  • Tom and Steph share some of their favorite iPhone apps. Tom has already found a couple of handy ones after only three days of having his phone!
  • The Find My iPhone app works pretty well.

  1. A few weeks ago I was talking to Tom and he sounded like he wasn't that interested in an iPhone. Now he sleeps with one…that's hilarious!

    For Tom, about the charger. Do you think that you might have plugged the iPhone into a an old firewire adapter? It fits in the phone. I did that to one of my iPods and it had results similar to what he described.

    Now some on Kindle. First, the reason that you guys have not talked about it, is the price of the books. On Kindle the books are $7-$9 even for new books, which would be $20-$25 normally. So you save money with every book.

    Site unseen? I even had problems with that. However, I figured out that Sony makes a competing model that uses the same technology (and the same size screen as the first Kindle). Anyway, they carry it at the stores, and I went to Target (not affiliated with Target) to see it. I was very impressed with it, but realized it needed to be bigger so I waited. But if you want to check one out, that's a good way to go. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servle

    As for who is buying it. Well, here is some interesting information: http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/02/03/is-the-kindl

    It sounds like more people than expected are actually buying them.

    So far I have been happy with mine. I tend to read for 30-45 minutes a day when I go to bed. I have had it about 9 days, and I shut off the wireless after I downloaded a book. So far the icon is still indicating it is fully charged. I am going to see how long it will go on one charge with wireless off. Then I'll try with wireless on. I like the screen a lot, it is easy to read. There are a few ergonomic type things I might change, but over all I really like it!
