iPhone Sighting

It finally happened. Yesterday at work I saw an iPhone. It was only for a couple of seconds, as someone half pulled it out of his pocket to check something and quickly put it back. I did not see it in full use, it was only a glance, but it was long enough to verify it was indeed an iPhone.

So, my milestones so far:

  • 2007 Jun 29 22:00 UTC: iPhone goes on Sale
  • 2007 Jun 30 02:42 UTC: (4 hours 42 minutes later) I see my first iPhone bag in person
  • 2007 Jul 9 11:35 UTC: (10 days, 13 hours, 35 minutes later) I get my first email sent from an iPhone
  • 2007 Jul 25 17:33 UTC: (26 days, 19 hours, 33 minutes later) I glimpse my first iPhone in person

This is a lot slower than I expected. I figured for sure I would have seen one in the first week. Instead it took almost 27 days. And that was just a brief glance.

This is of course only for viewing it “in the wild”. If I’d seen them at the Apple store or something that wouldn’t count. But I haven’t been to one since it launched anyway, so it all turns out the same.

One other note about the email I got from an iPhone. I *got* it on the 9th… but it was SENT on the 4th… not sure if that says something about mail on the iPhone, or something else entirely, most likely the second, but just wanted to point out that delta.

OK, see, a non-political post. Hope you all enjoyed it.

Now I am being called to dinner.
