http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/02/18/inside_apples_ipad_multitasking.html This pretty much sums up my position and much of what I've tried to convey in these forums over the past several weeks. It's a good read. Call it informed speculation? I especially liked the part about the dashboard widgets at the end, which I've been talking about for weeks. Where are those other iPhone icons? In the dashboard. The secret, lite-multitasking dashboard on the iPad. Either 3.2 has some tricks up it's sleeve (less likely) or we will see this for sure in 4.0. I could seriously see Apple saving some of these goodies to show off at the iPhone OS 4.0 event in March. Along with improved services support for things like internet radio in the background, etc. Honestly I think that 70-80% of people would shut up (at least about multitasking) if they could check their email and listen to internet radio without leaving an app. Here comes the new notification system and APIs!
