    Somewhere in Cupertino...

    Steve Jobs, swimming in a pile of money as the DuckTales theme song plays in the back: Oh man, this is the coolest job in the history of the world!

    An iPhone Dev walks in: Morning, Sir. You called?

    Jobs: Yes, what's the status with the new iPhone features?

    Dev: Well quite honestly sir, we haven't wrote a single line of code in months. The iPhone is making you more money than God and has been consistently selling out for almost 2 years with no signs of slowing down. I figure there's no need to add anything since people are buying it anyways.

    Jobs: I suppose you're right. But not a single line of code? Why am I paying you, again?

    Dev: Oh, we approve apps for the App Store now. Since we released the SDK, we can just let people write apps for the phone while we keep making money.

    Jobs: Brilliant.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Cool Updates
    SMS updates -

    1. Landscape mode
    2. Fordward sms capability
    3. Ability to change from Qwerty layout to normal predictive text format, like on Blackberry Storm

    These would be great!!

    I know most of these can be covered by 3rd party apps but you have to pay like i did for MySMS

    QUEUE people complaining that the update doesn't offer any new features.

    Firmware is released - people go out of their way to find more stupid bugs with the firmware that the average normal person wouldn't find.

    They complain.

    Apple releases another dump firmware with mainly bug fixes.

    QUEUE people complaining that the update doesn't offer any new features.


    2.2 is a solid base. How about we don't try and find flaws with every firmware? Then Apple has no reason to give us lame updates.

    And personaly, i won't be happy until they integrate an office application natively on the iPhone that can edit/save/email files. If they want to target the corporate market seriously, this should have been on 2.0.

    It is posts and replies like this that get me heated, cause after every firmware is released there are hundreds of lame *** posts from people finding rediculous flaws in new firmwares. Then they turn around and complain about lack of features. Arghhhh

    Totally agree with you on this...I feel that people should just take it as is until the actual update is released...

    Oh well just my two cents..
