iPhone 3.0

I’ve downloaded the new, free, iPhone 3.0 OS upgrade via iTunes. It was all automatic. It’s still going through the process of completing the upgrade. The download time was fairly small but during the installation it completes a complete backup of the iPhone software before the install and then again after the first pass ay synchronizing after the install. The backup operations take a while.

So far, it’s all working and looking good. I’m eager to try out how it behaves with this new operating system software. The folks over at TUAW wrote a nice article explaining what’s new about iPhone OS 3.0. It can be found here.

The install completed without complications. I’ve already used the “copy-paste” ability to modify some text on my Notes app. The initial backup operations seemed to take the longest. Download of the 3.0 software took about 5 minutes. Install and synchronization took a whole lot longer.

Melissa sent me a link to this video clip. It’s amazing how this person’s experience and insight into mental illness is presented. Early in her talk, I started to realize and reflect on the unique concepts she was explaining.

This is a video presentation where Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain scientist, shares what it was like to experience her own stroke.

I’ve been using this picture for wallpaper on my iPhone.

It just makes me laugh.
