Did anyone say anything about when we'll get Flash on the iPhone?

Apple is compelled to charge holders of iPOD Touch and not holders of iPhone for the iPhone 3.0 Software upgrade due to IRS regulations. It has to do with accounting rules, regulations, etc. Otherwise, I suspect they would not charge iPod Touch owners for the upgrade. That's my $0.02 on this issue.

I was not aware of such a regulation, and I thank you for the information.  Could you provide a link regarding this topic that may further enlighten me?  I wonder what the FCC has to do with this, and why ISP's haven't made an issue of this.  Or, have they?

It's an ipod/phone, not a laptop-- and it's an update, not a new OS. A logician you're not. The only sense of entitlement you have is your opinion (which is free of charge; and mine won't cost you a dime, either). Get off your high Apple pie in the sky horse, and walk with the masses. If you fail to voice your concerns over perceived inequities, then change will never occur. Ask any revolutionary-- like Steve Jobs, for example.

Expecting to get a major OS update for free is failed logic. Using that same logic, if I bought a new laptop last year, I should get Snow Leopard for free when it comes out. I don't hear anyone complaining about paying for those OS updates, so why should OS updates for iPod Touch be any different? I'm more than happy to pay a measly $10 for the update when it comes out, and believe me, I will.

So what if iPhone users get it for free!? Considering what their monthly phone bill is probably like, they deserve to get it for free.

It amazes me how many people I run into these days that have this sense of entitlement about everything. They want it all given to them on a silver platter. News flash: to get anywhere in life, one has to earn it. Also, as my kids learned in preschool: "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."

(Ok, I'm getting off the "soap box" now. Sorry about that.)

I guess the nearly $400 I paid for an iPod Touch (2nd gen) isn't good enough to garner a free update when the iPhone OS 3.0 software becomes available June 17.  Elitism is alive and well in Cupertino (or, is it just good ol' American capitalist greed that has overtaken "the Corp."?).
