I know it has been 2 months since I posted about dreaming of the iPhone. In that post I stated that I wasn’t even intrigued by them but in the last sentence I stated “I can’t wait until the price comes down so I can buy one.
Well the price did come down when Apple started selling refurbished version for $100 less. This $100 was the tipping point for me so I took my newly acquired xBox 360 (2 weeks old) and went and got a 4GB iPhone. The only thing is that I did not get the refurb – I got a new one.
If you thought that is crazy the second day I had it my wife wanted to see it to see what all the hype was about. After 5 minutes of playing with it she starts digging in her purse and pulls out a big stack of items like her check book, calendar, and other things that I could not identify. She then proceeded to tell me that she could eliminate all of those things with an iPhone and that she wanted one.
2 days later I bought her one too.
For both of us it just makes life easier. It is so intuitive that you do not need to read an instruction manual. The only thing is that it is a little weird that we both have one because they are pretty expensive.
Oh well, it is an awesome little device and I am extremely happy with it
