Just in case you're from Mars

I imagine everyone who cares about the new iPhone knows where to find the news, but I imagine there might be one of you who just woke up from a coma, or arrived from Mars, and needs to know what is going on. TechMeme has almost wall-to-wall coverage of all the new iPhone stuff.

Me? My 14-year-old son loaded all of our iPhones (we own three) with iPhone 2.0 firmware update. He also did a little review on Qik for me.

We’ll be at the San Francisco Apple store to get the new iPhone. We should arrive at about 6:30 a.m. — watch Qik for some news and stuff. Or come and join us.

Then we’ll head over to the Revision 3 studios to film WorkFastTV.

  1. Have fun! I managed to score a phone in Sydney Australia last night.

    Most of my friends didn’t quite get why I would line up in the freezing cold for hours only to buy a mobile phone.

    Once you let them play with it for 5 minutes with it they generally know why.

  3. It’s starting to feel like last summer, where no tech news site could post a single story without someone asking, “So, what does this have to do with the iPhone??”

    Enjoy your phones, guys. Me? I’m still happy with my (nearly 5 year old) Nokia 7210.

  5. Well gosh, Apple sure knows how to pull a Microsoft, this has been a disaster of a rollout. But Apple is that good at brand loyalty, that it all matters little. I am holding for the jailbroken run however.

  7. Why the hell do you need THREE iPhones?

    People in this country are losing their jobs and struggling to pay bills and you (like so many others…are you and Jason Calacanis pals?) are just throwing tons of money into something that is unecessary and will be tossed aside in a year, at most.

    Put your foot down and set an example. There’s nothing wrong with innovation in tech but dammit you don’t have to be one of the mindless masses of tech journalists that buy all this crap for no reason other than to say you have it.

    Also, why does a 14-yr. old have a cellphone? Is he Doogie Howser?

    Geez.

    My first cellphone was in 2000. It a Tracfone and it was good enough.

    People today are too damn spoiled. Be different Scoble — I’m positive people will notice.

  9. I depend on my phones. We have three people, we need three iPhones. The Nokia lines are for testing (I have a Windows Mobile phone too). It’s my job to keep up on gadgets in the industry.

    You must have missed that I’ve had more than 500,000 visits to my Qik.com/scobleizer channel — I need to have several phones to make that happen. A cell phone is far cheaper than a satellite phone, or an HD camcorder.
