Tuesday, October 19th (Mr. Steed’s Birthday), 2010

In October 2010, a band in New York City called We Are Atomic Tom had their instruments STOLEN.  Fortunately, everyone in the band had an iPhone 4 and downloaded apps for a drum, guitar and microphone and hooking their phones to amps played a complete song on their iPhones and taped the YouTube viral hit video on their friends’ iPhones.  Is this just really smart use of the iPhone?  Does it make you want to get an iPhone?  If you were to DISCUSS this with someone else, do you think it would make you think differently about the iPhone, Android phones or the new Windows 7 phone?  Explain your answer.

    no it doesnt make me want to get an iphone just because of the apps. if i would wand an iphone i would get it because it is a phone not for the apps. and why would you put all your music on an phone when you could play it in real life

    Really i think it is stupid to get it n your phone. because one what if you have all that music of your phone and you drop it in water or something? what will you do then? and another thing is what if you have to pay alot just for the app . i think it is usless. but it might be worth something to somebody in a band .

    Yes i think that a good idea and it does make me want to make me get an iphone. The reason why is because i can just buy a phone that does all that stuff instead of buying an instruments it probably more money. Now am sure that the iphone is expensive but not as much of buying drums, microphone, guitar, and all that stuff. but i would get one these phone their really cool and their worth it.

    I don’t think that i would want an iphone due to this. I mean it helped them but, it doesn’t give me a reason to want one. And no i don’t think it would make me think differently about any smart phone. Because i don’t really care about them.

    i think this is a smart use of a iphone because you can make music and you don’t have to have a real guitar, drums, and things like that and it’s cool and everybody would or should be interested in it and if i was to discuss this with someone else it wouldn’t change my mind

    This is very cool, but yes it would change the idea of getting one because it shows it can replace a lot of things you lose. With the android and windows 7 i don’t know a lot about but if it has these i want one because it seems cool to have. The band was pretty good to think of this too.

    I do think it’s smart use for iPhones. I think it’s pretty insane that could of done that with their iPhones. I do think I wont an iPhone more now. This doesn’t mean I would die for one. The apps are awesome. I think this does make me feel different about them.

    No this isn’t a good use of the i phone personally. I wouldn’t get a i phone because it’s just not worth paying that much money for a phone. Maybe if I was talking to somebody about it because they could have something on the phone that I really like. So it just depends on how the phone works. I would probably get a windows 7. But not a i phone because it cost a lot. Also they keep re upgrading the phones every year.

    Yes it is a smart use of a i phone and it dose not want me to get a i phone any time soon

    this a really smart use for the i phone. yea if i told someone this they would like it. yea it makes me wont 1. i phone are better than androids because they do more stuff.i phones are the best.

    this does not really make me want a iphone because that is just one thing that a iphone can do. there is many other phones that can do more because they have better things in them like for example better icons or items in them. i would not want to discuss this with another person they might think differently than what i think. the iphone not everyone thinks the same way although it is good for downloading things other phones can be better at sending stuff faster. every phone has something different that they can do best.

    I think that’s Really cool!!
    The way someone can improvise using technology, I never knew that the Iphone 4 could do that! I Think that was a very smart move for the Band.
    I mean if they would have went and bought the real things it would take them forever to get all the money. The band just saved themselves A LOT of money!

    I think that having the drums, guitar, and microphone app, is very interesting. I think that it is a good idea. Now i can see that the i-phones can help out alot. It is smart use for the i-phones. Yes it does want to make me get an i-phone. I have always wanted one, but it wouldn’t have really killed me if i didn’t get one because i never really knew all of the cool stuff it did. It doesn’t really make me think differently because i have always liked the i-phones.

    It dose make me think differently about the i phone because in the i phone 4 it has more deals on it and has more advances.

    Yes because people now know what to do if their stuff gets stolen. No because I thought they window 7 phone was a joke and I really never thought of the iphone like in that way. Do I think it will change my mind , no , Do you think it is important to me , no. those questions basically answered the answer. I wouldn’t changed my mind because of a band who lost there instruments, therefore I really don’t care

    i want an iphone because it is so alsome i mean it is the best phone around. It is best at every thang like, the camera 5 megs is the best you can get on a phone no other one has that, true HD videos i mean you cant get better than this…… 🙂

    I kinda think it’s a stupid.No because you could do everything on a regular iphone but iphone does more a little more than a regular phone does.iphones are starting to get on my nurves.But to me it’s all the same only expect you can download all different kinds of apps on to the iphone.

    Oct 19, 2010 @ 09:10:33

    I think its cool that the iphone can do that and yea it does make me want to have iphone because of all the stuff it does on just that little phone. But it does cost a lot of money


  19. alexis jarboe
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 11:06:02

    i think that’s really neat how you can play music and stuff on it i wish i had one! i think that thins will catch on because this is pretty cool but i wonder if it will brake easily and stuff? :/

    Me personally think that its cool that you can do that with a i phone. It wouldn’t make me want the i phone but it would be good for a band that got their instruments stolen or had to pawn them. I would not get a I phone because i would think that they could get viruses very easily like computers because its pretty much a I phone.


  22. Jessica Payne
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 11:10:03

    i want a i phone now because it has a lot of kool stuff on that little phone but i would probably not get it because it will coast a lot of money . i really think it is kool it can do that to.


  23. samuel
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 11:10:24

    well people should not use there i phone.


    Oct 19, 2010 @ 11:11:03

    yea because you are still making your music an getting money.no it doesn’t make me want to get one because i don’t publish music an i don’t have any instrums stolen.

    It is good use of the iPhone. Yes it does make me want an iPhone cause the apps and all the other cool stuff. It might make me think differently about the iPhone but then again it might not. Because something could be wrong about them. But you can download apps that are music instruments in case something happens like what happen to the Atomic Tom.

    Oct 19, 2010 @ 11:13:18

    iphones are cool. because they can help you with stuff. like get info or other stuff. or pla y music. but i want one.


  27. Jaython Elliott
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 11:13:30

    Yes it is smart use of the iPhone. Yes it does make me want to have an iPhone. It does because you can hook it up to an AMP. You can also play games. It can be instruments.

    This is amazing! this is a great use for the Iphone because they are interactive apps that helped them play their own music instead of listening to it. The new Iphone is something that every one will want. It is a revolution in the industry because of the new capabilities the iphone has will better the way people use the iphone now. I can’t believe the new things that this phone can do.

    personaly to yourself its a good idea to learn guitar good training cool phone its a keeper and if i could aford it i would buy it though i do not need a phone but for the bands sake………………………………….. it would be extreamly stupid to play that at there band openings like that is retarded. people go to see talent its cool if your alone or with freinds but in front of billions of stranger it would be the stupidest idea since that imagination band.

    No, i don’t really care for the iphone apps. If i got a iphone it would be because it has internet that actually works on the iphone, not like other phones that the internet doesn’t work on them. And its cool that they didn’t have any instruments and they used there iphone’s to sing and “play” there instruments.
    But that app doesn’t change how i feel about the iphone, what would that app do for me? But i do think the iphone is better then the android phone.

    ITS NOT COOL THAT THEY SOLED THERE insturments . but they can play good with there cell phones. they are really good. the iphone is good for them. they can play good on the piano.


  33. Jonathan Davis
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 12:32:36

    Yes it is a smart idea. I think so because they didn’t need to buy new instruments. This makes me think that an Iphone would be important. If I ever spoke to someone about this, it would kinda make me want one and think they are awesome. Iphones are cell phones with lots of apps and batter text messaging. I still kinda think they aren’t great because they have some calling problems.

    i really dont care about iphones forreal i mean yeh they are cool phones or whatever but i aint like tripping to go and get one! *Happy Birthday Mr.Steed*(:


  35. ♥Alexa Stewart♥
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:21:08

    Well Just because some people in a band lost all there instruments…. I don’t really care. and No that doesn’t make me want a I phone.

    HAPPY B-DAY MR. STEED!!!!!!! Yess i-phones is a good idea. I-phones keep getting upgraded to do these amazing things. That would be so AWEZOMEFUL to make band out of using i-phones.

    There just another phone. it seems cool to have but then again it doesnt really matter

    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:23:33

    i think its a smart use of the iphone for people that are in bands because the same thing could happen that happened to this band. i dont think this make me get an iphone though because its not like im in a band or anything so it wouldn’t matter and it would be still the same thing even if you had the first iphone. i think it would only be really useful to people that are in bands.


  39. lena♥
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:24:16

    it makes them sound cool and might make you want to go get one..its smart too..but it doesn’t make me want to go get one cause its not even worth to get one if your not in the band..well for anything like that get it if you want it..it don’t change what i think about the i phone at all..

    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:24:45

    i think that it is a good invention.i saw the commercial the other day. and it does alot of different things. i think it is a good phone to have and everybody would get one.


  41. William Fogle
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:25:07

    I think that this is cool. If they can play a full gig like that, I would get an iphone 4. I won’t get a Droid or Windows 7 phone. They are just trying to be an iphone knock off. This is so awesome.


  42. Tiffany Freibert
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:25:33

    no it doesnt make me want to get an i phone. why would u want to get an iphone just for the apps? it’s a waste of money. i don’t really care about iphones. i have an ipod that’s good enough for me.

    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:25:45

    I would like to get a Iphone. They are cool how you can get all those apps on it. I like them because they are touch screen and their texting systems a lot better than normal phones. You can put music on them just like and Ipod that makes them even better. I like them.

    🙂 Happy Birthday 🙂

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR.STEED I HOPE THAT YOU HAVE HAD A VERY GOOD DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Like a lot of people think that iphones are cool but for real they are extremely gay because they break super fast and they dont have more in value than a normal regular cell phone.


  45. kyle hatler
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:28:25

    i think it is smart. i wouldnt mind having one. It probably would change my mind. i dont know anything about it though. i would get one if i could.


  46. Breanna Hardy
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:30:31

    I think that their chice and using their iphones was a good idea beacuase it basically saved whatever they were doing at the time with thier music.To me if i had a choice between a iphone and like a cricket phone I would choose a cricket phone because your bill may not be as high as a iphone bt then at that it depends on what you get added of taken off of your phone at that time.Well if i actually had a conversation with someone about phones i think i would consider wanting the phone but it may just be use-less after a while because i feel like if it coast lot to buy it then it will coast alot to repair it .


  47. jerimy
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:32:48

    i think i would like the iphone 4 alot. to me it is a good use for the iphone 4. it wouldn’t change my mind if i talked it over with someone cause as soon as i seen the iphone 4 i wanted it.

    For one it is an awesome idea to start. That is weird how they thought of that idea, it is also cool. This really did want to make me get an iphone. But i would be afraid to have pne of them because i could break it easy. tHATS WHAT I THINK!!!!!!!

    No this does not make me want to get a iphone because it is just app. you can download the same thing on a computer. if i baught a iphone for each instument it would be a waste of money because i could buy the instuments and play the same thing in real life instead of on a phone


  51. Sean Cole
    Oct 19, 2010 @ 13:39:15

    Yes i think it is a smart idea but it doesn’t make me want to get an iphone more. i know the app sounds cool and stuff and it probably is but it doesn’t make me want to get it any worse. the iphone is aswome and id love to get one but they are expensive and so are the apps. the touch screen is my favorite part cause i love touch screen phones, and the iphone can even be used as an ipod.


    Oct 19, 2010 @ 14:09:41

    well it doesnt really make me want to get one but


    Oct 19, 2010 @ 14:10:08

    well it doesnt really make me want to get one but it is smart and cool.


    Oct 19, 2010 @ 14:10:58

    it doesnt make me want to get one but i do think its cool. i dont like touch screens

    i don’t know if this is the answer to gaming on a phone. (if there is one.) i sure would witch my phone for the psp phone this phone looks aswome. yes it is looks a little cooler then an iphone not much but it dose. it looks so cool you can play psp games on it, touch screen, camera, etc. and this phone will defiantly put psp on top. THIS PHONE IS SO COOL.
