“The iPhone makes me mad,” Peter Svensson, newly-minted “Mac guy,” reports for The Associated Press.
“Not, mind you, at the iPhone itself, but mad at cell-phone manufacturers who have saddled us for years with interfaces that lure us into labyrinths of menus,” Svensson reports.
“The iPhone has one button on its face. It always does the same thing: takes you to the top menu, where icons representing all functions of the phone — music player, Internet browser and more — are laid out in a clear manner. Wham, you’re out of the labyrinth,” Svensson reports.
“This makes me mad, because this isn’t just the way it should be done, it’s the way it always should have been done. This became clear to me as I set out to look at the iPhone along with two other top-of-the-line phones, the Nokia N95 and Helio’s Ocean,” Svensson reports.
“Apple’s first phone launched amid tremendous hype in late June. Since then most of the press has been about hacks and complaints… Don’t pay it any attention: the iPhone is the best phone you can buy right now,” Svensson reports.
