So I’m finally back after spending a week with my old man who came to visit. Had a blast and got to do some local traveling, fishing and relaxing.
The other night I was watching TV and i seen this commercial for Verizon Wireless and it had me laughing hysterically. Seems to me that Verizon is a little bitter about the exclusive contract that Apple has with AT&T and in my opinion rightfully so. I have to give them credit though, they were able to walk the fine line of copyright infringement and at the same time clearly state their case.
I personally respect apple products for their specific uses (Audio Recording, Video Editing, etc…) but i still have a hard time recommending them as an everyday computer due to their price and the grip Steve Jobs somehow maintains on his customers balls.
Over the past few months I have toyed with the idea of getting the IPhone. I’m usually on the move and like to have access to my e-mail and other gadgets while I’m out and about. I currently have an IPod Touch but that is only good when I have an open wireless connection.
I talked to several people in the area who were pretty disappointed with the “3G” coverage that AT&T claims they have throughout the United States, and this has deferred me from switching from my current Verizon carrier to AT&T. The bad side is who knows how long it will be before Apple moves to a different carrier.
Do any of you guys currently use an Iphone or iPod touch? If so what is your experience with the IPhone and AT&T? I’m just looking for some more objective info before i decide whether to make the switch.
