The Apple iPhone Is Finally Here!

MACWORLD SAN FRANCISCO—January 9, 2007—Apple® today introduced iPhone,
combining three products—a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen
iPod® with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications
device with desktop-class email, web browsing, searching and maps—into
one small and lightweight handheld device. iPhone introduces an
entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and
pioneering new software, letting users control iPhone with just their
fingers. iPhone also ushers in an era of software power and
sophistication never before seen in a mobile device, which completely
redefines what users can do on their mobile phones.

Check out this exclusive hands on play that the lucky boys over at Gizmodo had today. Bastards!

$30,000 and 5 months later…

We’re currently putting the finishing touches on our new home office. Those of you that have been reading for a few months will know that we had a veritable flood of sorts in the downstairs half of our house following a deluge of rain. Bad waterproofing done by a previous owner had left us with a very soggy ground floor level, and no insurance to cover repair costs.

Well, 5 months and $30,000 later, we’re ready to move back in. We’ve ordered our new office furniture which should be here in a week or so, and we’re very excited. Of course, I want to make it that extra special, and I’ve found a couple of things that will make it just that.

First off, we both have skype phone numbers now. We use it as a business line and for a variety of other online uses skype is just unbeatable. But we also don’t want heaps of phones downstairs, well here’s what I saw on Gizmodo today.

The Linksys CIT300..

It’s a dual-mode cordless phone that will do both my Skype calls and normal analog calls. One phone, two different systems. It’ll be great to have that set up and it will make life easier. Read the specs here.. Linksys CIT300

The other piece of hardware goodness comes via Belkin. My surge protector powerboards are currently ugly, ugly things. These new boards by Belkin are attractive and practical. I just have to decide which one I want. They come in three varieties: the Concealed, the Clamp-On, and the Compact. I’m leaning towards the just on aesthetics and form factor. Nice and tidy. I could show you pictures of all three, but you can just go here to do that. Make sure you check out the Concealed though..They sure look better than the mess of cables I currently have everywhere.
