Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbors iPhone!

Postby Strong Eagle » Tue, 20 Oct 2009 9:28 pm

OK... I'll admit... I like technology... and I've never been a techno geek... you know... logging in to some forum or another to extol the virtues of the particular gadget I am on love with.

Having said that, the iPhone is a blast... two weeks now... the most intuitive interface I have ever encountered. Super nice.

Couple of flaws... and on the whole, a fantastic phone experience... I am at the point now that I just could not consider the PAIN of punching buttons on a Symbian (or Windows) phone.

Cheers.

B_T, in your situation, I would think you could also add aggravating as well, seeing you would probably only be around one with a matchmaker in tow! :P AND her parents decreetly a couple of steps only, behind the two of you!.

Well I Love My Iphone.. But gotta admit, Well they are lot of things
they can improve on.. Specially on camera Quality and few other applications . Well not sure about Handling a Virgin or Matchmaking, But an apple day keeps the doctor away.. So the best way to stay healthy is using Apple :lol:

Just one more thing, boys and girls. I've got my computer plugged into my stereo system... gives me access to the more than 2500 songs I have on iTunes. Pretty good, but I did have to walk over to the computer to play a song.

Downloaded an iPhone app called 'Remote'. Now I can control my iTunes from my iPhone by using the wifi network in my house. iPhone displays album art, gives me all sorts of play options from anywhere in the house. Sit at the dinner table and pick a great selection of easy listening music. Whatever.

Quite cool! Can your Symbian do this?

the mrs has a docking station / speaker thingy her iphone sits in, i want to be able to control it from my pc.
