Apple announced updated software for the iPhone today as well. The new software update allows iPhone users to find their location on the Maps application using nearby hotspots or cellular towers. Other updates allow you to text message several people at the same time, customize the home screen and updates the iPhone for watching movies rented via iTunes.

"iPhone doesn't stand still -- we're making it better and better all the time," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We've delighted millions of users with this revolutionary and magical product and it's great to share these improvements with them."

Another interesting feature is the ability to create web clips on the iPhone, which are basically like bookmarks on the home page of the iPhone which take you to your favorite websites when pressed. The 1.1.3 update is delivered via iTunes and is available now free of charge.

Apple also announced a software update for the iPod Touch. Unlike the update for the iPhone, the iPod Touch software update carries a price of $19.99. I can’t imagine iPod touch owners being happy about having to pay $20 to get the latest software. Newly purchased iPod Touch devices will ship with the latest software installed.

The software update adds five new applications to the iPod Touch including Mail, Maps, Stocks, Weather, and Notes. This update basically makes the Touch an iPhone without calling capabilities. The update also allows Touch owners to rent movies via iTunes.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
