Apple released a mobile phone Friday. You might have read something about that.

We’re all over the iPhone in this special late-night edition of the Macworld Podcast, discussing all the happenings from launch day. Besides my roundtable discussion with senior news editor Jonathan Seff and executive editor Philip Michaels, we hear from senior editor Rob Griffiths and Daring Fireball’s John Gruber, who call into the show on their brand new iPhones. Aaron Freedman, of MacUser fame, also files a report from the streets of New York, where he attended the iPhone launch at Apple’s Fifth Avenue store.
