While not surprising given the lack of uptake of IPv6, I have been enjoying it through the Airport Extreme, which can assign IPv6 addresses automatically to connected computers. This greatly simplifies my ability to access my computer when I am away from home, especially since I can access multiple computers behind the router without having to mess with NAT and port forwarding.

Unfortunately, the iPhone won't go to an IPv6 address in Safari, as far as I can tell.

Not really. I wonder how much larger the IPv6 stack is compared to or in addition to IPv4.
