    I hope they add USB support back to the camera USB addon as I could no longer read any USB sticks with the new error "This USB device uses too much power"

    True, they should have just released it all together, if they have been working on the daily app for months now then they could have just synchronized into one update

    I look at it a little differently. Let them pump out 12 firmwares a year as far as I am concerned. Most phones are the same phone from the day you buy it to the day you buy a different phone to replace it. The iPhone is constantly updated to provide new content for the endusers.

    "Bug fixes" my a**. They intentionally leave "bugs" in their software so they can use it as an excuse to patch the jailbreaks that are released instead.

    iOS 5 will probably be WORSE than iOS 4.0. Seems like Apple is going the wrong direction with their updates.

    I still see no real reason to update from 4.1. Too much of a headache with compatibility issues and no new useful features (not for me, anyway. I understand iOS 4.2 was cool for some, but the only Apple device I use is my iPod). 4.3 sounds like a total waste if this is all they're really doing. The Fox app does all this for free, not to mention the other ten news apps (at least).

    I know. Me, too. I'm contemplating downgrading back to 4.0.1. What a mistake to update!

    They have to fix 4.2 first before talking about 4.3

    For about 2 years only before Apple drop support for it, 2G had it's day, 3G will be next year, 3GS in 2012 and so on...

    Apple have added about 5 major things to the iOS since it's release, App Store, Copy and Paste, Multitasking, Folders and home screen wallpaper?

    Most phones already had those features back in 2007 anyway. Things like GameCenter, iBooks, iMovie etc should not be considered a new feature as they could be downloaded from the App Store.

    iOS 4.3 will have the same boring dull grey UI with features that 90% of people won't notice like with 4.2.

    I'll stick with 4.1 jailbreak until I see something worth upgrading for.

    Seriously it's just to much work for nothing sometimes.

    I haven't tried 4.2 on the iPad but it feels buggy on my iPhone 4. I keep getting app closes or delayed notifications. To the person who said this would be the first *.3. There was a 1.3 and a 1.4 for the original iPhone.

    I don't see how people can think that Apple purposely roll out updates to hinder jailbreaks and find bugs because they're lazy. Jailbreaking isn't Apple's first priority. They don't approve of it, but they're not going to waste money and man-hour just to block it. Also, some of you guys need to be more reasonable. There's going to be bugs in software. Of course Apple's going to need feedback from their customers to find bugs because there's so many people using their products doing everything on it that their staff may miss. As long as Apple responds by pushing out updates to resolve these issues I'll be satisfied.

    Anyway, I can't wait to update my iPad, I'm just holding off until Dev-Team comes out with an untethered jailbreak.

    You're in denial if you think Apple doesn't real out updates to block jailbreaking. All updates such as 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 were only added to prevent jailbreaking. And there were several prior to these. It was released right after our jailbreak tool was ready. Open your mind and wake up man. This is how Apple works and it's always been that way.

    At least Apple supports its phones for couple of years and just some years because the hardware cannot keep up to the software update.... I'm no Apple fan boy and I understand what your saying about that all those features were late to the phone but it is because Apple implements them perfectly I mean to copy and paste in other phones you have to press X + Shift + C + CTRL for 5 seconds and then release C and to paste P + C + Shift + 2. I mean they have all of these features but very badly implemented and of course Apple also takes its time because they are doing marketing to win more money but what company doesn't?

    Totally agree with you everybody is has paranoia about Apple releasing software updates because of JB.

    For all others that are saying that Apple sucks because of the buggy software updates chill out I mean it is of the few times this has happened and personally most of times I never realize what has changed in minor upgrades so what's the problem to stay with 4.0 or 4.1?
    My iPhone works perfectly and I love iOS 4 haven't found anything that bothers me.

    I don't think apples on a vendetta, they're just closing exploits. I'm sure they don't mind closing them though. Lol

    Apple are just like a crying kid that had their lollypop stolen, they always have and always will cry about jailbreaking YOUR iDevices.

    Thats all they did till jailbreaking became legal and now they are not saying anything but still fighting against it every chance they have.

    Look at my previous comment. They also remove features that are really useful just coz they are bastards.
    I'm talking about the ability to use the camera usb dongle to connect usb sticks to the iPad. In 3.2.* you could, in 4.2.1 you no longer can.
    After you jailbreaked your iPad you can use iFile to access any files on a USB stick and copy to and from it. No longer will Apple let you do this as they are still crying over jailbreaking and anything you can do with it.

    Another update just for the news publications? Maybe if they would have been able to release 4.2 a lot sooner this might make more sense. It just seems like Apple is pumping out updates without carefully patching all the bugs.
