Consensus iPhone feature requests from the editors of Macworld. Some of these are obvious and most are reasonable, but some of them glide right past the effect the feature might have on battery life. E.g. support for Flash in MobileSafari. Everyone says they want Flash on the iPhone, but what they really want is Flash support on the iPhone that doesn’t suck your battery dry, and Flash for Macs is a CPU hog. Likewise, I suspect, for video support from the built-in camera.
