    Right now I think HP makes the only printer that is compatible with this system, but I am sure BestBuy will have a bunch to chose from by Black Friday!

    I thought this was only going to work with Mac OS?

    The "biggie" -- multi-tasking!

    When I first installed 4.2, I just kind of randomly started opening apps to make sure they would still work. (Most did!) So then when I went to check to see what was opened in the multi-tasking window (by double-tapping the Home button), EVERY app I had opened was in there meaning that it was not really closed all the way, but just sort of "hibernating" or waiting until I needed it again. To close these apps, you hold down one of them until it starts to "wiggle" (just like if you were going to move an app on your screen) and then you can close them one at a time.

    I can see where it might be possible to run out of memory real fast if you forget to close out your apps periodically. I have also heard that battery life is somewhat degraded with 4.2 and this might be the reason why (but I don't know for sure).

    So far.... not impressed!

    hmm, i might hold off for the moment.

    do you think that iOS4 upgraded apps will still work on 3.2.2?

    I imagine they damn well better be backwards compatible!

    i did read somewhere it will work with any shared printer on mac or pc but i dont know if thats the case at the moment.

    i prefer having the switch on the side as the orientation lock rather than a mute switch for the sound, now u need to double click the home button and swipe across to find the button, you just need to hold the volume down switch for about a second to mute it anyway.

    I can tell you that it will not work on a Windows-based network with a shared printed... unless I am doing something wrong!
