For their No on Proposition 8 position amongst many other things...
Apple’s announcement of the release of the 3G iPhone, with a starting price of $199 for the 8 GB model, may be the final push needed to get me to buy an iPhone (since the price-tag is pretty much the only thing that kept me from getting one thus far). Funny thing is, up until now, I’d been seriously looking at the iPod Touch, which is basically an iPhone without the phone because: 1) I’ve got a cell phone account with Sprint and the iPhone is still exclusive with AT&T Wireless, and; 2) I don’t really care that much about talking on the phone, I want the e-mail, web, and A/V capabilities of the thing and don’t care much about the phone. But now the 8 GB iPhone will be $100 less than the 8 GB iPod Touch, unless iPod prices drop as well.

On the flip side, I’m not too happy to learn that Apple’s MobileMe replacement for their .Mac service will no longer support synching with OS 10.3, which is what I’ve got on my G3 iBook. The iBook won’t run 10.5 (needs G4 or higher) so I need to “upgrade” it to 10.4, which is outdated, get a new laptop (which ain’t gonna happen unless a large chunk of money drops into my lap), or just live with not being able to sync my address book, calendar, and such. Of course, if I get a 3G iPhone, then I can sync all of that information on it and not worry about having it on the laptop... Hmmm...
OMG screw the iPhone, I want one of these!
