iPhone

Well. Yes, I have been rather quiet for the last couple of months. There is so much to tell you that I don't even want to start... but as I am writing this, I am unlocking my iPhone, and the things that the iPhone community has created in the last days (if not hours) is not only amazing, it makes me proud of my profession. YOU GUYS ROCK (you know who you are).

Last night I installed Installer.app, the BSD subsystem, ssh and a ton of other stuff. It is more fun than you can imagine - to see how fast things move. I have had the Nokia N80 for the last year or so, and to say that I am very disappointed by it is a politically correct statement. I have been waiting to throw if off the Empire State Building ever since I got it (the N80, that is ;-)). I am nearly at that point now (15 more minutes...). I have waited to get any decent information or apps on the Nokia. Not that it would have been usable ... but there simply was nothing happening at all. I still have the same thing that I bought.

I have had my iPhone for three weeks now, and in the urban jungle of NYC (where you spend half of your life in cabs or waiting for a seat in a restaurant) it has become a life saver, even though I only had the default set of applications on it. But now, I can already install dozens of native apps, seamlessly, wireless. Select, touch, done.

And now this: I can now use my iPhone in the USA and in Switzerland. No more N80. Boy are they gonna sell the iPhone. Can we say another million in the next month? You bet.

By the way, if you would like to buy a really nice N80, send me a mail.
