Weekend Vid Picks: iPhone 3G’s Day of Drama

Anyone with a Twitter feed knows that Friday was a day of woe for iPhone devotees, as the launch of the 3G, along with major upgrades for old-school iPhones, has seen its share of bugs.

First off — were you even able to get one? Or was this almost-pornographic video of the 3G’s arrival at AT&T stores nothing but a cruel tease?

If you did get one, perhaps you did what countless others did, and filmed yourself taking it out of the box. The kid unboxing for Wirelessinfo.com proceeds initially like he’s opening the Ark of the Covenant (without the face-melting) — however, he quickly gets into demoing the iPhone’s features.

Not everyone had a great experience, and like a new media Bob Dylan, Mahalo Daily host Leah D’Emilio sings the blues for the iPhone zeitgest.

It’s been an exciting and frustrating day for a lot of people. So let’s just remember what’s important — in the end, everything in this life, including a $200 piece of metal and glass, is transitory. And can be blended.
