To begin using MMS, you’ll need to connect your phone to iTunes to receive an update. A dialog box should tell you the update is available, but if it doesn’t, you can always click on the “check for update” button on the panel to the left. When you’re done, you should have carrier version “AT&T 5.5″ running on iPhone version 3.1.

With the recent release of Firefox 3.5, Mozilla is already cranking away on the next version 3.7 New features include:
1. Embracing Glass: Toolbar and Tabs using Glass. Buttons translucent and slightly glossy to meld with the toolbar. Raised 3D lookachieve tactile “feel”.
2. Page Button: Connect the Page button to the left side of the tab area. Directly connected to the Page.
3. Tools/Bookmark Bar: Connecting the Tools button to the side of the window to emphasize the fact that it is used for customizing and changing the UI. Adding a button next to that to toggle the Bookmarks bar which is turned off by default.
If you’ve been tethered to your Mac since midnight, obsessively pressing the “Check for Update” button in iTunes, you can give it a rest. At least for a few hours. Engadget has deduced that today’s iPhone 3.0 update won’t get pushed out until around 1pm ET.
I love my iPhone, it’s a gadget that I can honestly say saves me time. Being a converted BlackBerry user, there’s a few things that I have missed though. The first of which is having the ability to Cut, Copy & Paste. While this seemed like a no-brainer function to have, up until this release it was impossible to do. The other limitation that drives me crazy about the current 2.0 software version is the inability to attach photos, video and contact info to SMS messages, another thing that the BlackBerry did very well.
Software Update 3.0
In typical Apple fashion, almost all of the shortcomings of the current iPhone software will be addressed in the new 3.0 software update, which will be available for download starting tomorrow June 17th. The update will be free for iPhone users, iTouch users will have to pay a one-time fee of around 10 bucks. Here are the highlights of the new 3.0 software release:
- Copy & Paste Support (finally!)
- Landscape Keyboard option when texting
- Photo, Video, Contact support for SMS texting
- Centralized search capability
- Record Voice Memos
- Improved Calendar with CalDAV support
- Buy movies, TV shows and Audiobooks from device
- Enhanced Stock Application
- Peer to Peer app support for gaming, etc.
- A bunch of other things
The primary thing that I don’t like about the upgrade is that they’re not offering Internet Tethering support in the US. This would allow you to hook your iPhone to your Laptop to browse the Internet. I’m sure that has something to do with the AT&T monopoly. I’m sure a not so legal workaround to this limitation will appear within time
How to Download the 3.0 Update (available 6/17):
1. Simply open up iTunes with your iPhone / iTouch attached.
2. Click on your device under the “Devices” left-hand menu.
3. Click the “Check for Update” button and follow the steps.
I’ve been messing around with the beta release of Fedora’s latest version 11.0 and found it to be one the fastest and polished operating systems I’ve ever used. It takes 20 seconds or less to load the entire operating system, from power on to log in – Let’s see Windows 7 do that.
The features are not bad either, most of what you would need to accomplish day-to-day tasks. Firefox 3.1, Eclipse IDE, etc.
With the move towards browser-based computing it’s only a matter of time before the lines between the operating system and browser begin to blur. Microsoft’s days of being the primary desktop OS will surely come to an end using their current pay-per-device model.
Google released version 2.0 of its Chrome browser today. For those of you not using Chrome you should give it a shot. It’s lightweight – not in lbs terms but in CPU and Memory allocation. The new 2.0 version is faster when browsing than any other browser today.
Chrome for the MAC and Linux is on its way as well!
