    I hope they don't get rid of it on either iDevice.

    This is really just their roundabout way of getting to the white iPhone.

    If you can't color match the home button, just get rid of it.

    I like the physical button. It's a comfort.

    HAHAHA cause pushing the home button is so much slower then pinching with 5 fingers this would be the stupidest idea ever. I would much rather just have the home button and not accidentally end up going back to the home screen. also it's way easier to push a button than to pinch all five fingers together. not that it is hard it just seems way more annoying.

    i'm sure they will have a new way to dfu mode or hard reset since isn't that how a lot of problems with the iphone are fixed?

    where in the post does it say pinching with all your fingers is the new gesture? it could be something as simple as hold 2 fingers on the screen or instead of a physical button a touch sensitive button.

    I won't be too surprised if this is actually true and they do nix the home button. Steve Jobs hates buttons because he thinks they clutter the beauty of things.

    Correct, it looks like Apple is ramping up its security against jailbreaking.

    I am not sure about this, since the home button is not just "to take you home" but it also works as a hardware switch (ie, soft reset, DFU, etc) so I doubt they will get rid of it

    I don't understand why everyone is freaking out about jailbreak. One can push the phone into DFU via USB on their computer with the right software. Chill. This isn't going to be the thing that stops people from jailbreaking.
