Would You Rather Manage Your iPhone Home Screen Icons in iTunes?

Interesting concept video for using iTunes, rather than the iPhone itself, to manage home screen icons and layout. Single icon, multi-icon selection, icon and space lock and unlock, whole screen moving, sort by name, sort by last usage, etc. are all visualized and it makes a rather compelling case.

Would you rather (or additionally) handle icon/app management via iTunes? As we move to more wireless/over-the-air syncing and operations, do we want to have more reasons to stick with the tether, or could a MobileMe-like service include it?

Also, while it looks solid on 2 screen, what if you're rocking 9 screens, will it scale?

AT&T Mobility CEO Speaks: Outages, Dropped Calls, App Store, Competition, and More!

Engdget Mobile scored an interview with Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T Mobility. Our favorite carrier CEO (for recently telling Microsoft's Steve Ballmer, Nokia's CEO, and Euro-haters that "99.5 percent of the industry is trying to copy the iPhone"), shot from the hip on a wide range of issues, including AT&T outages, reports of iPhone reception problems, the success of the App Store, and the competitive landscape now that Google and Palm are (back) in the game.

iPhone Connected to Apple Bluetooth Keyboard

Want. This. Now.

ubiqkom.org (via Engadget Mobile) has posted a video of an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard hooked up and running alongside an iPhone. We've seen homebrew keyboard connectivity before, of course, but this is such a nicely packaged, Apple-centric solution is makes us dream again about what could have been -- and still could be if Apple gets its Bluetooth profiles sorted out.
