The most recent AT&T-Apple ad for the iPhone shows just how much iPhone users are ready and waiting to care about the sale of the former 'merican side of the German-American hybrid — if only given the opportunity. The new über-phone is shown running through such fundamentals as "how to turn it on", how to listen to music, how to check e-mail, etc. But when it gets to "this is how you surf the web," we're treated to a web shot of the New York Times from a few weeks back featuring an article by Micki Maynard and Mark Landler — "Chrysler on Verge of Sale to a Private Firm." But then — just as these two automotive industry writers are about to become famous as the hands of Jobs (or whomever) ready themselves to tap on the article — just as the whole of the technology-obsessed world readies itself to find out all about the ins and outs of the imminent sale of the Chrysler Group to Cerebus — friggin' John Appleseed calls. God, I hate that man and his apple tree-spreading ways.

To all the folks attributing the iPhone hype to "fanboys":

At some point, with over 110 million iPods and quite a few OS X Macs out there, the hype machine switches from fanboy noise mode to simply being about

people who are excited about a new product from a company that's been delivering great products at reasonable prices for several years now - consistently and in a more appealing, easy-to-use package than their competitors.

I know there's some segment of the population who will always pooh-pooh everything Apple does, but one has to admit that they're doing something right - and they didn't start growing their computer market share and transforming the music industry by being stupid.
