No. "External HD? You're an *****."
Yes. "Heck ya! Hymerschmidt, you're my messiah!"
Huh? "I just got home from work, packed a bowl, and can't string together a coherent thought."
Who cares?! I like to sing. "John Jacob Jingle Hymer Schmidt, that's my name too..."
iPhone as an External HD
I know there are apps out there that already do this, but I badly, bad-ly, want this functionality.
Only when installed on all the machines used, do these third-party apps work. Which almost negates the coolness of an external drive(planning is for squares!).
And the only workaround is ghetto. It involves saving the app as a photo, then doing a photo transfer, then opening the app and proceeding. I want the iPhone to have a disk-mode like my iPod. Easy, simple, clever. One device to rule them all. All that jazz.
Do you want your iPhone to function as an external drive?

That is a good idea. I have a 4gb iPhone right now and I never have it filled up. I usually have about a gig of space left, and it would be nice to store files on it for on the go stuff, like word docs or whatever, that way I dont have to email them to myself.
P.S. I don't think you are my messiah. That's just crazy.

I doubt Apple will make the iPhone as an External HD. Even at 16GB with music, videos, and pictures; you're looking at a few GB to use. And who doesn't have a flash drive already to move their stuff? They'd also want you to buy MobileMe to use iDisk. Which actually looks interesting, but I don't know if it would be worth the $99 price tag.

...Hey, deities can have a sense of humor too. The truth is I don't really decide anything, my Father does. I spend most of my time partying in the 11th dimension; wild place... And the whole thing about the external HD is: my sheet doesn't have pockets. So, I can't really be carrying around a flash drive. Why would you want to if you didn't have to?
