iMania over the iPhone is about to be unleashed. As many have pointed out , there hasn’t been this much hype ahead of something ultimately disappointing since Windows ’95. As people go nuts – N-V-T-S, NUTS! – over this hyped iPod/phone/web appliance hybrid, Microsoft has yet again advanced U.S. innovation with a computer the size of a table. That’s right: a table.
Will the iPhone really be as fast as the commercials suggest? The stories about the AT&T internet service suggests not, as it is reported to have disappointing bitrates for downloading data. The vendor lock-in to AT&T – oh, crap, sorry: at&t – has also been quite controversial. I’ve never approved a piece of hardware that I can’t just take to the lowest bidder for service. It’s called “capitalism”. Well, so is vendor lock-in, I guess.
In response to Microsoft’s attempt to fire a cannonball across the wrong bow, “The Sarcastic Gamer” has released this parody of the Microsoft table-top computing ad. Using the video from Microsoft’s own website, he overdubbed this hilarious script. Check it out at YouTube .
