very informative post on roughly drafted but sounds awfully like a Jobs’s sales pitch.
iPhone will not be able to run multiple apps or worse even one background task.
Now why not let the user decide which apps to run and when. isnt that simple? let me close an app through a task manager type interface. or warn me to minimize an app at my risk. as a user if i am really into a messaging application i want to run it no matter what Steve Jobs thinks is best for me.
a phone is a communication device. and the most important part of being a communication tool is to enable others to get in touch with me when they please NOT when I am staring at my phone. thats like you only have voice mail and your phone never rings and people can call you only when your “call me” app is active.
it is a serious handicap. the most popular applications on a phone are likely to be those that enable communication not enterprise report viewers. Hope Apple has the good sense to update this before the 2.0 firmware is final.
