ModNote: Please use this merged thread if you have complaints / criticism / etc about the OS 4.0 preview / announcement, which you do not feel are appropriate to post in the main News thread. Resist the urge to create any more new threads about this. --mkrishnan

alls im looking for is a simple refresh of the lock screen....show me more info without having to unlock the damn thing...

press the home button and have it list (like google os) how many texts,how many missed calls,how many voicemails,how many emails...etc...

is it that hard !!!!!:mad:

it may still happen. there are always unspoken features that pop up that weren't talked about in the keynote.

Agree. I was hoping for an "active" home screen.
MT and Folders are cool but I was hoping for something more. I'm open to switching now.

The ability to change your sms-tune, perhaps. But a lockscreen overhaul? I think steve would've talked about that..

Yikes. Honestly, I could do w/o the gaming center and that could have be used for a new lockscreen, notification systems, etc. I mean, thats not asking for much, nor is anyone complaining. But dang, Apple. Come on!

Yep, very disappointed but not surprised. Apple will always be ahead in polish but lag behind Android when it comes to features and customization.

What I see missing so far:

-no centralized PNS and annoying popups are still there
-no Google Nav
-no lockscreen info
-no printing

Anything else?

An apple anouncement and people are disappointed and talking about leaving the iPhone but will never actually follow through with it....NO WAY!

No one is hating. I wish someone get rid of that word all together. I can't stand when people say "haters".

You forgot:

x The inability to stack 10 iPhones in a RAID configuration.
x No PS/2 mouse support.
x The lack of a lisp compiler.
x No excuse for not including Apache 2.3.5-alpha.
x Installation of Ubuntu flyingpork-0.8-beta is still not supported.
x Copy/Paste is too late.

Exactly, something this significant probably would've probably discussed. All these new functions but still miles behind on my jailbroken phone. Gonna wait to see what new hardware features it has and whether I'd want to jailbreak again or just get a different phone altogether.

The iPhone 4.0 software could have given users really nice handjobs and Steve could have said "Handjobs? Yes. Handjobs! Isn't that neat?" and threads with the title "Well, I'm disappointed" would still have popped up.

And no google nav is apple's fault because? Oh i know because i suppose apple can force the devs at google to make a nav app :rolleyes: Some people blame apple for everything.

And the lockscreen info what practical purpose would that have? Last time i checked slide to unlock works fine

There were good things that came from this announcement of the new OS. If you dislike this thread so much to the point of posting illogical rants, then why post? Those I mentioned that are missing were features that many wanted.

I didn't realize that asking for printing support was too much since they are offering iWork on the iPad and was the equivalent of asking for Ubuntu.
