iPhone Blog Comments June 30, 2007

Posted by gordonwatts in blog.

Ok. Enough with the fun and games. It seems like every post of mine that has the works “cell” and “phone” in them has been hit with a comment that points back to some iPhone accessory. The people that leave these comments are trying to build up search-engine link-love for their products. I’m trying to keep up with deleting them, but, please, get on with actually making a good product so people will link to it rather than doing this!

Maybe I should freeze posts so that after 30 days (or some such) you can’t continue to leave comments.

well, just for the record – I left a link, but it wasn’t to any product – it was to sources of information about iPhones … http://paullevinson.blogspot.com/2007/06/iphone-arrives.html that’s clearly not a post about an “accessory,” is it?

2. gordonwatts - June 30, 2007

Yes — and that is why your comment is still on my blog, and many others aren’t! 🙂

I cannot wait for this Product to come to the UK, I have 2 phones both with varying PDA functions wished they were both merged into one, life will be a lot easier and because I travel on the the train a lot I do have my music on the go (Ipod). I have often wondered what life would be like if carried just one device that allowed me to make calls, organise my schedules and documents and surf the web. I just hope the Battery Life is better than what we got on the Ipods and comes without the £50.00 bbattery replacement charge they currently ask for.
I wonder how long we will have to wait for and no doubt we will be paying double the price……our friends across the pond are so lucky.

See my reply, Ashly, to the identical comment you posted on my other post. I’ve removed the link.
You know what — I can’t tell if this is spam! At first this had a pointer (which I’ve removed) to a web site that sells cell phone components. And it was posted on two different posts of mine.

Really, Apple tries to turn an iPod into a phone but i think Apple did badly.

Who would have thought of mailing a phone back to Apple just to have a battery change? Together with your friends phone numbers, your private pics and movie clips?

Not to mentioned the additional strain on the postal system.

No doubt soldering in a battery would have reduce manufacturing cost, but then the iPhone is not a budget phone either.

Yeah, I can’t make up my mind about this. I have lots of devices that don’t have a removable battery and they work just fine and I get along just fine. There are a few — like my portable computer — that I demand a removable battery: because I carry more than one of them with me. But my cell phone and my music player (neither apple based) have a sealed in battery. I’ve got no complaints so far… But for the second hand market I suspect the inability to replaces these batteries is bad. I’ve met iPod owners with a scant 15 minutes of music playing time.

heh…that probably happens because nowadays anything that has to do with a “cell” or “phone” is sort of automatically associated with an “iPhone”..

8. gordonwatts - May 9, 2011

True – but this was back in 2007! 🙂

Lol, you are correct gordon. Old article!
