First real iPhone 3G software unlock

Put on your woot hats and prepare your fun cannons because the iPhone 3G is getting its official unlock on New Year’s Eve. Isn’t it a little cynical to launch a cellphone unlock on New Year’s Eve? Listen: the folks who will buy an iPhone, break the contract, and soft unlock the thing probably won’t be hanging out in the Rainbow Room come midnight. They’ll be snug in their beds, tapping warily at their MacBook trackpads, counting down the seconds for the first true soft unlock of the iPhone 3G. And they say technology isn’t destroying human interaction.
