iGot an iPhone, Initial Impressions and Reflections, Part 3

Before delving further into my initial impressions, I wanted to go back to the topic of iPhone’s display that I hadn’t yet covered – brightness and color. The screen is absolutely the brightest and richest color LCD I have ever seen on a mobile device. In fact my initial reaction upon powering up the device for the first time was that Apple obviously preconfigured these units with screen brightness to maximum strength by default. One of my first actions was to go to the settings screen and turn it down. Imagine my shock when I discovered that brightness level was in fact set at just 50%. Moving the slider to its maximum setting creates a retina popping brightness that could double for a Maglite. So bright in fact that it’s actually painful to look at. Needless to say I don’t recommend doing this. You’ll have no problem finding your keys in the dark with this thing.

iGot an iPhone, Initial Impressions and Reflections, Part 2

Does the iPhone live up to the hyperbole? Is the device really as cool as it looks? Even more important – is it a practical device to use or just an expensive, but impressive, luxury gadget? I can’t fully answer the philosophical aspects until I’ve used the iPhone for a longer period of time. Two weeks is my usual period for test modeling a product before passing final judgment. But in this case I will share my initial impressions and experiences. Some good, some not so good.

iGot an iPhone, Initial Impressions and Reflections, Part 1

Please excuse my absence for the past 24 hours. I am still basking in iPhone afterglow, having spent most of my time heavily engaged in taste testing the Jesus phone, putting it through its paces. Before I get into my impressions of the device (spoiler: It is AMAZING!) I thought I would share my experiences that led up to actually getting the phone. Some of the things I discovered from my adventure were just as enlightening, and entertaining, as the iPhone itself.

Line Tip Number 27: Go Light on the Beverages

I now regret drinking that half-liter serving of coke at McDonalds. Now comes the realization that i can't leave my spot in line. I knew I should have packed an adult diaper before leaving home.

iPhone Does Have RSS Support...Via Safari

So now we know how iPhone will handle RSS, and as we feared it's through Safari. Apple has developed RSS viewing through a Safari-based web app (reader.mac.com). However, iPhone should be able to support my favorite RSS solutions; Google Reader. Can't wait to try that out.

Evidence Points to Exchange Support

Think Secret posted a screenshot gallery flaunting the iPhone user interface. One of the images depicts mail services supported by the email application, where an button for Microsoft Exchange appears. Now before you go wetting yourself don't get too excited because this still doesn't mean iPhone supports DirectPush. More likely this is simply an option for Exchange IMAP support. Sorry.

iPhone Mania Taking Place

The circus has come to town. At least that was the scene at Apple's flagship shop in downtown San Francisco. Something tells me the iPhone campers weren't having three rings of fun.

And for an up to the minute report, iLoser is unconscious, this time in shirtless repose. The last shred of dignity this poor guy had when out the window when he drifted off to sleep with his hands in his pockets.

24 Hours to Go, And I'm Already Exhausted

This is it kiddies, the night before the great Apple apocolypse plunges the western world into chaos. Already iPhone fanboys and gadget whores are camping out in front of Apple stores like street corner crack addicts at a methadone clinic. 24 hours before this six month long roller-coaster ride finally comes to stop - or derails...whichever happens first. I'm already feeling burned out from all the hype and drama this past week, it feels like I've been waiting in line since Monday sharing a seat next to Mr. iLoser - the flies and the hype are starting to get to me. So much so that iPhone has lost some of its luster in my mind. The mystery is gone. But not my excitement.
