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.

Apple could have come up with "i" for "innovation"... iMac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and now iOS? and maybe there are other "i"s I don't know about.

Frankly, "i" shouldn't mean "internet" (if that's indeed what it was meant to mean) in a world where it has become so common. It reminds me of those people who were eagerly adding "2000" to company or product names... 2000 today is still not stone age but close enough to sound outdated.

Not that the "innovation" isn't debatable but that's another story.
