Long Time

It has been a very long time since I posted to the iPhone blog … lots of stuff has been going on, but I haven’t discovered anything all that new with the iPhone. I have been asked to take part in an Apple UEF working group looking at the iPhone in the higher education space and will be reporting on that as it unfolds. We had our first kickoff meeting last week, but didn’t get into the primary issues with the iPhone. We will, it will just be in a few weeks.

The only other thing to really report is that the iPhone Community Hub is starting to take shape. It can be found at http://ets.tlt.psu.edu/iphone … it is designed to provide a single point of reference to all iPhone related content floating around the PSU web. Right now, most of hte content is being aggregated in from multiple sources, but will eventually contain original content in form of help, getting started, and trouble shooting documents. If you have a Penn State or Friends of PSU account head over and post your comments or thoughts.

  1. Probably by hand. There isn’t too much content over there — the last time I checked. When I have a minute I’ll try to make sense of it.

    How’s your iPhone treating you? How’d it go at the Library the other day?

  2. The library meeting was productive. There was lots of interest in using iPhones for mobile access to library databases. I asked a couple of the folks there to write up a description of what they want to do so we could have it on-hand for our meeting with Jeff.

    As for my iPhone, I have mixed feelings. As a mobile web browser, it’s great. The email client is so-so (I really want sorting and searching). As a phone, there are a lot of rough edges (lots of dropped calls, lots of missed calls because of too-quiet ring-tones, etc).

  3. I am in agreement on the email — I only use it when I am away from the office and only read messages that appear to be critical. I tend to drop calls in exactly the same places on campus — somewhere between the 2nd and 1st floors of the Eisenhower parking deck, right by the Business Building, and as I approach Rider II … other than that it has been good. I do tend to talk on the phone more with it — I think that is b/c I enjoy the stereo headset. The ring is way too quiet! I miss way too many calls that way.

    Glad to hear the Library meeting went well.
