I'm watching Idol right now. They've got their whole Idol on iTunes thing going and Ryan took it further with the iPhone. He pulled one out of the audience and talked about how you can download Idol Performances on the Wi-Fi iTunes Store. I also saw some MacBooks in behind the scenes shots earlier. Lots of Idol + Apple this season.

I hate it too! I liked it the first season, but got sick of it.

I have one (maybe two) questions, has David Archuleta gone yet? and if so, was he good? or at least better than last week....(poor guy, as another teen I understand how hard it was to choose a song from the 60's)

Thats good. He's definitely my favorite. I think (and am hoping) that the final 3 will be between him, david cook, and carly smithson

I went to a taping of American Idol when they first started with all the guys in the smaller stage. I was sitting right behind Simon's Fiance and Nigel's wife, at one point one of Nigel's friends comes up and busts out an iPhone and shows some pictures of his kid and I started giggling and wishing that I had my phone with me. They send you through a metal detector and make sure you don't even have your phone with you before you go on set. It was an awesome experience though, I was close enough to the judges table I could've reached out and touched them. oh, and whenever Simon occasionally looks off of camera or off to the side, hes looking at his fiance.

I went to the results show taping for the top 12 (making it the top 11) almost exactly 3/4 years ago. I wasn't as close though. But still pretty good seats.

Did anyone else hear what he said about the iPhone? "It used to be exclusively with AT&T"... I thought it was locked down to AT&T for 5 years. Is there something we should know or does he have to say that because other carriers have it in other countries? Anyone?

I would guess he said it that way because it's only exclusive to AT&T in the states but O2, T-Mobile, etc. have rights to it outside the US.

That's too bad. Ii'm stuck in a contract with Verizon but they are the best network where I live, work and travel. AT&T is just not very good in this area. Their billing is screwy too.

I've had no problems with the billing. I came from Verizon and the billing actually seems less confusing/screwy than Verizon. AT&T is fine here where I'm at, but I do still like Verizon better.

Unfortunately, it will be another 4 1/2 years till the rights on the iPhone run out. And even then, who knows if there will be a CDMA iPhone.
