Zack Morris

Caldwell dips their toe in the waters of smart phone (specifically iPhone connectivity):

My first thought was “Wtf?  Are there a bunch of grandpas working at Caldwell?” LOL at wired connectivity and the fact it uses the audio jack.  Maybe that would have passed for acceptable back in 1997.  Oh wow if their app actually looks as bad in real life as it does in that screenshot that’s amazing too.  Caldwell has been around for a while though so I’m sure they are used to having money thrown at them due to the fact their stuff is sold in a bazillion (accurate figure) retail stores across the world.  I prefer when companies push the envelope and strive for the BEST possible product, but whatever works I guess.  I feel like donning a slick Zack Morris style outfit, grabbing a fly Kelly Kapowski and heading to the range and hooking this bad boy up to an iPhone inside a Motorola DynaTac-looking case just for kicks.  Shooting some Principal Belding targets no doubt.

There is no Android app yet, which isn’t surprising because companies generally seem to always do Apple first.  Last time I checked Android has steadily been gaining market share though, so I’m sure we’ll start to see apps quicker / sooner than before.  Side note, I placed my Google Nexus 5 order a few days ago (After the big launch day rush of course because I’m an idiot) and I should have it by the first week of December.  I still really like my Nexus 4, but I figure I’ll just sell it as soon as I have the Nexus 5.

Zack-Morris-PhoneThoughts?  You mad at this old-timey connectivity?  Does Caldwell rustle your jimmies in general?
