It seems everyone is talking about the iPhone these days, including Dave Eggers' hip literary journal McSweeney's. McSweeney's writer Darren Cahr offers some interesting and creative ways to make use of the iPhone.Among Cahr's more amusing suggestions:

XIII. Using the iPhone to take pictures of celebrities without underpants

XXIII. Using the iPhone to attain inner peace

XXIV. How to change the iPhone's battery
