43F Podcast: Snell & Gruber on iPhone applications

Jason Snell and John Gruber on iPhone applications

Merlin talks with MacWorld Magazine’s Jason Snell and DaringFireball.net’s John Gruber about the likely future of applications for the recently announced iPhone. Who will be allowed to play? How does it affect the ostensible competition? Will this end up feeling more like a phone with an iPod, a Mac with a phone, or something altogether different? (5:48)

I'm curious about the following...

I'm curious about the following on the iPhone:

  1. Voice recording ability for quick input - even with touchscreen, too slow for capturing ideas quickly.

  2. Handwriting recogition?? It was apparently built-in to OS X, is the functionality there for those who want it since the iPhone runs OS X?

  3. Still have yet to see how it integrates with iCal and displays calendar, todos, etc.

  4. Future compatibility with voice recognition and speech-to-text functionality.

  5. Durability - Nobody wants to fork out $500 for something that can't withstand normal wear-and-tear.

Just my 2 cents.

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. »
