Apple is saying it will only take 10 to 15 minutes to set up your new iPhone. It's only available in Apple and AT&T stores and a credit card and social security card are required to complete the transaction and hook you up with 2 years of 3G goodness.

This version is supposedly going to be harder to jailbreak than the original and will come in black 8 gig and white 16 gig models. If you can't make it to the store or don't feel like dealing with the hysterics of the crowds, you'll be able to check the availability of the phone on the web.

IGN spoke with the Lead Designer at Harmonix, Dan Teasdale, who spilled a lot of details on the enhanced Rock Band sequel. One of those details was the image of the fabulous and much more realistic-looking guitar controller seen above.
It's a Fender Stratocaster design and makes non-stop rocking possible. Rock Band 2 is the rhythm based cooperative music blasting experience from Harmonix due out on Xbox 360 in September and "soon thereafter" for the PlayStation 3.
