The iPhone is on PC World's "15 Biggest Tech Disappointments of 2007" list. From the brouhaha I've been reading, you'd think that they think the iPhone is a piece of junk. Nothing could be farther from the truth -- they think it's "wildly innovative." What they're largely griping about is how Apple has handled the iPhone to this point:
"Memo to Apple: It's time to treat iPhones for what they really are--pocket computers with phone functions built in--and open them up the world. Just a thought."They're also unhappy with the price tag bait and switch. I don't blame them for that either, I would have rather not spent the extra $100. What else, hmmm... they gripe about AT&T's network. I can't stay mad at anyone that doesn't love their carrier. I agree with their article. The iPhone is a masterwork, but it's a heavily locked-down device, and I'm not sure yet of the real reason.
