iPhone, therefore I am


After much thought and after twitching back and forth between different options, we decided to take the plunge and get iPhones. These things are amazing, to say the least. I used to say that the iconic gizmo of the early twentieth century would be the iPod. I was wrong. It’s the iPhone. It’s one thing to be able to carry a few thousand songs in your pocket. It’s something else to be able to carry songs and other media on a device from which you can also surf the web and record hi-def video. Or blog, as I just finished doing.

8/11 update: D’oh. I meant “21st century.” The iconic gizmo of the 20th century was the 1040.
