The New York Post gets it right:
TENS of thousands of people are expected to line up this Friday for the most hyped gadget of the decade - the iPhone.Wally-world Mossberg gets it wrong:
Don't be one of them.
"the iPhone is, on balance, a beautiful and breakthrough handheld computer... the iPhone is a whole new experience and a pleasure to use."David Pogue pulls his head out of Steve Jobs' ass long enough to finally publish the review he's been sitting on for months:
"...the iPhone is still the most sophisticated, outlook-changing piece of electronics to come along in years. It does so many things so well, and so pleasurably, that you tend to forgive its foibles."And Steven Levy of Newsweek should be fired for consorting with the enemy. Whatever happened to journalistic ethics? This guy clearly got paid to write this glowing "review":
" 'Everyone we talk to hates their phones—it’s universal,' Steve Jobs told me on a call to my iPhone a couple of days ago. (The control-freaky Apple CEO was just checking up to see how I was doing.)Of course, none of this means anything until I post my comprehensive 20,000-word review on the Windows Supersite. Obviously.
"iPhone is a significant leap. It’s a superbly engineered, cleverly designed and imaginatively implemented approach to a problem that no one has cracked to date: merging a phone handset, an Internet navigator and a media player in a package where every component shines, and the features are welcoming rather than foreboding. The iPhone is the rare convergence device where things actually converge."
