    This isn't just a "software update".. think of it more like an OS overhaul. Win 95 - 98 - 2000 - XP - Vista - W7... you have to pay for all those "software updates". Tiger - Leopard - Snow Leopard... same concept. "Minor" updates within the same overall OS are free. 10.6 > 10.6.2 >10.6.3 but when you go up to 10.7 this is considered a "major" update and warrants a fee.

    I know they did the voice control thing, but that was more hardware than software as hackers can't even get that working on the 3G. (Bluetooth and MMS were just dumb software restrictions.)
    It's anticipated that the annoucment of the new iPhone will take place at this event also. Usually Apple does this a couple months before the in store/ship date much like the last 3 iPhones and the iPad.

    I agree, i can barely get a full day on my 3Gs. rather not have it go down to a 2 hour battery life phone, instead of 4

    Can anyone say, new iPhone only supported? They will probably make something up about battery life and it will be a iPhone 4G exclusive. And this is very obvious, by the way. Apple knows and we know they would be in big trouble if the new OS did not have multitasking.

    Why don't Android/BlackBerry/gaming console/etc. users have to pay for updates then? And I didn't think they announced the 3G S at the 3.0 event last year, they only announced it like a month before its release, and no iPhone has been released before June in the past.

    I hate you. This really makes me want to pay the $99 developer fee.
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    I`m afraid that could Happend..Also they could only put that Multi tasking for only ChipA4...

    So dont be so happy till we see the thing. Thats Apple!

    And I think Apple should put some script that when you setup your iphone from scratch everytime or so.. you would be able to choose your Language and then the rest of languange should be deleted for SPACE, Performance etc...
    having all that Languange I dont even Speak is causing a lot of space, performance drop, Apps loading bit slower etc..etc..
    What do you guys think about that ???
    I am looking forward to the official announcement on Thursday to find out if there IS a hardware limitation. My 3g runs multi-tasks via backgrounder and proswitcher so i know the hardware can handle it. Not much change if any to battery life doing so either. If 4.0 is full support on a 3g i may have to upgrade, possibly before a jb is available as that the multitasking is really all i use the jb for. No need for an unlock, and the other items i have installed and running are NOT something i HAVE to have to be happy. Just my 2 cents

    I'll happily pay for a firmware update on my ipad as long as they are worth it. I recently paid to upgrade my MacBook from tiger to leopard. No big deal as it's the standard for the computing industry. Unless your a cheap arse that's used to downloading updates from warez sites. Lol

    I`m also running Backgrounder with Circuitos but sometimes it just lagggss. Only 2 App extra can be backgrounded except for PHONE app, Mail App, Ipod app, that aleady can be running backgrounded but I personally always Kill them.
    But as for that I remain with 40Mb free and only 2 Apps can be run togheter like BEEJIVE and FB...what ever come after...one of the 2 will be killed automaticly..
    thats for me on my 3G..

    Default Let's see what Apple copies from Jailbreak this time
    As we all know, Apple has always copied features that we had before on jailbreak, hope this update has multitasking at last.
