Notes in iPhone .

I received the following email from Joe Bella and asked him if I could post it.

I don't know if this is something that everyone else has noticed already - it may not mean anything, but I noticed that the icon for "Notes" in the upcoming Leopard mail is pretty much identical to the "Notes" icon on the iphone. If they lead to the same functionality, that means that any notes you take can be kept on an IMAP server. The interesting thing to me here is that if this is true.. then I can take notes on my computer via the Mail program, and they will automatically be transmitted onto my phone without having to sync and vice versa. You could think of a thousand things that you could do with this kind of setup. For example, how about the ability to have a "common" notepad between different people. My wife and I could really use this. Notes that she takes on it during the day will just show up on my phone.  Along with Leopard, Apple is supposed to release all sorts of collaboration tools. For example, an iCal server that will allow a group of users to share calendars. It's not a far stretch to envision a notes collaboration.

Anyway - more random speculation.  I've enclosed a picture of the two things side by side.



Nice find Joe. I have not seen anyone else mention this yet.
I guess this means my wife could update the grocery list while I am at the grocery store. And I am sure she will find many other ways to take advantage of this.

Most Phallic Looking Cell Tower Ever
Question: What does this have to do with iPhones?

Answer: This is a picture I took of the Cell tower where I live that my iPhone will be connecting to.  I am still surprised this was approved by the city.  I guess it is supposed to look like a hay silo â�� being it is here in Kansas.  But obviously it looks a lot like something else.  I am sure the person that designed this is still laughing about it getting approved.

About Tii:

Today in iOS (Formerly - Today in iPhone) - Tii - was the first Podcast dedicated to the iPhone. The Podcast launched in April 2007 and we have been producing new episodes about once a week for over seven years.  The podcast regularly gets between 25,000 and 30,000 unique downloads per episode. The show can also be found on Stitcher where it gets another 2,500 listens per episode.  The show and site are dedicated to the iPhone OS and any and all devices running the iPhone OS.  This includes News, Tips, Tricks, Apps, Accessories, Rumors, Jailbreaking, and anything else we feel fits with the iPhone OS universe.  The show is G-Rated and you will never hear a curse word on the show - so it is ok for your kids to listen.  We work hard to integrate listener Voicemail and email into each episode, this can be questions, tips, tricks, reviews and even rants.  

 

 

As of 6/10/2011 - I own Stock in Apple and hold a long position.  

 
As of 5/17/2014 - I also own Stock in Facebook, Tesla, Twitter and GTAT and hold a long position on all of them. 
 
 
 
 
 
App and Product Review Policy:
Full and Fair Disclosure is something we believe strongly in.  We do not take any money to do App reviews, we do accept free promocodes for Apps and free gear to review - but will always disclose if a promocode or a product was given for free. We openly welcome App reviews from our Audience including reviews by the developers (as long as they disclose they are the developer).  We do our best to vet reviews to make sure they are not coming from a PR company hired by a Developer.  We expect full and fair disclosure from our audience as well.  
 
 
Advertising with Tii:
Developers are welcome (encouraged) to advertise on the site and/or Podcast and we clearly state on the podcast when the show is being sponsored by anyone.  The banners at the right side of the site are sponsored by those in the banner.  To learn more about advertising opportunities click here.
