They were getting to the best favours online, wearing swim trunks, a leather jacket, and a Village People-style cap, arrived in a raft and crashed into the wedding party. He was unceremoniously dumped back into the sea by Anderson’s unamused security detail.

Many of you have heard the buzz of the awesome mobile service called TwitterFone on TechCrunch, CNET News, VoIP Now, Silicon Valley Watcher, and many more.
TwitterFone is free service that lets you update your Twitter feed using your voice from any mobile or cell phone. You call it, speak your tweet, and hang up. A short while later, your tweet will be posted on Twitter. TwitterFone was founded by Pat Phelan, Florian Seroussi, and David Marcus.
Our friends at TwitterFone were very kind to give us 10 TwitterFone invite codes. The first ten (10) people that email the special TwitterFone email address, will receive an invite. If you don’t get an invite, I will try to get more. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: I am all out of invites. If you would like invites, please talk to Pat Phelan or Florian Seroussi over Twitter. Thanks!
I have been having some problems with my iPhone 3G. Nothing big, but it still affected me. Every time I would try to open a application, and the phone would go back to the home screen. This happened on every application I downloaded from the App Store. I sent out a Twitter message, and got a reply from Aaron (@sonictonic on Twitter). He forwarded me to this MacRumors iPhone Story.

On Saturday July 12, 2008, my parents and I went to the Apple Store Burlingame to purchase the new Apple iPhone 3G. We stood in line for about 3 hours, and then another hour in the store to activate the phones.
When all said and done, it was time to formally un-box my new iPhone 3G. I did get the White 16 GB iPhone 3G, instead of the Black 16 GB. I talked to Robert Scoble the night before, and he convinced me to get the White version. My mom did get a 8 GB Black iPhone 3G. I am still teaching her how to use everything, but she is getting the hand of it. Below are videos from walking into the store, and un-boxing our new iPhones!

The date is getting nearer. July 11th, 2008 is the day we are waiting for. I have waited over 1 year for this day, and it is almost here!
I even downloaded a countdown widget for my dashboard with a timer until the iPhone Launch. I think this is one of the coolest widgets someone has ever made!
I recently asked Twitter a question:
I wanted to share some responses to the “tweet,” and then talk about myself.
If you would like to see a full list, please click here.
Personally, I have not fully decided on which version of the iPhone 3G to get, but I would really love to get the 16 GB model in black. I feel that 8 GB is not enough for all the music, video, and all the applications I want to put on my future iPhone. I wish there was a 32 GB version, that was $300.00 USD, but I guess I will have to wait.
I recently spoke with Michael Johnston, Editor-in-Chief of iPhone Alley, and interviewed him via audio chat. Our interview is below:

UPDATE: I will be getting the 16 GB Black Apple iPhone on July 11th, 2008.
