David Heinemeier Hansson runs down the list of problems with iPhone OS 2.0. I’ve seen just about all of these, too. The temporary freezes are particularly annoying. The Mac’s SPOD/beachball cursor is infamously annoying, but at least when it appears, you see it, and you know not to bother clicking or typing until (you hope) it goes away. On the iPhone, you get no visual indication that the system is too busy to accept input, so you just sit there tapping repeatedly until it comes back.
