you can get onto the store front, all you need to do is go to the mac section of the site and click buy a mac. Then on the next page click shop iphone.



I believe that was the lamest WWDC keynote in Apple History. All iPhone BS, wheres Mac related stuff? Lame, lame, lame. I thought leopard being delayed last year from iPhone was bad, my god no. Now the computers have taken backseat with the OS. WTF



there was a little news about the next version of OS X Snow Leopard, but i dont think its mentioned here. Its gonna be a more secure, faster, and in terms of memory smaller than leopard.



No 32 GB? LAME!



Did you actually expect Apple to give us all these new features AND more memory??? No, more memory will come in a few months after everyone has gone out and bought a new phone already, causing many of them to go out and buy iPhone 3G #2. I WAS hoping for a 16GB Nano, though.

'Tis Apple's money-grubbing way...



I was so excited because I have waited for a 3g iphone, refused to buy 1.0 because of the edge network. Now they announce 3g but no 32gb, seeing as how the Ipod Touch already has that why on god's green earth would the iphone not have that. seeing as how that is apparently Apple's new flagship.

Disappointed to say the least

That's Bo Diddley (as I found from another, more detailed site) not just 'classic rock'. RIP, Bo.
