If im honest my involvement in computers is just my job and playing on my xbox. Real life get in the way of computing years ago, and to be honest I am happy with that.  Getting married soon and can't wait.

I was showing off my iPhone 3GS to folks last night and realised that I hadn't had that much enthusiasm for a tech toy since my Amiga 1000.  I think the market and the interest has moved.  Laptops are sooooooo 2007.....

Exactly.  I want a 3GS but can't afford the $400 upgrade fee, so I'll just wait until the 4G or whatever's coming..

For me, things like the 3G and netbooks, and little devices which hold more power than the Amiga ever did are the new thing.  I just wish I could figure out how to develop for the App Store to make a couple hundred grand.  :)

Is anyone selling an "idiots guide to iPhone programming" course out there (preferably video-based)?

I'd just be happy if they got the 3G network covering the cities, i frequently drop into 2G even in Sydney, and it's dog slow compared to 3G.  I don't think the mobile phone folks know what 4G is yet, the standard won't even be approved before 2012 to 2015.

My guess is Apple will come up with a new naming convention for the iPhone. I can't see them staying with a name for that long waiting for the new technology and then use 4G when 4G networks become available...

Here in Australia they finance the phone as well, so you pay nothing upfront and pay off the phone during your contract as art of the monthly fee, that's what got me a 3GS...

I look forward to the iPad, small is beautiful ;)

3g coverage in the UK is pretty brilliant to be honest.  I live in wales and I get 3.5g where I live

You must be joking. It's not even close.
