The iPhone frenzy continues unabated with all its associated silliness peaking constantly as Friday approaches – even Scoble has gotten in on the kool-aid drinking extravaganza. Just about everywhere you turn something is being written about it in the tech b’sphere to the point that some folks are crying uncle. Debates are going on about how the iPhone will forever change the mobile space and whether or not it will live up to all the hype.
It doesn’t matter that it runs on a slow as molasses network, it doesn’t matter that you can’t get it without signing a two year locked down contract with AT&T, it doesn’t matter that the iPhone could cost you close to $6,000.00 over that two years. What does matter is that it is an Apple product that has the whole iPod culture behind it. A culture of “only Apple knows how to bring cool designs to market“, a culture of Mac coolness and then on top of that it has His Job’ness.
The iPhone will be a financial success even if in the days following the release of the product the natives get restless. The road of success forward has already been paved and nothing will derail this gravy train for Apple. Sure the hype leading up to Friday is getting nauseating and folks might be wishing that Friday will come and go so we can get this abject drooling under control.
Well I hate to tell you folks this is only the beginning of the iPhone’ing of the tech world. Come Monday; or even late Friday, the real iPhone hype will start rolling across the b’sphere like an unstoppable train. It won’t matter if some of it is negative or some is positive. As of Friday the iPhone will change the b’sphere for good and it won’t matter if it sucks – the Master of Hype will have succeeded in making Apple the one to beat. Not to mention making him just a little richer in the process.
