    Stock market continues to tumble.

    All those subprime mortgage folks will be on the curb in a few months.

    But at least they will have their iPhones... :-)

    which subprime folks do you speak of?

    and what do iPhones have to do with it?

    How about this for sucking:

    This story isn't for the faint of heart. In fact, we wouldn't really recommend it for anybody, but we'll soldier on regardless. Thomas Martel hails from Colorado, and after upgrading to an iPhone, he decided his big hands were just too much of a burden to bear. "From my old Treo, to my Blackberry, to this new iPhone, I had a hard time hitting the right buttons, and I always lost those little styluses," says Martel. So what's a man to do? Why, get those digits downsized, of course. Thomas went under the knife for a new technique called "whittling." The doctors made a small cut in each thumb and shaved down the bones, then they adjusted the muscles and fingernails to fit the new thumb size. Martel's new thumbs look a tad effeminate, and there's always that problem of expense and general discomfort, but he thinks the procedure "will pay for itself in ten to fifteen years. And what it's saving me in frustration - that's priceless." Whatever you say, Thomas.
    Not really the iPhone, but the educational system that produces people like that.

    I wonder what features will be added. Maybe copy and paste. ;-)

    Thoughts on copy/paste.

    How to implement copy/paste has been discussed, and mocked up in video.

    In addition to the logistics of physically making copy/paste work, one of the challenges Apple would face, if they do implement it, is deciding on content and context.

    What can we copy/paste and where can we do it? Is it text only? Text and images? Is it only in SMS/email/notes, or in Safari too?

    What happens if a user highlights a block of text in Safari, and there's a photo inside the block? Is the photo copied/pasted with the text? What if the photo is 1mb? Is it optimized? Discarded over a certain size? What happens if you accidently copy some text with a photo in it and try to paste it into a SMS?

    Is the pasted text formatted as it was before it was copied? Bold? Italic? Underlined? (all things the keyboard doesn't support)

    The more I think about it, the more complex copy/paste gets. And the more I think about Apple, the more I think there's no way they simply overlooked copy/paste. The simplest, most obvious method to begin a copy/paste session is to tap and hold over a word...but Apple stole that functionality and gave it to the magnifying glass. This makes me wonder if we may never see copy/paste on an iPhone, just like we have never seen crossfading on an iPod, despite a huge user base begging for it for 6 years.

    iPhone - music skipping and pausing

    I've noticed a problem when I've been out on a run with my iPhone. Late in the run the music will start stopping and starting and skipping around. I suspect the problem is in the Apple headset. I think sweat is getting into the mouthpiece/pause-advance gismo and sending false signals to the iPhone. I've also noticed (during runs) that the pause-advance feature is inconsistant; sometimes it advances, sometimes not.

    I would like to upgrade the headset to the V-Moda Vibe headset as soon as those are available with the call receive/hangup function.

    Has anyone else noticed these problems.

    I've noticed the same incidents while riding my bike. The music pauses, skips and advances on occasion. I also noticed that the music skipped once while going over a p;particularly rough bump in the road when it was hooked up to the stereo in the Jeep.

    Hmm. I don't use the apple headset, but given that there are no moving parts, this guy is probably right as to the cause (could be a problem with his jack or his headset - a loose wire or something that's triggering the pause/skip button on the headset).

    They've already hooked tap-and-hold (for instance, tap and hold on an image pops up a currently-useless text bubble) but don't currently do anything with it other than the magnifier in text inputs. I expect this is the way they are going to go.

    If they allowed 3rd party apps, utilities could be made that explored this new multi-touch UI universe and the most elegant solution would likely come from it.

    My TX's over time developed dead spots, the 5-way support on Palms helped to make them usable until fixed though. When I moved to the Treo actually the hard keys were one of the big reasons for me. Everything on the iPhone is dependent on the digi so I hope this is just some isolated issues.

    If you used your iPhone EDGE 24/7, would it log every byte on the bill.

    That would be a long bill...probably cost more to mail that your monthly fee.

    Surely you mean schooling, not edcuation. More likely than either is religion. See God is not Great by Christopher Hitchens.
