    I like a mobile phone/walkie talkie/sms/mms/calculator/spell checker/games/tv/dvd/ignition to car/dial-a-nuke/fridge.

    I mean what would Jack Bauer do without it?

    At least (with the exception of Casino Royale) the Bonds movies are suddenly more realistic.

    Funny side note. In 2001, my best friend and I had an argument about this. I told him phones would be able to play music and take pictures soon, he said it was at least ten years away. I said it would be here in five or a little less. The early ones hit five years on the dot.

    The good thing about technology advancing so quickly is that a device like an iPhone will be like $5000 to purchase but in two years time when something more advanced comes out you will get an iPhone for ALOT cheaper and it isn't all that different.

    Same goes for stuff like TVs, DVDs, Projectors etc.

    I got the feeling, if America is ever on the brink of getting pwned by Japs or Chinese, we might have to nuke'em, bc were so far behind, so actually, wed wipe out the technology we didnt already have, and hopefully develop it ourselves

    as for phones, I have the EnV, from Verizon, its my baby

    This iPhone is a clever scheme...since it runs on Mac OS, it introduces Windows users to the system...I'm sure that Apple is counting on a percentage of users to jump platforms.

    The Mac Mini was supposed to do that also...worked on me!

    ipod got me to use itunes, eventually. They are gaining ground. And they are gaining ground where they are skilled. Ultimately, they could win. When you think on an evolutionary level, the only reason humans even evolved was because they wanted to adorn their caves with art, which led to intelligence, and apple is all about art. They are the visual. They ultimately have control if microsoft doesn't adapt. Tools will only take you so far. Art and beauty will always win.

    Hell no.

    However, I have some inside info. Apple makes awesome products, but they are vicious brutes to work for. And I may be dealing with that soon as a Mac tech.
