I haven't really had time to explore the new apps yet.
Dh likes Pandora, it's like a radio station type thing. You can type in an artist that you like and they will give you similar artists to listen to. You can rate the songs and it'll take you to iTunes if you want to buy them.

I have been trying to get one since Friday. I am not a happy camper right now. Quite disgusted in Apple and how they've handled this mess. I've always been one of their biggest fans but right now....... :(

Andy I just made up that number. Any reference is purely coincidental.

cora, I used to use Pandora a few years back. I loved it. There were a lot of musicians I learned of because of Pandora and a lot of artists that I probably would not have listened to otherwise that I now really like (Dolly Parton comes to mind). I doubt I will get it for my iPhone just because I already have too much music so the last thing I need is more, but chances are I will cave eventually and get it.

Red don't give up. It will work at some point. I have heard a lot of horror stories so far about this release. I am sorry you were one of the people caught up in it. Keep trying though. Don't give up.

Thanks G. I called around to several Apple stores and they are getting shipments daily. They only have the 16g in white, which I do not want. So I'll go at the end of the week and get one. Can you believe they still had people waiting up to 4 hours for a phone today!

I can believe it. That is a bit crazy.

I could care less about the newest fad.

There's always something better out soon after.

If it's something I will use, it won't be an impulse buy or to look cool. I'll look around and get what suits my needs and budget. I don't need any extra poop.

It happens to be an incredible useful tool Saph. It certainly is not for everyone, but dismissing it just because it is popular is a bit silly IMO. This tool has done more for me than any other "phone" ever has and continues to do so. Not only that, but with the updates and new apps that keep coming out it keeps becoming more and more useful.

I know what you mean, but I'm just saying most of us can live without it.

I already have a pc and a laptop and a cell phone, I don't need another gadget to drive me insane.

There are plenty of things we can live without. We can live without cell phones, laptops, and PC's as well. They are tools that we enjoy to use though. If they drive you insane then don't get them, but those of us who use them generally like them and find tremendous value in them.
