1) At $99, they’re likely to sell a gajillion!
2) I love the ability to stream data. Curious if it will confuse people to have to work it through iTunes.
3) Netflix. Awesome.
4) I’m gonna be disappointed if they don’t allow other apps and services like Pandora.
5) Micro USB means they’re trying to make it hard to hack, which is annoying and hopefully not a dealbreaker. I need to get non-MPEG content on there.
With a mic and two cameras, that thing becomes an awesome communcation device, no AT&T contract required. You could do wireless off of a Mifi or whatever and have VoIP and Facetime everywhere.

Very smart updates.
I just have no idea what to think.

Nowhere near as good, unfortunately. Since they’re not doing apps like the iPhone, I can’t get Pandora or Rdio or vimeo or wolfgang’s concert vault (which you should check out) or Amazon Watch on Demand. I’m gonna buy one, but it’s not what I really want.
