From what I understand, Steve Jobs is still yammering at the WWDC as I type this as the collective techie world holds its breath for another *BIG* Apple announcement.

However, unless it’s an “iTot” equivalent of the iPhone for toddlers, I’m not interested:

Not only can my kid turn it on and off (despite the “lock” feature), he can manipulate it to change alarm noises (a feature we use often at night to indicate when playtime will end and bath time will begin) and find his favorite apps. Yes, he has favorite apps.

The kid is not even three yet. I’d like to think he’s a genius for figuring it out, but I have a feeling Apple is the real winner since they’ve now locked my son in as a future customer for life.

I can almost here the Dr. Evil laugh from Silicon Valley now if I concentrate hard enough.

  1. When I got my iPhone Sam just assumed my iPod touch was his. He likes to play 'Pac game' AKA pac man and watch movies. Thank goodness he hasn't figured out that if he wears headphones he can hear the sound. Apple is a genius company, indeed.

    BTW, how are you feeling these days?

  2. Apple gets you at a young age. My first computer was an Apple IIe (green screen and all) and as I type this on my MacBook, I'm not ashamed to say I drank the kool-aid.

    Sidebar – A $99 iPhone is a pretty good announcement 🙂
