Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

The new iPhone will be sold later this month and promises a lot of improvements over the previous versions, including better graphic displays, long promised multi-tasking, folders to organize apps, forward and rear facing cameras, and long awaited HD quality video recording.

Monday of this week Apple announced, and demonstrated the new iPhone called the iPhone 4. Smart move to drop the misnomer of using the cellular terminology like 3G.

The new iPhone will be sold later this month and promises a lot of improvements over the previous versions, including better graphic displays, long promised multi-tasking, folders to organize apps, forward and rear facing cameras, and long awaited HD quality video recording.

The biggest improvement to me is the inclusion of iMovIe for the iPhone. This is actually a huge, much looked over software addition to the iPhone. The ability to edit video on the fly with the iMovie flare is an amazing plus and could possibly sell me on upgrading to the iPhone 4.

On the other hand, AT&T’s abusive handling of us (their “valued” customers) is to be closely watched. Now AT&T is stating that if you are currently on a data plan through them and upgrade to the new iPhone, you will not have to lose your plans unlimited data package. But if you are a new customer or allow your plan to lapse, you will not have the option of getting the unlimited data package.

Apple has been my technology hero for the last few years, freeing me from the tyranny and horrible quality that has been the mark of Microsoft for many years prior. Now, seemingly, Apple has the upper hand and I just hope and pray that they are not going to go the tyrannical Microsoft way, offering us less services, more inferior products and yet just expecting us to pay through the nose because there is nothing better.

When the iPhone 4 goes on sale later this month, we will have to take a really good look at other phones and plans before opting the Apple/AT&T way, for fear that we are creating a fruity version of another dominating tech corporation with constant, forced re-booting blue screens of death as the consumer’s reward in the end.

I am curious what other iPhone users and non-users are thinking of doing now?
