Quote From Gizmodo About FaceTime Chat on the iPhone 4

“Can you show me that video chat thing?”

“I can’t. There’s no Wi-Fi here.”

Frustration? Anger? Embarrassment? None of the above. I feel like I’ve let someone down.

There was no limitation in Star Trek. Riker didn’t have to have a hotspot set up in order to chat from Farpoint Station. James Bond doesn’t have to locate a Starbucks to talk to Q. Batman doesn’t…Batman doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to. Because it was 70 years ago, Dick Tracy had the entire AT&T network all to himself to make video calls.

“But hey, it’s got a better screen.”

I agree
