    At the rate apples going, you will not only have ads, you will PAY to have ads.

    At least you get multi tasking I guess... I mean sure its 5 years after the fact but better late than never I suppose. I just do not understand Jobs logic.

    Read through it all... looking forward to it. Being able to use Pandora in the background with other things running is actually a pretty big deal to me.

    I have too much music in too many disorganized places to fit it all onto 16GB much less 200GB, so streaming is where it's at for me, especially at work when I'm plugged in to a power line. Getting calls and having to kill the app really sucks.

    Huh...my Palm Pre already does that - but everyone that owns an IPhone I know says it can multitask. Liars.

    They confuse app-switching for multitasking.

    Just goes to show how effective the Apple marketing machine is. Convincing 5 million people that an expensive and crippled phone is a must have item.

    Truf, you will get more than your moneys worth from what I have read. A lot of neat stuff comes along with jail breaking.
