If they release the iPhone, they need to have a battery replacement system. This is a deal killer for me. Batteries wear out, and if I’m going to buy an iPhone, I might have it for 3 years before upgrading. Note, I don’t care if it is done at an Apple store. It just needs to be fast. For those who aren’t near an Apple store, it might be a smart thing to make this a self-service option. An iPod is not essential, but a cell phone is.
If Apple wants to sell me a laptop, they need to split the big button into two buttons. Chording isn’t going to cut it.
Finally, I was listening to some mp3s in iTunes and as I was cleaning out my library, I noticed that there wasn’t an option to change the playspeed. I think this is essential for podcasts. Quite often, people just talk way to slow.
