Despite being a mac fan{mumble} as previously expressed, I gotta say that I'm most unimpressed with the lack of the following in my iPhone 3G:

1) No copy and paste (still!!!).

2) No direct way of getting the photos I take with the iPhone camera to a Mac. Amazingly, I could get them easily transferred to my wife's windoze box via Picasa!

3) What's with this supposed vetting of apps by Apple? What a joke.

But other than that, like the Mac OS itself, the workflow is just great. Mobile phones have been such crap before now.

My wife - for her ACT consulting work - needs Windows Mobile, so she just got an HTC Touch Mobile , and I was surprised to see how many features were borrowed from the iPhone. But again, somehow the other folks miss the mark . . .

Regards,
David

Amen.

My one and only significant complaint about the iPhone. I have no idea why Apple hasn't figured out that people would like to be able to cut and paste text. I'm reminded of how irritating this is every time I'd like to track a FedEx/UPS/DHL package on my iPhone.

Ohh, too bad.

He was referring to the iPhone as America's greatest national threat as he pretended to misinterpret all the recent articles about the secret application kill switch they embedded in the phone. At some point he says.

"Why didn't I buy a Zune? It can't kill you.......or do anything at all!"
