Get iPhone 3.0 OS Beta Today! Download the iPhone 3.0 Software

Many of us are anxiously awaiting the release of the iPhone 3.0 Software, but if you just can’t wait to get your hands on the iPhone 3.0 OS, you can download it today to begin testing and playing with it if you’d like. All you have to do is register to join the iPhone developer program. So what’s the catch? No catch really, other than the fee to join the program – $99 for the Standard Program.

Joining the Standard Program allows you to develop applications that can be sold in the AppStore. You could probably make that $99 back quickly and easily if you built an application that people liked.

So if you don’t think you can wait until summer for Copy & Paste functionality, Push functionality, the new Spotlight Search functionality, join the Apple iPhone Developer Program today so that you can download and start testing the iPhone OS 3.0 Software.

The Two Things That Geeks Want Most

There is no question about it, there are two things out there that high on the list of demands for features to be added to things we use everyday.

  1. Copy & Paste Support for the iPhone
    This is apparently coming with the release of the iPhone 3.0 software. I’ll believe it when I see it! This has been a feature that has been being requested since the first iPhone was bought, and it sounds like it actually might become a reality in the near future.
  2. HTML Signatures in Gmail
    Lets face it… we all use Gmail, and we all use many of the great features that are offered in Gmail Labs, but the thing that is absolutely requested more than any other feature has got to be the request for HTML signatures in Gmail. As soon as HTML signatures are offered, I wouldn’t be surprised if sales and usage of Microsoft Outlook dropped by half. HTML signatures are the one thing that email clients offer that google has unfortunately not started to offer inside of Gmail yet.

It’s funny some of the most trivial things like Copy & Paste and HTML Signatures are also 2 of the things that 2 of the biggest tech companies have failed to offer for a long time. What do you think? Does anyone have a guess on an ETA for HTML Signatures?
