Live Earth Gives iPhone a Run For Its Money
I found an some interesting information at Pete Blackshaw's blog, Consumergeneratedmedia.com. He says "The buzz jury is still out, but there's just no question the Live Earth global concert is giving iPhone buzz a run for the money. Whether it's sustainable (pun intended) or not will take time to determine, but the concert does appear to have succeeded in generating a significant, and growing, global conversation on the global warming issue.
Personally, I think it will be interesting to see how long the iPhone maintains high buzz levels. Buzz has lowered considerably since its official release. Also, the iPhone is receiving negative buzz regarding its battery replacement. Negative word-of-mouth concerning battery replacement and distribution (i.e. availability through AT&T / Cingular only) may actually keep the iPhone from becoming as popular as many hope.
