The thought has occurred to me that the truly interesting aspect of the Apple's iPod, and now the iPhone in particular, is that this demonstrates quite distinctly that they have an embedded Mac OS capability. Microsoft has had an embedded version of Windows for several years, and Linux and UNIX have been likewise been used in embedded devices for a long time. While the iPhone itself is not particularly innovative, it does signal a potential evolution in embedded operating systems. This is something worth watching.
