    Si i was in the process of making a skin for my desktop countdown to the new iphone and i decided to download the pic of the iphone from http://www.apple.com/iphone/ I right clicked it and it was named 'hero20080609' as the default file name... just thought it was funny

    In the design business, that kind of product photograph is often called a hero shot or a beauty shot.

    Also - In TV sports - the close up on a quarterback who won a winning throw or a pitcher who struck a guy out is also called a "hero" shot.

    Of note... a guy that is the loser is called the "goat". You'll often hear a director say "camera X, give me the goat".

    yeah, Apple has had the word "hero" in filenames of pictures on their website for some time.

    Sorry buddy no GH for iphone but...... if youve ever played Tap Tap Revolution for a jailbroken Iphone or Ipod Touch then you can enjoy it soon from the App store (some company bought the rights to the game from the original developers) Its close to GH and you can upload your own songs, woot

    I am sure a Guitar Hero will be made for the iPhone. I am pretty sure a lot of Game Developers will make games for the iPhone because of how easy it is to get them out there and the revenue from it. I am waiting for Doom to come to the iPhone. And I can't wait to play Super Monkey Ball.
