Apple The iPhone is out and about, and everyone waiting in line for hours/days got one (including Woz, and the mayor of Philadelphia who apparently had nothing better to do). Unboxing pictures here, dissecting pictures here, PDF manual, and one of the best-designed iPhone web apps can be found here: the iPhoneAppsManager (requires a Safari/Webkit browser to work). Update: Reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Update 2: It is claimed Apple UK will announce a 3G iPhone on Monday, as well as deals with Vodafone and T-Mobile. Update 3: Lots of screenshots reveal no "weekend/weekday" recurrence in the alarm app.

That's the problem. The iPhone seems to be a US-only product for now. It might take some time until it shows up in stores in the rest of the world. I wish these large companies unleashed their products world-wide simultaneously. The iPhone looks pretty cool, I saw on the web that you can even watch a movie on it...

In the meantime, here's some fun :-)

Apple stuff are quite fun to play with Appletv with macosx on it which produces a cheap mac ;)

Well since iphone is true macosx maybe a bit stripped out of computer hardware features it makes things easier to install stuff i imagine.

Rumors that dont scare me off:
1. MMS feature , there is officially no Mms on the iphone but how hard would it be to make a 3rd part mms sender?

2.lack of 3g, so what? never used that network would probably be overestimated with its built in wifi:D

3. 3g circuits consume alot of power but you never know if someone will make a software solution to that.

For me playing midi files properly is the best in the phone its a proof of good soundchip , and i like that the phone has mp3 player seperately from ringtone midis
so music fades out and ringtone plays , after the call music smoothly fades in from where it got interrupted.

>3rd part mms sender?

Very. Impossible without an SDK. There are no companies I know that would pay the MMS price for you, just because the app can't "talk" to the phone to send an MMS.

I'm just waiting for a similar software solution that will upgrade my dial-up internet connection to DSLAM. There must be a piece of freeware out there?
