    Based on what I see here, I'd say that article is spot on :eek:

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Where are the hot dogs? :confused:

    BTW, I can't seem to print from my iPhone. Why is that? :confused::)

    Seriously, I think the only iPhone users that are delusional are the ones that think the iPhone is very expensive. For those that think it's just a phone, they aren't so wrapped up in every little nick or blemish the phone may have.

    ITT: Nuts and bolts. :)

    Strand Consultants are just as nuts as iPhone users, it seems. I ordered a free copy of their report, though. I'm curious.

    One of the "myths" is that the iPhone doesn't bring business to operators...DUH! Because the process of subsidizing an iPhone is freakin' expensive and hardly worth it for companies. What's to defend? That's just the truth.

    Most of these are pretty un-surprisingly probably inaccurate. :|
    Did you know, developing App Store applications isn't profitable at all?
    And I'm not quite sure anyone claimed the iPhone was the first touchscreen phone!

    ...All this and I don't even own an iPhone!

    The overall article is kinda spot on.

    For me its a phone and multi-media device. Being an artistic person, it becomes almost necessity, from revieewing graphic designs to demo-ing music and MMS-ing to people.

    However, too many people drink the Apple Kool Aid. I posted elsewhere, that of the 6 iPhones in my household, my roommie with the AT&T Blackberry, or any Blackberry lol, gets better reception, call quality, blah blah on the SAME network.

    The lack of flash, and some of Apple's practices and controls over their software bother me. People get on other companies for doing the same thing. So it is kinda like Stockholm Syndrome.

    I like great products and good companies. However, corporation is just that, not a lifestyle choice, or a sticker I put on my car. I get if you have a Jimi Hendrix poster in your room, but an Apple poster or sticker on your car? It's a NASDAQ company. lol What next? GE Groupies?
