Everyone was waiting. An hour ago it erupted. iPhone 3.0. Obsessively hitting the "Check for Update" button in iTunes :) iPhone OS 3.0 update due at 1pm ET was my tweet at 5 to 7.
Well, "this version of the iPhone software (2.2.1) is the current version." Still waiting ;)
Then: "@congbo, @shark55 Thanks! Downloading 230.1MB." and "iPhone restarting. Let's see what happens ..."
