    Possible headlining features:

    1. The ability to choose between square or rounded app icons.
    2. The ability to have slow, medium or fast icon 'wiggle' during the homescreen editing.
    3. The ability to have one, two or three beep sounds for text messages

    ...

    you get the point.

    Who else thinks that the next OS will be another disappointment?
    i.e.

    - no multi-tasking
    - no notification manager

    with a bunch of trvial and over-hyped features (much like the entire iPad product tbh)

    I think the most they will do will be video chat as one 'killer feature' and the ability to change the home screen background as the other.

    With no sources cited, I can't take this seriously.

    Then again, it's on the internet so it must be true.

    What's that thing that people say on the internet? Oh yeah *Whoosh*.

    You guys should think about reading the entire post. Unless it's *whoosh* for me...

    Really? :D

    I won't be able to resist laughing AT Apple if that's the case. They'd not just be shooting themselves in the foot anymore. That'd be like purposefully stepping on land mines.

    Guys, it's not a real "leaked" feature lost. The OP is just preemptively whining about something he knows nothing about. You know, because the post-announcement whining apparently isn't enough any more.

    Well, something leaked. I'm scared it might be brain fluid though. :rolleyes:

    These are so trivial it wouldn't surprise me if any of them were true. Of course these won't be the boasting points of OS 4.0.

    Steve Jobs: "And one last thing.. In iPhone OS 4.0, you can finally choose the wiggle speed when moving your icons!"

    If I were a moderator, a thread like this would cease to exist.

    I guess that's why I'll never be a moderator :rolleyes:

    Wait, is that an actual quote from Steve? I mean, you do have quotes around it...

    well, ur the one buying the "magic and revolutionary" iPad - thats possibly the most brainless thing someone could do.

    There are too many fanboys on this forum - would it help if I changed the title?

    The bit that says "you get the point" - clearly many of you don't.

    I dont know anything about this why? Don't make assumptions about things you have no idea about. Ive followed iPhone from the beginning, and I do know a lot about it.

    Just because you'll sit there happily gawking at anything with a white apple logo on it doesn't mean the rest of the world has to.

    Get some objectivity.

    i dno - shud it be black logo?

    if ur refering to some kind of contradiction - you dont understand the difference between being interested and impressed with the iPhone but retaining some objectivity - like realising how underwhelming some of their recent updates/products have been and... gawking at everything that apple do.

    I doubt it will be a disappointment, since I would think Apple wants to make some kind of splash after the Droid. However, my crystal ball may not be working properly.

    It's not a fanboy forum.
    It's an Apple forum. :cool:

    This is precisely what I was thinking before the iPad was announced.

    You're right, the products and software has been underwhelming, even by a reasonable person's standpoint.

    I think there should have been a direct question or statement posted, such as:

    "I've been disappointed with Apple's products and hope they get better, but I have a feeling they'll continue down this path of SUCK, anyone else feel this way?"

    Or something like that.

    Also, even though no one may mention it, it's a death trap bashing ANYTHING related to an iPhone on the iPhone forum. Like it or not, most iPhone users are blind followers/sheep, who are ready to pounce on anyone that says anything bad about their product.

    Yeah, I thought that was going to actually what Jobs said it was, something in the middle between a laptop and iPhone. It's more like a big iPod Touch.
