    I sure wish they would fix some of the problems that exist with the Calendar functionality across the Mac, iPhone and iPad platforms in terms of sharing data and linking to maps, etc. I also wish they would improve the Mail capabilities on the iPhone and iPad so that it is consistent with Mac attachments. iPhoto, or at least the photo handling capabilities and file management needs improvement. Apple keeps pushing the platform forward without addressing significant issues effecting performance and functionality that are simple, logical user interface improvements that should have long since been addressed.

      Yeah, it would be great if there was some new facility for sharing data between the Mac and iOS… sort of like a big Cloud for your data…(seriously, have you been off-world the last couple of weeks?  :-)

    Well this looks like the last 10.6.x update before Lion is released.
