Religious experience.
I have now played with the iPhone.
Oh my Gods... So very cool.

the heavens open and you hear.

AH, ah AH, uh, AH......

BTW, there is a reason I haven't place my hands on the little diety of technology... I know my addiction.

Pretty much. I like that I can type and use the dual-touch screen ibnterface with one hand. I was worried about that a little.

THough I do really hate that the YouTube app forces you into a certain landscape mode. YouTube videos open up in landscape mode assuming you're a right handed user and turning into landscape via extending your left hand outward.

hmm.. hard to explain. So the iPhone is in your left hand, upright. |
You extend your left hand out and leftward to go into landscape. <-- = __ The iPhone sits across the tops of your fingers. That is how they assume you're holding it. The YT video is oriented correctly.

But, you turn your hand the opposite way when you hold it in your right hand and go to landscape mode. Because YT assumes left hand users, my YT videos are upside down which makes me flip it over to watch.

Small problem but I don't understand why they don't use the built-in accelerometer to let the user choose which direction they're viewing the video.

This, I can actually understand.
As someone that writes right handed but does just about everything else left handed... I understand.

That think stood up longer than some of his other blended items. It is a hardy machine.

I know! I was totally impressed how long it stayed on and together!

Now I wonder what Ismoke smells like.

BTW, the Blendtec corporation are my marketing heroes.

Viral marketing is ingenious for our zeitgeist.
