Why Apple's and Voice are newly on my home screen

One of the design principles of the original PalmPilot was "no delays". In the time it took to get to the Newton's note pad, the PalmPilot and Palm III user would have entered their task item and put the device away.

I miss that philosophy. It takes about 30 seconds for may of my 3G iPhone 3rd party apps to accomplish simple tasks.

Apple's apps are much faster - though still not as fast as the Palm III native apps. So even though I like the 3rd party alternatives much better, Apple's and "Voice" are back on my home screen. The better apps are just too slow.
