    Actually, I’ve seen at least two issues (apparently) *FIXED* in the 4.5 firmware.

    ISSUE #1: lock screen would often hang when first turning the device on. could not swipe the screen up to access the content for the first few seconds. this appears to have been fixed, at least for me.

    ISSUE #2: sometimes the device would continue to play music after the headphone jack had been unplugged, thus forcing you to “check” the play/pause state before putting it away. so far, this appears to have been fixed.

    Hey… I’m as excited for the “updates” as the next guy, but the “fixes” are where it’s at! :)
