The iPhone is a very cool phone. It's got a lot of great apps that puts the power of the internet in the palm of your hand. And as an Apple fanatic I am glad that I can use an Apple product that combines functionality and ease of use with a sweet looking package that goes with me everywhere.
And if you like to play chess, the iPhone is the perfect choice. I use the apps Chess With Friends and of course the Chess.com app to play chess. I'm currently playing 14 games at the same time, we're talking turn-based chess of course. I get notified when it's my turn to make a move and with that many games going on there's always some thinking to do. It drives my wife crazy but hey... that's what I'm here for, right?
The downside to all this is of course, that it really fuels my chess addiction. Playing chess everywhere, anywhere can be quite annoying for your spouse, children and friends. Mmmmmm, this guy from Berlin is busting my balls in this end game... "I'm sorry... what did you say, honey?"
