    What do an iPhone and HDTV have anything to do with one another?

    A Macbook Pro or a car?
    An ice cream cone or a pen?
    New shoes or a haircut?

    ha! what a rediculous thread.

    umm i'd go with the apple tv. i think it's a happy medium. i think it satisfies a little of both...

    1.) you need an hdtv to use it.
    2.) it's a new trendy apple product.


    tho i guess you can't really watch it without your hdtv nor can it make phone calls.

    still... comparing an orange v. a watermelon

    I say all three... NO... all five... go buy an orange and a watermelon to eat while watching your HDTV with AppleTV hooked up to it and talking on your new iPhone.

    I guess you didn't understand his question for some reason. But if I had to choose from your list.... I would pick the car since I already have a MacBook Pro (hopefully not a car for the same price as a MBP though) then the ice cream, but not for the same price as the pen.

    Then lastly the new shoes... but I could use a haircut.

    I can answer that question for you as much as you can answer my deliberation between having Chinese or Italian for lunch.

    How can people not realize the topic creator is debating whether to purchase one or the other?

    Personally, I'd go for the iPhone. It's much more innovative that an HDTV. HDTV is much more like the TV you already have than the iPhone is to the phone you already have.

    It is not really a fair comparison. They are two completely different devices. I would not waste $600 on a mediocre, small sized HDTV. Save up a few grand for a nice model or get an iPhone.

    What kind of HDTV could you get with 600? Go with the iPhone.

    My brother got a Vizio 32" LCD HDTV for 600 bucks. It's an awesome TV.

    If I were like that, it would make sense that I come to the iPhone forum, interest in the product.


    Why do you keep coming in here?

    I say HDTV. Once you go HD you don't go back.
