Colour me impressed

(for some reason I wanna write colour American-style there. probably cuz of Color Me Badd)

Uploading a 4.5MB pdf of today’s NYT to your own server… accessing it via iPhone.. bingo! I totally expected Safari to crash. And contrary to my expectations I can close the browser and return to it without Safari insisting on reloading it. So I can even take it on the bus on my way to Homebase. 😀 Apparently emailing them to yourself is also a good way to do this.

(tho of course it would be even better if I could just upload pdfs to the iPhone directly, just like mp3s and photos. and yes yes I know Tobias, your HTC probably does all that. but it ain’t half as sexy as my iPhone!)

Indeed, the Adobe Reader for Windows Mobile can handle 4.5 MB PDF’s. But anyway, why don’t you just read the New York Times as normal web page? Isn’t that what the iPhone is all about, the “real Web”?

Cuz it still does take ages to load on non-wifi (e.g on a bus), and, as far as I’m aware, does not have everything the paper version has (at least not for free… )
And I am currently enamoured with the concept of having a proper newspaper with you, but iPhone-sized. :)) (and free 😐 )

You don’t need more than SPIEGEL ONLINE. 🙂
