I guess my frustration stems from the fact that Apple is becoming more aligned with Trendy Toys instead of Productive Tools in my opinion.
More and more stories of lemon hardware, glitchy software, bad user experiences at a vital time when Apple is expanding its market share
But Apple is expending so much energy on things MOST Mac Users don't use or will never use.

I think this was done to close the security loop so in the future "legal unlocked phones" will be scarce or non-existant and in the US it will be AT&T only for the next 4 years.

After your two years is up you have one choice in order to keep using your iPhone.
Relicense Vista for another two years (at higher fees I presume).
What I truly wonder is if you terminated your contract could you still use your iPhone as an MP3 player and wiFI (no phone). (Basically an iPod Touch) or would they remotely "wipe and lock" your phone and you are left with an iBrick?

As for "It's only a phone", well, I think that was rather the point of this keynote. It's emphatically not just a phone, it's a whole new computing platform, and they wanted to make that very clear.

Forestall told the crowd that Leopard will have support for 64-bit applications. “We’ve now got 64-bit Unix,” he explained. “In Leopard, take this a giant leap forward with 64-bit Carbon and Cocoa, all the way to your applications. You can have fully native 64-bit UI Carbon or Cocoa applications.”
At the WWDC show last June, however, Adobe & other developers learned that Apple had decided to stop their Carbon 64 efforts. This means that 64-bit Mac apps need to be written to use Cocoa (as Lightroom is) instead of Carbon. This means that we'll need to rewrite large parts of Photoshop and its plug-ins (potentially affecting over a million lines of code) to move it from Carbon to Cocoa.
