Went down to the Gamestop last night and hung around for the midnight release of Star Wars The Force Unleashed. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the iPhone version was out as well. I am about half way through the iPhone version and I just started on the Xbox 360 version. I will post a nice review of the iPhone version soon with plenty o pics and what not. Sound off in the comments if you have any questions before taking the $9.99 plunge.

Its finally here the long awaited update that is supposed to silence all the complaints (well maybe not all), and make the iPhone a bit more stable. Its seems like the implementation of 3rd party apps cause quite a ruckus for Apple. Add that to people having issues with dropped calls and 3G signal problems, they had a lot on thier hands to fix. So has 2.1 helped you out? So far so good for me, but only time will tell of the update does what good ol Stevey said it would do. Let me know your thoughts.
10:00am Pacific time Apple will be hosting their “Lets Rock” event. From numerous sources on the Internets, looks like Apple will be announcing new iPods, iTunes 8.0, and maybe the 2.1 software for iPhone/iPod Touch. Rumors have been circulating saying that the 2.1 software will have some kind of “secret” features added. My opinion is that’s just wishful thinking. Heck I’ve been waiting for MMS and cut/paste since the first update of the first gen iPhone. So I wont be holding my breath for any ground breaking features this time around. I do hope however they fix all the 3G, connection, apps crashing issues people are having, because I am tired of hearing about it everyday. I must be one of the luck ones, because my iPhone has been a champ, I have had slight keyboard lag, and a couple apps crash, but I blame that on the apps not necessarily the iPhone. Let the count down begin! I’ll update my twitter account as the day event progresses.
Engadget has posted some rather juicy news about the HTC Touch Pro coming to AT&T. There was a cached page which pretty much spilled the beans for AT&T on the new “Fuze” as the Pro is being called on the carrier’s network. I am very eager to get a hold of this bad boy and give it a test run. Will it be able to de-thrown my iPhone? Only time will tell, and time needs to hurry up and go by so I can get this gem in my hands ASAP!
