This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I am sitting in an NTB tire shop with my Powerbook (they have an open WiFi network.) I could see where an iPhone would be a sweet thing to have right now, because I need to get up and powder my nose, but to do so I'd have to unplug and carry this thing with me...

Somwhat related story. Two weeks back, I was sitting in the waiting area of a motorcycle/ATV store waiting for the oil to get changed on my bike with my MacBook Pro propped open in front of me.
I can't tell you how many people came by to oooh and ahhh over it. The staff might have gotten annoyed that the customers were paying more attention to my Mac than the bikes on display, except that they were the doing the same.
The reaction to an iPhone might have been even more intense -- assuming that they noticed it in the first place.
