    Let it out, let the community enjoy - build more apps - more love.

    This is getting beyond paranoid .... starting to remind me of Travis Bickle in 'TaxiDriver'

    according to all other sources - there is NO watermark ..... and this would be a precedent at Apple. They never watermark .... do you understand the time and money it takes to do such a thing, especially with a beta program ?!!?!?!

    Paranoia will destroy ya!

    as if it wasn't clear in the new firmware ...apple goes and holds that "town meeting" to show us all the new features. They don't care about us 'end users" they are trying to keep selling iphones ..and the way to do that at this moment is to create all the features that "enterprise" customers are looking for.

    ...thats what all these features are for ..companies.
    and the SDK ...why you think none of you indie devs got it yet ......corp america ...thats where the money is to me made.

    as soon as some company ******* about Safari not having Flash support ....bang we will all get it

    Guys you just don't understand. Their computers are broadcasting an IP address!!! Can you imagine what Apple's death squad would do if they found out???? The same thing they've done all the other times... Nothing.

    The one time they purposely closed a jailbreak method was that safari exploit and that was due to security reasons. Given how the firmware changes ever so ligtly every time its upgraded, it would be ridiculous not to think it won't break jailbreaks. The dev team has shown constant proficiency at what they do, it baffles me how they manage to keep those tin foil hats on for so long.

    Welcome to how society and capitalism in general works. Most technological process has been pushed by military (Internet, highways) or big corporations. The end user is just lucky that it also has applications for us.

    And I'm still waiting on hearing about my previous question if anyone with 2.0 can answer it (email sent from the phone broken so it looks like the text looks on the phone rather than sending the sentence as a whole)

    Ugh. Why are we so impatient to receive beta firmware? I'm sure that:
    -it's unstable
    -it's not ready for the end user yet. Come on people, if some of you struggle using the earlier, final firmware, how the hell do you expect to use an unstable beta one, lol.
    After reading some of this, my verdict is that you just shut up and wait.

    Matt
    I think what cracks me up is the total lack of understanding what exchange can do for the business market. For those that dont understand what exchange server does. In a nutshell. Imagine 15 people having a exchange account, and everyone uses the same calendar. I put something in the calendar, EVERYONE gets the same calendar information that I put in at the same time. This lets all 15 people know what each other is doing.
    Its not JUST EMAIL, but all aspects of communications, tasks, contacts, notes, all stored on a company file server. This push technology will allow no hooking up cables to sync. But to be able to do it remotely. For my office, this will be a big big move and a allow me to use my iphone for business and allow me to shelf my 8525 HTC phone.

    Well put, dude! Yes, us 'grown ups' (e.g. - real jobs, real need for ActiveSync) totally get it. Remember, there are hoards of spoiled 13yr brats in here that only care about skins

    What about how they closed the ramdisk exploit?

    Well I'll go ahead and put my foot in my mouth. Though I still believe they close them because they're just that, exploits and not because they're actively after jailbreakers. I don't think they want to be liable in case someone tries to harm the phones using those ways. The Dev Team has been doing nothing but good stuff for the phone, but from a legal standpoint, there's nothing stopping some *** from doing the same.

    Also, King, if you still have 2.0 lying around can you please (pretty please) check the mail issue I posted earlier? It's the one thing that's really bothering me right now. (If you go to this blog you can see an example of what I mean. See how the text just cuts at random points? It's somehow tied to how the iPhone mail.app sends mail and I'm wondering if they've addressed this)

    Ok, thanks for explaining. That does sound "neat." I guess it's handy for business people, but come on. Do you really think the majority of people who have iPhones are big businessmen? Maybe a few, and I guess now that I know what Exchange really is, I can accept that it's a decent feature to have. But like someone already said, they're still avoiding a lot of the stuff that other phones have out of the box. Copy/paste, instant messaging, flash, video (yeah there's showtime, but I'd prefer more features and/or an official video app).

    I kind of take offense to this. I agree there are a lot of noobs, young'uns and spoiled kids here, but I had to work for my phone and I could only afford the 4 GB version.

    I am pretty sure it's geared more towards a parent that lets a kid use their phone but doesn't want them buying music and apps or something lke that

    Cool video, annoyed at having people beat me over the head with their politics.
    I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
    This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

    • Why is it in the dark?? Hiding something
    • 3:29 - YouTube does not work - you have to connect it to iTunes first. WAIT didn't you have to connect it to iTunes to get it on there??? Yikes
    I am not wanting to turn into some big guy who gets flamed, or gets bent over. But just things I noticed there guys.
    dude i think ur right because why the hell would you have to connect to itunes to get youtube to work if you updated the firmware in itunes anyways?

    Because so far, even with it jailbroken, as far as activation goes we have not been able to officially activate it. The best we have done is gotten it to kick the phone to SpringBoard instead of the activation screen after each boot, but it is still not really 'activated'. Plus, activating YouTube is a little bit different.

    Yeah, I just turned the camera so I could adjust my phone so that you could not see my inbox. Chill out, really. Again, how do you think I got parental controls?
