The iPhone on the road, part 1: Iowa

Travels with the iPhone

In between jobs, I'm lucky to have a few weeks off for vacation. My first destination was Iowa City, Iowa, m hometown. Iowa has been great for fiber optic connections and is not as rural as one would expect. That said, my parents don't have a broadband connection instead opting for a quaint dial-up connection. Lucky for me, EDGE network as actually faster than my parent's desktop computer.

But, the iPhone proved a lifesaver when it came to a very Iowa pastime - a presidential election event, i.e., an appearance by Sen. Barrack Obama. Somehow I ended up on-stage with him, one of those people standing behind a candidate as they talk about this or that. Of course, I wanted to take pictures and I brought my trusty camera with me. But, there was one catch - I forgot my battery in its charger - d-oh!

Ah, but the iPhone with its camera managed to save me and capture a few snapshots of this event, including the backside of a potential president. It turned out that local media caught some far better pictures of the event, but still, it was nice that I could at least snap a couple as I am far less likely to forget my iPhone than my camera.

Here are the pics from the iPhone.
