I put out an appeal not long ago to see if I could find an iPhone 2G that was just sitting in a drawer somewhere because The Wife’s has been acting up, and, well, this is a dumb time to buy an iPhone since a new one is expected by pretty much everyone “soon”.
Jim Ray sent me his 2G (which looks almost brand new) and I am syncing it to iTunes as we speak. Well, as I speak. Well, we aren’t really speaking at all, I’m typing and you’re reading. Well, I mean, you will, eventually. What were we talking about? Oh yeah, iTunes.
Jim renamed the iPhone “pigeon” before sending it along, which was very clever of him. Either that or it was always named “pigeon” which is a little weird.
Anyway, I caught this screenshot of the game Bastard Pigeon being sync’d to my iPhone named ‘pigeon’ and thought I’d share it with you.
You’ll note that they call it “Bast * Pigeon” presumably so the name will fit under the icon when it is displayed on the iPhone, and also perhaps as a minor bit of censorship. (We’ve already taught The Boy to refer to it as ‘Bad Word Pigeon’ instead of its ‘official’ name.)
BTW I will be reviewing Bastard Pigeon for TUAW soon enough, but my summary review is this: 99¢ to fly a pigeon and score points by pooping on people and cars? Totally worth it. The sound effects of people screaming as they get hit? Just a bonus.
