iphone - One to Rule Them

My Response to New Zealand Herald article 5 June 2007

Like it or not, the iphone is the most anticipated product in the history of consumerism. Steve Jobs describes it as "magical" and existing competitors as "just garbage". Have a look at the videos of the device in operation and you may see what he means.

If you think its all about a list of features, then yes, the iphone seems nothing special. If it is about advancing the human computer interface then this thing is as important as the mouse.

There are many writers who snipe at the iphone. Personally I can't get where they are coming from, other than from a certainly that they will generate hits, as did unfavourable reviews of the Lord Of The Rings movies.

But come June 29 you will see that there is indeed, ONE TO RULE THEM. . .
