I have an iphone AND a preponderance of strange olde worlde cameras. There, I've said it.
The iphone is truly a wondrous object, that far surpasses the technology Dick Tracy could wear on his arm, and is useful in so many ways. (phone, note taker, encyclopaedia, light meter, timer, map, compass, folio, radio, newspaper, etc etc etc). Like ANY tool, some folks use them badly, some folks use them well. In a few years, what seems strange and rude now will be commonplace or obsolete.
