Microsoft pushes for Silverlight on G1 and iPhone: “Microsoft reportedly wants to push Silverlight onto the iPhone, PC World reports.
…and they did. Or anyway they turned it on silent mode. But now I constantly get buged with the sweet humm of the iPhones buzzing on the table in the conference room. Today I spent all day at a management seminar, and had the pleasure of siting next to Soren Kenner, if you dont know him picture a really buzy guy, with the natural consequence of a red hot glowing phone.
Anyhow today was no different, his and other phones constantly buzzed on the table. Thats ok but why the hell dont they do anything about it? I know! You dont want the other guy to know you dont want to speak with him right now, so it will be better to leave him in tbe beleive that you did not hear the phone.
So here it is… Normal phones will terminate the call if you hit the hang-up button or the power off button. But not the iPhone! It will just turn off the vibration but let the call continue untill it rings out. Thats smart thinking by Apple! You did react on the call but you made it clear that you for some reason cant answer right now. You can continue your work, the people arround you wont get bothered, and the guy in the other end wont know you didnt want to talk to him.
I love my iPhone!
So in the future please use this nice small feature.
