Great news. Apple is reportedly going to start to allow third party apps for the iPhone.

What bothers me about that article it the whole "real keyboard" thing. I hear it over and over again. It's all the skeptics hang on to. Atleast USE the damn thing before making a judgment. It's one of the features that really interested me to start with.

Bah.

I completely agree, I can't wait to use it and I'm sure it will be much more enjoyable than the current plastic keyboards.

Real keyboard?

Go to hell.

Not having a plastic keyboard is a huge selling point for me.

That's where you'll find Windows (Jobs D quote). :laugh2:

I feel the same about it being a selling point. He mentioned during the keynote that you'll get used to the keyboard quickly and end up typing faster. I suspect the same.

I'm just glad to hear that we can expect third party apps at some point, even if we have to wait awhile, imagine the cool apps we could see! :cool:

Engadget has some of the worst writers on the internet. Only reason anyone goes there, and not gizmodo.com whom engadet depirately tries to imitate, is because it gets all the scoops. Really, go check out gizmodo, where the humor is usually sharp and witty as opposed to the venomous cheapshots engadget passes off as sarcasm.

Does Jobs where the same clothes every single day? Has anybody ever seen him outside of a Keynote speech?

Check out the video from the 1983 Dating Game spoof. He was just a kid then. And Bill Gates really looks like the typical computer geek.

I do think it's odd that everyone is freaking out over the 'no real keyboard" thing. Watching that video and reading the quotes, I feel like it comes down to something that Jobs said: "You have to trust the keyboard..."
I feel like a virtual keyboard is something you have to get used to and not micomanage, in a way. Just type, and trust that it is typing what you'd like. Make a few adjustments here and there and it'll be fine.
Although did anyone notice the ratings on texting with the iPhone was the only area the iPhone got beaten out by other cell phones.
Do you think this is due to the keyboard, or maybe the texting function all together?
