Apple So, I might not be able to do much work on OSNews due to my internship (I always wondered what tumble weeds looked and sounded like on a website - now I know), but I did know one thing: Monday, June 21, is iTunes day. This means launching that horrid mess to go through the painstakingly archaic backup/update iTunes/update iOS routine (and yes, they still try to cheat you into installing Safari) - because Apple released iOS 4.0 today, adding a number of welcome features to bring the iOS up to par with the competition.

They sold it up to recently. My dad bought an iPhone four months ago. Four months, and already outdated?

Sure they were selling it, but it was not the current model. Did you not tell him that? Did the advertising not tell him that?

I've found other devices available to me that weren't current and I would hardly expect, as quickly as phones (and other hand-held devices) come and go, that they would receive first rate treatment.

I'm not saying that it's fair but companies put limits on what they'll support. If anyone buys an iPhone 3G S next week, they shouldn't expect a lot of support in 1 or 2 years, even though that would be nice.

Imagine the poor first generation users who won't even get security fixes.
