I took a look at the iPhone when I stopped by the new Apple Store at Bayshore. It’s a nice device. I’m not about to replace my Nokia 7610 and 5th Gen iPod with it, but I can see the appeal of this device.
Sadly, as with many location-based services, we in the Midwest have some, uh, issues. The iPhone was easily able to locate San Francisco, but couldn’t find Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. I know we’re not in Silicon Valley, but we still exist out here. I know at least one person in Milwaukee with an iPhone. I should ask him how the location stuff works here. He’s already mentioned that he’s aware that it’s a 1.0 device, but it’s still freakin’ amazing.
