Apple As everybody already expected, Apple "unveiled" the new iPhone tonight. It's called the iPhone 4, and brings the iPhone up to par with what's already available on other smartphone platforms, hardware wise, while raising the bar on a few specific points (the display, mostly). The company also announced a name change for its mobile operating system - it's now called iOS. What we didn't get during this year's WWDC keynote? News about the Mac, Mac OS X, or the Apple TV. Make no mistake: the iPhone and iPad is where it's at.

Ok, obviously SOMEBODY wants them, and somebody is probably using them.

But here they have always costed more or less like phone calls (a bit more) and still I've never ever heard of someone using them. I'm sure most people with UMTS handsets are not even aware of the purpose of the little front facing camera. I'm a geek, and I noticed it after weeks on my new work-phone.

Internet/wifi video chats are a whole different beasts, in my mind (and I suspect in the general public's mind here in Italy): if you want to do it you use skype and a computer.

Obviously it's also the consequence of the hideous cost the data transfers always had here. That's very slowly changing.
