    I think they are counting every single new feature tiny or not in the 3.0 upgrade as part of the "100 new things".

    My favorite was listing Cut and Paste seperate from Copy and Paste.
    That is a reach, even for Apple.
    But the real doozey was Landscape feature listed seperately for each app.

    I thought the current OS did automatic logging into wifi networks (well it logs into myhome one and any that I have logged into before e.g families) or is this something different?

    sorry if its a stupid question

    thanks for the full list been after this for a while!

    isnt #35 the same as #3?

    Great list, but did not see the ability to download TV shows, movies and audiobook content directly to the iPhone/iPod touch.

    44. Wi-Fi auto login

    I thought this as well, mine automatically logs into five different wifi networks when I'm within range, so does no.44 on that list do something different to this?

    Can we do this ( watch and download movies etc. on the iPhone) or is it just not listed ?

    EDIT: I have just had it confirmed that you can download ANYTHING on the iPhone that it on iTunes :D

    I'm wondering if this covers auto-login to AT&T wi-fi hotspots that are free for iPhones (currently I think you ned to enter a code that is texted to you). I'm hoping it means that it can automatically log into unsecured cisco WANs (e.g. university wi-fi networks that you need to login to via safari), but this may be too optimistic.
