Update: More June 29 Details Emerge, Here's Where the Fun Begins

Ok, so now more details are emerging on Apple and AT&T's luanch plans. Pay attention, because this is a bit on the strange side. Apparently AT&T stores will be closing around 4:30. Customers will actually be kicked out of stores at that time (that's no joke). Why, you ask? Because Apple has tightly managed initial iPhone fulfillment to stores so that shipments will arrive at AT&T Wireless stores between 4:30pm and 6:00opm. After 6:00pm the stores will reopen and will stay open unusually late (as late as midnight) to cope with iPhone demand. How bout that?

Apple Cancelling Personal Shopping Appointments for 29 June?

Much to my chagrin, I received a telephone call from the manager of my local Apple Store yesterday to “reschedule” my appointment for 29 June. No reason was given… If you’ve made a Personal Shopping appointment for the 29th in hopes of securing an iPhone you should call your Apple Store to confirm it. Word is that the decision to cancel the appointments for the 29th was made on a corporate level.

Buttons or Screen? The Debate Rages On

John Markoff of NYT waxes philosophical on the argument over hardware buttons vs. bitmap screen in his latest editorial.

Apparently, in the State of the Media address yesterday, the announcement was made that: "There will be no Flash support at the moment on the iPhone."
