    Default Wii would Like to play

    So the new gyroscopes in the iPhone 4, How long till these are integrated into games, and how long till someone throws the ip4 thru their big screen while playing tennis?

    Questions that are bound to come up include:
    Is this sensor fast enough for a gaming controller?
    How much power does it draw?
    Is there any moving parts?

    I am not convinced of the platform being viable for FPS games until I can attach a hard device for a controller.

    However that Jenga-like game looked pretty cool. There is a similar game on the Wii that uses the same concept.

    It's Apple, so, yes, it's fast enough.
    It won't draw much power, battery life has increased significantly.
    Apple builds nothing with moving parts, so I highly doubt there are moving parts in it.

    Et voila. Apple is pretty predictable.

    I've actually noticed my battery life improved on my 3Gs with the GM candidate build released yesterday. Cool.

    How are you not on a Mac, I thought for sure you of all people would have one. As much as you love your iPhone you really need to get a mac.

    Yeah I hear you, I would advise that when you do go mac to get a macbookpro instead of the iMac. It's more coin but well worth it to have all that power in a laptop.

    Nah. It's more worth it to have all that power in a desktop, it's considerably more powerful than the high-end MBP, and I don't need more mobility. I have my iPhone for mobility and it more than satisfies my needs. I'd rather have that giant screen, quad core processor, 1TB harddrive, etc. etc. @_@

    Yeah same here, id use it for my music mostly, garageband or protools.

    But on topic, i would expect to see some games that do use the gyro. I mean, theres an app for everything right? :P
