iPhone Second Impressions

When I first got my iPhone, I wrote up my first impressions. I was in Maine most of this week, on the beach. I wasn’t on vacation, though… I was working. But the house where I was staying had no wifi. But it did have a shitty EDGE connection. So, I hammered on the iPhone. A LOT.

First of all, here’s why the EDGE was weak. This is where I was using it from… literally the end of the country.

If I drove downtown, the EDGE was much better. So, using it on the beach was an exercise in patience. But, I just wanted to share some more thoughts after using it more and more.

And the one thing I’m almost afraid to admit…

I was looking in the rear view mirror to see if Nolan was asleep in his car seat. I reached up towards the mirror to do a two-fingered flick to zoom in. That’s almost like reaching for command-Z when you spill something.

I’m eagerly awaiting software version 1.1 (to get it a bit more stable—and can I get me some copy/paste?), but man, this thing is great.

    …something tells me you would appreciate being able to copy and paste? :)

    The photo is fantastic. I heard nothing but dread from people talking about the iPhones ability to capture images prior to its release. I have note heard anything else about it. I guess that was not the case.

    I gotta say, the camera is probably my most-used feature on it. Then email and web browsing. Heck, I sometimes forget it’s an iPod and (yes) a phone.
