    I currently have my mac in for repairs and have been relying solely on my iPhone to remain 'connected' and have found that Im not missing my mac as much as I thought I would do

    I have access to several games, can surf the web...keeping up with my favorite sites (posting this from the phone now), I can catch up on my Youtube and podcasts subscriptions...in fact I have several downloading in iTunes as I type this. I also have two movies I'd forgotten about should I decide to watch something later and can rent from iTunes if I want something new

    I can also stay in touch on/update facebook, check and reply mails, IM etc. The phone is just so versatile and I didn't fully grasp the extent till now as I mostly used the 'phone' part. Then I ask myself would I have these many options on other devices whilst retaining as great a UI experience...maybe...probably not

    Obviously there are still things
    missing such as ability to type/edit office files (Dataviz's offering still suck) but still...for a phone...

    The downside to this versatility is of course...battery life. Why oh why didn't Apple use a 1500mAh battery instead of 1210mAh *Sigh*

    It's a great replacement for a laptop, that's for sure. I'd rather type on a laptop, of course. And it does suck having limited safari and file access. Also, no printing. But all in all, a great thing to have.

    Rolling a Yahtzee while taking a massive gassive is also a religious experience.

    I really don't think VNC is all that useful. I don't know why you would VNC for day-to-day tasks. I do, however, use iSSH for my SSH needs. This is much more practical.

    I had to rely on my 2G as my only "computer/communicator" for a while last year as my G4 PowerBook died and I wanted to wait until the newer MBP's were released and i must say the iPhone did a pretty good job of keeping me connected to the information I needed. Of course this newer 3GS is FAR better and I find myself using it instead of my MBP or new Acer NetBook more and more each day...the 3GS truly is like a Mac in your pocket...;):apple:

    I love my iphone. I have consciously tried to use it all aspects of my life. There is so much that I NEED it for now (email, work-outs, texting, talking, music, book-reading, audiobooks, GPS/ directions)

    I absolutely love it. And for me the difference between this and a blackberry? The iPhone is absolutely user friendly. It's all so seamless.
