E.T., iPhone Home…

Apple logoMan, is it just me or has this iPhone frenzy gotten a little out of hand?

Heck, even E.T. has probably heard of the goddamn thing by now. From a more earthly perspective, it seems that everyone has already been acquainted with the new Apple iPhone. Yes, it is sexy as hell, but I’d still take Jessica Alba any day.

In the last day or so, I’ve read about a bajillion posts hyping this mobile device. Yes, yes, I know it’s sweet, but wipe that drool off your lap. Is this truly the next killer mobile device?

When the Motorola Razr hit the market, every teen and twenty-something wanted their hands on one. The craze quickly sputtered out. My guess is that this iPhone launch will dwarf the launch of any mobile device to date - by far.

    My guess is that the Motorola Q and other cell phones will fail to meet expectations again in the near future, as the iPhone suffocates the market. Obviously, I’m over-exaggerating, but there is some truth to the statement.

    All bow to thy holy iPhone!

    A great phone for those who want the best.

    It looks like they didn’t have full rights to the name though. Be interesting to see what happens with this:
