Oh, that iPhone.

Yesterday Linksys, a part of Cisco, introduced Apple's phone. The iPhone does not live up to the hype surrounding the mythical phone Apple is supposed to announce. For example – unlike Apple's rumored yet unconfirmed feature set for their as yet unannounced and so far unacknowledged communication device – the iPhone will not:

Mow the lawn on alternate Saturdays
Cook spaghetti al dente
Babysit the kids
Call in sick with a believable excuse
Split cord wood properly
Remove plantar warts
Feed the cat
Make your clothes smell springtime fresh.

It will make telephone calls with VoIP. If you want it to, it will also make a regular "land-line" phone call.
