    Hey, what does this mean? No GPS navigation software, except authorised by Apple?

    Applications may not be designed or marketed for real time route guidance; automatic or autonomous control of vehicles, aircraft, or other mechanical devices; dispatch or fleet management; or emergency or life-saving purposes.
    I just love living under fascists. At least the trains are on time.

    Hmmm...assumptions can be very dangerous:

    Where People Go on WMExperts.com
    • wmexperts.com (frontpage) - 56%
    • discussion.wmexperts.com - 22%
    • store.wmexperts.com - 22%

    Seems as if people just like reading our articles that details all the new devices, new software, tricks, etc. than "howling ...in the forums".

    @Malatesta,

    LOL, I wasn't assuming anything -- I had no expectation of correctness. This is the internet, man! And quite frankly, your intruding reality into my @Surur posts is like me trying to leverage a reasonable data rate from Rogers by quoting a Bell plan. (Topical metaphor humor is a challenge!)

    If could, I would lock Surur in the Octagon with Dilger and Stallman, may the least worst extremist win. Absent that, I have a little fun with the @Surur posts in some attempt to restore Karmic balance in face of his obsessive trolling.

    And I don't doubt your stats. After all, you're not a Blackberry site where homepage hits would just suggest people keep coming back for news on the next regularly scheduled outage...

    Thats why I, in general, dont respond to your mindless posts. I now know its on purpose, whereas before I just assumed you could not manage anything better.

    @Surur,

    Fascists generally both enforce their will and prevent you leaving the zone in which that will is enforced. Apple is likely ecstatic for you (sl.) to stick with WinVistaZuneMob -- move over to Android or OpenMoko should you feel any pressing need for authenticity -- if you don't like their current offering.

    Apple doesn't currently offer the iPhone as a computer platform, it offers it like something closer to a console (much as Nintendo does with their machines). That will appeal to some devs and some users, and not others. Every model has benefits and limitations, and every dev and user will weigh them against their own needs.

    Installing a very popular voice recorder on my Treo killed it dead (and installing other very popular software routinely made it crashy as hell). I'm willing to sacrifice that level of "open" hardware access for a working phone. Apple is betting others may be as well.

    Haven't you heard all the other companies are going to roll over and die. We will all be under the benevolent rule of his Jobsness, at least for the next 5 years.

    I better start protesting now.

    It's not like MS has a history of getting products to become fairly standard and used widespread even if they completely suck or anything like that...

    Definitely not when it comes to OSes...

    I concur! I just hope businesses start picking up on them more... I find the iPhone so much more user friendly than the blackberry...

    Will elitist Mac cultists still use a handset that gets "popular" with stodgy Blackberry crackberrians or -- horror of horrors -- PC users?!

    "Dangit, I touched a button and it didn't blue screen, what's wrong with this phone? How can I avoid work now?!"

    when will the iphone get native tasks that sync w/Exchange? none of this "oh I just make a calendar event crap", i need a true tasks program. also, how about being able to quickly find the contact I want to dial without flicking the screen for 20 seconds trying to get it just right? try doing that walking through an airport whe you have one hand pulling your roller board...

    Contact search is in firmware 2.0 (lots of screenshots all over the web).

    So is Exchang ActiveSync, appointments, and a host of other nifty features mentioned in the article...

    Yes, I'm aware of all of these features, I forgot about the contact search however. Exchange AS is great, but missing tasks is missing 25% of the functionality I need. Otherwise, I am excited for the iPhone 2, and will likely get one. The one thing that WM devices excel at is the Today/Home Screens. The level of customization and handiness of having your PIM information on one screen along with other information is great.

    Agreed. After switching from WinMob to PalmI spent months trying out diffrent Today replacements and never found one I liked. Since getting an iPhone I've never even thought about it... Hmmm... Might be just the way the general interface works.

    I'm sure we'll see tasks with 2.0, if not full on GTD apps and maybe even something from the MS Mac BU...

    I've long said that instead of a background image on the "slide to unlock" screen, there should at least be an option to show tasks/messages on that screen.

    That would be an awesome idea!

    Apple iPhone Feedback anyone?
