About 10 days ago, my son put his iPhone between the seats in a car. Later, he or someone else used the power seat adjustment to move the seat forward so another person could get into the car. His iPhone now has 2 nasty dents in the back and won't function. A few days later, I asked him how he was doing without his iPhone. He answered, "Ghetto...I don't have my GPS feature, can't surf the web when not at my computer, etc., etc..." In other words, he loved his iPhone 2G.
Needless to say, today he is in line for an iPhone 3G, despite tough deadlines on a job at work. Since we have a family plan, he is picking up one for me also. I feel like its Christmas...thank you Steve Jobs and everyone at Apple! (Yeah, I may not get it activated today, but I can wait another day or two.)
