in the infamous words of the great Eddie Murphy. Ah yes , i am now an apple head. Story behind it was i wanted to try something new and was looking for something to play with. So i decided to put up my blackberry curve see what i get offered. The story went like this. I got offers from The blackberry flip to a shattered glass iphone. Then i got the one I’m currently using a iphone 2g 8gig unlocked and jailbroken yay. THEN…a day later i get offered a 16gig 2g phone, DAMN IT. To add insult to injury but a great new years to you guys. Apple 3g iphone UNLOCKED. Yea i said it.

Over at Simons blog the dev team there posted on the software they created to do this. Release date is aimed at new years eve.
In the video it shows him working on a mac i believe but hopefully it’ll come out for windows to.

Iphone has won me over not cause of the phone capability, the texting can suck. Its everything else on it.
the fact that i can teather my phone to give modem to a laptop. The fact that i don’t have to be on my pc to be on Mirc etc.
A lot of great 3rd party apps.
