I showed them the iPhone apps Balloonimals and Top Gun. Also showed them a panoramic photo I took with Pano today in the hotel lobby.
None of the college students here I visited with on our break had heard of Facebook or Twitter. They thought my iPhone was pretty amazing.

@mnjorgensen I really was touched by that story and post. I appreciate you sharing it, and was glad to pass it along :-)

@kschroed I tried the B&N ebook app 4iPhone and didn’t like it as much. I will check out the actual reader too… Why does it beat Kindle?
