    As long as my iPhone doesn't get bricked and doesn't hang every few minutes, I'd be happy. I think. Or maybe I'm just a sucker for anything "shiny and new! and shiny!"

    Yep, that's exactly where I am (I just updated my location for AI).



    Since I've got an iPhone dev account, I'm not really sure what I'm waiting for \

Be prepared for disappointment because you are not going to see a bunch of updates suddenly appear after the os goes live. Its going to be a long sad launch with bad PR.





    Did your Wheaties get soggy this morning or what??!!



    Sheesh!

    Not to mention the fact that iPhone developers are not allowed to submit apps compiled with the iOS4 SDK, so actually he's totally wrong. It's not our fault

    Sounds like pms has a case of the Monday grumpies! Office Space comes to mind... Not seriously knocking you, ...sorry, pmz, not pms. Just brought that movie to mind and it struck a funny bone.



    The stuff you mention is irritating. It would be nice if they would get everything lined out first before pulling the trigger...

Nothing will work as advertised today, and ill be uselessly complaining to Apple about how they have no concept or concern for what's best. They did this with the iPad when developers had a lukewarm reaction to the SDK, and now it seems 4.0 has failed to garner much attention either. The majority of devs of the 225,000 apps are content to sit tight and count de moné with their 2.2.1 compatible apps.

    You are fun to be around. Can we be best friends?



    Seriously though, yes some apps won't be ready for awhile, but some already are. I don't use many apps myself, but of the 20 or so apps I have, I know that I have updated at least 4 in the last week or so that reported to be iOS 4 compatibility updates along with other bug fixes.



    One thing to be aware of, if Apple waited to launch iOS 4 until all developers were ready, we would be waiting a year if not longer. Some developers are slackers. No one wants to wait for this to get the OS update. I think it comes down to user responsibility. If you are scared that your specific apps won't work after the update to 4.0, then don't update. Quit crying already.

    Seriously - one of the more impressive acts of vituperation outside of outright trolling. Gruber is right - the only thing worse than an anti-Apple troll is a disillusioned and bitter Apple supporter!



    KIDDING!!!!!!



    Someone needs a hug....c'mon. bring it in here. [[[[HUG]]]] OK that's enough, let's not get all Euro here...

    I'm currently downloading iTunes so that I will be able to install iOS 4.0 on my 3GS.



    The download is very slow - it peaked at about 100 kB/s. And given the bloated size of iTunes, it has already taken way too long.



    Oh well. The first download that Apple sent me to was the 32 bit version. That too took long to download, and it would not install. I'm not sure why they auto-detected the wrong OS on my machine.



    Only 5 minutes to go, so says the DL manager.

    Assume 10am PST cause that's usually when the keynotes start so they like doing stuff at 10am

    Many people on staff side come in between 8-9am, then give em an hour or 2 so 10am earliest I would say. Still don't see though where this was confirmed with Apple, where is AI getting this from?

    What are the features iOS 4 will pack in for the iPod 2nd Generation? I am not really clear on this. Can anyone advise?
