    I watched the keynote more than once. He said something to the effect that "here are some accessories we'll be shipping." And then he mentioned the wired earbuds and the bluetooth. Accessories sounds like something extra, not something that ships in the box. But I can't see them not shipping the wired headphones with the microphone.



    The bluetooth headset will almost certainly NOT be included.

    So, I can see the wired version being free, but not the wireless model.



    Where do you shop?

    $44 Jabra good

    $20 jabra works for me

    $40 Motorolagets the job done



    What exactly does a high end headset have that a cheap one lacks? nothing in my tests...if you have connectivity problems, it will be with the crappy cingular/att network long before it is from "inferior" bluetooth

    even if they included an iTunes gift card... 50 bucks to put a movie or two, couple of tv shows and some songs on your phone?

    I wonder if this is nixing my camp outside the store idea?

    This my sole reason for upgrading to Leopard and I say it is about freaking time, why did it take so long.



    BTW the iPhone will ship with earbuds.

    There is no way Mr. Jobs is going to ship an iPod without earbuds.

    The earbuds in the photo with probably be the ones shipping with the iPhone and the Bluetooth headset will be available for additional cost.

    Anyone else notice how manufactured that image is? You see one cable leading up to one earbud, and then the other one is just kindof hanging out there.



    It looks like the angle and position of the other bud on the left can reasonably obscure the other cord. What it can't obscure is the fact that the ear buds aren't plugged in.

    If you mean camping outside before the store opens in the AM, then yes.

    There are third party utilities that give Tiger virtual desktop capabilities. Have you tried them?

    Normally, I'd say that it would be one more thing to strip out of the package, but because of how iconic it is, I would agree.

    I wonder if the online Apple Store will go down "for updates" that Friday at like 5:00?

    Once again, these comments seem to go off target unless accompanied by an emoticon... It was a joke.

    Yeah Ummm OK



    I am going to know you are joking because...



    How do I know you know about multiple desktops?

    I see a comment that looks to be un-informed (No sign of joking in it) and try to add to the discussion by pointing out facts.

    "it's a little unusual to receive accessories for a handset 2 weeks before launch"



    You bet!

    Maybe because it was all part of the thread-within-a-thread about the spatial/temporal thing... Try to keep up, here. Sheesh. By the way, this is a joke.

    I made an observation and made a comment on it that was not rude or even condescending but rather was based on facts, and then I get responded to like I am a child.

    I responded to a comment towards mine proposing that basically I am an idiot for not reading their mind and ONLY READING WHAT THEY WROTE.

    Then you decide to jump in with your far superior intellect by be being condescending to me also.



    Say whatever you great intellectual minds can conjure up to berate me, I am done with you children.

    The art of forum humor... Not for everyone, I never saw a personal attack.

    *sheesh* Hopefully this is a temporal, err that is temporary, issue as this thread was quite funny.
