    Your market app will get updated on the sly right about now; you'll know when it's updated because you'll have to re-accept the market terms of use.

    I was wondering that! Surely they could put a couple more icons on that bar or whatever it is?

    His book should be quite interesting I think. I'll read it if I get the chance. I think that it'll really give us a good insight in to the core of Apple. It'll certainly be interesting to see where they go post iPad3/iPhone5 without him being the mad man he was.

    Dunno what they're doing there, to be honest. I'd rather have a search button than an always-there search bar at the top of the screen.

    Yes they have.

    The Menu button will appear if you run an app which wasn't developed with Honeycomb or ICS in mind, and will just open a typical menu.
    Going forward, the Menu has been functionally replaced by the action bar, and anything which was previously in the menu will appear up there. Which makes sense, because it's a much better interface.

    The search button was removed because it was functionally redundant in any of the vast numbers of apps that had no need to implement search, and it expected that any apps that /do/ want to implement it can add it into the action bar.

    From the presentation it seems that commonly used items will be in a bar at the bottom. That's kind of a waste of screen real estate. Also, how the hell are you supposed to get to the settings in apps etc. I hate iOS's on screen buttons.

    Yeah, I used a friends SGS II, and I don't know how he lives without a search button, I use it all the time in the contacts, gmail etc.

    edit: ^ Just saw your post. Fair enough explanation I guess.

    They will.

    What are you thinking of when I say "action bar"?
