Its likely new in 2.0... and a long time coming

Having contacts buried within the phone section makes them difficult to access. I hope they give us a way to add a contact to an email with this revision. Its one of those basic things you just assume any smart phone can do but weirdly Apple has decided we don't need.

I hope it's a new icon for the 2.0 firmware upgrade.

They have this on the iPod Touch I think anyway, so it would make sense to become a "top level icon" on the iPhone

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
