Not only is it more useful than an encyclopedia by being current, it's also more portable.

/Would have packed them with towels.

I've always thought "iPhone" was a really bad generic name for a premium product.

Late 80s everything was "e-something" going into the 90s it was "i-something" and then "x-something".

It was an old and uncreative naming convention when the iPod came out.

Obviously they've done well with the device but the name still sucks.

I guess I'm too late now to write my novel about phone-based ai conquering the world..

I, Phone
