    the find my phone this is neat

    as well as the "fuck someone stole my phone, ERASE ALL DATA"

    Would be better if it set a random password on the phone afterwards, and told you that in the browser. "Hey, I erased your shit, and made the phone unusable for the asshole. You're welcome."

    i think there's currently a way to set a pw that will erase the phone if it's entererd wrong enough times in a row in a certain time span. Don't know if its leaves the pw up afterwards to cock-block the thief though

    I think it does: Find My Phone image from demo...

    Oh cool. Must've missed that. I think, once they release a new model, I'm going to have to march into an Optus store and demand they take all my money.

    HA oh God yes...

    If anyone ever steals my iPhone, I'm putting on some military grease paint, getting some serious body armor from my military buds, grabbing my (legal - no full-auto) M4, a belt of ammo, and knocking politely on their door.....

    Uh.

    Did anyone just hear audio that went something like:

    'are you more afraid of sharks, or our economic climate?'

    'I'm more afraid of sharks, blh blah blah blah'

    Because I don't have a lot of things open on my PC, but I'm pretty sure I'm not hallucinating.

    I thought the civilian M4 was the AR-15?

    I really want to know what the deal is with tethering.

    One thing you have to realize though, is that all US carriers have always been complete dicks when it comes to tethering. AT&T will support it, but you'll have to pay for a more expensive data package.

    My guess how tethering will work with ATT:

    You hook it up to your desktop/laptop and you find yourself surprised that it works.

    A month later you notice your cell bill is about 300$ higher than normal.

    The deal with tethering is that AT&T noticed that people pay more for Apple products than for other comparable products. Therefore AT&T will be looking to put it in your butt in a very unfriendly way.

    cell phone companies, sadly, think very differently from the rest of us.

    While a guy with a computer is likely to think something along the lines of: I own a computer that can play music, and I own a computer that can stream files, does that mean I can stream music? I can't think of why not...

    A guy who owns a cell phone company is likely to think: "I own a cell phone company. How can I charge people for as many individual features as I can without losing money? With unreasonable fees for cancelling my shitty service, you say? Excellent. Bring forth the sacrificial puppy."

    like i said, all this is doing is bugging the people watching, they would be better served waiting until the rest of the confrence to show people who directly care.

    though i guess now people will definatly go looking for them, and apple gets more money

    Are we going to see new iPhone hardware? I know someone mentioned it wasn't likely due to all these app demos on the old hardware, but I think that's mroe of a ploy - if they show the hardware first, that's all people will be focusing on. They can save the new stuff until the end. There were just too many consistent rumors, from reliable sources for there to just be nothing.

    you do realize that if your cell is on and has service, then the cell phone companies and more or less track you by cell tower triangulation?

    i said its not likely they will look any different. But it's still not impossible for there to be a under to hood uprage that most of us would like - better camera, more memory, better battery/cpu/ram

    Yeah, but this is apparently allowing it to be piped through the intarwebz too. So if someone got a hold of your MobileMe account they'd know almost exactly where you are. Also, <other nefarious schemes>.

    except, and financial reports usually confirm this, the companies make money hand over fist even after upgrades like this. Its like the time warner thing from a month ago, they complain they dont have enough capital for upgrades when the books show like 30-50% increases in profits

    ug, more games

    i see the point of stuff like turn by turn apps, or the medical stuff, because those are huge selling points to people who don't have one yet. Saying "hay, look at this one game from a dev/genre you might or might not care for" feels like a waste of time

    e: gizmodo seems to think that a hardware update is getting less likely unless this thing goes another 30 minutes

    yeah, that's what I'm more worried about. But by being an AT&T customer I sort of trust them. I don't like the internet accessibility to my location or the DHS. But, I guess the last administration proved that was moot.

    Also adding "Plus Network" -- head-to-head play anytime, anywhere. The game is launching today for $5.99; 3.0 features available around when iPhone 3.0 OS is released.

    I feel like this is one of two things:

    1) A "we have nothing more to say, so let's fill up time by showing some random crap"

    or...

    2) A "we have something HUGE to say, so we're gonna fuck with people, and as we're walking off stage, go 'oh yeah, one more thing...'"

    That's the thing, though. iPhone owners ALREADY pay out the ass for a data plan. Tethering doesn't add any additional strain to the network because internet access goes through the device that already had access to it...
