  1. If Apple would restore native support for DOD CAC cards in OSX (worked in Tiger but went away with Leopard?) and make it a feature for iPhone and iPad they would invade the DOD environment. I work on a Navy base and their is HUGE demand for the iPad but it’s a no go without CAC support!

  2. Apple needs be more responsive to user requests, the basic kind.

    Eg. I cannot copy an address out of my iPhone address book…. I order to copy a contact I have copy and paste each line!!!!!

    Hello!!!! this is the company that invented copy and paste.
