It's a camera! It's a phone! It's an iPod! Yup, as has been widely expected Steve Jobs introduced Apple's new iPhone — a next-generation smart phone — in his
Macworld keynote address just a few minutes ago, and of course the nerds cheered. And he also introduced AppleTV, which allows users to integrate their computers and their televisions.
