I always seem to go too far with mistakes, so I never use it either. It's just kind of annoying.

C&P has to be next on the list, right? Idea

It's going to be nice having podcasts. I'm such a junkie with the TWiT and NPR stuff.

Are they fixing the Wifi glitch on the 2g Touch? (Having to log back out and back in to connect).

I could be wrong, but I think that I read something about it fixing a Wifi glitch. I know my 1g iPod touch seems to be working just fine.

Nice little surpise but I'm very dissapointed that push notifications have been delayed by two months now without even so much as a mention from Cupertino.

Oh well, at least we have podcasts now. I also like that you can turn auto-correct off and go home with home, but these are minor things that should have been there all along. The rest seems pretty boring to me. I'm also dissapointed about push like trustory, but what are you going to do?

My 2G Touch seems faster and Wifi is better.

I Wish there was a way to organize Apps on the Mac, and better Video organizing.
The App organization on the Touch screen could be much better IMO too.

Yeah, I wish there was a better way to organize applications on the iPhone. Perhaps with folders or something. Then you could put all your games in one folder and this and that in another. Flicking trough 7 pages is a little stupid. Plus, it would be cool if you could download the applications to a specific folder. It's just starting to get out of control with all the application I have.

The GUI invention has it's advantages, and disadvantages on a small screen. It's pretty looks cool and sells it in ads.
I guess I need to load on just 5-10 games/apps instead of the 75+ freebies I got!
gotta go Flick Fishin'!

I'm a freebie junkie too. Laughing

That being said, I tend to rotate mine out through iTunes. I think it would be cool having something like Stacks for applications in the Dock though. Then you could have a few more of your favorites down there.

Jailbreaking and using the categories iPhone app developed by Big Boss will let you create folders. It is sweet for organization.

Speaking of that, How do I go about updating a jailbroken iPhone? Do I need to go through the whole original process all over again, or can I just update like normal?

Thanks
