Particularly in light of the recent release of the iPhone from Apple the blogosphere and the media world is abuzz with speculation. Most of the press is solid and essentially predicts that the iPhone is a world changing device. The minority (but a vocal one at that) is naysayers that are nit picking the iPhones features, capabilities and selection of Cingular as a network provider to try to support the position that the product will fail.
I subscribe to the position that the iPhone is revolutionary and is an indicator that Apple will bring this forward as a platform with huge adoption by the masses as a result.
When I tire of reading the thin and cursory analysis presented by most of the Apple and Apple related technology ‘pundits’, I often rehome my browser to www.roughlydrafted.com a blog authored by Daniel Eran a consultant and technical writer in San Francisco CA. He is insightful and well written and most importantly his analysis is well thought out and referenced.
In the area of the iPhone faults, Daniel has written a piece called the Ten Myths of the iPhone. It is well worth reading. I refer you there and suspect that after you read this and a few of his other works roughlydrafted will be on your regular Internet stops for well constructed technical articles.
