How big will the iPhone be?

Posted on June 20th, 2007 in Uncategorized by Karl

When I travel, there are two things I can’t live without: my Blackberry and my iPod.

I love my Blackberry because I can get email and surf the internet (albeit poorly). It’s gotten to the point that I do NOT travel with my laptop anymore.

I love my iPod b/c it has all my music but more importantly, my video iPod has movies, audio books, and recordings of important conference calls that I didn’t have time to listen to live. Here’s my question: will the iPhone replace both my video iPod and my Blackberry? Will the iPhone dethrone the ‘Bery from the corporate market? If it does, could this be the Trojan horse that allows Macs to gain marketshare in the corporate PC market? At this point, I’m not betting against this possibility!

I did it!

I escaped!  On Sunday, June 3rd, I completed the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon with a time of 3:23.  The most challenging part of the race was the swim.  Boy, was that water chilly!  55 degrees never felt so cold as it did when I jumped off the ferry into the San Francisco Bay at 7am last Sunday.  Luckily the current was helping me as I swam from Alcatraz to Chrissy Field.  After completing the 1.5 mile swim, the 18 mile bike and 8 mile run felt great.

The best news is that I was able to raise $10,000 for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute to help support Dr. Ken Anderson’s research in Multiple Myleoma.  All the credit goes to very generous support from family and friends.  Thank you!
