It's one thing if that's a security concern but it's completely something else when it's something as...
I believe it was in this thread that we were talking about the Apple bias many of the blogs/reviewers have. Here's a juicy quote from an article talking about things Apple should fix before OS 4.0 http://gizmodo.com/5520808/apple-ple...hone-comes-out Quote: One of Apple's more paradoxically admirable qualities is that it doesn't give people what they ask for. When they do, well, it can look like this. And it's gross. Worse, this is just the default...

You didn't need a leak for that. Quote: Originally Posted by Tokyo...

Lightning is Windows Mobile 7 http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/21/d...ice-leaks-out/ Thunder is Android http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/21/d...creen-promise/ Both have 4.1" OLED displays and the sweet thing IMO about the Lightning is that it has both T-M and AT&T 3G frequencies. Finally something that makes sense so you can move to a different carrier and not cripple your phone. Expected in Q4 2010. [edit] Lightning is a portrait slider BTW. Never liked...

Looks like Gizmodo got a letter from Apple requesting the device be returned to them. Definitely real! http://gizmodo.com/5520479/a-letter-...et-iphone-back
Yeah, the 3GS is significantly faster than the 3G. I was surprised when I used my sister's 3GS just how much it is. A4 chip in the iPad is supposed to be slightly faster than the 1GHz snapdragon in the HD2, Nexus 1, etc. I can't remember details but I saw a report that claimed about 10% so nothing extreme and likely not that noticeable in most scenarios.
