Open Thread: the iPhone, Apple TV, Steve's other announcements?

Apple - QuickTime - Macworld 2007 Keynote

Apple - iPhone

Wow. Everyone here in the MacBreak war room is still perspiring as we let it all sink in. OS X. On your phone. Damn.

So what do you guys think about Steve's announcements? What surprised you? What else do you wish you'd heard? What do you think it will mean to have running OS X on your mobile phone?

Bottom line for the Emory...

Bottom line for the Emory Household:

I would buy two, Day One, if I can buy them unlocked and unbranded.

If someone figures out how to unlock them (and I don't give a shit about Visual Voicemail /yawn) I will get two Cingular lines, get two iPhones, break contract for 150 each, and be happy.

Apple nailed it. My only reservation is how they're going to handle 3rd-party applications and access to the device. There is the potential to have more mobile developers than any other platform overnight if they just let the device take code from external sources.

In all honesty I don't see any reason why they wont allow developers to have a "back door" developer mode on a handset.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
