The iPhone represents an important moment in both the short history of mobile media and the long history of cultural technologies. Like the Walkman of the 1980s, it marks a juncture in which notions about identity, individualism, lifestyle and sociality require rearticulation. this book explores not only the iPhonea€™s particular characteristics, uses and qaffects, q but also how the qiPhone momentq functions as a barometer for broader patterns of change. In the iPhone moment, this study considers the convergent trajectories in the evolution of digital and mobile culture, and their implications for future scholarship. Through the lens of the iPhonea€”as a symbol, culture and a set of material practices around contemporary convergent mobile mediaa€”the essays collected here explore the most productive theoretical and methodological approaches for grasping media practice, consumer culture and networked communication in the twenty-first century.Cultural Technologies, Mobile Communication, and the iPhone Larissa Hjorth, Jean Burgess, Ingrid Richardson ... oldthemein telephonic communicationa€” video calling.46 TheFaceTime application onthe iPhone 4 provideda useful fillipto videotelephony ...
