This shows some interesting hidden details on the iPhone that we did not see during the MacWorld presentation. I wonder if this is all we'll see when the iPhone is released. Cannot wait for this to come out.

it's also weird that in the iPod demo, Jobs showed the time controls on the on- screen controls. but there is no place that says how far you are into the song or anything in the music player

As I mentioned in my comment, it's very cool if the iTMS will carry dedicated ringtones but can you imagine how foolish Apple will come off looking if iPhone's MP3s can't be used for iPhone's phone? For this reason alone, I'm sure it will happen.

Fun, informative video. Thanks for the link.

I don't think there's any doubt that you will be able to go through iTunes music store to get ringtones for the iPhone. I hope the directions idea comes through with Google Maps.

I think this article, which I hadn't yet seen, locks that up.
I think it also means that purchasing A/V content, not just ringtones, is going to happen (another incentive for Apple to develop a 3G iPhone).

How many features do you think Jobs left out of his keynote earlier in the year? I'd say there are going to be at least two big sized features that are unknown to all (most) of the public. I think better communication with the iPhone and iTunes/music store would be a nice feature to have.

GPS would be nice but without 3G speeds it would just be too slow.

I think it kinda sucks you can't use full length mp3 files you buy from iTunes as ringtones. You will have to buy different ones specifically from the ringtones store as far as I know...

The button that he couldn't identify in the Google Maps was the picture of a fork and a knife. Most GPS systems have this feature where you can click on it and it will show you adjacent restuarants and Cafes.

I think the google thing is going to be really cool, but only for a while. Just like me Crimson Treo 680, its cool for a while, and I feel good showing it off to someone whose never seen it before, but before long, it will be just another piece of plastic that sit on my coffee table with my dusty Ipod. Ok I lied. Im on my phone all the time. And Im addicted to my phones, I have them for about two months and then I need the next best thing. I am totally excited about the iPhone.

That was funny. Kind like the Muppets' Staler & Waldorf in reverse:

W: That was wonderful!
S: Bravo!
W: I loved it!
S: That was great!
W: Well, it was pretty good.
S: Well, it wasn't bad.
W: There were parts that weren't very good, though.
S: It could've been a lot better.
W: I didn't really like it.
S: It was pretty terrible.
W: It was bad.
S: It was awful!
S & W: Terrible! Get 'em away! Boo!

That is exactly what I thought it looked like, but if that's the case, then I hope it can be customized. Maybe someone would rather look up hotel chains, gas stations, public locations, gyms, etc. You get my point? I mean sure, the idea of having a button there for restaurants is cool, but I just think it would be a little better if Apple/Google would let the user customize what button to have there for their conveniance.

Wow!

The link is amazing and I am impressed at how dedicated some are to asking and find answers to questions they have such as ringtones and being able to use your own songs for them or not. I was also glad that the link talked about the calendar feature which was missing from the keynote. I had wondered why it wasn't discussed and what it would be like. The video gave some great insight.

These hidden details are amazing and I feel like a kid at christmas! This phone clearly has a future and much more to offer and upack as the years go by.
