According to macrumors via gearlive– “Apple has included new Core Location features that might suggest that turn-by-turn GPS could become a reality. Core Location can reportedly track your direction and the speed at which you are traveling.
Along with the new firmware, Apple has also seeded a new version of the iPhone SDK but the new SDK can not be used to submit Apps to the current App Store. There have been earlier reports that Firmware 2.0.1 had been spotted in the wild, but a 2.1 upgrade would presumably introduce more than just bug fixes.
Besides Core Location speed and heading additions, Apple has also included early Push Notifications APIs that allows applications to process notifications in the background. Apple promised this feature by September.”
All I can say is THANK GOD! After installing 2.0 on my old iPhone I have had nothing but trouble AND my NEW iPhone, purchased yesterday, keeps restarting for no reason and acting flakier and flakier…..I hope this update comes quick!!!!

Walt Mossberg has posted a very long MobileMe review along with an accompanying video HERE.
Along with the rest of us, he is having problems with MobileMe.
“Unfortunately, after a week of intense testing of the service, I can’t recommend it, at least not in its current state. It’s a great idea, but, as of now, MobileMe has too many flaws to keep its promises.”
It is becoming VERY frustrating and extremely Un-Apple like, to release software that is so flaky that you never know from day to day what it will do or even if it will work.
Come on Apple you are better than that. I hope you haven’t become Applsoft!!!

According to macsimumnews –
“AT&T has developed a software trick that will allow iPhones to recognize voice commands without the need for specialized voice recognition software.”
There is a video describing how it works – I can’t wait until this comes out, very handy and very cool.
