iPhone 3.0 Bugs: .Me Spontaneously Changing to .Mac?

Your iPhone MobileMe account randomly and spontaneously changing from [username] to [username] You're not alone.

iPhone 3G S -- Apple Delivers Mobile Video to the Masses

Lots of smartphones have lots of features, and as Steve Jobs has said in the past -- many people don't even know about them, much less use them.

With the original iPhone, Apple popularized mobile web browsing, and the iPhone 3G too that to previously unseen levels (and AT&T has the data network woes to prove it).
