    the more realistic ending to that joke...

    "Actually, you can either surf the web OR listen to music. If you try to do both, everything crashes."


    In fairness, this has not happened to me...I just found it ironic that they picked the two things for this joke that people have mentioned as problems when working at the same time.

    just wait until the software update. I'm so sick and tired of people Poo-Pooing the iPhone, it's essentially a beta version of the phone. I mean, papa Jobs said himself that the real genius behind the phone is the ability for added functionality via software.

    So you approve of companies releasing unfinished, beta products and selling them as fully functional and tested devices?

    :confused:

    That's just not funny. At all. It's like something that would spew out of the mouth of an overweight sports fan. At a barbecue. While drinking Budweiser. That he carried in the back of his pickup.

    :confused: To misquote Princess Bride, I don't think that last phrase means what you think it means.

    Every smartphone can add functionality via software. In fact, most others can even do it without (gasp) having to hack behind the manufacturer's back.

    What Jobs was trying to tell us, is that the iPhone wouldn't be finished for launch ;)

    No, seriously, I keep seeing people confused by his software statement. What he was talking about was that they could change what buttons the device had, simply by drawing different ones on the screen.

    Well, if the software update reduces the $60 a month rates for phone service, then I'll probably consider it.

    I'm just not enough of a phone user to justify that kind of expense for phone service. I spend about $100 a year on my current cell phone.

    $100 a year!?! Do you talk to anyone with it? I dont konw of a plan less than 9 buck a month and thats only if your part of a family plan. Unless you are using prepaid


    Im saving money on my iPhone, I used to pay close to 80 bucks a month for my plan, now im paying $30 a month. (9 for family plan + 20 for iphone plan)

    That's because outside of these small online groups the average iPhone owner is not having this experience. In fact, outside this group, no one I know has these problems..Must be luck of the draw.

    That hasn't happened to me either, and I have loved surfing while listening to music. Now surfing via wi-fi while on the phone is a different story worthy of another thread.

    If by 'approval' you mean purchasing a product pre-loaded with beta software (i.e., Windows, Vista, etc) then I'd say 90% of the population is guilty of that.

    exactly , comic strips are then lowest form of comedy. (except for larson of course). I sometimes check the news paper strips just to be stunned at the lack of effort put into them.

    What's wrong with BBQ, or Budweiser, or Pickup Trucks? Or even all 3 together? (aside from the obvious eating/drinking while driving)

    That comic strip is about as funny as something that would appear in newspaper comics. I would estimate the odds that a newspaper comic strip has a worthwhile joke to be roughly 1/150.
