iPhone Gizmo got it right! No iPhone Nano in the lime light at the MacWorld fantastic this year. And, as predicted the spotlight was on a new design drama - the thinnest laptop in the world has now made its debut!!
The “Air” is well and truly being buzzed about all over the web, so iPhoneGizmo will move on to other Macworld announcements:
More importantly, what did we iPhone users get? ……..TA DA!!
For a mere $3-$4 a pop we can watch some great DVDs .
But wait, there’s more..
“A pop” turns out to be 24 hours. Now I am guessing there are some serious commuters out there who like to spend some of their travel time (like me) watching movies, videos, listening to music …. That $3 is going to add up real fast to a LOT of dosh! If this were the only way to get movies then I would get excited about Steve Job’s big …TA DA!
BUT, frankly, whilst it IS going to be great for Apple - it is a POOR deal for us!
There are already several membership sites offering ten times as many movies for a minimal joining fee (about two weeks worth of Apple rentals) and you get to KEEP the movies! (By the way Apple skims over this little nugget by selling users on the “don’t need a computer” con. Oh, don’t get me wrong. You DON’T need a computer because you don’t get to KEEP the movie!
So, conclusion? The Air is exciting and desirable (and our next laptop!)
The iPhone movie deal is a steal - from us!!
iPhone Gizmo is not impressed!!
