I love to IM, but sometimes I feel like I am just talking to myself.
Here is my most recent example:
[12:31] Cory: The iPhone’s most controversial feature, the omission of a physical keyboard in favor of a virtual keyboard on the screen, turned out in our tests to be a nonissue, despite our deep initial skepticism. After five days of use, Walt — who did most of the testing for this review — was able to type on it as quickly and accurately as he could on the Palm Treo he has used for years
[12:32] Cory: Crap. now I want one too!!!!
[12:33] Cory: The article also mentions that it synchs seamlessly with both macs and windows., USING iTunes…
[12:34] Cory: Does that mean that iTunes is being used to synch contacts, etc.? It looks like iTunes is becoming much bigger than music player software.
[12:35] Cory: I don’t know if you recall a previous article I sent you. I think by these same authors that mentioned that iTunes installs Bonjour on windows machines and is actually a robust “OS” in its own right…
[12:37] Cory: http://ptech.allthingsd.com/20070607/youre-using-itunes-but-are-you-missing-some-of-the-fun/
[12:38] Cory: With parallels, iTunes, AppleTV, Safari, and now the iPhone, Apple products are really integrating into the Windows world…
[12:40] Cory: Interesting:
Walt: This first model is missing some features some other smart phones have, like video recording, instant messaging, and real-time GPS navigation. Do you plan to upgrade iPhones purchased now so they have these features? If so, when?Steve: We don’t talk about future products. I will say that the iPhone is the most sophisticated software platform ever created for a mobile device, and that we think software features are where the action will be in the coming years. Stay tuned.
[12:40] Cory: From:
[12:40] Cory: No IM?
[12:41] Cory: Well, I hope I haven’t bored you to death. Maybe you are already dead. Sorry.
Oh well, I must be one of those people who IMs because they like to hear the sounds of the voices in their heads.
Is it true that the iPhone doesn’t have Instant Messaging capabilities?
