Iphone apps are updating

If you log into the app store on your Iphone you will notice that most of apps have released updates the past few days. I am still getting some random app crashing or just going into settings I'll crash to the home screen, I do seem to have to reboot everyday or it gets slow. I love the phone but I think they may have rushed it to market a little to soon. I also wish they would do something about the volume and the power consumption/energy crisis.
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
