iPhone, no thanks

Why would we want to pay for an iPhone? We'd be tied to one service provider. We'd get crappy service. Basically we'd be paying to be a lemming. A much better alternative are the new linux iPhone killers. Basically everything and more than the iPhone. It looks like it starts off with basically the same hardware but at half the price. It can connect to all networks. And it's open source so you can make it truly useful.

I personally will wait until I see battery lives that are rated in weeks rather than days. Wireless network speeds that are comparable to normal PCs. And reception that is actually measured and reliable.

But what the heck. I'm a stick in the mud... All those little kids who have too much money and no personality can buy their personality, uh, iPhones and help lower the prices of better technology.

Everybody knows that the iPhone can make phone calls, play movies & music, surf the web, and a lot more. But, Will It Blend? That is the question.
