    Engadget asked Steve and co. about the lack of anything that can keep track of a timeline for something like a Twitter or IM app. Scott says that the new save states for applications will be much better than the current situation. Steve also said that they stand behind push notifications and still think it's the right choice for this platform.
    Then we asked about widgets or glanceable information and why it hasn't been implemented on this platform or the iPad. "Apple sort of pioneered the idea of glanceable information like widgets and it seems to me you've gone to great lengths to avoid something like that in this new OS. Can you tell me a little bit about why you've decided that? With something like the iPad, it seems perfect opportunity where you have a lot of real estate." Steve: "We shipped on Saturday, and rested on Sunday." (lots of laughs) We pressed and asked if it was possible. Steve: "Anything is possible."

    when Steve was asked if there were plans to add Flash or java, his response was a flat: No.

    11:29AM Ryan Block from GDGT: What about running unsigned apps? Steve: You know, there's a porn store for Android. Anyone can download them. You can, your kids can. That's just not a place we want to go.

    11:38AM Q: Are you concerned about leaving out your older customer base (with the lack of features for older devices). A: (Steve) Well, a lot of these products that are out there are the most recent products. The old devices will get the update, but they'll miss some of these features like multitasking. If that's an incentive for them to upgrade to a new device... terrific.

    11:40AM Q: How do you close applications when multitasking? A: (Scott) You don't have to. The user just uses things and doesn't ever have to worry about it. (Steve) It's like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it. In multitasking, if you see a task manager... they blew it. Users shouldn't ever have to think about it.

    11:40AM Steve: "Okay, thanks for coming. Thanks!"

    i noticed that the compatibility only runs for ipod touch 32gb and 64gb models. i own a 8 gb mc model 3.1.3 ipod touch. does this mean i'm not eligable for an update?

    Edit: I am eligable, but with no multi-tasking :P oh well, I'm honestly very happy with my ipod touch the way it is. it would have been an added bonus but i doesn't bother me that much.

    I must say though with the iPod is multi-tasking really that relevant? When I had my Touch I never seemed to need to multi-task.

    I like the idea of folders - that's going to help me to organise my apps a lot better by category and make the whole thing easier to navigate.

    I love the idea of being able to persaonalise the iPhone with wallpapers etc...it's like they looked at the Jailbreak community and said...so THAT's what they want!

    I just can't wait for the ability to be able to listen to internet radio in the back ground whilst doing other tasks such as using skype to chat.
