Seriously, happy Memorial Day to you too!

Shame on you... I was hoping the padlock would hold...
I hope his parent's basement has a vent to let the BBQ smoke exit.

You do know they sell both black and white iPhones!!

Surely these are just placeholder images which can be replaced at the final release. If the next iPhone was going to look the same as the iPhone 1,2 why have two different image files in there?

But it is coming in 3.0 only a year late.

WWD 2008 was when we were told we didn't need background apps.

Backround apps are only on WinMo, Palm & Android.

I guess we'll get them in 4.0 with the 2010 phone.

I think Apple would make the user interface of its iPhone SDK even more user friendly so that even non-programming individuals can make a simple App, by just dragging and dropping icons in one window, and then test-running the App, by hitting the Run button. This would make more people develop Apps and in turn Apple would more a fortune out of the massive nos. of Apps.

Probably just for consistency's sake.

You are missing the point entirely, Seahawk Fan. Steve Jobs quoted Wayne Gretzky something like zillion of times: "Skate to where the puck is going, not to where it is."

If you look at the iPhone as a platform, it is the best positioned mobile OS on the planet. Microsoft is already re-writhing their OS. Palm will need to, because their "mobile optimized" OS is targeted where the puck is. The hardware capabilities will grow considerably during the next, say, 5 years, but Palm's brand-new OS has no room to grow. From now on, it will get patches at best.

In contrast, iPhone OS and it's development environment are already mature (especially compared to the offerings for the other platforms), their AppStore distribution model spawned a number of "me too" copycats, and the peripherals infrastructure is huge compared to the rest of the pack. Their 3rd party device support with iPhone OS 3.0 will move the iPhone even further ahead from the competition. The iPhone is way ahead in gaming as well. Many reviewers are going as far as comparing the iPhone with the dedicated game devices (e.g. PSP), but what about other PHONES?

As far as performance is concerned, the iPhone's performance is acceptable for tens of millions of people as it is. We could reasonably expect 1.5x - 2x performance increase with the next version. With the proper software to take advantage of this (e.g. basic video editing) it will jump ahead of the competition even more.

Ah, and stop those multi-tasking whinnying please! I am afraid it may not be enough to keep Palm afloat. As I wrote many times before, iPhone OS CAN and DOES multitasking right now. I can usually count some 30-40 processes running in the background on my phone without explicitly launching a single application. This means that Apple can introduce background apps at any time, absolutely no need to rewrite the OS. They various options, e.g. background apps for selected partners, or whatever they find appropriate.

I'm not the least concerned about that little icon, yet I do wonder if the new server farm has anything to do with the new push notifications for iPhone OS 3.0 – I also wonder how long it takes before privacy organizations realize where all this push data is going/coming from, but hey let's not derail this thread (any further).

Can you, in any remote way, back up this silly claim? And then explain why/how Apple has the #2 market share worldwide (and one that continues to grow)?

It's when you shoot your mouth off in this sweeping fashion that you destroy all credibility for yourself and your posts.

The icons... what a non story. Hardly a cause for concern. But as I missed the whole Server Farm thread and as you just brought it up, I'll chime in here. I imagine and hope it signals a big Apple push towards online services. MobileMe and iWorks.com need to be developed. To me there is so much potential in this area. I imagine the new net-tablet-whatever will depend on these services. And while I love the idea of what MM and iW.com can become in the future, I find MM unacceptably slow at the moment.

I agree with you. Comments like this make me completely ignore any further posts by him. He's either a troll, or immensely misinformed.

In his mind, he thinks Apple needs to rewrite the OS to compete with a market of die hard geeks. In reality, the OS is fine for your average consumer, which is why they have been so successful.

What Apple NEEDS to do and what he WANTS them to do are two very different things.

Oh, and judging by the way he addressed solipsism and his low post count, I think he's someone who created another account because he got added to so many ignore lists nobody would respond to him anymore. So guess who the next person on my ignore list is? lol

Not sure what everyone is talking about, there isn't any difference between the 1,2 & 2,1 icons.

Putting in a last minute icon is not going to effect beta testing, this is just Apple filling the image gap to ensure all works well with the beta, then in final release I expect they will have a new icon. Why do I believe this? Because typically Apple has created new icons having a different angle or some very obvious difference (often improving image quality) to represent new hardware, even when the hardware hasn't really changed in outward appearance.

Sorry people but I don't think this leak is worth anything. Slow news day.
