video backing up all my points. If you choose to not watch the video, ignore everything and jump on the iphone hype wagon then thats fine, but that does not change the facts.
The iPhone is a neat gadget phone... that's about it. Business functionality wise, it's crap. Would be good for a Car thing tho I guess... unless you want good ms exchange support.
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
apple. I own a 80gig ipod. I'm speaking based on facts. I do a lot of research on smart phones. I always like to have the latest and best smart phone. I was planning to buy an iphone when it came out because I thought it was going to be great due to all the hype. I did my research and found out it was crap and did not waste my time with it.
On the other hand tho it sounds like your an apple fanboy. I made a 40 min video showing in detail why the iphone is no where near as advanced as other things around, you chose to not watch the video and reply with negative comments. thats what fanboys do.
I wont mind if you watch the video and replied based on that, but you didn't. its a 40 minute long video showing lots of detailed features yet you reply 10 minutes after I make the post with negative comments.
Apple's hype machine to sell my apps, but I kind of like the simple, elegant design. It's also plenty powerful (it's essentially OS X underneath it all) for the things most people need it to do. Sure, I could do more on another platform, but I don't think most people need it to do more (myself included).
I think, though, the point of this thread isn't so much replacing the carpc with the iPhone, but rather replacing the carpc with a mobile device. CarPC hobbyists, if they choose to go the mobile platform route, will probably want a hardware agnostic solution. I think bugbyte started with iPhone simply because he's a bit of an Apple junky. If you (lasteclispe) had started this thread, I suppose you would have suggested using the Sprint Mobile something or another. Then some troll would write in with "proof" that your chosen platform was cr@p. And they would have missed the point of your post as well.
We could keep the thread about mobile platforms in general, but as a practical matter, when you want to solve implementation problems, you have to pick something, anything, just to see what those problems are. If you want to pick a different platform, then start your own thread and leave us ignorant iPhone hackers to wallow in our backwater implementation.
videos. I tried. I really did.
To the admin: I don't know how they moderate the forums on this site, but I would vote for this whole tangent to be removed (including this message) as it is completely irrelevant to the thread. I'll do my part by not responding any more, but that last one was just too much to ignore.
