I don’t often GUSH about Apple. I try not to, at least. Most of the time I try to take a critical look at things and try to figure out what’s wrong with them before what’s right about them. Perhaps I’m just naturally negative – but stilling here 12 or so hours after the fact, I can’t help but be ecstatic about yesterday’s Roadmap event.
Apple if fine with VoIP, Apple is fine with free apps, Apple is fine with just about anything as long as its legal – Apple is being very cool about what it’s going to allow on the iPhone.
Developers have to be going insane – I can’t wait to see what people come up with. There will be some truly amazing stuff on the iPhone, there’s no doubt about it – but yesterday’s announcement took the iPhone and iPod Touch to a completely new level.
Before they were a great phone, and a great media player – now…now they’re something completely different.
I’m not even sure what to call it – but we’ve NEVER seen applications like we’re going to see on the iPhone/iPod Touch before. These things are two steps away from being Star Trek PADDS.
I can’t find anything to complain about here. I can’t find anything that I think was a bad move…the only thing that I can even come close to griping about is having to wait until JUNE!
I’m fanboy levels of excited – and I don’t get that way often.
How about you? Do you think this was a great move, or do you have reservations? Sound off in the comments below.
