    HD video recording and multitasking are the two things that really interested me. Netflix on the iPhone will be pretty cool when I'm bored and need something to watch. Other than that, nothing too exciting. The gyroscope could be cool. Not really sure I want a full movement controller when the screen will be moving with it.

    Video chat is interesting, but it will be better when it supports 3G/4G.

    I didn't hear anything that was interesting enough for me to switch to the Nation's Worst Network.

    I'd never switch off a network with simultaneous voice/data for one with barbaric CDMA technology. Verizon needs to catch up with the rest of the globe.

    We must live in two different worlds. I don't know anyone who doesn't live in jeans and sneakers.... Unless it's the men in uniform at the nearby army base. And this us coming from a grandmother not a teenager :)

    Simultaneous voice and data ONLY if you can actually get a signal. ATT is the biggest piece of junk here where I live...within an hour and a half in all directions, no ATT signal.

    I'm just a young fogey. At work we went dress casual a few years back, and I still come in wearing a jacket and tie, even on Friday when jeans are allowed.

    There's a hilarious film from the 70s starring Martin Mull, Tuesday Weld, and Sally Kellerman called "Serial." In a scene where Kellerman is hiring a new maid, and tells the woman she doesn't want her to wear a maid's uniform, only regular clothes. The maid says "So, you want it to look like I'm your friend who stopped by to chat, and I just happen to be cleaning your house?" "...exactly."

    That seems to be the way the world's going - everyone wants to look like they were doing something else, and just happened to stop in and hang around the office for 8 hours.

    I didn't like a lot of what I heard about iOS4 - it's looking like we're going to see a reduction in battery life running it, and the next generation iPad will likely do no better than your typical laptop. We'll see.

    The new display, with 326 pixels per inch, sounds impressive.

    I agree epb. Where it bothers me the most, and sorry to get off topic but the conference is over so I don't see this thread going anywhere, is nice restaurants. I'm only 29 but what happened to people that had respect for a nice restaurant?

    Wife and I go out to a restaurant that is about 200 bucks for the two of us with no alcohol and there is some idiot sitting two tables away in shorts, a polo, and a hat. Most people are in at least dress shirts and pants, with a decent majority of us in suit jackets and ties, and this bozo gets let in.

    Not to mention we are going to have to see ads in almost every app probably now. And while technically the savings should be passed on to the consumer, I have a feeling greedy app makers will just pocket the money for the app at the same price AND the ad money. Hell some of them already charge money for the same app between the iPad and iPhone which is BS...and I don't even own an iPhone and I think that's pretty sad...especially with it's basically just a better rendered version with no other improvements.

    From the first time Apple started Steve always wore jeans and was casual at conferences Personally I don't see why it matters He can wear what he likes he owns the largest It company in USA and frankly his stock holders don't care either.
