    Well, I was in line with a few hundred of my fellow Apple fanboys and girls this morning outside the Apple Store in Glasgow, and at 08:57 I became the proud father of an shiny new iPhone 4S 64GB Black.

    Who else joined in the madness? :D

    So far very impressive. Asked it to wake me tomorrow at 7am and it set an alarm. Then realised tomorrow was Saturday so I deleted it!

    Too much to play with just now. Will report back later :)

    Whatever, Leigh! Just.what.ever.

    I am so jealous! I am getting mine soon ~ well, around Christmas. I am not even gonna ask you if you like it. Cause I just don't care. Honestly. I don't.

    You got a black one? How cool is it?

    More seriously, though. It's supposed to be 'linked in'/'compatible' with the Wolfram Maths app - so you're supposed to be able to ask it "What is the integral of sin(x) from x=0 to x=30?" (it's really clever if it asks you "Degrees, Radians or Grads?")

    Apparently he was on contract and had an iPhone 3GS. He hasn't played much with the Siri yet but has found that the car charger doesn't work with it. He had to rush off to go on a music trip otherwise I would have asked more questions. He's also semi retired. That's why. He's my apple god. He's got a MBP.

    My brother is literally heading to a Verizon store on his campus to get one right now! I can't wait to use Siri for alarms. Next month I'm getting one.. 16gb.. Currently undecided between white and black.

    Now come on guys.....there is only one question that you should ask Siri, that is "who is jealous of my iPhone 4S", if it works the answer should be either everyone or Marie.

    Joking aside, it is fully Wolfram aware. So proper maths questions do work!

    Wow that is clever. How are you finding everything else though, Leigh? Is the camera and video looking good as well.

    Congrats, Leigh!

    I've also got mine - though I didn't stand in line (I was lazy and pre-ordered). What fun it is, learning how to use it.

    One thing I can say, in comparing it to the iPad - it's tiny! :D But, it sure is fast.
