I am satisfied with the results of the iPhone update (3GS). I think it is a useful upgrade for those who qualify for a new 2 year contract, but slightly expensive for those who don't but already own the 3G. This is my first time following an Apple device release and my first few weeks as a member here so this whole rumor extravaganza was new to me. I am curious as to the motivation/reasoning behind all of the rumors I read here. I as astounded by the sheer quantity of them. An example off the top of my head is the guy who claimed he had the phone with the front facing camera, in his possession, and took pictures trying to prove it. Some people said "NOOO, he has 2 left hands, its fake", but others were bent on believing it. So many people here were 100% convinced there would be a front facing camera. Off the top of my head, the rumors I remember are Front facing camera Matte finish Light-up logo Removal of chrome finish Thinner profile Increased speeds Autofocus camera Compass And I know there are more. While a few of them came true, many did not, which is a bummer in some cases. So I am curious to the motivation of those who make these rumors, what is the point? I can't wait until the next Apple event, so I can witness the excitement all over again.
