iPhone makes Phone Numbers “Clickable”

The iPhone is an “Internet Communicator.”
 
An Innovation Most People Probably Missed
 It’s a click, only betterThere are quite probably a number of people who use the Internet and have no idea what a URL is. Everyone who uses the Internet uses URLs every day. URL is an acronym (as we all know, acronyms are the fuel that runs the engine of technology). URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. It’s a fancy name for a unique pointer to something. Of course, we had URLs for decades before the Internet, but they were known by a far less technological name which didn’t even form an acronym: the phone number.
 
Ever since the Internet came to be used in everyday business, phone numbers have wanted to become URLs. First, many began to drop the dashes, seperating prefixes and area codes with dots to make the numbers look more advanced. In other words, to make them look more like domain names.

The only problem was that computers and phones were different devices. Computers had no use for phone numbers, since they were capable of using real URLs and e-mail addresses to communicate. Phones had no use for URLs or e-mail addresses, because they had the old reliable tried-and-true phone number.

In the recent Apple Keynote address, a massive tectonic shift in communications technology took place, and it happened without much attention being brought to it at all. The Apple iPhone highlights and makes phone numbers clickable, just like URLs.

Now it seems like a simple, even unremarkable feature of a device that at first seems far more concerned with music playlists, Johnny Depp and aerial views of the Colosseum in Rome. But as we’ve often seen, the most remarkable technologies and innovations are often overlooked, literally, when first introduced.

Clicking on a phone number just like an e-mail address is a feature which almost requires a timpani roll. Oh sure, other mobile phones may or may not have had this feature before, but until Steve Jobs clicked on a phone number in an e-mail and the sound of a phone ringing was heard in the Moscone Auditorium, the real ramifications of the phone number as URL were scarcely understood beyond speculation.

What is the ultimate difference between e-mail and voice mail? What’s the difference between text messaging and e-mail? What’s the difference between e-mail and a blog? Phone numbers as URLs don’t just blur the differences between these various communications technologies, they remove the differences. At some point in the future, by leveraging this lack of difference, it may be possible to truly unify communications so that there is no longer any such thing as a “phone number” or “e-mail address.” There may be a point where people communicate with each other via one “URL” which adapts based on the type of message: voice or text.

Then again, with the iPhone there’s very little difference between computers and phones now, so it stands to reason the distinction between communications technologies would begin to diminish. The iPhone was introduced as a “Internet Communicator.”

Internet Communicator indeed.

How to Replace a Broken iPhone Screen & Other Parts

Many iPhone owners love that their phones have a clear and durable glass screen, but also worry about how to handle it if they somehow break the glass. Like many things in life, it’s best to focus on preventing the problem so that it never happens. Avoid placing your phone in situations where it may be hit or impacted. Never drop it, or get a case that protects the edges of the phone and adds some shock absorption for accidental falls. Its surprising how often things get bumped in your pocket. Sitting on your phone is never a good idea. Perhaps the easiest way to shatter the screen is to put it in a bag with bulky objects that repeatedly hit the screen. You can buy a protecter for the screen, but it will not do much to stop direct impact damage.
Once your screen is broken, it’s not a repair that most people can do themselves. It’s best to send it into Apple and expect to pay a large repair charge. There may also be shops in your town who can do the repair for less. Before letting them do it, try to get them to prove that they have done acceptable repairs on phones with similar damage in the past – you don’t want to be there first practice phone with a shattered screen! It can be terribly sad to break the screen in your phone. Just remember that it’s only an object and that it can happen to anyone. Just try to make sure that you only break one iPhone screen in your lifetime!
