    Does it really come in as handy as everyone says it does?

    Although I'm on my iMac right now, I use it MUCH less now that I have an iPhone.

    I pretty much do everything with it.

    Same here. I have a MacBook and I really only use it for Skype, syncing/restoring my iPhone and doing homework.

    •Yesterday I watched a full movie on my iPhone.

    •Today, I used Siri to help me find the nearest court so I can sort out my life issues.

    •And I used it to contact everyone I needed to contact today.

    About as handy as they come! It's safe to say I'd be super rattled if I lost or didn't have an iPhone.

    I woke up and used it to read Twitter and found out the pope was resigning, so got to tell people about that first.

    Was studying for most of the day but read tech news on Flipboard while commuting to/from school.

    When I got to school for my test, I realized I forgot which room the test was in so I used the BlackBoard app to check my course news feed.

    Called and texted some people as well and listened to music anytime I had a break.

    read a magazine and a chapter of a book. Used it most of the day for music. Texted the wife. Basically the stuff it was designed to do.

    It reminded me it was garbage day.

    Told me the weather.

    Reminded me of meetings and tasks.

    Read/replied to many emails when away from my desk.

    Accepted meetings.

    Listened to music at my desk.

    Took and made business and personal calls.

    Traded text messages with colleagues.

    Chatted via text with my wife who's in China for the New Year and discussed medical options over our ill daughter. Took a picture and mailed to her. Rcv'd a couple too.

    Dictated an email over a production issue while in commute traffic.

    FaceTimed with my daughter to check on her.

    Used it as a timer while cooking dinner for my daughter and me.

    It would not bring me a cocktail. It must be a bug needing reported.

    I sent tracking information using Deliveries, used 1password to enter my credentials for an edible arrangement I sent my wife, I saved some articles to read later with Instapaper, tweeted, facebooked, and instagrammed.

    Woke up, looked at my phone.

    Cried because it was inside a bowl of rice after being dropped into a bowl of toilet water.

    Went back to sleep and prayed for it.

    First I did a lot of banking. Then I did some more banking. Towards the end if the day I did even more banking. And last, I called the local pizzeria and ordered a medium cheese haha.

    LOL! I shouldn't laugh but I'm just laughing at the way you said it.

    I feel for you dude I'll pray too.

    That's like asking if toilet paper comes in handy after dropping a load.

    I listened to XM radio. Paused a song when I was done. Five hours later, opened the XM app again, unpaused the song and continued listening to it.

    It was a song by Pink Floyd, Pigs (three different ones) so it's pretty long.

    Used the Stopwatch to time the length of time it took for me to roast 1/2 pound of coffee beans.

    Used Timer to remind me when my espresso machine was sufficiently warmed up to pull shots.

    Notice a pattern??:p:D

    Checked work and personal email, read twitter, facebook, face timed my family overseas, browsed the net, sent iMessages to wife, listened to music, played some games, listened and watched podcasts. Took a couple of of voice calls.
    Can't imagine my life without it.

    Interesting scatological comparison.

    Now, if you didn't have toilet paper after "dropping a load" (delightful imagery!), could you use your iPhone....never mind!:p

    :D

    When I went to a remote area in the philippines (where I do business) I used my iPhone as my only computer for about two weeks. I surfed the net with it, used the GPS a lot (I'm not Filipino and I had no idea where stuff was, and since I didn't speak the language I couldn't always ask for good directions), I also listened to my music and podcasts, did all my business email, and used it for Skype to talk to people back home.

    Other than playing Starcraft or working with Photoshop or code (which I rarely do) I'd say an iPhone would be the device id pick if I could only have ONE piece of technology.
