Stupid Apple iPhone 2.0

So Apple released the 2.0 iPhone update today…yada yada yada…where’s the Terminal App in the App Store? Where are /any/ useful apps?

Now, before you tell me “but you could just write one and add it to the store” – really? If that’s the case, then where are the countless other apps that have already been written to tweak the iPhone, run a terminal, get remote SSH access, and the like? I suspect Apple has no interest in graciously allowing people to actually use the iPhone like that. Or am I wrong?

This is annoying, but until the App Store has something useful in it, I think I actually have to keep my existing iPhone on a 1.1.3 release. I just hope someone is able to convince King Jobs to add a terminal, or more likely, there’s a crack released for 2.0 that makes it actually useful.

    I still can’t believe it even occurred to anyone to restrict what apps could be installed. That’s the one thing that will likely keep me from buying an iPhone at all.

    It’s been cracked. Go spend the cash already.

    I would be interested to hear what your your definition of “useful” is, and how the in-built applications and those available on the AppStore fail to meet your criteria.
