  • #9 in line at the Hillsboro AT&T store. First guy got here at 4:15 AM. #
  • Line pic: http://twitpic.com/3jgx #
  • Great. Facebook.app just rebooted my iPhone. #
  • 6:15 line update: about 20 people in line now. Less than 2 hours to go! πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/3jow #
  • Half hour to go! AT&T guy coming down the line, filling out pre-sale sheets. Hope it smooths things out… #
  • They just let the first 8 people in. I’m number 9. Not long now! Still undecided on black or white. Want to see in person first. #
  • Ha! iPhone not activated yet, but I can still read and post to Twitter from my Kindle! #
  • Back in the office and online. My phone’s not activated yet. Bummer. #
  • Both Hillsboro AT&T stores only had 40 phones, and ran out of black 16GB first. A friend who wants black was ticked. (cont’d) #
  • He went to the Apple Store at Pioneer Place, where they say they have plenty of everything. He’s still in line there. AT&T supply = Fail. #
  • Gizmodo says if you leave the iPhone plugged into iTunes after it fails, it will eventually work. They’ve activated 5 or so that way. #
  • Apple Cancels All iPhone 3G Orders, Releases the iBrick 3G: http://tinyurl.com/3pkos #
  • Good thing I don’t rely on my phone for important things like, you know, talking to people. Cause it’s been dead for hours. πŸ™ #
  • Whoa! I just got an incoming SMS on my phone, and it appears to be working perfectly (calls, wifi, location, etc). iTunes still = FAIL. #
  • And I can’t sync yet, so all my data and apps are missing, but my iPhone 3G is alive! Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • The iPhone 3G feels MUCH better in the hand than the previous one (which was awesome). It’s REALLY, really nice. Almost TOO sensual. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Hey, activation started working! I just restored my data to my new phone, and it’s rebooting/syncing now. Almost there! #
  • Hmm. There’s a new “Sync Google Contacts” UI in iTunes 7.7 that I don’t think was there before (it was buried in Address Book after 10.5.3). #
  • I keep thinking “Man, I’m sleepy!” And then I remember “Oh, yeah. I got up at 4AM.” πŸ™‚ #
  • @RichSPK they’re subtly more curved. It’s hard to see in photos, but immediately obvious in your hand. #
  • Wow, the speakers/sound on the iPhone 3G are MUCH better and louder than before. There’s a tiny metal mesh grill on them, too. Nice. πŸ™‚ #
  • Showing Kevin Twitterific on the iPhone: http://twitpic.com/3ls0 #
  • @bobduffy Flash does not and probably will not ever work on any iPhone. And that’s not a bad thing! #
  • Showing @bljarv Twitterrific and Twitpic: http://twitpic.com/3m6d #
  • If Brightkite and Fire Eagle don’t start to use iPhone’s Core Location features, pronto, they’re dead. These new apps (Loopt, etc) are hot. #
  • @CecilWalker Wow, you’re right. It was a long time ago that I set up those Intel podcasts. Glad someone’s still using the site! πŸ˜‰ #
  • I owe a lot of people replies to Twitter questions, etc. I’ll get to you, I promise. Just swamped with email and other stuff. #
  • @glynor http://twitpic.com/3lb6 – @chrispirillo is entitled to his opinion. But he’s wrong. πŸ™‚ The feel of the new iPhone is MUCH bette … #
  • @verso Yay! Congrats! Which one did you get (white or black?) Don’t you just love how it feels? #
  • @unclenate I’ve tried to use Loopt, but I can’t figure out how to add any friends, which makes it kind of stupid. πŸ™‚ #
  • iPhone app idea: a speed test app that logs your location, builds a database of real world data speeds. Who’s gonna build it? πŸ™‚ #
  • @Ihnatko What is this “secret” Flickr iPhone web app you speak of? Do want. #
  • @kodachrome22 @rigeek I’m getting fewer bars now I’m on 3G, too. Battery’s getting killed, cause the radio’s working harder to get a signal. #
  • Getting a weird problem on home wifi (with only 1 or 2 bars of 3G) where it can’t fix my location, even outside where GPS should work. #
  • And the whole phone freezes for 20-30 seconds at a time, then comes back. Wonder if Core Location is timing out and blocking stuff? #
  • Need a cool new geeky nice looking wallpaper for my iPhone 3G. Give me suggestions? #
  • @JoshProStar No, I left those on all the time before. The battery hit has to be coming from the new HSDPA radio and GPSR. Not unexpected. #
  • @JoshProStar when signal is low, cell phones crank up the radio power to try to compensate. Low/no signal can drain most phones in hours. #
  • I always charge my gadgets at night, so as long as I can make it through one day, I don’t care. Today was unique, usage-wise, being new. #
  • @TaxMan45 yeah, but I bet you’ve been using it a LOT more than usual since the update. Apps burn up battery at a good clip, too. #
  • @JoshProStar I’m withholding verdict (new vs old). Differences really are subtle for non-obsessed otaku geeks like me. Both are stellar. πŸ™‚ #
  • With that, I’m crashing. Been up since 4AM! G’night, world! πŸ™‚ Zzzzz… #
