Chris Pirillo thinks the iPhone “is going to kill.” So does his non-geek brother, Adam:
“My brother Adam isn’t a geek – and he’s never written to me about any other device (from Apple or any other manufacturer). It’s not even out yet and I already hate the iPhone… largely because someone else didn’t make it four years ago. Seriously. Apple gets the consumer in ways that no other company ever will. It makes my new Smartphone seem so… ancient.”
I’m still not convinced I need any kind of mobile phone but would like to have all other features of the iPhone. For the time being, it’s much cooler to piss on the iPhone than gush over it. Good to see someone whose opinion I value, weigh in on this.
