I am only a wannabe tech-nerd, and a relatively recent Mac convert, but man — the iPhone looks pretty amazing!  When I heard the original announcement about the iPhone I thought, Big deal — a wireless phone that plays songs.  Isn’t that the deal with most cell phones these days?  And the price — sheesh!  If I could find any in stock, I could buy two Wii systems for this five hundred dollar price tag.  But then I watched this video introducing all of the features of the iPhone — all twenty minutes of it (I think I just broke through to a new level of nerditude).  And now I’m mad at Apple because it feels like this cursed iPhone is now an indispensable part of a happy future for me.

I realize that I will never need, or use, most of the features included on this phone (I have no stocks to check on, no need for merging someone from call waiting into my current conversation, etc.) but that will not stop me from obsessing over this blasted device.  Think of all the YouTube videos I could forward, and with such ease!  I can zoom in on my photo collection just by spreading out two fingers over the image?  Sign me up!  It’s even better than Conan imagined…
