Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

I feel for ya, mate.

Thing is, if Apple really don't want people playing with how the iPhone's file system, then why not create some sort of app that acts like a middle-man hub? Meaning, you activate the app, allocate a certain amount of storage space to it, say 4GB, and then plug it (or sync via bluetooth or whatever) into your non-iTunes PC. Your PC then sees your iPhone/Pad as a 4GB external storage device. Drag n drop your songs, podcasts and movies and unplug. Then the app takes over and sorts your files the "Apple Way" (whatever that is).

Should be simple enough a job for Apple to do, me thinks. We still don't get anything close to robust file management, but at least us non Win/Mac users who don't have iTunes installed can still transfer our media effortlessly.
