For the people complaining about not multitasking on older hardware...I'm sure they'll find a way to do it if you jailbreak it

They already do its called backgrounder :p

Yea, I was hoping for unified notifications too. :(

I didn't care about a new UI, though. The current UI works well, and the addition of folders will help organize. Creating a new UI basically just makes people learn new things, and if the current UI works well, why change it?

The iPhone's UI needs to be updated to match the iPad's UI.

What about the iPad's UI though? I guess you're talking about the "light metal" look. That would be nice, but it's a very minor change.

From Gizmodo's liveblog:

Q: Why have you veered away from widgets on the iPad?

A: We just shipped it on Saturday. And then we rested on Sunday.

Q: So widgets are possible?

A: Everything is possible.

Ryan Block from GDGT: What about running unsigned apps?

Steve: You know, there's a porn store for Android. Anyone can download them. You can, your kids can. That's just not a place we want to go.

Lol

They better not just pop up full screen, they should be hidden at the bottom like they are now, if you so wish to click on them then fair enough. I'll be pretty ****ed if they just show up though :/

WOW. Looks like i'm getting an Android whistle.gif

Yep. Although it isn't a minor change. Many apps would be updated to this new UI. Why can't we have full consistency between the 2 different platforms?

It is going to suck to have mismatched UIs across the different products. The iPad isn't getting the new OS until fall though. Where is the logic in that?

from what was shown, they are full screen and appear before the app is running, and after the app is closed.

I imagine they have more in store for the iPad's version of OS 4.

Well that sucks. Full screen adverts are NEVER EVER a good thing. There will be a lot of complaints I can imagine.

From the way the iAd's look, they are small just like the current ads we see. And then when you click on them it expands to full screen and becomes interactive. I thought everyone saw that from this: iphone-os-4-0323-rm-eng.jpg

Which then expanded in to this when clicked:

iphone-os-4-0324-rm-eng.jpg

True I suppose, does this mean when they introduce an 'iPad only' NEW feature we start to get mismatched versions? I'm not really sure how Apple's updates work, will they update the OS for all devices?

Some interesting questions were asked...

Q: How do you close applications when multitasking? A: (Scott) You don't have to. The user just uses things and doesn't ever have to worry about it. (Steve) It's like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it. In multitasking, if you see a task manager... they blew it. Users shouldn't ever have to think about it.

I'm actually excited about those iAds, if they are all going to be interactive/interesting....much better than the current situation. I'd want to watch a movie trailer, or something by Nike(remember Nike football) than those current advertising junk bars.
