PodTech’ers review iPhone on TwitterGram

James McCormick, PodTech's COO, with his iPhone

Hmmm, I like TwitterGram. It can only be 200kb in size, so you only have somewhere around 30 seconds to record a little message. Product reviews done this short force people to get to the point. I asked James McCormick, our COO at PodTech, to give us his thoughts on his new iPhone (he got it yesterday).

Anyway, I just put a bunch of cool stuff on my link blog. Tried to keep the number of iPhone items down there.

UPDATE: Paul Sherer, PodTech’s business development manager, was in line on Friday and got an iPhone. So here’s his TwitterGram review of the iPhone.

UPDATE2: Got some more TwitterGram reviews from employees and people hanging out at PodTech.

Sam Levin showing off his leather "inCase" case

Sam Levin, director of social media here, talks about iPhone and admits he’s a case fanatic.

Patrick Scoble with an ugly Speck case

Patrick Scoble gives his thoughts on his “iPhone case” which really looks like a condom. Pretty ugly.

I still need to get Maryam, Valerie, and a few others who’ve gotten iPhones. Rocky got an iPhone but refuses to open it. — says he’s going to keep it as a collector’s item. What a weirdo! :-)

  1. I’m afraid I hate TwitterGram. I am getting message after message from you which is content-free and provides no means to decide if I am interested in the link it includes. Not that I can listen to them anyway since they arrive as SMS on my phone. I’ll have to reluctantly drop you from my contact list on Twitter if they keep arriving.

  3. I hate to do this, but I will buy this to replace my RAZR.

    It’s about the same price as the iPhone, except it’s programmable and comes with a debugger. Trolltech released it’s greenphone last year, but it was anything but free (QT).
    As Linux is to PC users, Linux based open phones will be to telecom. The price can only go down from here. I read that they cracked the root and user pass for the iPhone, it was alpine or something, but there is no shell to reprogram it with. I guess they removed the flash drive and hooked it up to a computer to get the shadow file out to dictionary crack it.
    I really thought about this vs. the iPhone or N95, and I just like the idea of a no OS phone/no OS PC.

    As for twittergram, I don’t see any new tech there.

  5. So, I hear the PodTech folks enjoying the email functionality – no issues with Exchange email at work? Curious how that was going…
