    So before anyone yells at me for it, yes this is childish and yes this is pointless. But it's fun and personal!

    My uncle is a bigshot at Apple in the ipod division (head of NA distribution I think) and he is obviously obsessed with the new iphone. Everytime I see him, he goes into the "Hey, you should get an iphone" and starts comparing his iphone to my phone. In the past, I didn't have much to go against him with thanks to windows mobile, but this time is different!

    Today I am attending his daughters graduation at his house and I want to be ready for him. Quite frankly, he will almost 100% have the new iphone 4. When he comes over to brag, what should I show him to make him jealous (even if he will never admit it?

    I already plan to have the starfield live wallpaper going with a bunch of widgets on the screen. Keep in mind I have a rooted incredible. Was going to show him voice search and navagation, the 8MP camera, google starmap, navagation. And of course, logon to facebook to play mafia wars which uses flash!

    What else should I do?

    he typed all that and that's the best you could respond with, seriously, give him some good ideas, I suggest showing lots of flash, why don't you get the v cast videos app and watch some live World Cup!

    Look up some porn, since thats what are phones are good for and all.

    iphone 4 is pretty small step up from the 3gs. Just make sure when you see him your out of wifi range so he cant show you video calls.

    If he's head of North American distribution for Apple, tell him to give you a damn iphone and then sell it on ebay and buy all the Incredible accessories you would ever want! :D

    Make sure your GPS is active and show him Google Earth. Anything Google on your phone will be something he can't do.

    Pull that battery out or better yet buy an extended life battery and slap it in there and tell him to shut his pie hole wang chung. On more serious note show him Google Sky Map. Kick ass astronomy app. I'm sure apple probably has something similar on their market but probably not as in depth as Google's.

    I agree, google sky map is a pretty neat app, point at a star in the sky, ask him if he knows what constelation its from, and then open up GSM, point it at the stars direction, and voila,

    Although if it was me?
    I'd slap him round the face for being a twat and go grab a beer!

    Assuming he *won't* jailbreak it since he has so much faith in apple - show him emulator and installing an app that isn't on the market

    All the goodies, google goggles, Navigation, photos on your home screens, home switcher (with launcher pro, etc)

    Also show him that you get bars.
