    Wow, that was cool - Not!!!

    Thanks for the link, but I was not impressed at all. Actually, what's scary is the fact that the Apple Cool-aid drinkers are going to scream "we love you Apple and you finally made multitasking what multitasking should be."

    That interface is the pits and they simply have no clue! I'm so happy I have my Palm Pre running smooth as silk with F104 and Govanah perfectly.... Sorli...

    Yes, I agree ... Ill never forget the first time I used navigator and I answered a call with bluetooth.... the nav app shrunk, slid over, phone app launched and came full screen, navigator wench shut up, I talked , hung up and then nav wench started yapping directions again ... all totally hands free......

    that is another commercial that was never shot, opportunity lost.....

    Well, keep in mind that Palm has the patents on the card view and probably the gestures. There are only so many ways multitasking can be done, and Apple is probably doing it in the best way they can. I would say that they are probably kicking themselves for not thinking of the card view first, but then again, look at how well the iPhone i doing in sales compared to the Pre.

    I'll take a less "convenient" way of multitasking mixed with a blazing fast OS that can launch applications in the milliseconds, an app store that is in abundance of great quality applications versus a buggy device that requires consistent returns, laggy software and an app store that leaves much to be desired.

    If all you can loathe about is how a device multitasks ... well then, more power to you. Just remember, your average mobile user doesn't care about multitasking. I'd easily bet on the statistic of over 50% of future iPhone owners will never use the multitasking ability of the iPhone.

    Wow. That really is true multitasking. Apple really hit the nail on the head here. It is everything multitasking should be. I hope Palm finds a way to improve WebOS's multitasking so it's as innovative as Apple's...

    Ofcourse the multitasking will kill the battery, more so because users won't be able to close the apps that are running easily and so will just leave the apps that are not use open, hence killing the battery. With webOS you can easily see which apps you have open and easily throw them off the screen to close them.
    And the ios4 ill definitely get TMC at some point, it's just the user will never know about and another will be killed in it's place. Just because it wont be apparent to the user doesn't mean it's not happening.
    To be honest I like Palm's honesty in the TMC area, bugs the hell out of me on the rare occasion I get it but at least they don't cover it up in some shabby way.

    You obviously have no clue how multitasking is handled on not just the iPhone, but any other device other than WebOS. And I hate to break it to you, but when you swipe up on an app on WebOS, that doesn't always necessarily "kill it".

    But hey .. ignorance is bliss. Right?

    If I am so ignorant of the obvious truth then please educate me?
    How is multitasking on the iphone and other devices handled, as when I read into it, the impression I had was the one I displayed?
    And could you point to a few webOS apps that are not killed when swiped?

    Well first, the way Apple has designed multitasking is both great and not-so-great. It's great because it really does minimize battery usage. They've developed six (it might be seven?) services that an application can make use of to perform basic background tasks; whether it be audio, navigation, etc. This is a good thing because they have designed this in a way that has little to no impact on the phones resources or battery.

    Apple also has a strict policy on application, when an application is developed and submitted to Apple they ensure that the application adheres to all policies and that it's not detrimental to the device (aka: destroying it by unnecessary background usage).

    On the flip side, this isn't TRUE multitasking, but it serves the needs very well –*only a true diehard tech nut will complain (see Marco.org - iPhone multitasking and background updating).

    Now, with WebOS .. typically when you "swipe up" to close an application, yes it closes, but it doesn't always free its resources that it was using (hence the often-had TMC error). Not to mention if an application is setup for notifications, then it will periodically spawn in the background (even if you've never opened it.. THIS is a huge battery drainer).

    P.S. Sorry for a not a very-well structured post, in a hurry and typed this on the iPad. :P

    Ironic though that the OP is focused on an app that webOS won't get anytime soon if ever. Sprint's nav is a joke. AT&T's is too costly. Verizon's Pre's gps doesn't even work right.

    Personally, I feel as if nothing comes even remotely close to Google's Navigation. It's a pretty remarkable app, especially for it's price.
