  • What do you enjoy?

    If you want being tracked and wiretapped 24/7 - buy the iPhone (due to the not user-replaceable batteries).

    If you enjoy the poorest sound quality - buy the iPod nano. If the poorest sound is not enough for you and you love the worst reliability player with the poorest sound - buy the iPod shuffle.

    If you do not need a desktop replacement and a 'road worrier' cause' you don't know what do you want and what to do with a laptop - buy the MacBook Air. At least you might enjoy upsetting someone that your laptop is thinner.

    If you cannot watch a movie without ghosting/trails - buy the iMac or any Apple monitor and you will enjoy huge Response Time, like 14 ms. Compare:

  • Woz LOVES 3G

    There's a story, probably true, that when Woz got a 3G phone
    he didn't get great reception at home.

    Frustrating.

    But he owns a second house just for parties. Saves time on
    cleanup, don't you know. Just call the cleaning service and go
    home afterward.

    When he was throwing a party he noticed he got great 3G
    reception at the party mansion, so he switched houses to get
    better reception.

    He has the iPhone out of loyalty, and, of course, because ALL
    Apple employees got one for free.

    I LOOOOVE my iPhone, *however* I *do* miss the ability for the RAZR to just slip into my pocket (wouldn't DARE with a touch-screen phone - likely to scratch or damage it with my luck).

    • iPhone is nearly indestructable...

      I have an iPod touch, and I can assure that the screen is very
      durable...there is the odd scratch, but that's just because I was
      dumb with the things I put with it in my pocket. If you really want
      the screen to be indestructable, get a screen protector. They don't
      mess with the screen at all, and they provide an extra layer of
      protection.
