    I totally agree - iPhone doesn't make sense without 3rd party apps, given how slow Apple adds things.

    As much as I'd like to disagree with this article and defend a company that I respect and admire because of their long time ideology of "thinking differently," I'm afraid that I can't in this particular instance. Simply stated, the iPhone post upgrade is garbage!

    Whilst I'm not prepared to sell my Macbook Pro and jump ship to over to Bill's camp, I must say that I am quite disappointed in Apple and that this disappointment will no doubt result in me "think differently" in the future when it comes to purchasing future Apple products.

    Well, Gizmodo does have a point... Apple should undersand that an open iPhone is the best phone around. A locked iPhone that shows you the weather and stocks? WOW I soooooo don't need to follow stocks when I'm out side my house. and I canstick my head out the window for weather, don't get me wrong, it's nice and I would like this apps somewhere around my Installer.app.

    Apple. Open iPhone for us and show us all the great company that you are.
    I know it hard to turn your back at something you've said and sure At&T is on your back with a shotgun. but help us out in making this phone the great phone that it is.

    I don't understand why people are updating their iphones to version 1.1.1 just for a wifi song option through itunes, and the starbuck thing. Oh, and the speakerphone is apparently louder. It seems like one needs to pick their own battles. I would rather have the freedom to use 3rd party apps whenever I want without the version 1.1.1. That is my perogative to not upgrade my phone to the 1.1.1 because I am just fine with how it is currently and it gives me freedom to use 3rd party apps.

    The other thing I don't understand is THE 1.1.1 IS NOT MANDATORY TO UPGRADE? Why don't people just turn off "check for updates" in itunes and continue to use their iphone like they have the last 2 weeks???!!! Neither Gizmodo or any of us are obligated to upgrade our firmware. I really fail to see what the big drama is with all of this. Is a louder speakerphone and itunes wifi really that big of a deal?

    Yeah, I agree with you Greattimes07. I mean there is nothing soooooo amazing to update for. Even if the 1.1.1 upgrade came with a hot blondie on a Roll Royce... mmm ok maybe that will make me change my mind, he he he, but this 1.1.1 doesnt even gives you copy&paste, that its a basic.
    13 Unlocked iPhones and counting!!!

    I may have to risk it if it came with a hottie on a rolls royce. :-) But until that day, I'm stickin with my current unlocked 1.02 phone. Why? Um, cuz I can do whatever I want with it with 3rd party apps! hehe

    That article is right on the money. The iPhone is a much weaker offering without all of the third party software.

    The problem is that even if you don't want any new features (and there are quite a few subtle ones in 1.1.1, ranging from improved CoverFlow handling, better podcast integration, all the way through to the more obvious double-tap custom actions and international alphabet support) there are also security fixes:

    7 Safari vulnerabilities were patched, including a fairly dangerous one where if you have two Safari pages open and one is malicious, it could steal data (eg, credit card number entry) from the other page.

    This a known, exploitable vulnerability. If too many people remain on 1.0.2, then it is viable to be used.

    There are also patches for man-in-the-middle attacks for Mail interception, etc.

    List of iPhone 1.1.1 security vulnerabilities fixed.

    My gut feeling is that apple will NEVER open up the iphone for third party apps - at least for the next year or two. It will require them to provide an api which will make it harder for them to change things down the line since the os isnt very mature. Also, I would thikn they would need to add a proper security layer since 3rd party apps have full access to anything and can wipe out the os.
