    "In addition to our disassembly photos..."

    Excuse me MacNN, but why the F**K are you taking credit for someone elses work??

    And on the page this links to, it says that "MacNN OBTAINED disassembly photos" You didn't obtain a thing but link to another site.

    Hire some decent writers!!!

    re: our??

    Man.. chill dude! Do you really think this is worth cursing and freaking out over?

    If so, you have some serious priority issues.

    A) I curse a f**kin lot.. :P

    B) please note that typed text can come across however you want it to.

    That said, i certainly am not freaking out over it.. :) but it is very nice of MacNN to pawn other peoples work as their own.

    My iPhone Experience

    I went to the Apple store around 11:30 pm opening night. There were about 20 people in the store looking at phones. I picked up the demo model and immediately attempted to type. I found that typing on the phone was a miserable experience. I can't remember having a learning curve on my Trio, and I hate my Trio. I typed the word "circle" and got "corcle" and the "brilliant" typing phone couldn't figure out a suggestion. The O and I are right next to each other. I tried with a single finger and it was marginally better, but still riddled with corrections. Bottom-line, I will never pay $800 for a phone to GIVE me this headache. Why they didn't go with a landscape typewriter feature, I will never know.

    re: mlowe

    since you wont pay $800 for a phone for that kind of headache, check out the Apple iPhone. its only $500-$600 :)

    But if that price was a typo on your computer, maybe the issue isnt the iPhone after all :P

    What AT&T did...

    AT&T placed its initial 30 day iPhone order based on sales history of other smart phones and sales projections by their beancounters. They played it safe as they didn't want to be stuck with a lot of excess unsold inventory. Even so, each store received a two week supply for the launch, in case sales were a little higher than anticipated.

    Apple didn't try very hard to get AT&T to increase the quantity on their order. Apple makes more selling iphones directly and gets more store traffic if AT&T has no iPhones to sell for a while. You can bet once AT&T runs out of iPhones that it will be a while before they get their next shipment.

    Note to AT&T: next time, believe the Steve.

    iPhone and MMS

    During 2 years of talking and texting, I've never received an MMS message - no pictures have ever been sent to me on my phone.

    2 days after buying an iPhone, and I get a phone call: Did you get the picture?

    I wish they would have put that feature in the iPhone, cuz now my wife is having a fit because the picture is from her daughter and she wants to know why our $600 iPhone can't do what a free Razr can do...

    ... lol, it's Treo not Trio

    "The O and I are right next to each other. I tried with a single finger and it was marginally better, but still riddled with corrections."

    ... I think you mean riddled with "mistakes"

    Funny that ur so typo-phobic. I do agree that there should be a landscape mode tho.
