iphone An interesting opinion piece on kottke.org can be summarized as: the iPhone is taking over the world. Arguing that between the iPhone’s built-in functionality and the myriad of apps developed for it, the iPhone is going to win the fight for consumers limited pocket and purse space, and many devices (and thus, companies) are doomed as a result. The readers digest version for those of you who don’t want to read the entire article says the following devices are either now or going to be in direct competition with Apple:

* Mobile phones (duh)
* PDA’s
* iPod (duh)
* Power and shoot cameras
* Personal computer
* Nintendo DS
* PSP
* GPS (duh)
* Flip video camera
* Compass (disagree based on personal experience)
* Watch (yup)
* Portable DVD Player
* Kindle
* Pedometer
* Tape recorder
* Heart monitor
* Calculator
* Remote control

    iPhone 3.1 could stop it in its tracks if Apple doesn’t pull out its fingers and release a new update fast to fix all the problems (I am one iPhone owner whose device has been ruined by 3.1 among many).

    But then, the idea that the iPhone is going to defeat all opposition is rubbish because it costs so much, whether pay monthly or pay as you go. Prices from a few hundred pounds up to over half a grand are not cheap in any currency (well, apart from Zimbabwe of course – but over there it probably costs 100,000 trillion Zimbabwean dollars… Or is that the price of a loaf there…?).
