iPhone 3G arrives today

Endgadget has a thorough and oftentimes witty review of the latest appliance that we are told everyone wants but it's not clear if everyone really needs.

(I won't be getting one, 'cuz AT&T wireless service where we live is, well, crap.)

I do have one question though. The iPhone has been out for a year now, and this latest iteration adds 3G services and a GPS chip and now Apple has opened up the App Store that lets users add whatever nifty programs they want to deck their iPhones out with.

Okay well... does anybody actually talk to other people with their iPhone?

Like I said, it's been out for a year. I've seen plenty of 'em since their rollout last summer. When I was going through the airports on the way to Texas last year, there was no telling how many people were walking around with iPhones. But I haven't once seen anyone dialing a number and talking to another person the old-fashioned way like is usually done with a telephone.

So do you have an iPhone that you use for stuff other than e-mail and web browsing... like, say, talking into it? :-)

Hey Mr. Knight,

I know this is off topic, but I figured since the whole Viacom thing, you'd probably get a kick out of knowing that Viacom is being sued by Konami over Rock Band.

Here's the link to the article: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6193644.html

Wait a sec... you mean Harmonix, the company that makes Rock Band, is owned by Viacom?!?


I love Rock Band! And now I find out that it's being made by a company ultimately owned by one of my many nemeses, Sumner Redstone!


Is there nothing that is unsoiled and untainted by that megalithic corporate monstrosity?!?

Yup, Harmonix is part of MTV Networks, which of course is owned by Viacom.

I figured you'd get a kick out of seeing Viacom being accused of stealing...again...
