I found Jott while checking into Google’s new speech recognition app and its not bad.
Since we carry our iPhones (and sometimes iPods) with us no matter where we go, why not carry a few documents as well? I choose three application that are useful for using your iPhone as a remote storage device. If there is one I missed that offers unique functionality, please let me know.
MotionX is not like other gps loggers I have reviewed for biking or running, but I I thought I would have a look at it anyway. Sweeeett looking app!
I was not going to blog about this, but recently I saw a post on how Walmart now has an iPhone version of their site. I have a friend visiting from the UK, and instead of renting a bike for a few days, I did some research and found it cheaper to buy a new one.

The longer you hold down, the more armies per turn are used to speed up game play.
I was at the T-Mobile store checking out the G1. As I was experimenting, and comparing my iPhone next to the G1, someone came up and asked me; ’should I get this or the iPhone?’

However, I get a bit of engine noise on my iphone when its plugged into the 12v socket. This is not uncommon, but annoying never the less.
