Why I won’t be getting an iPhone

After reading Pogue and Mossberg and others mouthing off about the iPhone, I’m intrigued, but not actually interested in buying one yet. For two incredibly simple reasons:

1) You can’t copy and paste text.

2) The “period” key is on a different keyboard from the letters, so in order to punctuate your sentences, you have to switch to the “symbols” keyboard.

Despite all the great new features, and despite the fact that all the other stuff people complain about doesn’t bother me, I just can’t get past these two things. Fix this, Apple, and I’ll get on the 8GB bandwagon, I promise!
