  1. that’s crazy, hey doug… u have any ideas if they r gonna have the 3g in stock normally in the next 3 weeks?

  2. The 1 millionth should’ve gotten his/her iphone for free.

  3. We will get a co-op alternative to the Australian telephone companies up and running if 10,000 people join:

    Please let everyone know! Hopefully an alternative will be more receptive to new technology and won’t charge as much as it does for the iPhone’s basic functions.

    At the very least, it’ll send pressure to Optus, etc. to lower their prices.
