    Some good stuff in 4.0 but I'm a bit disappointed that notifications are being updated in a way I did not expect. I was under the impression it would look more subtle rather than continuing to pop up in my face each and every time.

    Overall I was underwhelmed with the 4.0 release there was nothing new that a competitor does not already do. Granted no one has everything all in one place like the iPhone 4.0, but I didnt see any real innovation. It feels like they are just playing catch up with RIM / Android.

    Innovative for iPhone YES

    Innovative in general - NO

    Not the A+ upgrade I hoped for.

    They have to cut it off somewhere. Really no different that Android in that respect. Time for you to upgrade...

    Agreed. Plus no updates to the Homescreen and Notifications. My Jailbroken 3GS does most of this now and more. Oh well maybe more surprises await but I'm not holding my breath.

    I have multitasking on my 3G because it's jailbroken but the limited memory really hampers the 3G's ability to do it well. Often I'll get low memory notifications.

    I'm sure Apple knows the limitations of the 3G and it's because of these limitations the 3G isn't getting multitasking.

    The requested changes to notifications may still happen. We only saw a small portion of the changes to the OS. I would love to see changes to the notifications, but if it doesn't happen in this release, I'm still thrilled with the changes they showed off today. Looks good so far.

    I saw little worth losing my jailbreak over... Hope the hardware is more of an upgrade or the competition is starting to look better

    I wasnt all that impressed with the new improvements, but Apple did surprise us with this event that was only found out about a week before. Who knows, Apple may surprise us again with some BIGGER changes. Guess I have nothing to make me wanna stop jailbreaking. Oh well.......

    Multi Tasking is Great, but my jail broken 3gs does that already....

    Unified Inbox will be very helpful, i am glad about that, but i dont think i'll kill my jailbreak for that. Where is the lock screen modifications?? I dont think i could use my iPhone without lock info...

    Huge let down that they didn't fix the notifications, that and no widgets/weather/locksscreen info has it looking way behind that incredible HTC evo, I just don't it. Another year of annoying pop up notifications that cancel out all those before them making them essentially useless?

    I'm not thrilled either, but:
    1.Apple has a history of doing this type of thing (remember original iPhone owners being left out of MMS?)
    2. The 3G is 2 years old and doesn't have enough memory to run background apps efficiently. (although letting the user make that decision would be OK with me)
    3. I'd wait to see the specs on the NEW iPhone before upgrading .

    I'm not too sure that widgets/lockscreen mods aren't some of the other features as yet unmentioned.
    Probably only work on new iPhone much like the 3G won't do augmented reality or compass function.

    So what they showed us today was everything that OS 4 has to offer? Huh... I thought it was a preview. Maybe you have seen into the future and know exactly was OS 4 will bring to the table?

    It always amazes me when people hear only what they want to hear and fill in the gaps with pessimism.

    I was really hoping the multitasking was more in the way of "Backgrounder" on my JB iPhone. It puts me in control of what and when I want something in the background. The way it sounded was if the developer doesn't want to allow backgrounding, they don't code it in.

    I also was wanting something like SBSettings. A much easier way of toggling settings.

    iPhone 3G doesn't get multi-tasking, iPhone (EDGE) gets nothing! Take a look at the iPhone OS 4 Compatibility section on Apple's site.

    I was really hoping for a rework of notifications, but I suppose that's not something they really have to announce at a developer conference as it's just a UI change and not necessary for API calls to change ( if they do it properly ).

    Lockscreen info is one of the reasons I jailbreak, and something like this WOULD require new APIs and to tell the developers about. Oh well, guess my reasons to jailbreak is less but still is that 1 thing I really would miss.

    Multi-tasking I really don't see what the big hoopla is all about although a bit annoying I do fine with my single tasking. However ofcourse if I have it I'll use it like the coming back to the app just how you left it part though.

    Universal mailbox sounds cool but not a big deal to me I kinda like my mailboxes seperated. It would be easier to see both so I'm 50/50 on that one.

    I love the App folders the most I will definately get the most out of that feature.

    Well it seems Apple knows how to get my money LOL I'm still waiting on my iPad here in Canada and after that I will either wait for the 4th gen iPhone to drop and get an older 3Gs once the prices go down so I can get 4.0 and still JB.
