    I’m with Janis. The appeal of mine, only a few weeks old, is strong as ever. My 82 year old neighbor, a fine yet low-tech lady, is just fascinated by it all.

    Just don’t look at the A-Z Comic Strip Listing here with Safari on your iPhone. Three columns are collapsed into one and it’s impossible to read with them on top of each other. If you do happen to find what you’re looking for, it’s impossible to hit the correct link. The phone version doesn’t come up like it used to before the merger. The Opera browser works better but not perfect. I usually just call mine a smart phone.

    Doesn’t the iPhone spy on you too?

    If you don’t have an iPhone, consider yourself one of the enlightened.

    It used to be Mercedes-talkers. Now they all have iPhones. Same effect.

    It must be perpetually overcast where they live, otherwise how can she always read the screen when outdoors?

    When someone shows me theri new phone app I just make an unimpressed face and say: Is that all it does?

    A friend of mine came up with the perfect response to somebody bragging about their iPhone: “You only bought it; you didn’t invent it.”

    When I got my iPhone, about 3 years ago, it combined the functions of four different boxes I used to maintain—phone, GPS, PDA, and, er, something else. Where’s that memory app?

    I enjoy showing iPhone users comparable and better apps on my Android phone, that cost less to buy, and apps are typically cheaper :D It even plays my iTunes playlists…

    I have a cell phone. I can make calls, and text, going through the letters on each number, you know 2 is abc, 3 is def, and so forth. It doesn’t have a camera, an mp3 player, I can’t surf the web, or do emails, I just make calls. It works just fine for me.

    A different angle – I like that Johnson bucks stereotype here and portrays the woman as the technically astute party. (That holds even if Arlo whips out an Android. :) Disclosure: I’m an iPhone owner who does NOT feel the need to evangelize. People should focus on what they need (which too often is radically different from want). What — it’s a cellphone, too?

    Ever notice how cell phone junkies that love to show off their toys sound like insecure little dogs: yAPP, yAPP, yAPP!
