Could the button on the third row down, fourth column over be the mysterious killer app for Apple's iPhone? Wouldn't it be neat if it was possible?!? :mickey:




...and note that this topic is appearing in Disneys Echo's Disney Jokes, Satire & Spoofs forum.
LOL



UPDATE: This topic did indeed originally appear in the Disney Echo's "Disney Jokes, Satire & Spoofs" forum -- and it does have some spoof elements to it -- but the topic has now been moved into the "Disney Echo iPhone & Cellphones" forum.

Remember, Steve Jobs, Apple Inc.'s CEO, does sit on Disney's Board of Directors.....  And as Walt said about the theme park version of Pirates of the Caribbean "Anything is possible at Disneyland!"

If you are beleiving this...

Note what Forum you're in.....  Heh!  



UPDATE: This topic originally appear in the Disney Echo's "Disney Jokes, Satire & Spoofs" forum -- and it does have some spoof elements to it -- but the topic has now been moved into the "Disney Echo iPhone & Cellphones" forum.




Seriously, the iPhone is a real thing, very intriguing latest gizmo to come out that combines cell phone, Internet, photos, iPod and many features to be a rather elegant new type of "smartphone" to hit the market.  Announced at Mac World in California in January 2007 the product rolls out June 29, 2007.  It's a legit product.  You can Google it, be sure to watch the 4 TV commercials on the Apple iPhone website, see all the product demos on the website.  Apple makes the iPhone and AT&T (previously Cingular, before AT&T bought the company) is who supplies the wireless network for it, so also check it out at AT&T products website for their data plans. Google info about it, including the reviews and comments so far.  Pricey initial roll out, but ooooooohhhhh, check out the commercials on the website, then check out the product demonstrations and if you have a lot of time, see the online video of MacWorld where Steve Jobs demonstrates this thing.  Tech prices usually fall after awhile, so let market forces play out.  Just check it out!

And who knows, maybe eventually you can in fact add some little icon hot buttons to touch and go straight to any favorite or common use you have in mind....  Any thing and any place in particular you have in mind, where could those be, I wonder....?  Heh!
:jacksparrowsavvy:

I saw some TV commercials now starting to run about iPhone, referred Rich to it, now he's all intrigued.

If you're interested:

iPhone official site.

AT&T iPhone site.

Get an iPhone touchscreen button/icon that look like these, heh!   :monorail3:  :lapulapu2:  :Disneyland:  :parkhopper:

Dreaming on and on and on....

Even though I did put this in the Disney Jokes, Satire and Spoofs forum... UPDATE: originally... Carol is correct that the iPhone from Apple is real and coming to Apple stores and AT&T stores to be sold starting on the last Friday of this month.

Some people have speculated that iPhone will allow users to save a shortcut/bookmark on the menus to their favorite app (application) or saved bookmark on the internet browser, right there on the iPhone's screen. So..... maybe it isn't out of the realm of what may be possible in the future to have a menu button taking you directly to the Disney Echo!
:idea:

The ad above is a phony, though -- I Photoshopped it. LOL

I love it!  Does that button take one right to the Echo?  I will definitely buy that phone now if it does.

It does!

In your dreams!

(Note what Forum you are in, read entire thread. Heh! )

Rich got very intrigued and researched the iPhone over the weekend.  Lots of people are more impressed with the gadgetry than the price (they hate high prices on tech stuff, then again, don't we all? )  .  

What impresses me most is the scrolling, and the looking through album covers to find the album and then the cut you want to hear.  Very "Wow!"

Then what impresses me is the ability to really use and view the Internet, use Google Maps to find a location, then phone that location directly by touching it's listing.

Then there is the ability to size photos, view in either a horizontal or vertical format.

The iPhone commercials are all over the place on cable/satellite TV.  

Or you can view all four commercials on the iPhone website.  In the lower right corner of the home page it refers you to those commercials.

For Disney fans and "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie fans:  View the "Calamari" commercial.

Rich really is intrigued by this new techno gadget (Have you heard the saying, "The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys ?" :) ) and we were out and about Saturday, he went to the Cingular/AT & T kiosk in Lakeside Mall in Metairie LA and inquired.  No joke, this is what they told him:

At the nearby Cingular/AT & T Store near the mall, on Friday June 29 they will close the store at 4 pm.  They will reopen it at 6 pm that day, two hours later, (get this ) with armed guards ( ! ) , and start selling the iPhones and the AT & T calling plan and services connected with the iPhone, answer questions, etc.  How late the store stays open....  Who knows?  No advance word of what the services and plans will cost....

Armed guards???   Will it be like this for all Cingular/AT & T stores, or just that one????
