Steve Jobs tries to show how great their new phone is but can't get it to work at the unveiling presentation. :laughhard

Gizmodo's in a hissy fit because Apple banned them from the speech due to the stolen iPhone prototype mess. Still a funny video, though. Right up there with the legendary Bill Gates BSOD video.

It would have been better if I'd watched that on my Droid.

Did they unveil the $1500 Apple printer that looks really good and just works? ;)

Works for 1/3 as long as other printers before you have to replace the cartridge? I still think an excellent slogan for Apple would be Price Gouging...Re-Invented

Anyway, the iPhone 4, about which I probably know more than anybody here, looks like a great disappointment....there is NOTHING on it which is not already available on an Android phone somewhere...

the EVO and the Incredible are genuinely revolutionary devices...the iPhone 4 is a very modest, very minor revision of what has been around for 3 years already.....

Apple's attempts at 'innovation' have already been done by the EVO and the Incredible....Google preempted Apple by getting there first....something tells me this is going to be happening more and more....

There are 4-6 new Android phones planned every year, versus ONE iPhone, it is going to be difficult for Apple to keep up

And it has none of the features that people really want...

support for SD cards---> no
removable battery---> no
open development and open standards----> no
the ability to purchase apps from more than ONE central source--->no

Android has all of these things and more

Why do techies constantly confuse nerd features with what the vast majority of consumers want? Most people couldn't give a rat's arse and the only thing holding them back in the US is that AT&T has a crappy network and our cellular infrastructure is mutually incompatible.

I so disagree with this statement. It most certainly matters what you want to do with the computer.

Me too. In fact, I am changing my avatar at the polite urging of the armed uniformed gentleman behind me. Between them and Google what could go wrong?

So the Evo and Incredible also have 2 cameras, 300 DPI screen, and video calling.

What would you use SD cards for?

I've had my IPod Touch for about 2 years and the batteries works fine.

Open development so we can have all the bugs and compatibility issues? No Thanks

I haven't felt bereft at the lack of apps I need being available.

And I haven't any stories of the millions of users storming the gates of Cupertino clamoring for those items.

BTW, the problem was with the wi fi networks, not the Iphone. Which is why Face Time is only available on Wi Fi now, as SJ noted Apple is working with providers to free up the bandwidth needed for 3G.
