First of all let me start by saying that before I owned my iphone I really could have cared less about Apple or it's products. But the first time I stepped into the Apple store to buy my iPhone I was hooked. I since have also bought the new iPod Nano (for the kids) and have plans to buy Apple TV and a mac mini. The first couple of weeks I had my first Apple product I could'nt believe what I had been missing and I put Apple up on a very high pedastal. I think that most people who have been using Apple for years had Apple on the same pedastal like the where somehow above all other electronic companies. Now I don't know that pedastal seems to be getting lower and lower with each annoucement of how they are handling the iphone. I have no desire to hack to get 3rd party apps on the phone but it seems that may be the only way to get them. It also has occured to me that Apple is going to use the iphone as thier cash cow. I used to look up to Steve Jobs like he was someone to listen to but now he reminds me more of a bully on the playground who is holding all the marbels. Come on Steve share the marbles instead of hording them all to youself and then charging us when you decide to dole them out. I believe in free enterprise dont get me wrong but when you pay $600 for a phone you think it would be able to do all the things that the much older phones could do. I was shocked to learn that you could'nt MMS or use your songs in your ipod as ringtones. It all comes down to money any features that the iphone does not have now I dont think we will get until Apple figures out how they can cash in on it. I love my iphone I only wish Apple was still the company everyone says it used to be.
