It has been less than 24 hours since I got my new iPhone. I know you are asking yourself 'Isn't Aaron too cheap to buy an iPhone?', yes I am; this phone was purchased through work. Anyway for those of you unfamiliar with the iPhone it isn't really a phone at all. Sure you can make and take calls on your iPhone, but this little baby is a portable universe all it's own.
The first thing I did was download my pictures and music through iTunes. This took up about 1/4 of my available 8G's of space. Then I synced my Outlook (email, calendar and contacts) wirelessly (since this device was purchased with the intent that I use it for work). Both went off without a hitch and I was already pleased with the massive upgrade this device was compared to my last device. The Photo viewer is pretty trick, with access to your pictures at your finger tips, literally.
Then I found the App Store. Life has been a blur since then. (I won't even go into the Wi-fi, Bluetooth, YouTube and Web browsing capabilities)
Thus far I've stayed to the free apps (again I'm cheap) but even these are amazing. First two I downloaded were the facebook and twitter apps and they work like a charm. Then of course was a Star Wars lightsaber simulator (Awesome!). Then I got the entire standard works and hymns right there in the palm of my hand.
Today I got SportsCenter and MLB at Bat apps, I got the news from USA Today and a racecar app (FastLane) that is really cool.
I found apps that teach you Spanish and German ("me gusta mantequilla").
I felt like CNN's John King and his magic screen with Google earth. Gives a whole new meaning to "the whole whole in your hands".
Then there's the time waster, kid entertainer, co-worker annoyer kind of apps. Seriously I'll never be productive again. What were they thinking getting me this device?
Bottom line is if there's a better technology than this I haven't seen it. I'd like to blog more but Arcade Hoops Basketball is calling.
