Were you really expecting them to release a firmware that allows for video recording and copy paste today? We've been waiting on those 2 features since June of 2007.

I agree that it would have been awesome but I just don't see us getting those things (legitimately) from Apple anytime soon unfortunately.

The firmware releases are varied at when they are released so there really is no telling when we might get one.

I agree, those things are probably never coming. It's no big deal to me really.

I am beginning to think that although there will be no more MacWorlds and other conferences, that Steve Jobs will hold a press conference late Spring - mid Summer announcing anything new for the iPhone and Touch.
I think that the key factors will be his health and development for the OS.

And of course, let's not forget the competition. If Apple is firmly committed to the iPhone platform (sure it's a short term money maker), they will try to anticipate what other manufacturers are doing, and market products that maintain market share. We saw Motorola get complacent with the Razor. Lack of development and keeping with technology is a death sentence in this industry.

I agree there is just no telling the timeframe for new firmware or for some long-awaited features. But ... I'm pretty sure Apple is on record as saying copy&paste is in the queue for features to add, it just did not have a super-high priority when they last spoke about it (which is of course absurd to most of us) - and I feel pretty sure video will get here sometime too ...

Oh come on. Did you really expect a firmware update today? That wasn't even rumored in the slightest, neither were any of the features that you mentioned. The only thing that's new about the iPhone is that iTunes now works over EDGE, GRPS, and 3G.

Boring. I wanted a battery fix. I want my iPhone to be a "wireless" phone again not always near a wall!

They did fix the battery. Since the last update i can go two full days with push on, email on, 3G on and location services as well as wifi all on 24/7.

IF your battery is falling way short of "advertised life", make the appointment with a Genius and take it in for them to look at.

I agree with Sav. I don't even get a full day sometimes and I don't even have 3G on as I don't live in a 3G area.

I don't really care so much about video (I have cycorder) and quite honestly, if I'm going to take videos of something I care about, its gonna be with an actual camera. And copy and paste means nothing to me, personally.

I do want push services, which were promised to us in September. That's my bug.

There's no need to. 1 day of usage with 3G on, push on, LS on, and constant usage is fine for me.
