Editor's Note: A Weekend With An iPhone -- I Hope
What are you doing this weekend? As I write this, it's Friday
morning, and I'm hoping I'll be working this weekend, posting
image galleries and writing reviews of the iPhone. Of course, to
do that, I need to get my hands on an iPhone.
I am doing one trick to improve my odds: I work from a home
office in a town called La Mesa, Calif. It's right on the San
Diego city limits. If I drive west, I quickly reach the city --
San Diego, which is just crawling with Mac enthusiasts. If I
drive east, I arrive just as quickly in horse-farming country and
desert. So I'm going to head east first in search of my iPhone; I
figure if you have a horse (or are one), chances are you aren't
interested enough in an iPhone to line up Friday night to buy one.
Once I get the iPhone -- assuming I do -- I'll head straight home
and, of course, I'll take it out of the box right away. And I'll
take unboxing photos, too, and we'll run an image gallery of that
as soon as we can get the images posted.
Then, when that's done, I'll roll up my sleeves and start
evaluating the iPhone. I'll write my review, create another image
gallery, and hopefully get the whole thing posted by Sunday or
first thing Monday morning.
Eye On iPhone
Late yesterday, Apple and AT&T began selling the iPhone, the most
hyped technology product in years. The device is notable in that
it combines a cell phone, a Web browser, and a media player with
a touch-screen interface. Despite Apple's success with the
Macintosh computer and the iPod, it remains to be seen how
customers will respond to the iPhone. InformationWeek presents
this collection of stories, blogs, and images so you can make an
informed decision for yourself or your company. informationweek.com/mobile/iphone/
What To Do When Windows Vista Crashes: Little-Known Recovery Strategies
Because Microsoft's new operating system is bigger than its
predecessors, it's more of a pain to reinstall. Here are some

if you encounter fatal startup errors. informationweek.com/news/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=200000329
