealous is all but i would rather have a 4 wheeler..
