    Apple iPhone 4 is like a Leica

    Steve Jobs of Apple introduced the new iPhone 4 yesterday and said it was so well made that the only thing he could compare it to was a beautiful old Leica camera. Here's the video link. The Leica reference is made at about the 31 minute mark. You can move the slider if you want to fast forward.

    OK, here is probably the hottest new consumer product in the world being compared to an old Leica, quality-wise. WOW!

    That's what a poor education does for you, to be honest you are lucky I spelt it all right. But it's lucky that poor grammar is not an indication of intelligence

    If it is like a Leica I should be able to buy one used in about 50 years and have a reasonable expectation that it will still work?

    Leica should call Steve Job's up & give him a full out assault. He may think his iPhone is great but it's not legendary. And the way modern products are made in 50 years that lithium ion battery will have leaked destroying the electronics.

    I have started to shifted away from some of the new technology. There was a family down here in Australia who just did a 6 month stint without technology. They were amazed how they all began communicating & doing interesting things. Not sitting looking at a gadget.
