Me, digital?!

Iphone_kareem I am in the center of a campaign for the iPhone. It’s at the end of an odyssey for me, since I have come into the digital age drip by drip.  I was one of those parents who watched as my children became computer savvy and comfortable with a new technology that has changed the way people communicate. I will have to take some lessons for a while, but the potential of the computer is almost beyond description. I’ll be working with a tutor in order to catch up with the computer-savvy crowd.

My kids tell me there is nothing to be afraid of and that I’ll get it “in no time.” I truly hope so!

As a music and film fan I’m looking forward to downloading films and discs of interest and I’m already aware of the Internet as an awesome research device. Mainly I’m looking forward to exploring the Internet where there is so much to experience. All of my friends have mentioned the huge new world that one encounters when they have their first experience in the Internet landscape. I can’t wait!

I love my iPhone Kareem!!
And I loved the commercial, you deserve it!
Thank you

Congrats. Respect well placed.

I saw this commercial during the NCAA title game last week..props to you

Hi Kareem!

This past weekend I was attending a Seminar in Acapulco, Mexico. I didn't realize, until the last day, that we were staying at the same hotel and somehow my husband and I missed you completely! Friends mentioned they ran into you in the elevator and that you were attending the Yoga seminar. If I wasn't standing around during our seminar I would have signed up for Yoga.

I believe at one point you "waved" from your balcony to my husband and I walking on the beach. He was wearing a Lakers Jersey (I know, it seems shocking to you). Curt seems to think that I "imagined" that but you would be the only one tall enough to have to "duck" back into your room.

We can't believe that we were floors away from actually shaking your hand! Well, it was honor being at the Princess at the same time. Hope to see you soon at a game. Missing you from Carlinville, IL

As a 40-something woman who also has arrived late at the technology party, let me tell you that the iPhone is great, and really pretty easy to use. . . . I managed to get mine set up even without any kids to help me out!

Captain Kareem

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is considered by many fans and sportswriters to be the greatest basketball player of all time. The 7-foot-2 Hall of Fame center, famous for his indefensible skyhook, dominated the NBA for 20 years, first with the Milwaukee Bucks then with the Los Angeles Lakers. Before that he was the star of the UCLA Bruins teams that won three consecutive NCAA championships. Kareem was the NBA's MVP six times, a 19-time all-star and set the NBA all-time records in nine categories. He is the NBA's all-time leading scorer with 38,387 points, a record that may never be broken.

Since retiring as a player in 1989, Kareem has balanced his love of basketball with his love of history. In 2002 he led a USBL team, the Oklahoma Storm, to a championship. Since 2005, he has been the special assistant coach for the Lakers, working with Andrew Bynum.

In 2008 he was chosen The Greatest Player in College Basketball History.

Kareem also remains intellectually active, authoring six bestselling history books intended to popularize the contributions of African-Americans to American culture and history. His books include "Black Profiles in Courage: A Legacy of African-American Achievement"; "Brothers in Arms: The Epic Story of the 761st Tank Battalion, WWII's Forgotten Heroes"; "A Season on the Reservation," which chronicles his time teaching basketball and history on an Apache Indian reservation in White River, Ariz.; and the current New York Times and Los Angeles Times bestseller, "On the Shoulders of Giants: My Journey Through the Harlem Renaissance."

His audio adaptation, "On the Shoulders of Giants: My Audio & Musical Journey through the Harlem Renaissance," is a four-volume compilation read by Bob Costas, Avery Brooks, Jesse L. Martin, and Stanley Crouch, and features private and fascinating conversations with dozens of icons, including Coach John Wooden, Julius Erving, Charles Barkley, Samuel L. Jackson, Maya Angelou, Quincy Jones and Billy Crystal. He has also been written to L.A. Times, under the Sports section.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been appearing on various radio stations and TV shows, as well as the most relevant websites talking about his life and his new audio book, On the Shoulders of Giants.
