  1. So am i to understand that at this point i have bought 2 different versions of the iphone and now i would have to buy a 3rd to get the official video recording capabilities? that’s BS. I know that i can use cycorder but this is just greedy that they keep stringing us along as if its gonna be a software upgrade.

    • Agreed. What an absolute load of BS! So I started with a silver brick, then advanced to the 3G and now i have to buy a 3GS? Nice one Apple.

  2. Jonesyxxiv says

    Why is voice commands a 3GS feature, isn’t that something that is only software? Why can’t that be available on the current 3G?

  3. Brooke can you tell me what theme you have in this http://www.appleiphoneschool.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/rotationinhibitor012.png the main theme not the sb setting theme

  4. u know what makes me mad? is that they could have SO EASILY put a 5MP camera but Nooooooooooo, instead they just settle with a 3 MP camera.

    And i haven’t read anything about an attempt to update the SPEAKER, i really hate it that it sounds like some one is spittin out the bottom of my iphone when i put some hip hop music with some bass on.

    I love the iPhone really, i do! But its those tiny stuff that would really make it top notch!

    Anyway can’t wait to try the “3G S”.
