And the same goes for the MSFT fan, whose name I won't mention until he comes back to post. I understand you don't like the product, but you also can't seem to see both sides. The iPhone is a refreshing design and concept change over what we see all the time.

I actually enjoy posting here (right now anyway). It's fun. I didn't always enjoy it though as history shows - it seems I am continually beat up and kicked out for being right when others are wrong. Like the memory issue of the 650 a couple years back (first to complain and illustrate the problems but met with disbelief) and the possibility of wi-fi on the 650 (I was the only person that realized it was never going to happen - remember the Shadowmite threads) and also the Palm licensing issue a year or so ago and also many other issues. I was always right but it was never accepted at the time.
Do I get any acknowledgement. No. All I get is berated and banned.
I think I like posting here because I am always right and no one can see it. :evil:

^ and that (above) is much of the cause of all of this. i agree; Archie's original/beginning posts were nothing more than being supportive of a new device that was being introduced into the marketplace. after that, some turned it into a war and went to all lengths to diminish, discredit, demean, mock and belittle anything he (and many others including myself) had to say.
i don't blame him/her for fighting back. other's tactics are dirty at best while being very good to disguise their words and posts in a brighter light.
i've never seen such an attempt to discredit a device that doesn't even really exist. i think that some here have gotten so tired of the miserable failures that Palm has handed them that they find some false sense of victory by diminishing what it was that they wish their Palm could have been.

Well, archie is painfully ignorant of some things. I don't think anyone begrudges his opinion, it's just that he states many things as fact that just aren't so.
Frankly, I think this whole board should be closed; it serves no beneficial purpose that I can see.

i will agree to a certain extent. i personally believe that he/she (archie) doesn't make anything up but he/she might state what is not fact but just about every opponent of the device has done the same. why do i say?
it doesn't exist in its final form.

They are being a bit tough on the IPhone, arnt they?
But because of the iPhone's attractive form factor, executives are likely to start buying it when it becomes available in June in the U.S., and tech departments need to head them off at the pass by issuing policies that forbid iPhones from being connected to networks, Enderle said. If executives insist on connecting iPhones, then the IT department has a duty to report the violation since it could mean that Sarbanes-Oxley or other compliance rules have been broken, Enderle said.

Of course you may not mind that, but thats hardly typical.

There are places I don't take my treo and places where the iPhone (and Treo) wouldn't do everything I need.
No, I'll use the others for different purposes.
I use the shuffle for running and skiing...or if I'm somewhere where I want music but wouldn't want something I have to be careful with like a fragile iPod or Treo or iPhone (beach, pool, mountains).
I use the iPod as my complete media library and it generally stays in the car.
The iPhone like the Treo would only hold a small amount of music/tv/movie by comparison. I'd carry the iPhone 90% of the time and use the others as needed.
If they made an 80gb iPhone then I'd ditch the iPod. Obviously that's not going to happen for a while.

Again, paying $300 for something you are only planning to use 10% of the time seems expensive and atypical. Of course its likely you don't mind the value for money issue, but I don't expect most Ipod users completely disregard this.

That's one reason I prefer the hard drive iPod(or Creative, Archos, Cowon), despite the Nano being more popular. Way more storage! I will probably have about 15GB(when I get around to ripping ALL my favorite sounds) in music and even more GB in videos I'd like to carry around.
- 02-07-2007, 04:08 PM #47
Not to drag things out even more, but I've heard most people's music collection are around 4 GB, and I expect Ilounge members are not typical Ipod users. Anyway, its just speculation, and I'm sure we will just have to wait and see.
- 02-07-2007, 04:14 PM #48
I already have 2GB of my favorite songs on there and I have so much more, I am too lazy to rip everything! But I seriously suspect about 15GB for everything should be about how it ends up. Maybe I'm exaggerating and it's 8, but I use high kbps. encoding. That also adds to the size. Everything's coming up 8-12MB.
