So I was able to hold off a whole week before touching an actual iPhone. I came really close on the 29th to getting in a line to buy an iPhone. I knew that if I went to an Apple Store and touched one, I would want to own one of these beautifully crafted marvels of technology!
Well today I had to go to the Apple Store to pick up an iMac that was in for repair. While there I ran into Brian Parker who is the Business Sales guy for the Irvine Apple Store. He asked if I had one and I said not yet. I then looked over at the table where the iPhones where and said, “…yeah, that table has been swamped all day eh?”
Brian then reached into his back pocket and handed me his iPhone and said “Go at it…”.
I said “For real??”
From the first touch, it was like magic. I did everything on this iPhone. The one thing I didn’t get off the bat was the pinching action to zoom into a page or photo. After a few tries though, I got it. Typing was natural for me, more natural than I thought. I guess all that oogling online and on TV paid off, seeing it being used on TV paved the way for me to get it right!
This phone is magic I tell you.
