Serious question for those that find iOS limited.. What exactly is it that you can't do? Or think you can't do?

 

Cheers...

But then nor do I find Android or Windows or DLNA or Bluray players limited in the way that some people do.

I'm not sure if there are things i couldn't do on a Windows phone, but doing some things i can do can be erm, trickier, than doing them on Android or iOS.

I meant Windows desktop, which is a fine operating system in its '7' guise, as was XP.  Vista was not.  I only played with a Windows 7 phone for five minutes but it was quite nice.

My iPhone won't cook Spanish food.  It can't perform even rudimentary maintainence on my mountain bike. It doesn't remind me to perform tasks that I forgot to tell it to remind me to do.  These are my biggest grievances.

Have you tried changing settings in 'Language'?

Ah.. I've currently got a Nokia Lumia 800 here and i think it's lovely, great build quality and feel to it, nice in white too. Not sure i could live with Windows 7.5 OS though...

IMO, the only thing I'd like to see on iOS are widgets/live tiles.

It wouldn't suprise me if it showed up in ios6 SDK for notification centre.  Thought it was odd to have weather and the stock ticker but nothing else?
