    This always gets trotted out. I tried jailbroken multitasking on my iPhone 3G. It was a horrible experience - made the phone really laggy. It felt like a nasty hack. Apple might be late to the party, but their solution will at least be usable.

    Yes they are late, and yes there solution might be usable, its the fact that they'll throw a big song and dance about it like they did with the whole copy and paste thing and maybe even in a few years time they'll try and sue someone for having multitasking as well...

    "New ad platform"?

    I already get far too much in the way of ads shoved through my letter box and bombarding my few TV-watching hours. I DO NOT want them sent to my phone. As it happens, I'm not interested in iPhones anyway, but if I was, that would kill it completely for me..

    Re: News - Apple adds multitasking and a new ad platform in iPhone OS 4

    Most people who buy iphones don't know what multi-tasking is (if they did, then why would they buy an iphone )... so I don't think any iphone user will be jumping up in excitement regarding this...

    Even my 7650 from 2002 had multi-tasking...

    Apple won't be bringing multitasking to the 3G anyway (probably due to their lack of ram - 3G = 128MB, 3GS has 256MB)

    Only apple could introduce ads as a "great new feature"...

    Tbh I'm curious to how well the 3GS will handle the new os. I've got a feeling it will lose a lot of its smoothness.

    Umm, I find that jailbreaking/unlocking iPhone is not the most straightforward of things, especially because of there are different ways and some seem better than others. So I always spend some time researching before I go ahead with it , and it works just fine

    That said, I didn't really jailbreak it for the multi-tasking anyway, it was just so that I can run trusted applications that takes some time before they are approved by Apple Store.

    Re: News - Apple adds multitasking and a new ad platform in iPhone OS 4

    It'll likely make a bigger difference to the 3GS replacement when it turns up.

    They're multitasking is really state-saving, which will work ok for most things, but forget IRC and web browser at same time if you want to stay online with IRC whilst browsing.

    Its getting there I guess.

    Trying to decide myself wehter to get a iPhone or a Android handset from my old Samsung D900i which annoys the hell out of me.

    Multitasking proper will be on whatever the next iPhone is, its the way they make there money, tell everyone they dont need a feature, then include it in the new model and make a big song and dance about it..

    My brother just got a HTC Legend, very impressed. The Android OS has improved a lot in comparison to my magic and the screen quality is top notch. I personally think its better then the iphone and very good value for money considering you can get it free on £20 a month.

    Oh indeed, the performance of a mates HTC Desire nocks that of the 3GS iPhone into a cocked hat.

    But the battery life is just as bad as the iphone, which imho isn't good enough.
