The iPhone Post to End iPhone Posts

Kottke's ginormous iPhone post. Update: Jobs says it really will be a closed device.


And Pogue answers a ton of questions.

Cingular is your only option for at least two years, it will not synch with Outlook, you will not be able to install applications, it will not run Mac apps, it will not open Office files, you cannot connect to iChat, no games, no support for Flash in the browser, no video capture.

Right on.. at least the second half of your 2007 prediction appears to be holding true. I was worried for a bit that I actually might care, but after reading your update seems more like a vanity purchase as opposed to a productivity tool. I think Colbert said somthing along the lines of using it to call your friends who don't have one.
