The iPhone: "I don't want to hear it."
Posted: Friday June 29th, 2007 by

The iPhone releases today (6/29) at 6pm and I'll be honest I'm tired of listening to all the hype. That isn't to say I wouldn't want one myself. Definitely not, I like gadgets as much as the next geek, and this thing make my finger tips itch.

Hell, I wouldn't even say that Apple is responsible for the hype machine surrounding the iPhone. All they've done in my opinion is put out advertisements showing what the thing can do. It's we geeks that cranked the engine and revved the hype engine.

For all my geek-interest in this device, there is something that immediately stopped me from actually pursuing one: the price. The iPhone is releasing in 4GB and 8GB models STARTING at $499... not including the calling plan (AT&T exclusive). For those of you that actually manage to get your hands on one, here's my sincere hope that you can get it for less if you sign up for extended plans.

Today's Pimpage: Woody is wearing a "Lab Partners" shirt and Ted is wearing a "Diodes are a Girls Best Friend" shirt both from Threadless.Com.
