SMS Message Archive Utility

If you want to save your SMS messages from your iPhone, there's now a free way to do it. If you're on a Mac, that is; I'm not aware of any ways to do it on a PC. But, Syphone by Micromat will backup, import and export any SMS threaded conversations that you want. And it will display conversations in threaded glory as well. It's a teensy download, under 1 MB, but it's available here.

Google Docs Now Supports iPhone, Other Mobile Devices. Kinda Sorta

We are one step closer to editing word documents on our iPhones today. Google is now offering a mobile format of Google docs, viewable on mobile devices.

But the tables are turned as the subjects plug their own ventures rather than focus soley on iPhone and how it impacst their lives. A commercial within a commercial?

Kristin Sloan, the sole female user in this trio, is the editor and founder of TheWinger.com - a site devoted to ballet dancing. Several seconds into the commercial she drops off the subject of iPhone and immediately draws attention to her site. Nice touch, very subtle.

Breaking: Apple Announces iPhone SDK, Opens Platform for Software Developers! *faints*

Charge the defibrillators, my heart just stopped. None other than Steve Jobs himself has officially announced that Apple will indeed open iPhone to native software development, and provide an SDK next February. Apparently plans were in the works to open the platform to developers all along (told you so) but Apple still hasn't figured a non-invasive procedure for allowing applications to run in OSX.

So, the good news is there is a God. The bad news is it's Steve Jobs.

Read his excellency's blessed scrawl after the break. Or go here to see the official announcement on Apple.com
