    I can vouch for this guy, though I have been unable to find those images, I have found traces of those files plus a translator a while ago

    Streaming internet radio through WiFi, a dictionary, a unit converter, etc. are rumoured to come with one of the future updates from Apple.
    Apparently Apple wants to make up for the lack of an open API and maybe this is also part of another marketing stunt by keeping the iPhone hype up and running by introducing new features/applications with each and every FW update. This would also make people think twice before unlocking the iPhone since every FW update probably requires adaptation for the software unlock solution.

    Apple does the right thing, unfortunately they didn't think this through because giving people applications but at the same time fighting the free development of third party applications is not something they can keep up for long.

    Honestly, I don't understand why Apple seems to care that much about "hacking" solutions, maybe the pressure from their carrier partners is really putting a lot of pressure upon them. Look at the problems people encounter with software unlocks and hacks, look how some of them are very complicated to use for the avarage user. Apple really doesn't have to fear us but if they want to do us and others something good, they should go after COMMERCIAL suppliers of unlock solutions because this is actually where the REAL problem for Apple is coming from since these people make an unlock available much easier to a broader audience.

    Apple shoots with canons against flies but is actually missing the "donkeys" they need to target to protect their marketing strategy. WE are not the enemy, on the contrary. Apple should start to realize this before they p.ss off a lot of loyal customers and addicts.

    Sadly old chap, they already have - especially in the rest of the world. The unlock was the way for advance early adopters who didn't live in the USA to get their iPhones working - and we were effectively an advance marketing solution for Apple, since we were all Apple enthusiasts and fanboys...

    If you've unlocked in the USA then you can at least have a go at returning the unit and getting one with an AT&T contract. If you are not, and unfortunately upgrade to 1.1.1, then you have effectively had your property destroyed, a very sour taste left in the mouth, and won't have anything to show off to friends / clients / suppliers etc.

    It's an own goal beyond belief. Unless Jobs really didn't want to do this but was contractually bound by AT&T (which seems unlikely), then it heralds the change of the 'customer-friendly' Apple of old to yet another USA 'fuck the customer' big corporation. And I won't be actively promoting their products any more. I am *not* the only one saying this, and I'm not a petulant teenager either...
