Reasons to buy the iPhone 4 Video Transcript
If you?re like millions of other lemmings, er, people, your only question about the iPhone 4 is: White or black? I?m B.C. with another CNET Top 5: Reasons You Just Gotta Rush Out and Buy an iPhone 4 Even If It Means Choosing Between Heating Your Home or Feeding Your Children. #5: Better antennas. OK, this one is really boring, but what cell phones do is really magic: A tiny battery powered radio in your hand does voice calls, emails, texts, loads web pages and streaming media and now does video calls by talking to a tower up to several miles away. iPhone 4?s antennas are now right on the outside -- but without being one of those goofy external jobbies we had in the 90?s. And, they might even functions as a handwarmer? #4 Two cameras. The main one on the back is now 5MP, and there?s a tiny new one on the front for video calling. It shows you to the person on the other end while you see them on your screen. And Apple?s Face Time app promises to make the whole process easy and pretty. You gotta? have an iPhone 4 on both ends, and its not like we need ANOTHER technology to enable self-absorption, but you know this one?s gonna? be a crowd pleaser. #3: Multitasking. OK, consumers don?t waltz into cell phone stores with ?multitasking? on their lips, but they do ask for fast & powerful. Multitasking does that. It lets the iPhone 4 truly do multiple things at once and that feels fast. Like with the two cameras Apple is actually playing a bit of catch up this feature, but when Apple plays catch up it?s called ?innovation?. #2: HD video. The iPhone 4 can not only shoot 720p HD video, it can also edit in camera with a mini version of iMovie, and upload directly to YouTube, Mobile Me, MMS, etc. This sort of thing is really Apple?s strong suit but even if they made a hash of it, wouldn?t you love to have a phone that means you can stop carrying a Flip video camera with that goofy little USB dongle? #1 Retina display: This whole business of 326 PPI resolution via an IPS transistor matrix may seem like the stuff geeks spout to compensate, but let me put it this way: It?ll look like ink, not dots. Got it? The one feature you always use on a smarpthone is the display. And it?s also the first thing that wows people sitting by you at the bar so yeah, Retina will pay dividends like BP before the Gulf. That?s it for this edition of Top 5. Go get your iPhone 4 and shoot, edit and upload a better version then send me the link. I?m B.C., see you next time.
