We love the idea of making video calls, but in the media frenzy that inevitably seems to follow any Apple announcement
these days we’re wondering if something might have been missed. Privacy.
Sure it’s cool to see your friends on holiday in California or the kids at nursery but what if it’s a client chasing a deadline or worse still someone trying to sell you a water cooler? It’s not going to be quite so easy to finish a call when they can see the whites of your eyes is it?
That’s where iGuise comes in. It’s the must have accessory for any iPhone 4 running FaceTime. Simply tell the caller that you have popped out and that you will get yourself to return their call when you get back. Easy.

Now we love Apple as much as the next ‘fanboy’ but we find this last feature a little hard to swallow. Having a removable battery on the iPhone is a bit like having a power supply on the Duracell Bunny
or sliding doors on a Delorean
– somehow it just doesn’t feel right. If the Infinite loop lads and ladies really want to raise the bar then how about ‘iPort’ an iPhone based teleportation app? That would really shift some kit – although to be fair shifting people (over the current 3G network) might prove a little trickier…
