    Double tap the home button....
    All those apps never "permanently" closed.
    Like safari doesn't reset the web page anymore

    yea but remember the ios 4.0 speech by jobs video that was posted on this site weeks ago.

    when an app is in the background it doesnt work like pc/mac multitasking it's not running

    the state it was in last is saved and then it's pretty much frozen in that state, uses no ram or cpu (for cases of non push apps only)

    until you elect to go back to the app then it starts back from the saved state. so safari in the background uses no cpu/ram when in background

    only when you have push turned on for apps that use push and eventually get rewritten by their devs to support multitasking (such as pandora) will it continue to run but in limited fashion

    its a really funky way of doing multitasking and not true multitasking like pc's/mac's etc.
