Yes, the feedback on the newly released iPhone has been overwhelmingly positive but for those
of you who aren\u2019t happy unless you\u2019re unhappy, cheer up! Here\u2019s a list of software, hardware,
and Tupperware letdowns that prove the iPhone falls a wee bit short of perfect.
(And if you have anything else to add to the list, feel free\u2026 because doing my job for myself is
so very inconvenient.)
1) The Barry Allen disappearance; there\u2019s no Flash, or Java for that matter; making watching
web videos more a miss than hit on iPhones.
2) Pixel envy \u2013 you\u2019ll have it with your iPhone camera. The 2 megapixel camera is a little
bland with 5 megapixel camera phones now available and the other kind of flash and zoom is
also missing. There\u2019s also no secondary camera for self portraits, so you can\u2019t get narcissistic
with your bad self.
3) You can ring my bell; but only 25 different ways. You can\u2019t import more or use your MP3s as
ringtones, meaning you\u2019re at the mercy of Steve Jobs\u2019 personal taste AND he still hasn\u2019t secured
the rights to Beatles songs. Be afraid, be very afraid.
4) He got game and it be chess. That\u2019s the most graphics heavy game included with the iPhone;
what was Pong too complicated?
5) There\u2019s no third party applications allowed on the iPhone; with Steve Jobs suggesting that
developers use the Safari web browser and AJAX to simulate them on the internet. Yes, he
actually claimed that was just as good as allowing
third party applications with a
6) I\u2019m not saying AT&T\u2019s ancient EDGE network is too slow for internet browsing, but there are
unsubstantiated reports that the dinosaurs when extinct waiting for a page to load on it.
7) Something like one in ten of the initial iPhones bought was defective. While that number will
obviously go down after the initial launch; that really sucks for the people who were waiting in
line nine hours.
