The FREE iPhone 3.0 Update!

As you may know, Apple released it's
3.0 firmware update just two days ago. The new features not only please
the millions of current iPhone customers, but disarm the opposition by
taking most of the last valid arguments AGAINST owning an iPhone they have
left! In all seriousness, the reviews have been very positive over the
new features which include an improved calendar, enhanced stock application
and the addition of a voice recorder (one of my personal favorites). Below
is a condensed list of major additions, improvements and changes reported
on the Apple

  • Cut / Copy / Paste: Quickly and
    easily cut, copy and paste text from application to application. Select
    entire blocks of text or images from the web, too.
  • Landscape Keyboard: Rotate iPhone
    to use the larger keyboard in Mail, Messages, Notes and Safari.
  • MMS: Send MMS messages that include
    audio, photos, contact info and video taken straight from your phone.
  • Spotlight Search: In one place,
    find anything on your phone. Type in anything to see results for photos,
    email, contacts, calendar entries etc.
  • Voice Memos: Record anything
    on the go. Voice memos work with both the built-in iPhone microphone or
    with the mic on your headset.
  • Improved Calendar: Create meetings
    via Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and subscribe to calendars with new CalDAV
  • iTunes Purchases: Download movies,
    TV shows, music videos and audiobooks from the iTunes store straight from
    your phone.
  • Enhanced Stocks: Get more at-a-glance
    information and new charts when turning the phone to landscape mode.
    • Safari Improvements: Enjoy faster
      performance, autofill login credentials and more.
    • Internet Tethering: Share your
      internet connection with your laptop through Bluetooth or USB.
    • Sync Notes: Sync all the notes
      you writ eon your iPhone back to your Mac or PC.
    • Shake to Shuffle: Give iPhone
      a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your library.
    • Find My iPhone: Using MobileMe,
      find your iPhone if you lose it and protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.

The update is free for all iPhone users,
but will cost $9.95 for the iPod Touch. Just another reason to make the
upgrade to the iPhone now that the 3Gs
is out and the 3G
is only $99!
