One of the ones I really like is called "Around Me" and it uses the GPS to tell you about restaurants, banks, coffee shops, and so on wherever you happen to be, and then will provide the map to get you there, even if it is only a 100 yards or so. Love it, love it.
    Exactly! I like being connected and having answers at the touch of my iPhone.

    If you had an iPhone, you two wouldn't have a problem

    Apple: Multitasking coming to the iPhone this summer

    The new iPhone software will pack in more than 100 new features, Jobs promised, including (besides multitasking) a unified email inbox, support for Apple's new iBookstore, a social gaming network, a series of interface enhancements (such as app folders and wallpapers for the home screen) and — yep, it was bound to happen — a new, Apple-controlled mobile ad framework, with Apple set to keep a generous 40 percent of future ad revenue for itself.

    Without further ado, then, let's get down to the nitty-gritty:

    Here's how it'll work: If you're running an app on the iPhone — anything from the core Mail app to, say, a game like Tap Tap Revenge — you just double-click the Home key to pull up a small window shade at the bottom of the screen, which can show four apps at a time (just swipe to scroll through more running apps). Tap an app in the new multitasking "dock" and you'll switch to the app, with the first app's state saved in the background.

    So, will all these apps actually be running in the background? Well, no (if they did, they'd slow iPhone performance to a crawl and eat up battery life, Jobs said). That said, Apple will be allowing a few selected processes to run in the background, including music, VOIP, and location-based apps.

    For example, Pandora will still play music while you're browsing on Safari (you can even pause Pandora or skip tracks using the iPhone's "lock" control bar), you'll be able to answer and maintain VOIP calls (think Skype and the like) while you're working in other apps, and location-aware apps like Loopt will be able to track your location in the background via cell-tower triangulation. (An icon will appear in the iPhone's top status bar to warn you if a background app is tracking your location; you'll also get to tweak a series of new location-based privacy settings).

    I tried the third generation iPhone last Saturday. For some reason we were not able to get VoiceOver to turn on. I did use DragonDictate with decent results. Because I have a bad case of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is difficult for me to open applications or navigate using the touch screen, etc. I am thinking I can use third party hardware (Accenda) for voice control. I am also considering trying a stylus. I have decided not to get the iPad. Therefore, I may end up with the iPod Touch but I really want a camera.

    Come on Steve, put in a camera now! I don't want to have to wait eight or nine months.
