  1. i can say that the iPhone 3G has the best design and erconomics when it comes to 3G phones. ~

  2. TY TY, tried Wondershare DVD to iPhone Converter also WinX DVD to iPhone Ripper. Very difficult to use. And quality was low. Both audio and video. Well maybe it was just my limited technology skills, I don’t know. Sothink DVD did a great job. Seems like you designed it for people like me in mine. Not bad for the $35 bucks. Speed was pretty impressive too. Ok, sorry to rant. Love sothink ripper. laterz.
