iNeedMore

Standard

Nothing kills productivity like a Keynote. Seriously.

Apple finally delivered an iPhone. Well, delivered is a bit of a stretch considering it won’t be until June 2007 before it will start hitting the shelves in Apple and Cingular stores. While I am really excited about the iPhone, and glad it’s finally here, I can’t help but think: “Where’s the rest of the announcements, Steve?” I know, I’m coming off as ungrateful. I mean, Steve invented the friggin iPod and just made the friggin iPhone. But really, is that it?

The Apple TV update was nice. I might have to buy one once it hits rev.2 and I get around to upgrading my home network to 802.11n. Apple will definitely have a place in my living room. I’ve already started to amass quite a collection of digital media that I’ve purchased off of iTunes, and it will be nice to be able to enjoy that content on my living room television.

The presentation on the iPhone was nice as well. It was very thorough. I mean, incredibly friggin’ thorough. Thorough to the point where it seemed like they had to stretch it out as long as possible in order to fill the two hour time slot alotted for the Keynote. I waited in anticipation for the “One More Thing…” The fact that the company formerly known as Apple Computer, Inc. is now Apple, Inc. wasn’t really much of a surprise. The fact that there were no additional announcements seemed more than a little odd to me.

People expected and, dare I say, demanded an Apple Phone. No amount of RDF would save Steve’s arse if he failed to deliver one. People expected an update on iTV, now known as Apple TV. Even with both of these great announcements, people still expected a lot more.

  1. Before the iphone was announced I was pretty syked about the possibility of it being sold unlocked so that if you were on any cell phone carrier you could get it. Now that it is only Cingular, no way am I switching just to buy this product. I had Cingular at one point and they were a rip off then and I haven’t heard anything to change my mind. The iPhone is nice, but not worth switching phone companies, especially to Cingular.
    As for the rest of the announcements, knowing Steve Jobs, he was so excited about this product everything else took a back seat. He will hold some sort of small meeting in the next few weeks where he will release iWork and iLife and updates. He was looking for a stage to make his stock sky rocket, and it did indeed do that. All the other product announcements are small peanuts compared to the iPhone.

  3. Yeah, the fact that you’re locked in (for TWO YEARS) with Cingular kinda sucks imho. I was a former Cingular customer as well, and while the service wasn’t bad… I just don’t know if I want to go back to using them again.

    I agree with your other ideas… I think you’re right and there will be additional announcements in the coming weeks.
