White is the new black

I went to the Apple store today to make an international call using Skype, but found that many of the iMacs had parental controls turned enforcing a white list of websites users could access. That list included Apple websites, but did not include skype.com or even att.com, which made it difficult for me to download the software necessary for me to make my international call. Luckily not all Macs were restricted and I was able to take care of business.

In other news, I think it's at least worth mentioning that white is an available option on the 16GB iPhone 3G but is not available for the 8GB. Does that make white the new black, a traditional mark of distinction? Back when the first 2G iPod nanos were released, black was only available on the higher capacity 8GB nano. Black MacBooks also cost more than white MacBooks.

nope. USD299 is not such a big price to make a different in class, compared to the original 599.

anyway, I think iPhone 3G is too cheap, such that it makes everyone talking about it. Being a technology nerd, this is somehow irritating.

Come on, many dont even distinguish GPS from GPRS.

Aw, come on. That makes me want to keep my current generation iPhone longer. Truth is, enough people over here already have it such that it still won't be as cool as the iPhone 3G. I still think it's impressive when people have a 3G iPod.
