    I can open iTunes on my iPhone, download a song and listen to it the minute it's done. I can doe this over 3G or WiFi. I don't know why you think/say you can't.

    Given the choice between Apple's PR expertise and some anonymous Internet poster, I'll go with Apple, thank you.



    1) You are always so abrasive for no reason.



    2) It's part of their marketing engine. If you attend you WWDC just to go to the keynote, but you aren't there to take courses or are working for a company in some capacity that is pretty lame. Plus, if you what you say is true then they would offer no video of the event, yet they do.



    3) It is part of their marketing engine at work. There is no need to spend money if you don't have to and this filters throughout their business as a whole.



    4) You're not going with Apple over "some anonymous Internet poster", you're going with your own opinion. Big difference. I'm the one going with Apple here, not you.

    I can't do that on the iPHone before it's done from iDisk and Dropbox, to name a few. I can also do it with videos, as well.

    I'm sure that the folks administering the conference had been told in advance what to do with a possible Gizmodo application. They didn't have to send it anywhere... but they may still have done so just for yucks.

    Perhaps he'll use gizmodos photos of the iPhone prototype when he gets to the part were he shows what it looks like?



    PS. one day to go (00:36, Sunday 6th. GMT)



    This is a developer's conference. The hardware introductions are fun for the general public, but people mainly attend WWDC to learn and make business deals. If there were no product announcements, developers would still want and need a forum to meet.

    You can bet there have been pictures of every Gizmodo employee circulated to security with orders to "tase" first, ask questions later.

    My one big wish that probably won't ever be granted - at this WWDC or in the future - is the ability to remove the iPhone's "factory" apps (without jail breaking, of course).



    This is a personal request, though, because I just don't need their crappy Weather app, Voice Memos, Stocks, or even YouTube for that matter. I'm sure there's a reason we're required to keep these, but what is it?

    Oh, I will be so pissed if Apple offers free MobileMe. Jobs better give me an iTunes store credit.

    Actually, yes. The words I put in CAPS were meant to be "shouted" at the guy who wants some super, futuristic device that takes professional quality photos, read a books to him, and jerks him off... all for $199. Oh, and with free, unlimited tethering!



    That is irritating. Did I use italics correctly?

    Given that the average phone user does not buy an iPhone, how does your statement make sense? Maybe I don't understand what you mean.



    Just with respect to people who buy smartphones, more than 4 people decide against the iPhone for every 1 who buys it.



    If you are talking the "average phone user" in general, including everyone who buys mobile phones, the iPhone's market share is so small that it is included in the "other" category.



    The average phone user does NOT buy an iPhone. The iPhone demographic strays far from the average. Recently, for example, information was reported that (not surprisingly) iPhone demographics are skewed towards older, better educated and wealthier customers.



    Nope. The "average phone user" has NOT proven that "the whole user experience" is "all it takes". The opposite, maybe.

    Again, this is a marketing decision by Apple, not a perceived technical limitation.

    .





    Here's an Idea ...



    10 +/- years ago, can't remember exactly, but after Steve returned



    Apple made available a Live Keynote Feed (in some fashion, don't know tech details)



    The Local Mac User Group got that Feed, along with a Local Theater



    Presto - instant Live Keynote with 200 other Folks, and Steve on stage (so to speak)



    Was Insanely Great



    .



    Now ...



    Is the Keynote Stream at least shown in the Retail Stores ?



    .



    Know this ...



    Apple should do it, and in as many Public Spaces as possible



    And if need or want, as mentioned above - charge admission, People will pay



    Nothing like experiencing a SteveNote in a Theater surrounded by Other Folks



    Is RDF to the max



    Insanely Great



    .

    True, but since thin clients failed a new marketing term was bound to billow in. The silver lining is that now there are technologies that make it viable.



    I'm loving Dropbox and expect that much cloud computing will work in a similar fashion; not replacing local storage but acting as a way to seamlessly connect your devices.



    Apple's iTunes "cloud" surely won't be moving your iTunes library off your PC or keeping an actual copy of your library on the cloud, but a representative copy of your library that others transparently are connected to.
