The Way Coolest All-In-One Tool: Apple’s iPhone

It’s been rumored for months and yesterday, at MacWorld San Francisco, Steve Jobs finally unveiled the long-awaited Apple iPhone.

It combines three products in typical revolutionary Apple fashion:
1) An unbelievably easy-to-use mobile phone that lets you make calls by pointing your finger at a name or number in your address book;
2) A widescreen iPod with Apple’s intuitive touch controls, and
3) An equally breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, Web browsing, maps, and searching.

And you get all of this in one incredibly thin, small and lightweight iPod device.

The iPhone also utilizes an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, so you can control everything with just your fingers — no stylus or pointing device necessary.

According to, “Apple is partnering with Cingular exclusively to offer the phone and cell phone service, which will be available in June and cost between $499 and $599 per device. Apple has also teamed up with both Yahoo and Google to offer e-mail, mapping and Internet services on the phone.”

Not to forget the TV market, Apple also introduced the Apple TV, with a 40GB hard drive and WiFi to record up to 50 hours of TV and synch with your computer. It will sell for $299 and ship in February.

    LOL… I was just thinking of writing an article for the release of the new phone.

    I’ll be testing this phone out in the coming months and will report back on my thoughts.

    You must be one hip, totally wired, all Apple early adopter.
    In my home, I have two Macs, three cell phones and two iPods.
    Let me know how the phone is and write about it.

    You’re not too shabby on the gadgets yourself, Gil. You may have more Apple products than me. But I do have: two laptops (one of them Mac), a desktop, two iPods (one is a shuffle), two digital cameras, and three working/connected cellphones (including the newly released HTC 8525 smartphone). 🙂

    Oh… but I do have some Apple stock. I think that makes one more thing to add. 🙂

    I bought some Apple stock about 5 years ago but it quickly dropped in value and I sold it at a loss.
    What a schmuck I was. Should have held it and made a bundle.
    But I did make a lot on Disney and Pixar stock, so that outweighs one bad decision.
    PS: I forgot to mentoin two digital cameras and three cell phones for me, my wife and daughter.
