    So here's the deal. I was one of the impatient bozos who DL'd the iPhone software on the release morning and, yup, semi-bricked my phone. WHen I finally got it restarted, I'd lost all the photos and notes. Seems like one of the backups got corrupted and had to do a restore. The sync pane in itunes says there are a few sets of backups so I'm wondering if there's some way to recover the photos that were wiped.

    Maybe eventually, Apple will make backing up/ restoring those files less arcane but for now, seems like they might reside somewhere in the user library, but where? Any clues?
