I’ve been on quite an anti-iPhone streak since the release of iPhone 4.  I didn’t want our most recent comic to be a tear on the iPhone 4, per se, but rather on the sometimes lonely world of an early adopter.  I could actually imagine people Facetiming strangers they meet, just for the chance to use the feature.  Still, some will see this week’s comic as strictly anti-iPhone.  The perils of being an iHater, I suppose…

I’ve seen reviews that have given the iPhone 4 mega props for its front-facing camera, but that have failed to mention that at the time of release, only people with an iPhone 4 could use FaceTime, and then only over a Wi-Fi connection (which our comic fails to mention as well – I like to imagine one of the characters is also carrying an HTC Evo, Steve Wozniak style, and using it as a mobile hot spot).

Still, since I learned that FaceTime is more or less an open standard, I haven’t hated on it as much as I hoped I would get to.  That’s OK.  Apple will do something soon that will infuriate me, and I’ll quickly get over the disappointment of kind of liking FaceTime.
