Why the iPhone 3G is rubbish!

Well I bought an iPhone 3G around 1 month ago so I have 1 month experience of using it so I think I have a good idea of it’s capabilities.

First lets start with the positives.

The things I like about the iPhone:-

Web browser. This is probably one the best parts of the device. It is usually quick and the zoom features and rendering engine are quite good.

The phone. Of course a big part of the iPhone is the phone, is it any good? Yes very much probably the best phone experience I’ve had with any phone (although don’t upgrade to v2.1 as since I’ve done this the phone just hangs up randomly while talking to people even though I have full signal)
iPod built-in. The iPod is good. Apple doesn’t have that stupid circular “wheel” to control the volume. There is a separate button for this.

Mozilla adds another part of silent updating: Browser automatically disables incompatible add-ons and marks all others as compatible

Mozilla developers have given the green light to ship Firefox 10 on Tuesday.

Notes from a Mozilla meeting last week said that the upgrade was on for Jan. 31, the next ship date in the every-six-week schedule that the company adopted last year.

The new version includes one of the first components of Firefox’s planned silent update mechanism: The browser automatically disables incompatible add-ons and marks all others as compatible.

Add-ons that work with Firefox 4 or later will be marked as compatible in Firefox 10, Mozilla said.

Complaints about incompatible add-ons have been common since Mozilla shifted to the faster release schedule, as add-on developers have been slow to revamp their code or at least mark their extensions as suitable for the newest browser.
