Have you heard about this?
Apparently, Apple Computer Company has released some sort of handheld “smart phone” apparatus that they claim will revolutionize the industry.
Dubbed the “i-phone”, they say it combines the features of a cordless phone, a miniaturized computing implement and a music player, all into one.
Far be it for me to scoff at such a claim, but let’s just leave it at the old axiom of “seeing is believing.”
Since I don’t see it anywhere, I don’t believe it.
I guess that Apple has decided the low-key approach is the best, from a marketing standpoint, as I have yet to find any mention of this in the media.
The most far-fetched part of this whole thing is that they think anybody would be willing to pay almost TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS for such a device!
Um, hello? For a phone???
Earth to cuckoo Apple people: prepare to fail BIG TIME.
Excuse me if I don’t rush out to my local eBay re-seller with my StarTac in hand. Better yet, why don’t I stay home, tape a calculator and a Walk Man to it and call it a day? There ya go, I just saved 200 bucks.
