too bad iPod Touch 2G's were cut off of the AirPrint for no reason at all.........

this is Apple's Plot to Kill everything Below iPhone 3G.

make all the new apps for 4G devices only and leave the critical and long awaited updates out for older users..*cough*springboardwallpapers*

thats stupid why did the 2G's not get airprint but we have a stupid airplay when most dont have an apple tv boo on apple
The 2G is over two years old.

Many companies don't provide any updates that far into the product's life cycle.

Apple is eventually plotting to kill all iDevices below iPhone 3G (anything above 3Gs will be spared)

this is why all the good apps are not working on anything below iPhone 3G (including 2G)

and GET THIS.

THIS poster that showed AirPrint COULD work on the 2G.
but look at the fucking new one AFTER the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G was released.

notice the 2G is MISSING.

there was NO reason why they had to do that except shaft older users who can't afford a new one who are holding on to their older device

its no coincidence with this and that all the new apps leaving are out the older iDevices.

Apple is pretty much purposely forcing you to upgrade or be left behind.

Strangely, however, the differences between all Apple iDevices are minimal, so they can perfectly well release the update they made for every iDevice rather than only the latest ones.

Cash whores.

I love my piece of shit 2G 8GB iPod, that was labeled as a 3G (for the most part)

but the Company Apple i'm starting to hate.

Yeah, definitely, but Apple doesn't want you to (even though it was 'legalised' IIRC).


LOL so many posts on facebook said "well it seems that jailbreaking is legal now...but..when did we last care??"

this is MY thoughts exactly.

Blackra1n was my friend BEFORE this happened

on TOPIC -

let's hope some smartass jailbreak hacker will exploit the system and give us older 2G and iPhone 3G users what's rightly ours...namely..AirPrint support.

they did it with Apple leaving out the two best (well...one best) options out in iOS 4.0 for older users EX : Springboard wallpapers and Multitasking*..uhm... *sidesteps slowly away and goes toward multif0w*

A business? Wanting to sell products?

The fiends!

You're incorrect in your assumption that its as simple as making it compatible. The 2G/3G, 3GS, and iPhone 4 all differ in the varying chipsets that comprise the device, which require different optimizations and drivers with every release. This translates to increased development time and costs, which Apple decided (as most manufacturer's in this field do) wasn't worth it and would provide an additional detriment to selling new units.

And once again, Apple is far better in this regard than most handset manufacturers. Look at the Motorola CLIQ for example. It's scarcely a year old, released with an outdated version of android, and took a year to get a 9 month old update. Be lucky the device got updates for as long as it did.

That image is fake.
Notice that IT say devices that support multitasking?
iPod touch 2g doesnt.
And people saying that Apple are killing older devices, well if you reenable multitasking and wallpapers you battery will go down in two seconds flat.

If it's not fake, then it must of been a mistake.
Apple wouldn't have added support as with the nest iOS update, support will drop (a.k.a no iOS 5 for iPT2g owners)
There phasing it out.
That image contradicts itself.
BTW, I'm not saying that the ipt2g can't support airprint, just that apple won't give it to them officially.

And how does this update hold out for iphone 3G users?
Since Apple pretty much screwed us over now and then with the 4.x OS. lol
But yeh, is there any point for 3G users?
