Is it iPhone? Iphone? iphone? IPhone? or no idea?

I am so tired of seeing this product spelled incorrectly. How hard is it to spell the product by the way of Apple Inc. which is:

iPhone

That is the name of the device, that is how you spell it. That is how Apple markets the device, it is how Apple labeled the device and it is how Apple has called the device. It is Apple's trademark like the:

iMac
iPod
iTunes
and now iPhone

For those of you who don't get it, it doesn't matter if you start using the iPhone at the beginning of a sentence, as it is a NAME BRAND not a word. So please stop using a capital I.

Please respect Apple's decision on name branding and use the correct spelling. Stop being lazy or over doing it in most cases.

yes iTouch is funniest and most infuriating.
But it's only ever called that by people that don't have one, so it's easy to forgive.

I call mine TouchPhone, just to annoy people.

What about if iPhone is the start of a sentence?

For example

IPhone 3G users around the world are reporting problems with dropped calls....

iPhone is ALWAYS iPhone, no matter if it's at the start of a sentence or not. The "i" is ALWAYS lower case.

And get off his lawn for Christ sake!....damn kids.

After a 60k education in English...I fail to see how this matters in the least. It's a trademark, not a formalized word.

Iphone!

I just wish people would go and use their (*^&(*&% iPhones and quit posting about them 50 times a day.

So help me if I see one more thread about the "plans" I'll scream

Maybe they don't have any real reason to own one and posting on ehMac is the only contact they have with the rest of the world.

You can't flame me, I'm wearing my fire retardant underwear.
