    Wow, how unexpected! Apple bumped the specs of one of their products, the same way that have been doing with Macs since they started making them! Boy, I sure didn't see this coming! I was expecting a nanotechnology-based device that could be implanted into my brain, it would vibrate the bones in my ears to let me hear sounds and the screen would be projected onto my retinas!

    What is your point?

    The Safari speed increase is quite impressive.

    Really? Then the upgrade from the original to the 3G must have been piss-poor! That also means the Pre is crap, according to your standards.

    Thanks for the comparison chart. Easier than reading and remembering the whole WWDC.

    Looks like a really decent version. Nothing about more RAM, though, was there?

    Maybe all the multitasking on the Sprint network has slowed it down. ;)

    Haha, only thing I kinda hoped for that didn't show up, more background apps other then just the ipod and the phone.

    It's an incremental update, just like last years. Except this year, more stuff on the phone was updated.

    Weak sauce? Really? With expectations like yours (based on your post), you must live in an awfully disappointing world. :(

    On the iPhone 3gS specs its says something about a "Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating" Whatever that is, its not on the normal 3G. So maybe thats it??

    The online 3GS demo makes app switching look seamless. If that video turns out to be accurate then the time spent switching between apps on the iPhone and the Pre are almost indistinguishable. Except that the Pre has been reported to take a while to load apps that aren't already in the background and the Pre was noticeably slower while surfing the web. The Pre still has some advantages with background apps, but the app switching and notifications still are almost a moot point. If Apple would just give devs access to the iPhones internal alert scheduling APIs then local alerts would be moot as well. All of this without worrying which processes are actually running or which apps you accidentally slid of the screen.

    The fact that you used the word 'weaksauce', misspelt it and you have 'pimp' in your username is an illustration alright, I just don't think it was the one you were shooting for. :rolleyes:
