    Hi, I'm Katie. I'll be blogging about the iPhone for MacRumors.

    I thought it'd be nice to give y'all a little background as to who I am, what I do, and all that fun stuff, so you can get some of an idea of where I'm coming from.

    I'll admit it: I'm an iPod-switcher. I got an iPod and synced it with our Windows machines for about 8 months before I had enough money for my Mac. It just worked so well and beautifully that I decided that an Apple would be a great laptop to have, and hey—the iBooks were so cute!

    I got my first Mac on September 3rd, 2004. She was a 12" iBook G3 900 mHz from a pawn shop. I upgraded to a 15" PowerBook G4 1.5 gHz that I won via scratch-off card on Tiger night. The iBook suffered logic board death a few weeks later! It was great timing to get the PowerBook when I did!

    I've been a regular around the MacRumors forums for a bit over two years now. Arn and I had discussed me doing some blogging for MacRumors in the past, but nothing ever really precipitated until a few days ago. Out of the blue, Arn asked if I'd like to blog about the iPhone for the site. Through a series of fantastic events, here I am. MacRumors has graciously agreed to provide the iPhone and service for me in exchange for blogging about it.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I'll enjoy writing it.

    Katie = Katie Ta Achoo of the forums. She probably won't be able to respond as she is at work, and then standing in an iPhone line. So we won't get much from her until later in the day.

    And we'll provide more details about how the blog works. In the meanwhile, you can see it at http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/

    Hey, Arn -- GREAT choice! I'm just so tickled for Katie and you KNOW we'll get a quality product here in terms of a fair and honest assessment of the iPhone, all the goodies about it and all the not-so-goodies.....

    Way to go, Katie!! Looking forward to those blog entries!!! :)
