What about the new 3G iPhone?

So does the new 3G iPhone allow you to "tether" the iphone to your Mac and use it as a modem? I really hope so. That would be great, especially as it seems you are forced to by a over the air date...

I will give it a try, what do you mean "make the whole movie 'fit' not be cropped"? It looks fine in iMovie (it is in Widescreen or 16:9 mode), and in iDVD it is not cropped.
