    It's just terrible... that guy obviously can't stand the idea that Android is gaining ground faster than Apple.

    The article is a joke, in his first point he says that what PC World said about not being able to use the iPhone as a broadband modem is false. "You can use it anywhere in the world but here in the United States." Well PC World is published in the United States. It is designed for readers here in the U.S.! So what they said is true, you CAN"T use the iPhone as a modem.

    I haven't even gotten to the rest of the crap yet! LOL

    I'd stay away from magazine reviews. A huge majority of their revenue comes from advertising and they aren't going to bite the hand that feeds them.

    Funny article, it is natural to react like that. Just imagine that guy discovering something that crashes his expectations of the iphone.

    Seriously just look at the name of the website.
    Basically he thinks Apple is doing him favors minimizing his exposure to multitasking and the sin of Flash.

    LOL this article is a joke. Especially at the "multitasking" video, that's terrible video to show the multitasking capability. He's opening word pad and switching between it and settings. Let us see how it would fair by opening a multiple programs.

    By "Jake" do you mean the one from a "JT"?

    Because I don't see a comment from "Jake"

    I loved JT's answer though! :D

    I know that's what really got me too! That was ridiculous all he was doing was switching between non memory intensive programs and claimed it was multitasking.

    Oh well, I just noticed that that site is called TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog. No wonder he was pulling strings for Apple. bla.

    Isn't the new iPhone OS' multitasking more akin to an app switcher than true backgrounding?

    It definitely looks like it's more of an app switcher. It freezes the other app when you aren't using it. I don't exactly understand how that works though. Pandora wouldn't be frozen if you decided to go on the Twitter app, right?

    I try to use the link at the bottom of their page to see the rest of the comments about the article, but all it does is take me deeper into fanboy territory. It just links to more apple hype.

    Has anyone else been able to see more then the first page of comments? I think that's why I never saw Jake's. The links at the bottom don't show more comments:

    Nope. Clicking next 20 comments would bring me to another article. Poor JT, his comments are rated 0.5/3
