    Will the $99 iPhone be launched? The cheap 'net book? Will Jobs show up?

    And how big of a spike will the Apple stock make?

    Will I be able to get the software update that allows me to cut and paste, and receive SMS photos?

    If you have a 3G phone, yes. The rumor is that not all of the updates in the iPhone 3.0 software will be compatible with the first generation iPhones.

    My iPhone was $99 (refurbished) and I would LOVE this update.

    One new feature, that I hope to never use ...

    11:08 am If your phone really is lost or stolen, you can send it a remote wipe command that will delete all of your data (mail, contacts, etc). If you do find the phone, it will be restored from a backup.
    11:07 am Lets you send your phone a message -- a special alert sound will play, regardless if your phone is on silent or not.
    11:06 am Showing a 30 Rock clip of Liz losing her phone. Find My iPhone is available to MobileMe customers -- it's a service. You can login to MobileMe on any browser and see where your phone is on a Google Map.
    11:05 am HTML5 support as well -- Apple has been pushing the standard. Now, Languages -- even more languages (Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, Korean, Thai) -- users can easily switch between languages thanks to the software-based keyboard. All supported on both portrait and landscape keyboard layouts. Now talking about "Find My iPhone"

    I have a "find my phone" app currently, but it requires the finder/stealer to curiously click on that app, then sends the location to me in an email. If this has a way to access the gps location remotely, that might be enough to sell me on MobileMe.

    From the MacRumors.com update, it sounds like it does.

    Just downloaded the new version of Safari they unveiled today. Very impressive. Might actually manage to tear me away from Firefox.

    My phone died the other day. I plan to pick up a new one on Thursday when I get paid. Any chance these price changes will take effect by then?

    Price drops on the 3G iPhones happened yesterday.

    So the iPhone actually allows picture messaging now. That's good.

    Edit: I saw this a while ago and had to search, but...
