iPhone 4

in a word: ugh.

an entry about it will probably go on resonate at some point since it's been forever since i've written on there. but for now i'll at least say that it's funny to me how all of the tweaks to the current iPhone are things that i like, and the Big New Feature that they're using as a selling point i really really dislike.

i need to give it more thought to formulate my ideas about it properly, and that's not going to happen until late june/early july. in the meantime, everyone else can jism over the thing; i'll stay over here in my corner with my typewriter.

funny, wonder when we'll hit a point where someone will have to ask "what's a typewriter?"

Huh. The iPhone 4 is the first one where I've thought the underlying hardware wasn't complete crap. But until wireless carriers charge something more appropriate for data transfers, I'm still going to pass.

right, i think very similar.

data transfer paradgim is shifting for AT&T, something like $15/mo for 200mb or less, $25/mo for above? i forget exactly.

$15 up to 200 MB, $25 up to 2 GB /mo, some additional fee for more.

It's fantastic for people like me who are attached by wireless 99% of the time and barely use any cell bandwidth.

Also, regarding video chat:

I don't find video calls useful for personal calls, but surprisingly, my tech-illiterate parents really like it and use skype video calls a lot.

no that's not right. i forget what it is, but the upper end is more expensive, like $50/mo for a lot more or something.

lol @ what's a typewriter. I was once babysitting and pretending to type typewriter style, and the boy asked me why I was hitting the side of my computer.

What's the Big New Feature? I'm too lazy to ready up on the hype.
