so what's new in iPhone 3.1 again? besides the ability to do augmented reality apps. I wonder if I should stay with 3.0.1 to keep my tethering capability

I think the Zune HD competes better with the iTouch since it doesn't have a camera. Now the ZHD has to start getting some apps. I'd expect MS to announce the Zune software 4.0 soon. I mean it's gonna be released in 6 days, I'd like to know what I'm getting.

The only thing that really interested me was the pedometer in the nano. If Zune can expose the accelerometer in XNA, I think a pedometer app could be written. I actually wanted to see the social features come out in iTunes to see if there was a different (and possibly better) way to approach that concept. That's something I wish fanboys would understand is that duplicating functionality with a slight change or improvement is still advancement of a common idea. If Apple did come out with a subscription service, MS would really have to up their offering to counter it.

Still, price cuts and bigger sizes, keep the pressure on and we all win.

6 months is a long time if you ask me especially becuase of how fast technology changes.

Be happy that you didn't buy it yesterday.

When I put in my order for my MBP, before I even received it, Apple updated the Macbook Pro line to include faster processors and larger hard drives. But, I still couldn't change my order because it was already being built. Now that sucked.

That would suck. It is impossible to keep up with technology, I don't even know why I try. Luckily I bought my 24" Imac after they updated them.

I don't have that feature and I used my debit card. Although, this may be a good thing to add to my CCs.

Impossible, yes. But we all know that around February is when Apple announces new hardware, September, iPods, etc.

So if you plan around those time frames, you're somewhat safer than buying those items one month before Apple's expected announcements. In that respect, it's easier to plan to buy Apple gear.

they have a new welcome screen (kinda like in Vista) that shows up when you open for the first time and you can play video that discusses the new features. It's helpful.

you can only use home sharing between computers that have the same itunes account. So you can share (but you can still stream) media between separate accounts.

You could auto sync, manual sync, random sync

Manual sync basically allowed you to make and sync playlist. Which is easy and works well, because its how I organize anyway.

But now you can sync by artist, genre, years....metadata info more or less. Which is awesome.

Nice. Waiting to update to 3.1 (from 3.0) until the dev team gives the say-so. And I'll be installing Win 7 Ultimate and iTunes 9 this weekend. Fun times.
