iPhone First Impressions  —  It was difficult, but I finally tore myself away from playing with my 8GB iPhone to put together a First Impressions post.  I tried touching on a few things that we might not have discussed before, or at least things that I particularly appreciate that might …

Kevin Rose: YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG  —  There's no way I could sleep tonight without ripping the s**t out of Pownce.  The only thing that really irritates me about Pownce is that it has to exist on the same internet that I use.  —  Pownce is a web service that lets you "share stuff with your friends".

Rise of the Rose Bashers?  —  A curious thing has happened with Kevin Rose's new startup Pownce: the Digg users really hate it.  For a service whose success will rely on the founder's credentials and referring traffic over from the popular news site, that's a little worrying.
