  • 1. BiteSMS - Ability to send/receive SMS within another application. Not having iOS exit my current application in order to just read an incoming messages makes me wonder why this isn't a part of the core OS yet.
  • 2. 3G Unrestrictor - It is nice to be able to download or use various applications without having to be near a WiFi spot.

Submission + - NFL tries to stop widescreen S**** B*** viewing

I'm surprised to see the word 'law' used in this context.
