this future has been a long time coming - the iPhone was predicted back in 1979... http://paullevinson.blogspot.com/2007/06/iphone-arrives.html

I've been doing that on my (now ancient) Sony w810 for a while. I got it specifically to free up pocket room. I can't wait to see what the future holds for portable media/cell phones. Hopefully more than 8gb very soon.

I've only had one gadget for phone/music/calendar/games for a while now: my Treo. I understand that the iPhone is different and is certainly novel in some ways, but what you described in this post isn't one of them. I'd find it more interesting to read about the truly innovative aspects, not ones that have been around for years on other gadgets.

Seems to me, that the iPhone is nothing more and nothing less than a really small laptop. It's not quite as good as a laptop, but that's what it's aiming at.

However, I'm sticking with Blackberry 8800 for myself. It's a more rounded product for my circumstances. The iPhone just lacks too many things that I want.

What would REALLY impress me? Someone to make an iPhone/Blackberry/F700 style device, that I can run iTunes on.

A phone (that is a phone first), with a 30+gb hard drive and a cut down version of Vista, so I can run iTunes and all my normal programs, with a slide-out keyboard like the F700, and GPS like the Blackberry, and I'd be happy as Larry to fork out £400. THAT would be a great tool.

Sure, the OS would take a while to boot, but how often would you turn it off?

    The Basics

    • I'm a father of three boys, husband of one wife, and author of eight books, and co-founder of three web sites. We spend most of the year in Marin County, California though I'm on the road a lot giving talks. (You can see the full story here.) Personal correspondence should go to sbeej68 at gmail dot com. If you're interested in having me speak at an event, drop a line to Wesley Neff at the Leigh Bureau (WesN at Leighbureau dot com.)

    My Books

    • : Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

      Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
      An exploration of environments that lead to breakthrough innovation, in science, technology, business, and the arts. I conceived it as the closing book in a trilogy on innovative thinking, after Ghost Map and Invention. But in a way, it completes an investigation that runs through all the books. Sold more copies in hardcover than anything else I've written.

    • : The Invention of Air

      The Invention of Air
      The story of the British radical chemist Joseph Priestley, who ended up having a Zelig-like role in the American Revolution. My version of a founding fathers book, and a reminder that most of the Enlightenment was driven by open source ideals.

    • : The Ghost Map

      The Ghost Map
      The latest: the story of a terrifying outbreak of cholera in 1854 London 1854 that ended up changing the world. An idea book wrapped around a page-turner. I like to think of it as a sequel to Emergence if Emergence had been a disease thriller. You can see a trailer for the book here.

    • : Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter

      Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
      The title says it all. This one sparked a slightly insane international conversation about the state of pop culture -- and particularly games. There were more than a few dissenters, but the response was more positive than I had expected. And it got me on The Daily Show, which made it all worthwhile.

    • : Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life

      Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life
      My first best-seller, and the only book I've written in which I appear as a recurring character, subjecting myself to a battery of humiliating brain scans. The last chapter on Freud and the neuroscientific model of the mind is one of my personal favorites.

    • : Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software

      Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
      The story of bottom-up intelligence, from slime mold to Slashdot. Probably the most critically well-received all my books, and the one that has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror.

    • : Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate

      Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate
      My first. The book I wrote instead of finishing my dissertation. Still in print almost a decade later, and still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there!
