iPhone Firmware 1.1.1

I updated to iPhone firmware 1.1.1 yesterday. The upgrade went without a hitch–I did a full restore, rather than hope the update played well with the 3rd-party-app hacks. It went flawlessly. The wireless iTunes store is interesting, but does not have the main things I would be listening to (podcasts and audiobooks.) Live, streaming 30-second clips of everything in the store is nice. Of course, the iPhone now uses the same (…or at least, a similar) lockdown mode as the iPod Touch, meaning the iPhone hackers do not have a way of installing third-party apps any more. The Wired Gadget Blog sums up the situation quite well with the following feature matrix:
