You're not gushing over it and you're on the list ;)
I'm not gushing over it either. Unfortunately it seems that Steve Jobs has close to the same pull as everyone else when it comes to working with service providers. With exception to the voicemail system changes I'm sure Cingular has his hands tied about software integration (and especially 3rd party apps).
What interests me is seeing the first use of the 2+ finger touchscreen as well as the UI changes on the device. As some have noted in articles and blogs it would be great to see some innovative (and hopefully non-patented) changes in how you interact with your handheld electronics.
I'm still trying to get beyond my own issues with cell phones. I still only prefer to use them for phone calls.

Why is this list going all gushy over this single product - that's all it is, a product - just because Steve J whipped one out of his trousers and once you saw it, you wanted one in your pants too? Apple has never made money with open hardware and it doesn't appear they're about to upend a profitable business model.
