I’ve been hard on Apple for the antenna debacle, and so should every gadget lover. It may seem like I’m picking on them, but I’m really not. I’m just highlighting an obvious issue that should bother anyone. When brand new gear gets released and it doesn’t work as promised, the company that put it on the market should be criticized for their mistake. If you consider this bashing, then you’re an obvious Apple fanboy, and with any fanboy they’ll defend their precious product or company with blind abandon regardless of what’s right or wrong.
Out of all the crap the iPhone 4 has been getting I came across a video today that showcases why this new device is amazing and worshiped by geeks across the world. Two film students at USC made a short called, “Apple of My Eye”, just using the iPhone 4 and the iMovie software on it. Basically, they filmed the movie and then edited it on the phone. It’s quite an amazing achievement and showcases why the 4 is badass, and not why it sucks, like the reception issue articles that have flooded the net.
It’s not a mind blowing movie, but keep in mind that it was filmed and edited on a freaking phone. That is where the appreciation for what was achieved should kick in. The 4 and its HD video capabilities are essentially changing how films can be made. No longer do you need expensive equipment and software to make a high quality film. Anyone with some know-how and creativity can make anything they dream up with a phone!! That is the innovation I expect to see from Apple and the iPhone 4. Take a look for yourself below, and watch in amazement as the 4 finally shines rather than sh*tting the bed. You’ve been amazed…
