    Thought this was a fun tidbit to break from the constant stream of iphone 3G this and iphone 3G that in here.

    I was watching my weekly dose of Top Gear and noticed Clarkson pull an iphone up to put on a song.

    :apple:

    For some reason we get the BBC with our satellite plan so I watch Top Gear all the time. Love the show.

    You Americans are going to get a home grown version soon. NBC (I think) have bought the format.

    There are rumours that Top Gear (as we know it) might only last one more season, because there are some big pay disputes going on. Apparently Clarkson gets over £1 million a year for it, whereas the other two just get £15,000 per episode.

    Probably starring Jay Leno - he's been a fan of Clarkson's and Top Gear for a long time. He's also a car aficionado and will be leaving the Tonight Show next year - not much doubt in my mind that he'll be the new Top Gear USA host

    I'd be pretty thrilled if he did that. Jay is my favorite late night host. Also a pretty funny guy.

    For a minute I thought the show used to run on TechTV...but I was thinking Fresh Gear. Oh well.

    Wikipedia says that the US version will be hosted by "Adam Carolla, Tanner Foust, and Eric Stromer".

    Jay Leno turned it down saying he doubted the show could succeed in America.

    That's not the 'real' BBC. It's BBC America. With the exception of a few good ones, the shows on BBC America are 30 year old reruns. They even had a monty python marathon the other day. :rolleyes:

    There are *always* rumours of Top gear finishing 1/2/all presenters leaving. If you listen to any of them, Top Gear would have ended years ago!

    I noticed too.

    By the way, there is a thread from 2nd of December last year with the exact same name: Jeremy Clarkson has an iPhone. He even had an unlocked iPhone on Vodafone before the UK launch.

    OK, but it did stop for a season. And four presenters did leave.

    To be honest I like the new format better.
