The Jury Is In, The Votes Counted, And The Bill Signed

After a couple of days of being with my new iPhone (I call him Reginald) I've decided to write a little review on my experiences thus far.

First and foremost, I was VERY excited about even the prospect of getting an iPhone. When I opened the gift, I simply couldn't help but grin widely.
My experiences since that point of opening have barely changed. Here are some bullets of my thoughts:

*OS is unbeatable. Just looking at the menu proves that this phone is 100% Apple. Awesome UI overall.

*App store is amazing! Free apps help me stay connected with my twitter, facebook, myspace, google talk, and skype.

*3G is great, but a battery waster. I'm sure Mac is working on that issue though. I love being online when I want, however, so yin does meet yang.

*Copy and paste, or rather lack thereof, kills me. I hear this is being fixed in the OS update, 3.0

*Although cute and theoretically useful, I find the built in iPod to be somewhat worthless. Maybe it's just because I have an 8 gig, but regardless it seems like filling that space with apps and movies is far better than music. After all, you can simply download pandora for the music side of life. Realize this is coming from a guy with a brand new nano to fit his music needs lol.

*Google maps is beautiful. 'Nuff said.

Perhaps some of my opinions will change with time, but for now that's what I think.

I love my iPhone :)


  1. Awesome! Wow, all that stuff sounds so cool! I'm glad you love it, and I LOVE the name! :)

  2. I was wondering what the name would be... and I knew you would love google maps... now you never have to learn directions. lame!
