    Officially, according to Apple, it is iPhone 3G S. My question is: how do we pluralize it? I.E. Many iPhone 3G Ss? 3G S'? ...?

    but Apple has a litle box around the "S" to make it stand out from the 3G. Every time I see it typed "3G S" with the space between the G and the S which looks like it's staring another word, I have to go back and take another looksie to make sure what model they are talking about. Maybe I need glasses.:eek:

    I'd say many iPhones 3G S or many 3G S iPhones, probably the latter.

    In Firefox this shows up as an S with a goofy looking symbol next to it. In IE it shows up as an S with a box next to it.

    My firefox is up to date, but I never update / use IE... are you on a mac or something?

    I believe it only displays correctly on a Mac (handles fonts better than windows).

    Windows absolutely sucks when it comes to handling fonts and symbols.

    I'm also curious as to what the commands are to make the box...I just copy and paste it when I need to.
