I am a computer consultant and have my own firm on the North Shore of Chicago, IL.
I bought my first iPhone last month and here is a list of some of things that need to happen:

[1] Bluetooth syncing support - come on guys, I have been Bluetooth syncing my Nokia's for YEARS.

[2] Bluetooth keyboard support - Palm, Windows Mobile and Nokia, all do it and have for YEARS.

[3] Bluetooth stereo headset support - it's a freaking iPod, while you are at it, please support Bluetooth in ALL new iPods. Geez.

[4] Selection, cutting & pasting Word, Excel and Google Doc editing - Palm does it and has for YEARS. How hard can this be with all the fancy pants stuff this phone can do? I can play with a Labyrinth ball on this phone for Pete's sake.

[5] Thinner Stylus support, and the POGO for $24.95 is not what I mean. I have small fingers and the typing and drawing on this thing is just too freakin' hard.

[6] Arrow Back < and Arrow Forward > on iPhone's virtual screen keyboard

I did go to Apple's site which as far as I'm concerned is way too complicated to find where to leave feedback. Where did you go? Please send link.

Not denying anything but if he wants things changed, posting here is the wrong place.

Haha. I don't think the OP really thought he could change anything. On the other hand, I think ranting can make you feel better

I think you're overestimating the importance of your opinion. Steve Jobs doesn't care what you think. But a product manager who might see the feedback from that page might. Although I doubt it.

Why are people so obsessed with whether they are going to change anything or not.. or whether rants or opinions are interesting or important based on whether they are likely to change anything?!

Welcome to MacNN forums. Nothing posted here changes a thing, nor should we - the posters - expect that.

Clear, all you people who have the path to Apple feedback on your clipboard with your finger hanging over command-V just in case you see a rant?!!
I could take Sean Connery in a fight... I could definitely take him.

What's the big deal about Bluetooth sync? With MobileMe, the iphone syncs automatically over the wireless network.

Yes but for those of us that refuse to pay $100/year for MobileMe, that point is pretty useless.

Yeah and my old rotary dial land line phone got perfect reception every call. What the hell Apple? Whats with the static on some calls??

And if ranting about something that will have no effect is fine, then so should ranting about ranters.

The only thing clear to me is your reading comprehension needs work. He asked for the link:
