Podcast: iPhone vigil, Powerset, Facebookmania and more...

Summary:This week on the Dan & David Show, we continue our iPhone vigil as people line up around the country to get their precious device in a few hours. Many people have analyzed the iPhone value proposition, but at this point it's more of an emotional buy, and it is really cool.

This week on the Dan & David Show, we continue our iPhone vigil as people line up around the country to get their precious device in a few hours. Many people have analyzed the iPhone value proposition, but at this point it's more of an emotional buy, and it is really cool. David points to issues such as the slow network, non-replaceable battery, virtual keyboard, lack of support for the A2DP stereo bluetooth/headset profile and no memory expansion slot.

We also talk about the ongoing Facebookmania and the rise of social applications, and Powerset, which is attempting to revolutionize search and take on Google in the process. David also shares some of his desktop virtualization adventures.
