  • RT @atebits: "It's just a big iPod touch" is the new "less space than a nomad". :-) #
  • Think of how the iPad will evolve as the software gets updated. Remember the first iPhone? No apps. One page of icons. #
  • @texturadesign I've never missed multitasking, either, because my eyes and fingers can only unitask. in reply to texturadesign #
  • The only convincing argument I've heard for "true" multitasking on iPhone is "I want to listen to Pandora in the background." #
  • @wesley83 I have no idea. They're diffierent architecture, so it's kind of apples and oranges. And I'm a software guy, not a chip guy. :-) in reply to wesley83 #
  • @Metroknow thanks for @stephenfry's review. Instapaper'ed to read later. :-) in reply to Metroknow #
  • For the record, I too would like to stream Pandora in the background on iPhone. But not at the expense of responsiveness and battery life. #
  • @PatrickMoorhead I bounce between email, phone, Twitter, web, and games on my iPhone, too. It works great. Apps save state. in reply to PatrickMoorhead #
  • @ahockley IM apps on iPhone make clever use of push notifications to keep you "logged in" without feeding a process CPU cycles and juice. in reply to ahockley #
  • And before anyone writes me off because I'm an Apple fanboy/apologist, I know I am. Says so right on the tin: http://tinyscreenfuls.com :-) #
  • @PatrickMoorhead you're right, some apps don't save state perfectly. But most do. And that's up to each developer, not the OS. in reply to PatrickMoorhead #
  • @CptNemo9189 LOL I like to disclose my biases up front, even when they're painfully obvious. :-) in reply to CptNemo9189 #
  • RT @aaroneiche: I think the simple answer is you stream Pandora on your iPhone while you're doing other stuff on your iPad. (/me: exactly!) #
  • Re: background Pandora, other apps, like WunderRadio can stream in the background by using the built in media player (which can background). #
  • I had no idea iPhone apps had 5 seconds after closing to do work and save app state: http://bit.ly/98tLHa /via @cldfactory #
  • Scored my iPad predictions. Not to be smug, but I didn't do too bad! (only missed the name and the keyboard dock) :-) http://bit.ly/bXGCSd #
