||Nobody calls me, so I can't speak to what it's like making or taking calls.
last.fm / music integration. I realized a few years ago that it was simply easier for me to buy any and all video games I found myself interested in, rather than attempt to pirate them. (The final straw was when some group suggested I unplug the IDE cable to one of my drives.) Music - singles at least - are getting to be the same way for me because of this phone. I hate iTunes, as all right-thinking people should, but I really like getting a good song to pop-up in last.fm, making note of it, then listening to it a couple more times on the band's website or Youtube or something, and then just buying it. The bands I like are all broke (this isn't a hipster thing: they're kids and are untalented and broke; I certainly was at their age) (I mean to say I was both untalented AND broke, for purposes of clarification) so the idea that a few pennies get scattered their way is pleasing hmm yes.
App store. I really like browsing the free apps when I don't have anything else to do. This thing is going to pay for itself by lowering my blood pressure. I'm not saying that Colorado is a "slow" state, action-packed with the functionally retarded or anything, but I frequently find myself fantasizing about spree killing the people who get into the self-scan checkout line, which ceased being a good idea in this country a couple years ago. And not just because of the customers! The entire setup is horrible from a comp sci and design standpoint. Now, I spend that time downloading, like, a level for my iPhone. Not a level for a video game, but an actual level.
GUIs in general. They're just good on the thing, and it makes trying to go back to shitty GUIs even more painful than they are just on their own as shitty GUIs. My work computer is four years old, and now's not a real good time to be the squeaky wheel asking for a new one. It's already outdated and slow, having to deal with what Microsoft or Eclipse thinks is a workable user interface has become more frustrating since getting this phone.
WiFi. The thing is constantly trying to put me on a secure, wireless connection. I don't have any WEP keys. I'm not going to suddenly get some, either. I know I can turn this "feature" off, but ... well, there is no "but," this is a fairly weak complaint.
Suggested words for text messages: I texted the woman I'm a little sweet on today and was making fun of my own cooking. I wanted to use the word "delish," in order to sarcastically berate the "curry" I recently "made." The phone suggested "relish," instead. Since I was done typing the word I wanted, I hit the space bar... which in turn accepts the suggestion. I only caught it because the only pleasure currently in my life is the mild rush I get off reading my own posts/texts before submitting them, but look Apple people: you have no idea what kind of stress I am under, trying to make this, all of this, work. Don't get in my fucking way with text messages.
Custom text message "ring tones." To do this, Christ. I've got to get my phone attached to a wireless network (which I don't have at home), find the IP address, then FTP in and upload a new sound clip with the same name as one of the ones already in there. If the phone had tachyon support, I'd text this debacle of a process back to 1984 when they were making that Super Bowl ad, and (etc.) There's no way I'm doing this twice, so I'm paralyzed with fear until I can find a text message alert that I can stand to listen to for the rest of my life. I'm going to have to go into a Starbucks to get a free WiFi connection to pull this off, so if it helps anyone out there, you can imagine every single pretentious pile of shit sitting in a Starbucks, waving their iPhone around like some sort of prick, has cat-5 cable strewn all over their house.
the dark and gritty...Ice Cream Jonsey!
