iPhone 2.2.1 Rumors: Push Notifications and Notes Sync?

MacRumors has linked up RussianiPhone.ru which claims to have gotten a pre-release look at the upcoming first beta for 2.2.1, which is said to include both the long-delayed Push Notification Service and something Mike first discovered way back with Mac OS X Leopard's release: Notes sync.

Rightly, they point out how easy to fake something like this is, and we won't know anything for certain until a public beta is actually made available for 2.2.1 (or 2.3, Apple hasn't done minor point bumps for the 2.x architecture yet, so why now?)

But even if it's not real, just how desperate have we become for these long overdue, or mind-boggling-ly missing features that we'll fall all over even fake news about them?

Battered consumer syndrome much?
