I have to say I know people really didn't like the original iPhone recessed headphone jack, but I actually miss it and wish they left it. I bought two adapters, one for my desk at work and one for my car. I used the Griffin Adapter (actually bought the Smartshare combo for flights) in my car since it was nice and flexible and I used the Belkin Headphone Adapter at work (the short one not that long thing) because it made it easy to prop my iPhone up. I look at the new iPhone 3G with the earbuds or anything else plugged in and it doesn't look right with the curve on top, especially from the back. You see part of the plug. At least with the recessed, it went down in there and looked good, and now it makes sense why they originally did it. Having already had the two adapters, I wouldn't have had a problem if they kept it the same. The upside is that the metal ring at the headphone jack looks really nice. Not to mention you really aren't checking out the jack when you are using your phone. It was just an observation.
