iPhone Fever Lights Up Blogs
The iPhone is here! The iPhone is here!
In case you missed it, today is the day that Apple's iPhone arrives. If you're like me -- a daily reader of way too many blogs -- you know there was no way you could miss this news. Over at Valleywag, a self-described Silicon Valley gossip blog, the top five entries today are about the iPhone - including a clip of the Today Show's Meredith Vieira fumbling with one of the "must-have" devices.
On Lifehacker, a blog largely devoted to technology productivity tools that are intended to make life easier, there's a posting on the iPhone's Top 10 applications. Over at ArsTechnica's Infinite Loop, there's an interesting read on a virtual meeting among Apple employees, where chief executive Steve Jobs talks about how the iPhone will forever change the mobile space (and how every full-time Apple employee and part-time employees with a year of service will receive an iPhone).
Matt Marshall, a former colleague of mine who now authors VentureBeat, chimed in this morning to highlight companies that are making iPhone announcements of their own today - some with applications for the iPhone, others offering support for the iPhone and some who are offering tips on how to get out of your current cellphone contract and switch to AT&T Wireless (the only wireless company offering iPhone service.)
I could go on and on - but I think you get the point. The blogosphere has iPhone fever. Truth be told, I initially thought about not adding to the coverage, here on Post I.T., but as you can see, the iPhone, much like Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's PlayStation3 before it, has become one of the most anticipated tech products to hit the market.
Here's a question for you: Is it too much? Was the hype and buildup an overkill of attention? Do you really feel like you need to read anything more about the iPhone? Personally, I'm looking forward to the day I get to take one on a test run. But since I'm not an AT&T Wireless customer (I'm one of those people who likes reading headlines and checking mail on the Metro, which I can only do on the Verizon Wireless network), I've pretty much accepted that I won't have an iPhone of my own anytime soon.
