This article pretty much sums it up, the 2.01 fix did not seem to help me any. I hope this can be fixed via a firmware update, I hope the chipset in the phone is not the root cause of the issues.

As for the software update it seems to not be as glitchy but the devise does still slow down a bit between reboots. Switching between program is not quite as bad but sms is still slow to open and I still get the occational freeze here and there.

Well it's been a few years, almost 3 since Houston has had a scare. From the look of it probably no big deal, but it could strengthen info a hurricane. Maybe we'll get luck like Rita, I got the backup servers and bandwidth up today in preparation.

WORK FROM HOME!
I know a lot of jobs require employees in the office, but there is a lot that can be done from home. I also think it will improve employee quality of life and save energy not just gas.
- You don't have to get up as early
- No wasting time and gas sitting in traffic
- No running out to lunch driving around
- Less distractions - family and kids can be a challenge for some
How many servers do you use?
Server virtulization is now mature and mainstream. Most servers under utilize their cpu or now cpu's with multiply cores. If your running perfmon on your windows server will see low cpu utilization unless the server is a heavy hitter like and SQL box. You can now buy one really nice server and run several servers on one box alowing you to decommission older equipment and saving on your electric bill. There are plenty of free server virtualzation products that will work fine for smaller businesses. You will also gain hardware Independence. You can move a server by just copying a few files.
I'm also hoping they work on Exchange email, it is a bit stripped down and the no cut and paste lack of function really sucks for a product like this. I know it's not perfect but there are some basic funtions that are very annoying. Like not being able to snooze taks or if there is a way please let me know what I'm missing. I also don't like the inability to propose a new meeting time.
I'm really wishing for microsoft compatible rdp client, please Mister Jobs and Gates give this ability to us. Yes you can use vnc but I do not want to load it on my servers.
Some of the things I really like-
- vpn but still wishing for rdp
- web apps like my monitoring server, helpdesk server and spam filters - nothing yet for firewalls, maybe watchguard can come up with an Iphone app
- I do like Google maps my son likes watching the dots and stop asking are we there yet
- Pick and choose is a great grocery shopping app
- Iremote is freaking awesome it uses wifi to control you itunes on your desktop
- I'm digging youtube, I use it for Elmo video's for my daughter at bedtime
- The camera works great you just have to keep still like any other cellphone camera
- I don't like the mute button and wish it were a switch to lock the phone - ok this one is a complaint
- There are so many cool things, I've not had the desire to waste my time and play games on the Iphone
