I don't feel Apple failed. It's much easier to find legitimate Apps than otherwise. And many of the Apps are free so no complaints there. I buy all my music on CD and import to iTunes for my personal use because I like to maintain control of music I pay for.

@carkitter....

i disagree with the comment about being easier to find free apps than warez. i can find both very easily.

All am hoping for is a little.... 'Just one more thing...' and a new, smaller iPhone would make me happy today. Its a long shot but u never know!

I wouldn't want a smaller iPhone. The screen size is one of its best points for me and its one of the few phones I can use without my glasses (or without squinting!)

I could actually live with a slightly larger iPhone if it remained as slim as it is now (or slimmer!)

Apple previews iPhone OS 3.0, adds copy and paste, Spotlight search, plenty more

As promised, Apple just debuted its upcoming iPhone OS 3.0. Much of the news seemed developer-centric, but there are certainly plenty of consumer implications down the road, along with long-awaited functions like copy and paste, A2DP, MMS and universal Spotlight search. Improvements include:

App and developer functionality
Peer-to-peer connectivity over Bluetooth for gaming and other info-swapping.
Paid apps will have the potential to be subscription fee-based, and can include optional paid content that can be bought from right inside the app.
Developers can now build apps that call out to Google Maps, and can also finally bring Apple-blessed turn-by-turn to the phone.
Devs can also connect with hardware accessories over in their apps now, such as a blood pressure monitor -- or perhaps a keyboard? Connectivity works through the dock connector or over Bluetooth.
Long-promised push functionality will at last be included, but apps won't run in the background.
Developers can add streaming video and audio to their apps, along with in-game voice use.

General functionality
Cut, copy and paste. At last! You can shake the phone to undo and redo the action, and it works with both text and photos, allowing Mail to send multiple photos at a time.
MMS, along with forward and delete for multiple messages.
A2DP stereo Bluetooth.
Unlocked Bluetooth functionality on 2G iPod touch.
Spotlight has been added to a new home screen page to the left of existing pages, allowing for universal search on the phone.
Tethering is built into 3.0, and Apple will work with carriers on that -- who will have the last say on its implementation, most likely.
App Store will be available in 77 countries.
Parental controls for TV shows, movies and App Store apps.
Auto-login for WiFi hotspots.

Apple apps
A new app called Voice Memos which lets you record notes and reminders.
A revised Stocks app, with news stories and a landscape view.
Landscape view available for Mail, Text and Notes.
CalDAV support has been added to Calendar, along with subscriptions support in the .ics format.
Apple's major apps have all been expanded with search functionality.
Note syncing to Mac and PC.
YouTube account support.
Form auto-fill.
Phishing protection.
Shake the shuffle iPod playback.

A developer beta of OS 3.0 is available today, and the 3.0 update will be coming to consumers this summer as a free update to all iPhone 3G customers. It'll also work for 1st gen iPhone owners, though they won't receive A2DP or MMS due to hardware limitations. iPod touch owners will be able to update for $9.95, just like last time.

a-maz-ing how much they're packing into this next version

let the dissenters dismiss the iPhone now

prime here for me is the :-
auto-login at hotspots, though I already have that for O2 affiliated sites
cut and paste... which I do miss when replying to posts here via my iphone
the A2DP... so I can dump the accessory I use that plugs into the bottom of the iphone
and tomtom... as presumably they'll be able to release their software now (not really getting on with xGPS)
note synching... as I have alot of useful notes in outlook

also, the youtube account support was something I missed recently and mentioned in this discussion

its been known for almost a year that tomtom have a working version of their software on the iphone, but previous Apple rules prevented it being released

now that Apple have relaxed this rules, I would expect them to be one of the first in line to release their software

Looks like there's lots of good things to come in 3.0. Makes me wonder what the next handset will look like
