This is it TiPb nation, your last chance to guess the good for Apple's WWDC 2010 before the big show starts and we find out once and for all what Apple does to re-revolutionize the smartphone in 2010. What do you think we'll see?
(If you want to step up, drop your predictions in the comments as well so they're recorded for posterity -- and bragging rights)
As a user of Dataviz's Documents to Go product for years, I was ecstatic for the iPhone release and now even more so for the universal binary for iPad. Documents to Go is a mobile office productivity suite that allows you to create and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint formatted documents and file types on your iPad.
Let's first look at how we can access our documents, there are a few different ways. First, you can create documents on the iPad. Next, you can sync with your desktop (PC or Mac). You can install a free desktop sync tool. This allows you to pick a folder on your computer and sync those documents to the iPad, or use the built-in iTunes sync if that is your preference. Last but not least you can connect to a few different web services in the "cloud" and edit your documents and save it right back to the cloud. Documents to Go supports these services:
Public Disk (iDisk)
Syncing your documents to the cloud is truly fantastic and is something Apple's own iPad iWork suite does not offer beyond iWork.com.
While we wait, I figured it would be fun to crowd-source the awesome mind-power of the TiPb Nation to see if we could predict what the 4th generation iPhone would be called and when exactly it would be available for purchase. So check out the polls after the break and let's see just how close we can get.
I'm sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight (or the first leg of my flight rather, grrrr!) to San Francisco for WWDC 2010 and catching up on the latest, greatest, coolest, and craziest rumors to hit the web -- namely Safari 5, a new version of Xcode, and more.
Attention TiPb Nation -- due to travel and assorted craziness surrounding the Sunday night before the Monday morning WWDC 2010 (expected) iPhone HD/iPhone 4G introduction, we won't be able to do our usual iPad live! tomorrow night.
However, to make it up to you -- and to make sure we get to talk to you about whatever Apple reveals just as soon as inhumanly possible -- we're going to do a special edition podcast on Monday after the big reveal. We're not sure on timing yet, but it will be as early as possible.
Apologies for letting anyone down on Sunday night, but we'll make it up to you on Monday.
SquareTrade has sent us a little tip announcing its new coverage rates for the iPhone 3GS. As any iPhone owner knows, when you drop your phone, your heart may momentarily stop. We all know most warranties also don't cover drops and spills. This is where SquareTrade steps in. For only $99 you'll receive 2 full years of coverage. Compare that to AT&T's rumored new iPhone protection plan, and you've got yourself a deal with SquareTrade.
SquareTrade had this to say about their warranty pricing compared to AT&T's:
You've all read about our huge iPhone HD/iPhone 4G give-away, haven't you? You remember the part where store.imore.com is helping to pass the time until Apple actually ships the new hawt thing by giving away a great accessory every week?
Well, this week we're giving away a Jawbone ICON Bluetooth headset. It's top of the line folks (check out the video after the break!), and all you have to do to enter is head on over to our iPhone Contest Forum and make sure you enter your video link, comment on a video link, or comment on what you expect or think about the up coming, next generation iPhone.
Oh, and if you start a new, original iPhone HD/iPhone 4G-related thread, it counts as TWO entries. Boom.
