    I sure hope she was just there to sell her spot...

    edit: Are people behind you in line really cool with you selling your spot? Seems like something that would be against line etiquette

    I could see people getting upset particularly in an Apple crowd.

    A guy sold his spot when the iPad 3 launched. He had the first spot at the flagship store in NYC. If I remember right, they paid him a couple grand. I don't think anyone bitched about it. Were probably hoping someone would do the same for them.




    Have heard reports like this from others. Depends on what kind of connection you have and Wi-Fi router, but it's more then possible. LTE is fast!

    The best thing is you no longer have to pay for Wi-Fi in hotels for the ones that charge. LTE will smoke those networks. You can always tether your laptop to it wirelessly if you want to.

    Can you tether now? I thought Apple wouldn't let you do that.

    So I'm a bit sketchy on what I'm getting now. A friend who buys a lot of phones through his corp. offered to order mine through his "guy." I get a panicked text on Friday saying only white ones are available and that the black one I thought I'd ordered was not gonna happen. I figured white is OK and will also better announce my status as a FANBOI so I said yes.

    I was gonna pick it up today but now he says there's a problem. That there was a 16GB inside the 64GB box and he's trying to resolve it before I pick it up.

    Call me crazy, and this guy is a fantastic friend and very organized, but something weird is def. going on here.

    iPhone has had tethering for years. They added it as a feature in one of the revisions a long time ago. You can even make the iPhone (or iPad 3) a Wi-Fi hotspot. It's a simple set up process. LTE hotspot FTW. :)

    The only thing to keep in mind is that it's dependent on your carrier rules. Some plans include it and some do not and you pay extra. The new "shared plans" from both Verizon and AT&T include tethering at no extra charge.

    Isn't tethering an extra charge? Isn't it kind of crappy and expensive?

    So has anyone had an indepth conversation with the improved Siri yet? You know, one like John Malkovitch has? Or maybe a recipe for hot-spacho?

    I think the biggest shortcoming of Siri is having to physically press buttons to engage in a question. If my hands are already on my phone I am just so much more likely to do whatever I need by myself. I think it would be cool if you can just address her and she knows your voice and it wakes your phone. A lot more useful, imo.

    I think the biggest shortcoming of Siri is that she does not actually exist to come through on my real needs. When they make a phone that can suck my dick, then I'll wait in line.

    My roommate and I were discussing what features phones are going to have to have to keep consumers interested in 3-4 years. This better be one of them.
