My First Week with the Apple iPhone 3GS and 3.0 OS

Apple iPhone 3GSNow with more than a week with the Apple iPhone 3GS and the upgraded 3.0 OS behind me, here are some of my initial thoughts on both.

Two years ago, I was on line at a local Apple store waiting among a crowd of hundreds to get the very first iPhone. It was well worth the wait (even though one could had gone the next day and simply walked in the store and buy one without waiting in line (but it may not had been the 8GB model) -- There is something to be said for waiting in line with like-minded kindred spirits though). At the time, the largest capacity iPhone was only 8GB (the other being the now long discontinued 4GB model). One rule of technology and computers is that it can never be too fast or have enough memory and data storage. Being a somewhat a 'power-user' with the various iPods I had before the iPhone, all pretty much filled to capacity, I knew that the iPhone would be no exception. In fact, I knew I would have to be selective on what I will be able to put on it because it would only have 8GB.
