MacWorld: Ten Features iOS 4.2 Still Needs

Streaming your media to iOS devices ;)
I used to love iPhone - November 24, 2010 at 12:56pm
Yes, this is another iPhone > Android post, but seriously, my HTC Desire (and most android based phones) have: Bluetooth transfer both ways - Check Ability to mount smb file shares - Check Wifi AND Bluetooth syncing - Check Not only run different themes, but has a community full of people creating whole new roms - Check Can upgrade without worrying about firmware - Check Can NATIVELY access files on my phone, move/add/remove/copy songs/videos/pictures etc - CHECK CHECK! Can play FLAC audio files - CHECK!!! I understand the fact that a lot of people love their iPhone for it\'s beautiful design, ease of use and what not, but if you can get passed this (like I did), the android platform is just too good to pass up. My only criticism is the Android store... it has a great selection of apps AND GAMES but the layout sucks. I\'m waiting for the day that someone gets a decent usable version of the Android firmware running on IP4 and iPad... because as of now, those 2 just sit on my desk gathering dust. ps: this was sent from my MacBook Pro running Fedora Linux :D

hasnt anyone learned apple hardly listens to the real things we want for our software upgrades. they add what would benifit them like airprint and all that now they can start making printers and speakers that will take advantage of airplay. when u think abiout it the iphone is behind always will be sadly because apple just simply sucks! android will get better and take over with tons more options im sure in a few years it will dominate and thats apples own fault.i myself have been wanting a update to be able to resize your pics u send in a MMS like we have when we send a email . it takes to damn long to send a full size pic.why couldnt apple add this simply feature. cause they HALF ASS EVERYTHING! iphone white! never came out by the time it does the next iphone will be out lol. i think this will be my last year with apple the android is looking better the only thing i dont like is they dont have nearly as many apps and also the retina display thats about all tho. next iphone i hope will have a 4.3 screen with higher res to accomidate the screen a better camera .and how about a nice homescreen with live streaming info like MOTOBLUR but diffrent
