iPhone OS 3.0 now out and ready to download
Took me some time to update my iPhone 3G after downloading the new iPhone OS 3.0 because the verification servers are down or unavailable (obviously due to the millions of iPhone owners checking in).
The update is about 250MB which took some time to completely download. With the number of new features and applications included in version 3.0, I got a couple of favorites that I found really useful.
One is the Spotlight-like search that goes thru all of your data (calendar, email, SMS, notes, etc) and shows your keyword-matched results.
The other is Internet Tethering that allows you to share internet (via USB or Bluetooth) on your iPhone to your laptop or PC (can be found at Settings -> General -> Network -> Internet Tethering).
The Cut, Copy and Paste is also nice as well as the ability to sign in to your YouTube account to access your favorites and subscriptions.
