Makes sense, I haven't even looked at my GPS since getting a smartphone.

The GPS can be flaky on phones though. I tried to use mine today but it couldn't find a satellite within a half an hour. My trip only took that long. My phone is 2 years old though, so I hope they have changed some things since then.

To whoever pointed out traffic, newer GPS units also check for traffic and take that into account. However, those units cost about as much as a smart phone anyway.

I wouldn't be sure how to take this if I was a patient of his. I think this is okay for simple tests like the echocardiogram as long as it's just a checkup and they aren't testing for any specific kind of condition. Not to mention there is no way a smart phone is capable of something like an MRI or CAT scan.

I'm hoping the next generation IPhone will print money.

Close, the built in fingerprint scanner on the home button will make a secure digital wallet dispenser for cash you already own.

We need Iphones to replace lawyers and politicians....

Sounds good, they are already advanced enough to do this, so we just need someone crafty enough to write an app for it.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

With a GPS you aren't burning your data plan. GPS signals are free, courtesy of the US Military. And the battery life on my GPS is better than the battery life of my phone with the GPS on...

Smartphones are great for the city. Assisted GPS locks onto wifi spots to determine location.

Once you get out far enough to lose reception the preferences for smart-phones as navigational tools change to dedicated receivers.

I'm definately not feeling any heat from the iPhone, but my Android phone however takes such good quality photos i'm having a tough time competing with myself sometimes.

I would not want to be treated by a doctor who pulled up his/her iPhone and said they would cure me or something with it. Then i would just laugh at them and walk away to a real doctor.
