exclusive photos and review of the prototype iPhone 3G

I have a special treat for my blog readers.  I had a chance to play around with the prototype iPhone 3G today.  As you know, on June 9 at the WWDC, Apple and Steve Jobs released info, specs, and prices of the new iPhone 3G to be offically released to the rest of the “average public” on July 11.  

But I have connections.  Here are some pics and commentary:

INTERFACE:  Very clear instructions and Power button is very very visible.

USABILITY:  The buttons on the TouchPad are very easy to see and push.  In fact, Apple guarantees you’ll never press the wrong button.

DURABILITY:  Built solid like a rock or a shoe.  But smells better than your shoe.

SIZE:  Yes.

FLEXIBILITY: Not only is it an iPhone, but it can also iProtect you from phone jackers.  I personally like to carry around my nanchucks where ever I go and will utilize my new iPhone 3G for protection as well.

Here’s what it looks like to carry both your nanchucks and new iPhone 3G in your back pockets.  Don’t mess me with me. I’ll kick your ass…and then, pray for you. 

 

Seriously, I’ve had this phone for awhile.  I love it.  Whenever I’m having a tense day…I carry this phone outside.  I’ll pretend I’m talking on this phone as I’m walking or even better, driving around…and the looks people give me.  It’s hilarious. 

Before the Apple cult fans start sending me hate mail, here are the real pics of the iPhone 3G.  Alright, who’s getting in line to get these stupid new iPhones? In case you’re not already in sin coveting this gadget, here’s one of the new commercials:

And lastly, a friendly reminder to be careful with your nanchucks.  Don’t jump and swing.  I’m so bad. [h/t Ron P.]

    That was awesome man. Thanks for that chuckle this morning. Your phone is definitely the coolest thing I’ve seen since the late 80s-early 90s.

  8. beattieblog says:

    that’s hilarious. You should be able to talk to the president or something with that.

  9. young c-m says:

    wow, your phone is huge! I didn’t know they ever made them that large….;)

  10. Steve Jobs says:

    Mr. Cho, as per our agreement we sent you the 3rd generation iPhone. We thought the arrangement was perfectly clear that you are not allowed to show any photos or demonstrations of the device until it’s released in the fall of 2009.

    Please send back the iPhone 3.0 along with the following products that we believe are in your posession:

    * iNunChaku
    * iNunChaku mini
    * PrayerLab Automatic Sermon Generator
    * iCrazyAsianHair

    My lawyers will be in touch.

  11. that looks very impressive. Now correct me if I’m wrong- but I heard the working title is actually the iBrick? And is that a breathalyzer between the power and volume buttons? For those who phone while driving, I guess.

    @Steve Jobs:

    Steve. Seriously, I’m sorry. Let’s not involve our lawyers in this. Send me your private jet and I’ll fly out to your yacht and we’ll talk things through.

    I do have some congregants at Microsoft and I can get you software with their employee discount. You interested? In fact, I can buy it as a peace offering.

  13. Terry says:

    This is too funny!

    Crazy to think how big these phones were not that long ago.

  14. Steve, the iphone is old technology.

    the new Windows 7 is so advanced, that the exclusive telepathy feature will make phones completely obsolete.

    In fact, Mr. Cho, you won’t even have to utter a word during your Sunday services. You will think it, and they will know.

    Btw, my lawyers can beat up Steve’s lawyers.

    Best iPhone ad by a pastor. Ever.

    hahaha.

  16. Eric Mah says:

    I’ve done the same thing with old phones; it really does lift the spirit. My goal is to get a hold of the generation before that one where the mobile phone is housed in a briefcase. Word.

  17. This is freakin’ amazing.

  18. Jason says:

    Dude, we’re going to lose our pastor to comedy central if you keep this up. Had me ROLFing.

  19. […] Numbers.  Math.  Kung Fu and Nanchuks. Intelligent.  Eat dogs.  Play the violin.  Ive League.  Quiet.  Passive.  We speak Engrish […]

Still my baby son! This was 10 years ago. I dominated my son in wrestling and I know what you're thinking, "How could you employ a rear chokehold armbar kimura on your own son?" Hey, a competition is a competition.

I love you, son. The world is broken. This ia a sad truth. But the story of redemption is not yet finished. God is not yet done. This is the ultimate Truth. Have hope. Press on. Ten years ago, I witnessed one of those "God things" when a church called Interbay Covenant Church gave itself, its legacy, and a building property worth $7 million dollars to @seattlequest. We were then only 5 years old.

Quest is an urban, multiethnic churchplant that started in 2001. We rented the facilities at Interbay Covenant Church - a predominantly older, mostly Anglo congregation with a rich 65 years history. After some time, Pastor Ray Bartel (senior pastor, Interbay) approached me with a "crazy idea" of Interbay "dying to itself and giving itself to Quest" for the sake of the greater Kingdom and the coming generations.

This eventually led to three years of many conversations and prayers. On June 3, 2007, the two churches officially came together to become one church. In giving itself, Interbay also shared their leadership, legacy, and stories. They also gave all of their assets without any strings and without any debt.

Their radical generosity and courage is what enabled Quest to grow - not just numerically - but deeper in discipleship, and deeper in missions - to the city of Seattle and beyond. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of this merger, we created a short film (check my FB page to see the video) to tell the story - so that our church and the next generations may never forget and that the larger Church may be stirred and encouraged by a greater Kingdom vision.

Thank you, Interbay! The NBA season is over but the hustle and grind continues for my daughter. We argue sometimes but I love training my daughter. She's working hard for her senior year next year. Starting point guard. She's improved a lot. She's one of the quickest players on the floor and has a great midrange jumper. But trying to get her to keep working on her handles, using her off hand and shoulder to protect the ball,  staying and dribbling the ball lower to the ground, and playing aggressive and downhill while remaining in control. That's what we're working on this week. #hoopdreams #ChovarBall Reunited with my favorite elephant, Buh'loom. We bonded earlier this year and I'd like to think that she recognized my voice. Also, appreciate learning about ethical and sustainable eco-tourism.
