iPhone mania - nuff already

I can't get excited by the Apple iPhone palaver. No matter what the hardware is or isn't, whether it has two batteries or one battery or Steorn's Magic Magnet Ju-Ju Rotato-Potato sucking juice from the very fabric of space and time, whether it's white, black or sky-blue pink...

I can't get excited by the Apple iPhone palaver. No matter what the hardware is or isn't, whether it has two batteries or one battery or Steorn's Magic Magnet Ju-Ju Rotato-Potato sucking juice from the very fabric of space and time, whether it's white, black or sky-blue pink... it doesn't matter. It's an iPod with a phone. Or a phone with an iPod. It'll change my life how?

It matters a lot to others, though. For those who can't sleep for wondering what bling Santa Jobs will bring wi' da ring, the Applephone Blog is a collection of Photoshop fantasies about how it might look.

Mostly, they're chrome and white or black and have keyboards that slide out from the middle or the base. It's all tastefully iPodesque and I've not much doubt that the actual item will resemble one or more of the pictures in one or more ways.

With an exception. That one's my favourite. That's one I'd buy. And it's one that Apple, in all its painfully constrained corporate creativity, could never make in a million years.
