What a day… Wow.
So, Euro ’08 first. We have Romania – France : 0 – 0. Quite an ugly game on both sides, but at least we survived it well. On the other hand, a beautiful show of football (yes, football, DEAL WITH IT!), The Netherlands just blew Italy way with an amazing 3-0. Wow, kudos to the Dutch, superb counter-attack! Now, I am anxiously awaiting the Romania – Italy match on Friday, a decisive game for either team. Good luck guys, you’ll need it!
On the other hand, back in the geek world, we have WWDC and Steve Jobs presenting the amazing new iPhone. I must say, if I immediately fell in love with the interface of the first iPhone, but in the end decided against buying it for lack of features and an unjustified price, this one is simply irresistible (yes irresistible, meaning that I’m trying to resist it but I CAN’T). Add the new and exciting MobileMe technology (finally SOMEBODY heard our screams of anguish and found a solution for syncing and backing up stuff nicely) and the price tag that is just blowing the competition way (not to mention MY MIND) and you have yourself a little marvel. Sure, it has its bugs. It doesn’t seem to be able to record video and Mr. Jobs didn’t share with us exactly how quickly the battery will die if you dare use both 3G and GPS. The material is probably inferior quality (replacing metal with plastic is never a good idea), I’m sure some stuff will not work exactly as advertised, the test results might be a bit exaggerated, but honestly, I would not want to be Nokia’s or RIM’s CEO right now (wouldn’t mind having some stock in Apple though). Suddenly, I understand how and why one could camp out to buy a gadget the day it comes out. Steve, I admit it publicly, you’ve captured my heart with a plastic box in a way I thought only beautiful women could. As much as I dislike many of Apple’s policies, I must say, it’s slowly but surely becoming my #1 choice for products. Keep it up for as long as you can and the sky is the limit!
If everyday of my life had this much excitement in it, I would probably completely quit energizing drinks!
Who needs caffeine when you have news like that?
