Brief kudos to iPhone’s tiny little speaker. I mean for iTunes use. Nobody will claim it’s of audiophile quality (or even stereo for that matter!). But I never thought about how handy a speaker on an iPod would be.
Tonight I was playing with Ariella on her playmat, winding her down for bedtime. She likes The Beatles. I grabbed the iPhone and played Yellow Submarine, all without leaving the floor. She loved it.
The speaker has also been handy when watching video podcasts or stupid YouTube videos. No reason to go find the headphones when I’m alone in a room.
By the way, does anyone else find themselves using YouTube just as an excuse to play with the iPhone? Most videos really are as dumb as they say…
