Okay, don't tell my husband this because he'd be very mad at my daughter, who couldn't keep a secret if her life depended on it, but I'M GETTING AN IPHONE FOR MOTHER'S DAY! I'm so happy I could scream with JOY! But, I have to act my usual cantankerous self til Sunday! I'm so freakin happy that I don't even mind the fact that I have to work on Sunday!

On a different note...
My DH just emailed me this article: AT&T to cut iPhone service plan by $10

Check out AppSniper. Great program that shows you what apps have lowered in price or gone free. You can also have it monitor specific apps and warn you.

Free memory - Great for clearing out memory... helps performance...

USA Today - News on the quick

Local Eats - Local Favorites - Check out their site.

Zippo Lighter - Because its fun for concerts or Rockband parties

Skyworks Arcade Hoops - Great Pop - a - Shot like App

Skyworks Arcade Bowl - SKEEBALL!!!!

Topple - This game just cracks me up.

The Disney Map Apps now that they have GPS included with them.

Iphone 3.0 looks great... FINALLY Cut and Paste.

I haven't jailbroke my phone yet, but being able to tether has definately tempted me.

Jailbroke mine a while back, it really does open up all sorts of possibilities especially customising it's look and so forth.

Really need to rejailbreak mine to 2.21 as a good few apps are coming out now that require it

Ok, I feel like an idiot, so humor me, but what does 'jailbreak' mean?

I guess the easiest way to explain is it's like 'hacking' it - letting you do all sorts of stuff apple won't let you do like theme it (check out my screen shots in this thread) as well as stuff like video recording and mms messages. Also allows you to procur paid apps at erm, a cheaper price so to speak

I need to get a new phone (even tho I hate phones) In the past 12-14 years I have only had 2. How old is my current one? Its black/white, no picture, no custom ring tones. has the most basic of web access I really only have it for an energency and for a way to call back work if they page me, but the battery doesnt hold its charge any more and it gets really bad reception. Been trying to decide between an iphone or the g1 google phone.

Pretty much yeah
It's really easy and if there are any unlikely problems you can simply restore the firmware thru itunes with no harm

I just got an ipod touch for mother's day. DS couldn't wait to give it to me because he wanted to play with it.

Using an app called WDW Dining... Pretty good for $1. Its all the menus... Yes I know they are online, but its so much faster than surfing the web and touch users have to depend on Wifi... I don't know of Wifi in the parks.

Either way... I recommend it highly. GOod stuff.
