"It's bigger than the personal computer"

So said this guy at the recent Apple Developer get-together on March 6th, 2008.

I really fell for the iPhone when I was outside a bar and was chatting to some dude, and asked him where another cool bar was. He took out his iPhone and pulled up Google Maps - it looked awesome - just like on the web - but it was better, in that it geolocated us on the map, and it even seemed faster. He then got directions to this other bar he was telling me about. I was floored. Too easy. Too fast. Too cool.

Then I saw that video above. It's incredible. A 3-axis accelerometer? You've got to be kidding me.

Next - I just want a barcode-reader built into the iPhone - that will be so legit.
