    Of course money isn't everything, thats why he hasnt sold the site yet. I use digg too, I like the podcast too. Now I reread my post, I may well have come off as a know-it-all twat, and I apologise



    Anyways, no the podcast isn't live, but if you watch all of it, they do get rather drunk. And if you are a frequent watcher of diggnation, you know that they have quite a casual style. And I doubt K. Rose was supposed to see it, it sounds as if he has a friend on the development team that sent him some pics or something. But, like the rest of the iPhone rumors, that's mostly speculation.

    i'm a bit confused,.....i thought that apple likes to control the software AND the hardware e.g. ipod why not a mvno lease space like disney and control everything and reap the revenue flow. as someone said above, what then does apple bring to the table, and why would a carrier who makes big dollars off data and music downloads allow apple to power into their market. it would seem any carrier would want to have a non compete with apple so that people don't up and leave.



    i would love a total apple mac experience....so any reasons why not go mvno....i thought a good partner would be t moble, they would get tremendous growth be gsm and hit back at verizon and cingular.

    A mvno will give apple more control but $249 + $40-$60 month for 1-2 years is not a good way to get cell users.

    Also they need a family plan that does not make each person buy a $249 phone.

    They may be a lot of people who want a apple phone but can't as they are locked in to a carrier.

    Becuase if apple partnered with anybody, they would lose control of their hardware and the security issues (in bringing out new products, dont forget apple's traditional cloud of secrecy), would be severly compromised, as the partner would be demanding that Apple must DO THIS, and NOT THAT.



    That and the fact that if Apple partnered with an american provider, it would be like another year before we ever got the phone in Australia. Therefore they wont, or for every day that it is delayed becuase of their stupid partnership, I will kill them.

    Whatever dudes. That's not groundbreaking...that's not game changing. If that's all you guys have--marketing speak to get you ahead of your competitors for the Christmas season--then this won't happen.



    Trust, if Apple does this, it's gonna be big. I wish Steve would try to move the crowd with some shit like "family plans", or "$XX a month", or "unlimited minutes", or "the best wireless network". I'd be embarrassed for him. He might as well say "can you hear me now", and fall in there with the rest of the bunch.

    I don't think so. You think the ipod would sell better under the moniker macpod?



    Apple have already acquired the iphone domain name so it'll be iphone.



    I think what Apple will do is build in ichat or the ability to use skype so that when you are in a wireless network, you can talk for free.
