There are a couple of SSH clients for iPhones already . . .one would imagine they'll be updated to take advantage of the larger screen.  And it might already have a USB port sort of. The camera connection kit includes a dongle with a USB port and while nominally it might only talk to a camera . . .I saw a post that indicated the dongle looked more like a connector converter only so maybe that would allow you to plug in a thumb drive for transfer or perhaps a USB CF card reader. That's a lot of decent questions that weren't covered yesterday . . .I imagine we'll see some more details in the next week or three.

There are only three kinds of stress; your basic nuclear stress, cooking stress, and A$$hole stress. The key to their relationship is Jello.
