A look at Apple’s iPhone

Posted by: Brian
Apple iPhone
At long last, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the much-heralded iPhone during today’s Macworld keynote address in San Francisco.

While I don’t want to make this site too commercial, I find it hard not to consider the iPhone an appropriate combination of technology and art.

So, if you want to learn more about the iPhone, here is what Apple has to say.

That being said, I would almost guarantee John and I will be at least mentioning the iPhone in a future “Technology & the Arts” podcast.

Apple also detailed its Apple TV device that creates a wireless connection between one’s iTunes video library and television set (as well as other PCs), and officially changed its name from Apple Computer, Inc., to Apple, Inc.
