I think some of us think there "ought" to be updates to address serious shortcomings we discovered, like no copy and paste. I sound like a broken record but it's simply amazing that this thing came out without it.No major updates. I don't know why people thought there would be in the first year.
I agree with you on that man, i don't think they will be major updates!maybe no major updates, but i don't know that major updates are needed. maybe just tweaks...adding of sms, ringtones, copy/paste, a2dp to name a few. they aren't major interface changes per se, but tweaks to make the overall experience of the iPhone better
sorry, bud. you lost all credibility after that one.Yes, I am starting to think that there WONT be any major upgrades! Steve Jobs winked and nodded to get us all to buy the iPhone (which is an unfinished product)...hinting at Flash, and how easy it would be to deliver updates
I asked this of someone else and didn't get a response. So I'll try again. WHY do you have the opinion there won't be any major upgrades to this phone? What do you base your opinion on?This phone was NOT ready for prime-time, and needs a few updates to kick it into gear, which i feel sadly will not come My opinion.
Hey, I would LOVE to eat my words! If I eat my words, then we all win!sorry, bud. you lost all credibility after that one.
unfinished? are you serious? name me one generation one cell phone, hell, any product that was as polished and relatively bug free as the iPhone.
and yes, there will be updates. will you come back when there are and eat your words?
Well said. don't mind the apparent Apple fanboys. The iPhone is lacking in a lot of areas, regardless of what anyone says.Hey, I would LOVE to eat my words! It I eat my words, then we all win!
The reason I feel this way, (and granted I've been a Mac user since my first Apple IIC), is that It feels like Apple is putting it's own commercial interests in front of the overall usability of the phone.
YouTube is my main example. That was a great app for their marketing team to exploit, but in the world of smartphones, I guarantee more businesss users would like copy/paste, multiple calendars, the ability to edit MS office documents.
For a generation 1 phone, The GUI is above and beyond what it could have been. But the absence of so many ESSENTIAL functions is disheartening and takes away from the true potential of the iPhone.
My guess is that Apple will release major software updates that will parallel major hardware upgrades.
That's my opinion...and again...I hope I am wrong, I just cant help be [FONT="]pessimistic[/FONT].
