    They call it a Notification Center but its the same principle of our notification bar that we have. also able to open camera app right from lock screen, which apps like widget locker allow on android, or for us HTC users running Sense 3.0 its built in. other updates to it minimal and nothing big. link if your interested, or care.

    I guess I just find it funny that the ppl who really want iphone to have an sd card are...android users.

    you mean 'the people who really want iPhone to have SD were potential iphone buyers ', right?

    I skipped over buying iphone because of no SD, proprietary dongle, no swap battery and limited OS...

    (also was ready to buy a macbook when they nixed matte screens. interestingly after buying my ASUS instead, cupertino deiced to offer the inferior matte screen option as a pay for downgrade at the request of customers. -but that story is for a different forum.)

    No I meant android users complain more about iphone then iphone users. Common sense would tell you that means it can't be that bad, android fanboy sense tells you that means ios users are sheep. Go figure...

    It's not an infallible device, obviously. Just like android is not infallible (although you'd never know that here by the way ppl swear android is the messiah). like I said I just find it funny that you guys claim to be happy with android but feel the need to insult apple because of a software update...again..go figure

    Everyone is entitled to there own opinion as well as their own wants, needs, and wishes...
    For some, iPhone is better, for others.. Android, or other systems out there.. I do agree that these ideas have likely been a little influenced by android.. but the whole sd thing should be another topic... phones have had sd card since my first flip phone... long before smartphones.. so an sd card would not be something "stolen" from android.. just something apple finally found necessary/a good idea.
    I do kinda find it funny that apple has created "iCloud".. I know they didn't claim to be the first (at least not that I heard) but I do think cloud computing will grow substantially now that apple is in it... but it is funny that google has been trying to push it for quite some time.

    Im not gonna lie, there are some features in that video that I really liked, but its still generally the same ol' iOS. But WOW that notification bar is nearly identical to ours. Come on Jobs, really?
