    Re: Get on the list for an iPhone

    I wonder if I'd be able to read any of the damn buttons in sunlight.

    But other phones on the market are crap. Even if you get the option of a
    few services you don't need, Apple makes good products.

    Yet history shows us that it won't be Apple that solves the problem of short
    battery life...

    Still, I want that phone. This from a guy who last used a Mac maybe 15 years
    ago. I had no desire for an iPod, but this, I want.

    I've got an anti-glare screen protector on my Treo. Works pretty well to
    make it easier to view screen in bright sunlight.

    I have a V180. Darn hard to read the screen in direct sunlight. Possible, but it's pretty faded out.

    You obvously don't live in Denver! It's sunny as blazes here today,
    reflecting off of two feet of leftover snow. Driving without sunglasses
    on a day like today is hazardous!

    Sorry, I don't remember my high-school physics courses as well as I should,
    but does the sun somehow dim itself in the winter? ;-)

    I wont say it's not a cool device but I agree it's definitely gonna rape
    your battery. You'll probably need to charge it while at work, in the car
    and at home if you really use it for music/video and phone.

    Personally, I think pda/mp3/phone is a good enough. But I'm sure the younger
    jr/highschool niche will make good use of the video playback during bus
    rides to/from school, break etc. If there was a way to install software
    equivilent to microsoft streets and trips on it I would definitely buy. I
    don't care for subscription gps. Subscription gps is okay on a device that
    has limited memory but this almost a full blown pc.

    Whoever equated winter with gray may have been from the midwest, where
    the sun is dulled most of hte season does with the help of the usual
    wintery cloud cover.

    But hell, even in Chicago it's a blue sky scene today though colder
    than a witch's tit.

    I have every faith in the engineers at Apple to have taken very seriously the need for a readable display in all conditions. I imagine the ambient light sensor will darken the screen quite well. I also would be surprised if the multi-touch screen were not polarized as well.
