for those of you with iphones

what (preferably concerning networking) about your iphone frustrates you the most? besides the fact that it's slow. For instance:

  • would you like to be able to take pictures and have them automatically sync with a folder on your computer?
  • cache certain information locally without expressing it explicitly?
  • do you notice your battery draining when you do certain wireless-intensive or GPRS-intensive tasks?

Actually, come to think of it, anyone who uses their phone for more than talking might have ideas. Please let me know! Thanks!

  1. Steve Jobs being an asshole.

    I can't upload images taken on the phone via a form on the Web.

    I can't mount the phone as a USB mass storage device in Linux and copy my music onto it directly.

    I can't easily back up the contacts stored on the phone.

    I would need to re-purchase a song that I already own to make it into a ringtone.

    And so on.

    Apple treats its customers the way that music companies treat their customers. The maddening part is that it's still the best phone that I know of. :-(

  3. Probably not. I think you can just SSH to the phone after jailbreaking it and do whatever you want.

    But being in a situation where you're trying to do something that Apple is actively trying to prevent you from doing seems like a recipe for frustration.
