    The ability to hide apps. Wtih 3.0, you can now install more apps than fit on pages. They disappear and you launch them with spotlight. I think that's awesome, and you can make apps disappear that way, but wouldn't it be great to flat out be able to pick what apps to hide? With push now being active, programs like aremysitesup and weather alert serve as almost pure push apps. they are there to let you know if something happens, otherwise you never use them. doesn't it make sense to hide them? 4.0.... :D

    Well yeah, but I'm saying it would be smart if Apple actually included this in the OS. With jailbreak half the time when you hide icons, they completely disappear if you restore or update, etc. You have to unhide all your apps every time you update or restore.

    That's What I do. Page 5 on my iPhone is the "Junk Page". That's where I put the Apple Apps that are duplicated by a better 3rd Party App and useless Apps, such as the contacts App (since the contacts are built into the phone App)

    No you don't. Just turn on restrictions... Then turn it off immediately. All of your hidden jailbroken apps with show up.

    What you're talking about isn't called 'Firmware'.
