    What would you guys like to see in the first major (3.3) or maybe even minor (3.2.1)?

    BE REALISTIC (That means no Flash, no "real OS", no use accessible file system)

    My list so far:

    "Find" feature in Safari
    3 finger swipe in Safari

    Multi-tasking would be nice, but I don't see that until a huge update, like 4.0, which may mean Revision 2.0 of the iPad itself.

    The clock app.

    For something I envision next to my bed stand. I will miss that app.

    I dont think this will be a firmware upgrade though. Probably through the App store as a free app from Apple.

    Tab browsing in safari. Or maybe a three finger swipe to bring up all open windows at least would be nice. Also I wish there were more finger gestures being utilized like the glass trackpad. Hopefully the rumors are true that when multitasking becomes available it will use an expose like user interface and then all of the finger gestures could correspond with the track pad.

    Allow developers access to raw touchscreen information, so that they can produce art apps with emulated pressure sensitivity using area of capacitance.

    No ipad apps that do this yet? I didnt like any of the browser apps on the iphone, to gimmicky.

    Edit: Just checked, there's an app called "tabbed browser", claims to be free for a limited time.

    That tabb browser leaves a lot to be desired. It's my only real complaint with mobile safari and it seems o easy and obvious to include in it I can't understand for the life of me how it hasn't been done yet.

    I, too, want a clock app, or at least an alarm. Aside from that, there are some cases where it would be nice to move dialog alerts around. Also, better visual indication that you've hit a key. Finally, a find feature in Safari.

    Agreed... I want some more advanced multitouch gestures all around, for that matter. Also, Some sort of universal brightness control method would be nice. Lastly, a Dashboard.

    Edit: also would like some partial zoom options in the video app. Like full letterbox, then zoom to 16:9 if the movie is wider than that, then zoom to 3:2 (iPhone aspect ratio), then full 4:3 zoom. I would probably use the middle two more than the 'outer' two.

    I've always thought itunes songs should come with a free music video. Much better than a picture of the album cover...rather have music as background and a slideshow playing.

    Who stares at album art for more than 3 seconds?
