Does this save them anywhere on the phone? Even cache? Which brings up another two questions. Does the safari on iphone have a cache? And where do files go if they download (how does one access them later)?

Hm, I thought that someone said that the iPhone couldn't play media from the internet. Is it only streaming media that it can't play?

And of course the iPhone needs some sort of cache for Safari, I doubt that it's RAM is large enough to fit a websites full of photos AND whatever else it needs to run. I suppose the question is, when does it empty this cache...

This is interesting, I wonder if Google will spread this to YouTube someday, since they are already reencoding videos as h.264 for the AppleTV.

Very cool! Good find. What suprised me is you can view in landscape and portrait...

Also I noticed that if you click on a YouTube link it opens in the YouTube app...which I thought was nice...
