iPhone 3GS

Yes, I am an Apple fanboy and preordered the iPhone 3GS, which arrived today. To be silly, I recorded a quick video of Spot’s unboxing from its own point of view. Be forewarned: the sound of packaging being opened might be a little loud, depending on your audio setup.

Note on the name: all of my Mac devices are named after Star Trek animals, and all of my Windows devices are named after Star Wars animals. This is Spot, as in Data’s cat.

Does anyone know how to correct YouTube’s display to handle a vertical video orientation more cleanly? I just manually adjusted the <embed> size, but on youtube.com it is still horribly letterboxed. A good size appears to be 220×320, but that messes with the YouTube player’s control layout, even though it frames nicely.
