IPhone 3G



Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced today the 3G Iphone.  With 3 awesome new features..1.  GPS  2.  3G speed  3.  It only costs 200 bucks!  Since I bought mine on June 29, 2007...It has never left my side, and now it has only gotten better.  With the revamp of .mac, whenever I type in a new address contact into my Iphone, or Ical event, it immediately is backed up, synched to both of my computers, and I never have to worry...where did I put my address book?  We have the app store where mlb.com will have a live animated update of all games, and video replays of the highlights minutes after they happen!  For example, lets say I am in Mammoth hiking to Mammoth Rock with Dodger.  My brother Matt calls and says, Garrett, you won't believe it..Andruw Jones actually got a game winning home run!  I can pull up the mlb app on the Iphone and watch the replay of the homerun at near WIFI speeds!!  Or maybe I am in the backwoods of Mammoth going for a day hike, I can use the maps application and drop a pin to represent my starting location, and then have the GPS navigate me back to the start!!   This will all be available July 11th folks.  For anyone who is thinking of getting a smart phone, and buys a blackberry instead of this for 200 bucks, well they just don't get it.

I am leaving a new poll up and set it to end the day the new iphone goes on sale.  Please vote on my poll!!  (Also serves as my countdown clock :)

Honestly Garrett,
Other than your post, I have no idea what an IPhone is. Plus I am cheap. still using my free phone from AT&T. But if you give me your old phone, I am willing to give Iphone a chance.

You crack me up! When I sell my car someday, I will then get an iPhone. For now, I love the hands free feature of my car that integrates with my speaker and my very old Motorola V60.
Call me antiquated, but at least if have my iMac and love it. Thanks to you!

Andruw Jones hits a homer? Does the new phone come with crazy pills?
