Ten reasons buying an iPhone was a sound financial decision:
10. It was $300 less expensive than the first Smartphone I imported in 2004.
9. I just recently signed a new 2 year at&t contract anyway.
8. With Visual Voicemail, I'll actually save money I would've otherwise spent having to make a call to listen to messages.
7. Since it has an iPod built in, I'll save money and time by not buying, charging, and syncing a 2nd mp3 player device in the future.
6. Jeff and I will need to test our own UI on many devices and platforms.
5. As a technology entrepreneur, it's critical that I investigate and understand various advances in technology (and thus, one of these is obviously next).
4. It was really fun to play with today at Mind Camp (like band camp, for nerds!)
3. My last phone's LCD cracked then died after dropping it one too many times over the weekend (i.e. the real catalyst for it all).
2. After dropping my last phone again when pulling it out of my pocket in the Apple store, I was able to secure a rugged iPhone case to protect my investment for only an additional $30.
1. Simply put, it really fucking rocks. Get one. Really.
