I'm not generally someone who's at the forefront of cutting edge technology. It usually takes me a while to adopt the latest and greatest whatever gizmo that's out there. For example, I still haven't bought an iPod (I'm borrowing an earlier model from my sister, though a new one for me is right down the road), I don't upgrade my cell phone every nine to 12 months, and I haven't bought new stereo equipment in probably 15 years. I'll admit: I'm totally unhip that way.
That said, though, I went to the Apple Store last night with a friend who is looking to buy a new laptop and while she and her husband were talking to the Mac-o-phile sales dude, I was playing with the new Apple iPhone.
All I can say is, I want one of these! It is so much cooler in real time than I ever thought possible!
So, I think I might table my future purchase of an iPod, wait for the next release of the iPhone--give 'em time to work out the bugs on this first generation model, up the gigs, lower the call plan price--and go from there! It's one sweet piece o' technology!
