Journal Entry # 1 – Arnoldo

September 4, 2008
Arnoldo: Are you looking forward to getting an iPhone when it comes out at the end onf this year? Having an iPhone, at first can look very practical. But if you take a deeper view of it, you might find out it not woths it. If you think that is practical to have an Ipod, phone, camera, internet and emails in one device, it really looks good. But if you run out of battery, loose its or brake it, you will lose every information that you  need. And I know that iPhones are always with problems, so i wouldn´t buy one.
Rick: Really? 😦 I am dying to get my hands on one, being the technology geek I am 😦 sigh … Maybe I should talk to someone who has an iPhone first to see if it is really worth it. Thanks for the piece of advice, man.
Arnoldo: In 2007 July, I went to the U.S. and the iPhone has just been released. I also was very ansious to have one so I bought it. A few months later, it broked and I needed to buy a new phone. Having an iPhone, can be very fun and usfull, but I think the problems it has doesn´t wothrs it.


  1. I would love having an Iphone, but, acording to Arnoldo’s arguments, this is not very practical. And now I agree with him, because I know many people , that had an Iphone and it broke too.

  2. Bruna: Yes, an Iphone always break and you can lose all your informations. And I think that at the begiging you really look for the Iphone, but when you have it for a time you don’t care anymore.

  3. Alexandre: Iphone is certainly a usefull device. But as Arnoldo said , it has a lot of ” small ” problems. Although my one is still alive , it is considered fragil. Apple has also published that a virus is on the net and we must be carefull with the ” INSTALLER ” . A programe called ” 1.1.3 prepare ” is a virus created by a child who is 11 years old. With this virus, your Iphone won´t work anymore. Fourtenely , Stev Jobs went to a talk with this little destructive child last year. But, as far as I am concerned, the virus is still on the net.
