iPhone 3.0: Publish Video?
Go to Photos. Choose a photo. Tap the action button. Choose "Send to Mobile Me" and a screen slides up labeled... Publish Video? Hard to believe that's a simple typo, or even a bald-faced trick. But if it isn't, is it a sign the Video Recording -- One of the features still missing in action following this week's iPhone 3.0 Preview Event -- may be coming to the iPhone come "summer"?
We can't believe Hollywood would ever let us publish their videos, so what else does that leave us? And if Video Recording is coming, will that also be available for iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G owners, or can we speculate that Apple maybe didn't announce it yet because it will be exclusive to a next generation iPhone (with a better camera and supporting architecture?) set for release around the same time?

Although I know what you're talking about, Apple could enable video recording for existing iPhones. Just look at the existing video recording apps available for jailbroken iPhones for proof that it can be done. That said, the hardware issues you refer to are probably enough of an issue for Apple that they won't do it with the existing hardware, which sucks for me.
You're right although the first n second iPhones can use videotrecording via jailbreak, they mess up the internal memory too greatly. New hardware apples only option, this is gona suck for 3g users, as it did for me a first gen.user when the 3g came out
