If I See One More Article On The iPhone..

June 29, 2007

The iPhone must be the most overhyped piece of technology in the history of mankind.

It launches in stores and online (click on the pictures for the online store link) at 6pm today and promises to ring up huge day one sales.
Then again, the overpriced Playstation 3 also rang up insane sales on its first day and is now rotting on store shelves.

Apple’s stock price has gone up by over 40% since the iPhone’s unveiling, adding 34 BILLION DOLLARS to their market cap!

If sales in the coming weeks don’t match expectations, AAPL may very well come tumbling down.

All this for a phone that:

-Will only be featured on a single US carrier.

-Claims to be a “widescreen ipod”, yet only has a fraction of the memory found in a regular ipod, and does not allow for memory cards.

-Claims to be a “revolutionary phone”, but doesn’t even have a removable battery. That means no spares, and it means that once the life-cycle of the battery comes and goes and it no longer holds a charge, you’re up a creek without a paddle!

-Claims to be a “breakthrough internet device”, yet it runs on the archaic and VERY SLOW 2nd Generation (EDGE) data network. The New York Times reported that just to load took a full 2 minutes. “You almost ache for a dial-up modem.” The iPhone will not be able to be upgraded to a faster, more recent, data network. (Yes, it has wi-fi, but if you are in a wi-fi hotspot, wouldn’t you be using a laptop to be surfing the web? It’s when you leave the hotspot’s that you need fast internet on your phone!)

-Lacks a physical hard keypad for dialing/typing.

-Will require a 2 year contract, yet at $500-$600, will cost more than a top of the line ipod and smartphone together!

In my opinion the iPhone is THE “Jack of all trades, master of none.”

I could very possibly be dead wrong and have to eat my words, but I think that Steve Jobs has finally “jumped the shark”…

Reminder: You Must Register And Book The Paid Tickets For This Amazing Promo By 06/30 (11:59pm MT)!!!

Book travel with your Jetblue Business Amex to save 5%, get double Trueblue points, and make your trueblue points never expire!

Save 3% on Jetblue tickets and get Starpoints/Skymiles by using a Starwood or Delta business amex…

The Amex 3-5% savings is rebated back to you on your statement.

Who’s up for a mileage run?!?
Fly from PIT-JFK, or anywhere else for that matter, and you’ll fly free to any Jetblue city!
Registration Linky

The cheapest ticket that I could find was from PIT-JFK for $39+ Each way ($98 including all taxes)
Here is Jetblue’s interactive route map, which can show you all non-stop and connecting options.

This unreal offer is in response to the still low traffic numbers for Jetblue in Pittsburgh, where people have some sort of strange love exclusively reserved for USeless Airways.

This offer was alerted to me by 2 Pittsburghers from a Pittsburgh-Post Gazette article.
That article just says that you get a free ticket by booking on neglects to mention that you NEED TO REGISTER FIRST, or even how to register!
(Insert Pittsburgh newspaper joke here…)

Post-Gazette Article Linky

Previous Post Linky “Jetblue: “We’re Still Looking For Signs Of Life In Pittsburgh…”

-Register and book a roundtrip ticket by 06/30/07 (11:59pm MT)
Travel must be completed by 11/15/07.
-Travel must originate in Pittsburgh.
-After travel is completed (just buying the ticket is not enough!) you will receive 100 Trueblue points, which is automatically converted into 2 one-way systemwide vouchers.
-Vouchers expire 12 months from when they are converted from points into vouchers
-You must sign up for a Trueblue account to register.
-Limit one bonus per Trueblue account.
-Offer does not apply to previously booked travel.
-The free ticket does not have to include Pittsburgh.

I noticed another slight inaccuracy in the article which says,
“Travelers who book flights through will receive 100 TrueBlue points at the conclusion of their travel, which can be redeemed for a free trip anywhere JetBlue flies. JetBlue serves 54 cities with up to 575 daily flights. The TrueBlue points will expire in one year from the date of issuance.”
Actually the 100 points that you get after flying automatically becomes 2 one-way vouchers, and those vouchers expire in 12 months.

Major hat tip to Marty C. and Yisroel C.
