What's on your iPhone?

Sorry, no proper update today because I've been writing my next Wired column. It's about how Apple makes me cry... with joy, of course, even when they're announcing their version of gadgets I've already declared the spawn of Satan. I don't say I'll actually relent and buy a cell phone now, but I'm inclined to say that one reason I had to hate the things was simply that Apple hadn't made one yet, and therefore there just wasn't one inspiring enough to splash out on.

Anyway, imagine you're holding your iPhone now (rather than June, or whenever it's released near you). What mp3 will you play on it? Why, this one, of course. Jona Bechtolt's France Culture show featuring friends of Blow.

Music by Friends for the Radio in France tracklist:

01 Lucky Dragons - "Martha's Work" (previously unreleased)
02 The World Court - "Animal Oracle" (YACHT premix; previously unreleased)
03 Dear Nora - "Defeated and Lonely"
04 Kixly - "Heart Sparks" (previously unreleased)
05 The Blow - "Baby" (Jab Micha Och Elle remix; previously unreleased)
06 Adrian Orange - "No More Wild"
07 Tussle - "Second Guessing" (YACHT remix; previously unreleased)
08 High Places - "Head Spins" (previously unreleased)
09 White Rainbow - "nov6number1MIDDLE" (previously unreleased)
10 YACHT - "See a Penny" (premix; previously unreleased)
11 Pash - "Once Made" (previously unreleased)
12 Panther - "Tiger's Touch" (previously unreleased)
13 O.Lamm - "Open Malice" (with Zoe Wolf)
14 Dirty Projectors - "Imagine It"
15 Girl Talk - "Smash Your Head"
16 Momus - "Devil Mask, Buddha Mind"
17 The Konki Duet - "Inflammable"
18 Hawnay Troof - "Expectations and Delivery" (feat. BARR)
19 The Blow - "Hock It" (YACHT remix; previously unreleased)

I may be still in the thrall of Jobs' charisma, but I have to say the iPhone leaves me feeling tickly and excited. They sure make gadgets a joy to use rather than a drudgery. And they care about aesthetics! Who knew?

I just heard the "Rock Me Amadeus" song on the radio so I gotta pick that as the MP3 I'll listen to. It's stuck in my head!

1 + 1 = 808

iPhone + this (http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=2247) = this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_TR-808). Garageband is shrinking..... a full recording studio in your pocket.

I don't know. from the photos I've seen it seems to be about as big as an adult hand. That's some major stuff to lug around.

Countdown to the thing slipping out of people's hands as they put it to their ears. That thing has a weird shape.

Hey, defend The Blow on Wikipedia!

Hey Momus~

I was digging your blog, and the props to Jona and Khaela, when I noticed that there's a big dispute over Khaela's Wikipedia entry. Check it out at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Khaela_Maricich.

This pisses me off, because I played a show with Jona a while back and he was super nice, and I think that they're really doing neat music.

Keep up the awesome posts.

Re: Hey, defend The Blow on Wikipedia!

The fact that someone has cited their mention in this blog as evidence of their mainstream relevance is incredibly hilarious.

Does anybody know what the story is behind Jona not showing at their last Portland show? I asked him when I ran into him later but he didn't say much.

While it gives me a big rubbery one I'm more excited to see the technology coming out rather than the excitement and promise of actually getting one. By the time I need to get a new phone (and I'm pretty good with not destroying my phone) I hope that even fairly cheap phones will be as well designed.

are apple products really that well designed or are they going for the lowest common denominator ? - which might indeed be the mark of good (fascist) design.

I've never wanted a cell phone. I've never had an mp3 player, I want one of those but not enough to get one. I want an iPhone.

The phone looks great but I don't think it would fair well in my construction worker pocket.

I'm interested in the AppleTV and sending content from my laptop to a hi def tv wirelessly. Looks like it's tied in with iTunes but I'm sure there'll be some workarounds a la Airfoil.

I was recently arguing with my grad student room-mate how that hybrid devices are always a waste of energy. How they never give you ample amounts of each "device". You always get a crippled audio player, or a low mp camera, etc. etc. etc.

But this iPhone, seems to buck the trend.. hopefully. Except for the low gig ipod, it seems to be on the money. The talk about the casing, about whether or not it'll scratch easy or whether or not it'll slip out of your hands.. both are cheap shots. I think after last years debacle over the nano scratches they've probably done more research than they cared to, to get that fixed. And about the phone being slippery. Once again. I can't see that slipping pass them. They aren't perfect, but again, they do their homework.
