The iPhone: Crack for Geeks

I actually tried to start this post from my new iPhone, but apparently there are a few problems with the WordPress editor running on the device.

I was in a day long conference today. My iPhone usage (as recorded by the usage meter on the iPhone itself) is at almost 6 hours since the last full charge (this morning). I did a supplementary charge this evening for about 1 hour while I was giving demos on my laptop. But, all in all, I spent most of the day emailing, surfing and talking. Now this was a little difficult because I was attending a conference and had to attend to my commitments there as well. But every chance I had to check the latest baseball scores or my email, I was pulling out the iPhone. I even made or took half a dozen phone calls.

I am admittedly a computer geek, but in the past have found myself in situations were I was unable to use a computer effectively. Things like being in a conference without a solid internet connection or on a plane for 3 hours limited my access to either real time or interesting content. The iPhone has practically eliminated this gap. Even on the plane trip to San Jose, I was able to shut the iPhone off and still listen to hours of podcast from ESPN and NASA. Speaking of which, leading up to my most recent trip, I downloaded nearly 8 gigabytes of podcast to listen to and/or watch. While this will be more than enough to keep me entertained for the next month, I was able to hit the capacity limit for my iPhone much sooner than I ever thought I would.

What do I find wrong with the iPhone? First, the volume. With my last phone I could hear it ring, (and my co-workers as well) from three states away. That is saying alot since I live in Texas not Rhode Island or Connecticut where the distance between states is approximately the distance between my home and my work, but more like a 2 hour plane ride. This probably makes my co-workers happy, but I tend to miss more calls on my new iPhone, unless I’m actively using it and the call interrupts my current action. (Does anyone know of a hack to increase the ring volume on the iPhone?) The second major problem with the iPhone is the lack of Flash ability. There are several web applications I use that are flash based. I have to wait to get to my laptop to check these type of apps.

Well, all in all, this was probably my most arsine post, but I felt I need a little venting and so… I will write a few more post regarding specific detail regarding the iPhone at a later date. I just needed a seg way for those post. This is it … I guess. Don’t pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.

Until next time….

    I leave a reply when I like reading an article on a website or if I have got a little something of value to chip in to a debate. And on this particular article I was actually moved enough to leave a remark 😉 I do have 2 to 3 questions for you if it’s allright?. Could it be simply me or do some of these comments come across as coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list every one of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile? Thanks!

    Like when you deposit a pokemon, you can only search for
    those you’ve already encountered in the game world. For example, the
    2D pixels have been replaced with full 3D graphics using the same engine found in “Pokemon X”
    and “Pokemon Y. It lets you break rocks outside of battle, but not until you get the Coal Badge, so keep heading straight to the right.
