Is it just me, or would anyone else actually just like an iPhone which can handle MMS, maybe do that cut and paste thing, even manage a little video recording like most other smartphones? Oh, and do all of this without the battery going flat after 10 minutes? And did I mention fixing those security holes just a little bit more quickly?
I don't miss MMS, cut-and-paste and video recording. And my battery usually holds up fine for 2 or 3 days. And I don't know what security holes he's referring to. I wonder if he ever even used an iPhone. Sounds like he just wanted an excuse to bash it.

MMS is handy. Cut and paste is useful for copying links/numbers to send to people or something. And video recording would be awesome.

For video recording, wouldn't you need a new hardware rather than a software update? Or can we really get video recording on iPhones with a simple software update?

I wish someone would come out with a video recording app that you don't have to jailbreak your iPhone for.... I really don't want to have to Jailbreak it again. Can't someone come up with an App that allows you to have MMS messages... I don't really have a problem with battery life on my now 1 year old iPhone.
