    Most of my win mo customers have no idea that there are background tasks. And then they come in and want to know why their phone is so slow, or why the battery dies to quickly. Apple made the smart move by not opening that can of worms. A lot of us nerds have to realize that a very large majority of iPhone users have no idea what they're doing, so it needs to be simple. And the battery life on the 3G sucks enough as it is!
