  1. Andrew,

    Have you actually used an iPhone for more then two minutes, or seen someone other then a n00b use one.

    By far the best UI ANYWHERE. There is a VERY elegant way to search for contacts, just a little swipe DOWN in the contact list and you’ll find a search box to start with! You don’t have to swipe through the list.

    I understand that this level of detail, elegance and thoughtful polish eludes the 733t Linux hax0rz but we’ll forgive.

    See you guys at PodCamp Toronto!

  2. Bill,

    I’ve got to track Andrew down and make sure he sees your retort. You’re welcome to come on Dys69 this Sunday and respond in person. I’ll referee!

  3. Hi Bill, thanks for posting your comment…

    Before we continue, you need to read this to know where I’m coming from.

    Re: The new search function in the address book, I was not aware of that. Thanks.

    I won’t comment on your digs at Linux, and I will say that the iPhone is a great choice for someone who’s new to advanced mobile technology.

    But I myself have yet to see anything on an iPhone that makes me any less dismissive of it. If you want to demo something for me at PodCamp I’d certainly be up for that.

    Hey, that “See you in Toronto” wasn’t a threat or anything, was it…?
