With the new option to sync my devices to iCloud instead of my computer, it sounded like a great idea. The problem was, after a couple days of being synced to the “cloud”, all my files in Keynote, Pages & Numbers disappeared on all my devices. I have my iPad, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S all syncing and it was awesome to watch my files push in to my devices and cross sync between them the first time. When I opened Pages a few days later and all the files vanished. I was not happy. I have a couple major documents on there and I was trying to remember where I might have backed them up. I know I had emailed myself some files just incase something happened but I was having trouble finding them in my email and I know it wasn’t all my files from all devices from all three apps.

Apple has posted the keynote for the iPad 2 Event. All 71 minutes and 21 seconds is viewable below. So, grab some popcorn and M&M’s (seriously guys, if you haven’t had M&M’s in your popcorn you are missing out), sit back and enjoy the keynote!
Apple has finally posted the video of yesterday’s WWDC Keynote. The video is available in low, medium and high quality and is around a hour and 52 minutes long. It is not available in iTunes quite yet but I’m sure it will be soon. You can find the video on Apple’s website.
Apple has posted the Keynote from today’s Firmware 4.0 Event. “Watch Apple CEO Steve Jobs give a sneak peek into the future of the iPhone OS.”
View the Keynote HERE on Apple’s website.
Apple has finally opened what appears to be an official YouTube Channel. This means we can now embed any video that Apple release there, here on AIS. Here is the iPad video from Apple’s website and that was played at the end of the Keynote and the entire Keynote split into 4 videos:
Apple – iPad – Introducing the iPad
Every year someone creates a shorten version of the WWDC keynote hitting on the main topics. This year we get the Keynote in 3 minutes. Last year, we had the Keynote in 60 seconds! So, for those of you who don’t want to watch the entire 2 hour, 21 minute and 21 second Keynote on Apple’s website…here is a shortened version.
New Poll – Were you disappointed with the lack of iPhone or iPod Touch news during the Macworld 2009 Keynote?
Time for a new poll. The last poll was – Will you unlock your iPhone 3G using the software unlock yellowsn0w? Below are the results based on when we added the poll a little less than a week ago.
* Yes. (33%, 437 Votes)
* No. (23%, 301 Votes)
* I’m not sure yet. (14%, 192 Votes)
* I will unlock my iPhone 3G using a different method. (3%, 41 Votes)
* I don’t have an iPhone 3G. (27%, 355 Votes)
Total Voters: 1,326
We are torn on this one! Doug has installed and used yellowsn0w…I have not. I honestly do not have an exact reason for why I have not installed yellowsn0w mostly because I just do not have a need to. Doug, being the techy that he is, has installed yellosn0w. Though, he has had a few issues with it affecting his connectivity to AT&T. So, I think I will hold off for a while! :) You can still vote on this Poll in our Poll Archive page. You can also vote/view all the past polls on the Poll Archive page as well. Below is the new poll.
Looks like this will be the last time we’ll be doing this :( This is Apple’s last time at Macworld. Today’s iPhone rumors include iPhone nanos, larger storage, cellular downloads for iTunes, larger iPod Touch (Tablet), etc… We’ll find out soon enough!
Keep refreshing for the latest info!

Ok, I can’t take it any more! As much as I love writing about update and new apps….I just have to write something about iPhone 3G and the announcements Apple made yesterday during the Keynote at WWDC!!
Doug has been doing a great job of writing about the new features of the iPhone 3G, which countries it will be released in, jailbreaking the iPhone 3G, Apple/AT&T’s new activation policy, iPhone 3G and GPS, the price of the iPhone 3G, what is going to happen with the iPod Touch…not to mention photos of the iPhone 3G, the Keynote Video, the Keynote being available on iTunes, the Keynote in 60 seconds and the new iPhone 3G commercial!
