Re: Apple just works?
I read your comment, and I'm still a bit confused as to the point of your "complaint"...are you just randomly complaining that the iPhone isn't natively capable of being a mass storage device by now? If so, what exactly are you trying to import onto the iPhone that you would need this kind of functionality so badly in a native form (since it's perfectly capable of doing it after a jailbreak). Moving media files to the iPhone? Why would Apple even consider a generic mass storage feature for this function when they are so heavily invested in iTunes, which does the same thing in a more protected environment? Moving documents to the iPhone? This is also something done within the native infrastructure through an assortment of apps...and why? Again, to protect the end user experience with iOS from buggy performance present on ANY other device running an OS that allows for mass storage functionality.

It would seem that you skipped over the conversation yourself, and just kind of plugged your opinion in there without really investing into the conversation...that's fine and all, but don't be surprised when people question your post afterwards.
