    I think, all those abusers just realized Apple changed iTunes-device handshake protocol. Pre is no more iPod

    (in fact, I think something else, but it's none of anybody business)

    I was thinking about it.

    I think i explained about 6 times - at length - why & how that came up and what the intention of my comment was.



    Is your question a situationist joke intended to get the topic spiraling back out of control?

    Well, that ends the controller debate which shouldn't have happened in the first place. If anything, people should have realized it was firmware.



    But that's water under the bridge now.

    Judging by the huge sales online, this isn't surprising.



    I plan (and everyone I know who already did this with the 3GS) on doing future iPhone sales online as well

    Well, hallelujah, if that's not a coincidence.

    1million iphones and the sata issue taken care of by Monday evening. a good day indeed.



    You're right: would have been better if it hadn't happened in the first place.



    So, going to order my MBP right away.



    (don't attack me for using the the letters <MBP> on an ipones thread again.

    (Just Joking)

    take care,

    Good luck on your new MBP . Will you get the SSD drive and the 3g bus speed sata ? 15"?



    Anyway t was a fun informative talk. And I learned alot about sata and bus speeds. I mean Apple sold one million. How much more can we say about that beyond 5 posts . So this topic was saved by you david .

    Thanks, well, as intended I'll buy the MBP with HDD, then buy an SSD when they are bigger and cheaper and I am a little richer. hopefully around early 2010.



    take care

    It was just a minor issue though. likely, the software was looking for an Apple ROM. When it found it, it went at 3 Gbs. When it didn't, it went at 1.5 Gbs. Apple fixed that. Some people were thinking that the entire chipset was using a 1.5 controller.

    lots of whining, no "thanks for getting the fix out so quickly." funny how things work around here.
