iPhone Finally Getting Full Multi-Tasking

March 31, 2010 15:35:34.822

The 4.0 version of the iPhone OS will finally take us to where we were with Windows 3.0 - task switching:

The technology, detailed by people familiar with Apple's plans for the new firmware, will finally allow users to launch multiple apps in the background and quickly switch between them, as AppleInsider exclusively reported earlier this month. Currently, a running app must be quit when the user returns to the Home screen.

For all the verbiage about how "you don't really need this", chat apps (skype, irc, AIM) are way, way less useful if you have to fully quit and log back in every time you want to check something else.
