Why and How I Got an iPhone?

July 7, 2007

When Jobs announced the iPhone at MacWorld, my immediate thought was “Wow! That’s the handheld device I’ve been waiting for!” Back in the day, I thought the Newton was cool; but never had one. When the Palm Pilot came out, I got one; but never understood why a large portion of the screen was dedicated to text input. Plus I never did get comfortable with graffiti. I’ve had a couple of “internet-capable” cell phones; but they only frustrated the crap out of me the few times I tried them. Plus the data plans seemed way too expensive given the experience delivered. I’ve never had an iPod or MP3 player; who wants to carry that, a cell phone and a PDA?

Welcome to BobM’s iPhone Blog hosted by This is my first blog, and what better reason to start one than the iPhone! My goal is to create, update and manage this blog entirely from my iPhone. Along the way I’ll report on my thoughts of the iPhone including any problems that I have, tips that I find or anything else I find interesting (and I hope that you do to).
