For as long as you’ve been carrying around a cellphone, you’ve been carrying around a social network in your pocket. And it’s your most important social network. But you probably don’t realize it. Your address book.
For years, you didn’t realize it because the original cellphones pre-dated the online social movement and there was no way that carriers or OEMs were going to come up with those concepts on their own. Then smartphones came around, but everyone was still unable to put two and two together. Even when the iPhone launched, Apple clearly didn’t understand the potential power of your contact list connected to the network.
The phone address book concept has simply moved from device to device to device being totally under utilized along the way. The fact that we still refer to it as an “address book” is even silly. That’s why Everyme excites me.
The weird thing is that they’ve been too small since the very first beta of iOS 5 several months ago. Apple had a lot of time to change them, and they didn’t. That’s not an oversight, that’s a decision. Let’s hope they change their minds.
After all this time we finally have a date its October 4, and Apple isn’t even being shy about the matter with the invite to the event says “Let’s talk iPhone”. At least this puts all these rumors of dates and release times, though we are talking about the iPhone on Tuesday this week, now the big question is when it goes for sale and lets pay us folks of the north don’t have to wait for 2 months after the American release. Now to be fair I don’t think the street date of the iPhone 5 will be that long after the 4th of October, I give it a week after the 4th, all and all I just hope they don’t shit all over the iPhone and make it look like shit-make it look like the 4, its a great look, but thats me. Also means its almost time for iSO, I’m excited to have the new revamped iTunes to play with, re download all my old bought songs that I thought I lost after a few bad trips with my old iPhone. Lets hope this new phone is beyond epic :).
