It's not like it's natural excitement. They spend tens of millions of dollars to create it.

it does 3 more unique things than the iPhone 3GS. Big fricking deal.


If you have a 3Gs it probably is a big deal. I question your actual need for a smart phone if you don't think it is.

I don't see people walking across their desks, bedside tables, and countertops. while I understand your point typically my phone cord is not plugged in or long enough to trip over unless.. but I suppose we will see soon enough..

I have an iPod for music, so having the 16g is for me. Is it slower than the 32g?

The only reason I've paid attention to the release date is because I beat the hell out of my phones.

Advertising is the great modern artform and Apple has some master artists on their payroll. The more I hear people whining and bitching about Apple "fanboys" the more inclined I am to buy more shares.

Microsoft isn't going anywhere. But Apple is taking a chunk out of there arse now with the iPhone and especially now with the iPad. People are buying Pads instead of laptops. Apple desktop sales continuing to climb in a slow market. That puts the hurt on Ballmer.

I'm not sure why I even have an iPhone. I do like how it is compatible with my other tech (school makes us purchase macbooks and iPads). Other than that and being able to get on the internet, all I use it for is making phone calls.

Personally, I hate mac products. I hate their operating system. I hate that my school makes me buy one when every computer in the entire hospital isn't a mac.

Scruffy is mad.

You poor bro?

ETA: Time to put the iPhone 4 on ebay and sell it unlocked and jailbroken for about $300. If you're smart with your smartphones, they ultimately all end up being free and can also actually turn you a small profit

You're kidding right? Have you seen iPad sales figures and PC laptop sales figures? You think people plunking down $600-$800.00 aren't skipping that new laptop?

It's for another thread but for 95% of the people a good tablet will do 95% of what they need done- and very efficiently at that. Most people won't miss a laptop at all.

No one is mad. I'm just saying that there's no justification for buying something for $400 that isn't even remotely close to being worth that much.

All the while, I can get a 3GS for $0.99.

you're free to believe that, but don't slam other people for having a different opinion. again, it's $199 on contract.

I have a 3GS and this is no big deal whatsoever. I have no problems with my phone at all.

OK, I thought the 16 vs 32 was the memory, not the speed of the phone. I feel like such a sell out going to an iPhone. I still a crackberry.

I'm poor because I don't want to pay $400 for a phone that does the same things as my 3GS?
