iPhone is changing my life!

Wow, received my iPhone yesterday after a long unsatisfying union with Blackberry. I was always wary of switching away from the button keyboard since I’m such a heavy email and text user on my mobile device. But here I am on day 2, writing this post on the plane and, by the way, doing so on the airline’s wifi. Try doing that on your Blackberry. The keyboard is actually pretty good due in large part to Apple’s autocorrect technology. The iPhone web experience is captivating especially compared to the unusable interface on the BB Tour. Literally unusable.
And the apps! Some of my favorites:
Dropbox – a must for accessing and syncing all of your files
Yelp – especially if you travel. A great location aware app.
Tripit Pro – for road warriors keeps track of all travel and points and monitors flights real time.
Google – pretty cool picture recognition technology that enables search.
Google voice – read or listen to your voice mail, for free of course.
Nirvino wine and beer ratings – separate apps with huge databases
I have much more to explore but I’m hooked. Here’s a (humorous) good review of how I’m feeling.
