It's free, and it directs you to the nearest banks, bars, coffee shops, gas stations, hospitals, hotels, movie theaters, parking, pharmacies, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, taxis, and theaters. Plus it gives you three-day weather and other features. It's amazingly easy to use.
Attention product developers at MacNally, Belkin, etc. For the love of all that is holy can someone please develop a foldable, portable external keyboard for both the iPhone and iPod touch. Am I the only one who has been dying for one of these to be out on the market? I know that MacNally had created a bluetooth external keyboard last year that never made it to the market due to the fact that it required a Bluetooth connection which was not available until this past week when the iPhone 3.0 was released.

Earlier this week Amazon launched an iPhone-friendly version of its website. When you go to Amazon.com in Safari on your iPhone or iPod Touch, it automatically gives you the iPhone version (and gives you the option of seeing the PC version, if you want). This is the whole Amazon site, not just the Kindle ebook area. If you do a search, you can, just like the desktop site, search any specific area of the site, or choose just to search the Kindle area.
