Last night I went to a meeting at the Creative Treehouse to plan for the big open house event. Happing June 30th at 6pm, go to their website for the latest details. While I was there we started talking about the iPhone. If you remember a few weeks back I posted about how I was not excited for this thing. And I still feel the same way today. I was trying to inform them that Apple will come out with a better iPhone in about 6 months after this one comes out. So they should wait to get one.

If you remember this was how it was in the iPod and the MacBook. Everyone ran out to get the new ones then 6 months later for the same price you can get and upgrade version. And I am not the only one that feels this way. The guy over a CrunchGear.com wrote a post about how the iPhone has planned obsolescence from the start. He points out a lot of the missing features and also Appleā€™s track record.

So it looks like even the experts say wait to get the iPhone, so great minds really do think alike. Its going to be hard not to jump on the band wagon, since it dose look amazing. But I can see dropping $500 on something that will be obsolete so quickly.

    I said wait too.
    Does that make me great?

    Eh, I dunno, if you follow the ‘wait’ mentality… well you should just not get one at all. Or anything for that matter.

    The minute something is released, it is already obsolete. I upgrade my computer hardware quite a bit and nothing sucks more than seeing something you paid XXX amount for drop 50% in price in just a few months.

    If you want the best of the best at any given time, you will pay a nice premium for it… knowing full well that something ‘better’ is just around the corner… :(
