  1. I would love to see better Exchange integration in Mail, iCal, Address Book and iSync. I use a Mac in an Exchange environment at my work. Groupcal and AddressX work well, but I would love to see full integration available.

  2. Oh for crying out loud, Mesh, will you drop it already? Your unceasing paranoia about something that hasn’t even happened yet is really getting on my nerves. If you’re so terrified about your security, why don’t you switch to a more secure platform? (Oh, right.)

  3. Funny these lists all come out a month before the WWDC. For Apple to integrate what the customer wants, they need to see these type of lists a year or so earlier. The storyboard comes first, not last. I think we are in for a surprise.
