    Ignorance is bliss. I travel throughout California and I am very pleased with the carrier.

    Like Mitch Hedberg said, maybe it's not out of focus. maybe it's just naturally fuzzy. That would scare me more. :(

    Let's sacrifice him to our ggggooooddddssss!!!!

    Capacity Issue

    I don't know the exact numbers (don't have an Iphone), but you are missing something with regards to the capacity numbers.

    Though there is some system software taking up space, you never had 16 "Gigabytes" to begin with. Im sure Apple, just like the HDD manufacturers, advertises 16GB as 16,000,000,000 bytes [1000^3 bytes] , which is the "real" meaning of 16 Gigabytes. All computers work in binary, so a "computer gigabyte", which is technically called a "gibibyte", is actually 1024^3 bytes = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes.

    divide Apple's advertised "16GB" or 16,000,000,00 bytes by a "computer gigabyte" and you get the TRUE CAPACITY of the drive.

    16,000,000,000 bytes / 1,073,741,824 bytes = 14.9 "computer gigabytes"

    from this, subtract system software/file system overhead and you get the real capacity.

    Im curious though, what does the iphone/touch actually show as capacity?

    Another year before a 16GB iPhone? Simultaneous release with a 32GB? at $500 and $600? Are you kidding? That would be the most idiotic release strategy ever.

    HAHAHAHA.. That was a good one. You should go into comedy.

    NO

    Then I can see why you are so happy and blissful with your phone and carrier. I am on the other side of the nation, in Baltimore. I never guess it came to mind that not everyone on MacRumors lives in California, and that AT&T's service sucks over here. The only place it works is in the valleys of bumbfu*k Maryland, but every were there is civilization it's terrible. And Sprint's EVDO is blazing fast over here. Mobile broadband screams on Sprint's network. AT&T maybe nice for the few areas it works in around here, but we live on Sprint, which is why there aren't too many iPhone users 'round these parts.

    It may have something to do with it being 9 pages long. Although if people didn't post the same thing over and over, it may only be 5 pages long. ;)

    I don't think it's that the camera or the photographer... I think bigfoot is blurry... AHHH run there is a big, out-of-focus monster coming towards us!! lol. Maybe Apple has found a way to make a blurry iPhone? (sense the sarcasm, and take it in) :cool:

    EDIT:
    Aww, i was too late. I didn't read all of the posts... lol. It was just a gut reaction, i read it and immediately posted, and didn't notice that there were more posts... darn the luck!

    The available space does not match a theoretical 16GB iPhone. The person simply takes 7.24 (iPhone 8gb usable space) x 2, but for a 16 GB phone it will have more than 14.4 gb of free space

    In addition, anything major like this will NOT arrive at a store a week before the release.
