I just got my self the Prima Guide and here are some cool features I want to shear with you - I will add more as I read alonge:

Features
Starting fonds now depend on how many members your family have (Yeah - I have wanted this for ages)
20.000+2.000 per child + 5.000 per extra adult = your starting fonds (and so on)
If you miss your school bus or car pool you can now walk to school or work (Yeah)
A bit better AI - the sims will now try to for fill their needs before complaining about them being low
Your Neighborer (on an apartment lot) can now take care of your kids for free while you are out (teens, adults and elders) - they will work as nannies if you are friends with them and ask them. Yeah for free.
If there is a fire in the building (an apartment building) all the fire alarms go off and your sims will run outside (on no the panic)
New skills to study - self help kind of books: fire prevention, relationship theory, fitness and more (very cool, though we will have to update all the bookcases again *sigh*
Lots of new interactions for the kids and toddlers (will add a list later)
Get a butler (like in Superstar back in the sims 1 days)
We can no measure our houses - no more counting squares! Yeah!

Objects
Vents and heaters (working with seasons - better get a vent in my gym)
The ability to move objects up and down on the wall (how awesome is that)
More stuff for your playgrounds!
Ceilings, ceilings and ceilings - I would buy the ep just for this feature
Build in closets
Food stands for the community lots (HOT DOGS) - no more hungry sims
Vending machines
Spiral stairs (finally)
They have updated all the dressers so we can place "small" objects on top - aka mostly flowers and things that stack in 6s on the ofb shelfs I guess
Wall mounted shelfs!

I will be happy to answer questions if you have any - you can get the prima guide as pdf today, but it costs the same as the paper version.

I'm going home this weekend so hopefully I can get it then, I don't have the sims on my laptop  Sad

I am soooo excited for being able to move paintings up and down walls, and I really like a lot of the gameplay features, it makes me want to actually play a family!

It won't be out here until the 29th either. Nevertheless, I'm quite sceptical about it. A lot of people are reporting that Securom cause many problems (e.g the game won't start at all)

I got mine yesterday! Its so cool!
I love how we can visit our neighbors apartment. To bad we can't visit the ones outside the lot, but any ways.
The game is freaking cool! It adds a totally new gameplay to it.

But I can't find the witches, and I spent the whole day going thro one lot to the other to see if I find one, but nothing! Sad

We found a witch - just stay on a community lot for a very long time - use maxmotives to keep your sim there.
Good witches show up in the day and likes rain
Bad ones show up with a clear sky in the night
