Somehow I don't think that 'the OS/ browser/ app that you built' will excite anyone except linux-guru's. ;-) (it would scare me away...)<br>Take a look at some of the N95 vs iPhone spoofs on youtube. Some of them are really good:
<br>Battery replacement:<br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1-8DpRNGNE&mode=related&search=">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1-8DpRNGNE&mode=related&search=</a><br>Internet: (This one is good since Jobs has convinced a lot of people that only the iPhone has the 'real'
Internet.whatever that may be.) <br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwrE5UCUf7s&NR=1">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwrE5UCUf7s&NR=1</a><br>Google Maps/ GPS:<br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GecftG1Kh7w&NR=1">

<br>* OpenMoko looks is busy tapping on his phone.<br>iPhone: What are you doing?<br>Moko: Oh, I just installed this handy app that lets me <insert cool app>.<br>iPhone: I don't think I have such a program. But I can run ajax-programs through the web. Check this app out. It finds the cheapest gas stations in your neighbourhood. Here I'll show you!
<br>* iPhone does nothing.<br>Moko: Sow, can you show it to me or not?<br>iPhone: Wait, be patient, I'm loading the app....<br>*pause again.<br>iPhone: Damnit, lost my connection!<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">

This puts me in mind of "this is the house that jack built":<br>This is the phone that you built.<br>This is the OS running on the phone that you built.<br>This is the browser running on the OS on the phone that you built...
