"Piracy already costs satellite television providers hundreds of millions of dollars per year"
I don't see what attacking ships on the high seas has to do with all this, nor do I agree with the assumption that copyright infringers would otherwise purchase content legitimately, and that you can therefore call it a "cost". Please stop propagating these two most egregious examples of industry propaganda.

Fine for me. PC sync: don't care, I have multiple PCs in multiple locations, so the "constantly sync to the cloud" model makes a lot more sense (also, people who provide PC sync tend to mean Outlook sync and I don't run Windows). Exchange support: my employer has Exchange, but I only use it for email and they have IMAP enabled. Headphone jack: this is a WTF, I agree, but not a deal breaker for me. I'll just buy a small, cheap adaptor. Stereo Bluetooth: they said at the NY launch, this will come to this device in an update.
LG and Samsung
...have previously said they're releasing Android phones in 2009. I wonder if their (and Sony's) hardware will be any better than HTC's? I think HTC had the better track-record of the three, up until the G1, but I don't like the look of that curvy slider. Looks fragile.
