    Rob - You should be able to search from within the address / URL navigation bar now. Instead of typing in a URL, type in what you wish to search for. Most browsers have had this functionality for a while now and I am surprised some browsers still have a google/bing/yahoo search bar beside the navigation bar.

    Updated my iPad 3 a week ago, with 7.0.3 and it's been fine. No crashes. Normal battery life. It's a bit jerky on the big animations, but better overall that my iPhone 4 with iOS 6. I see no reason to keep the 3 on iOS 6 now.But now I want an iPad with fingerprint sensor! Typing in my passcode is barbaric!

    I'm not sure I like the new little circular hang up button.

    Haven't downloaded the update yet but I've seen pics. I'm on board with everything except the call / end buttons. That is just a stupid change for the sake of changing.

    Still can't download the update to my Mac. It says it's going to take 4 hrs to download, and gives a timeout error after a few minutes. Will try device-direct updates this weekend.

    Why does the iPhone say it's 286 MB while iTunes says it's 1.44 GB?

    Cause the phone does incremental updates and iTunes only does complete installs. This is a GOOD thing for the phones.

    Updated iPad 3 last night. Those reviews about how 7.1 runs much better on the iPhone 4? That helps the iPad 3. My initial reaction is all the herky-jerkiness of transitions has been fixed. My iPad 3 feels noticeably smoother.

    Still can't update my iPhone. Trying it on the phone directly, and I get the same timeout error as with iTunes.

    Ok, wow, Apple borked the shift key. I can't tell anymore if shift is on or off.

    It's east to tell. The arrow is black when shift is on.

    Yeah, but I don't like it. It was easier to tell before the change.

    And then it looks like all the letter keys. It looks different when it's off. This is visually confusing -- backwards, even. I can't fathom how this made it past internal user testing.I'm monitoring battery life. I'm concerned iPhone 5S battery life is being mildly clobbered by 7.1. Seeing signs of rapid drain on our two phones. (Wife's phone dropped from 23% to 18% while locked and in airplane mode in less than 30 min. Abnormal.)

    30% battery drop overnight. Something's wrong with battery management. Unsure if it's specific to 7.1. I saw signs of issues before this. But 7.1 seems to have worsened it. I've turned off Background App Refresh and auto App Update to see if that helps.I'm not alonehttp://www.zdnet.com/iphone-ipad-battery-draining-faster-on-ios-7-1-youre-not-alone-7000027340/http://9to5mac.com/2014/03/13/ios-7-1-makes-everything-faster-including-your-battery-drain/I've seen this minority reporting of battery problems every release since iPhone 4. Friends had terrible battery drains problems on the 4. This is the first time I've had the problem. It's very annoying.
