    If I am carrying that around, might as well have a real digicam.

    I'll be the first to say it.

    Is that an iPhone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

    winner.

    exactly. i mean the Point and Shoot cameras are so small that they'd be better and easier to carry along instead.

    I like the "english" on the packaging!!!

    Did you look at the "english" on the outside of this zoom lens' packaging?

    "Video Collection:
    The new design to run of rays effectively avoid the contortion of image, and makes the wide angle, the larger luminousflux, the higher visual acutenss, good for color reduction, which makes the high quality of photography."

    BTW, the misspelling on "acuteness" was how they had it! :)

    That's pretty impressive. I wonder if anyone would ever consider it.

    Maybe we should file it next to the iPod Toilet Paper dock.

    great for a kiddie birthday party

    It looks like you're supposed to grab it by the zoom lens and swing the iPhone around like an old-school noise maker.

    That has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. It is strangely fascinating though... as an entity.

    Looks like someone in Cupertino let the 2nd gen iPhone out into the wild. What's Steve smokin'?
