Tons of updates leaking out today for Apple products.

A new version of iTunes came out last night, though if I just went to my iTunes it told me there wasn't one. Here's the link to the Windows version if you need it...

That adds the "Applications" stuff. Though again, you have to go into the iTunes options and select to have Apps appear and then I had to click on Applications in iTunes after that and select to "get more Apps" or something before I could browse them.

Lots of free ones that are neat, especially the AIM one, and a whole lot of $10 ones like Super Monkey Ball.

And if you're really impatient like me, you can even get the new iPhone firmware from here:

Make sure you back up your iPhone first!!!!!!!! And realize that this may not be the final release, but considering this just showed up on Apple's servers today and they are supposed to officially release the firmware today or tomorrow I wouldn't be shocked if this is it. And this doesn't work for the Touch so don't try it. Read that thread for instructions on installing if you are nuts like me.

I was able to install it without a problem and am really liking a lot of the new options.

Also the whole MobileMe thing is launching today too, as well as an update to Apple TV that allows the use of an iPod Touch or iPhone as a remote control.

I just got a Touch last Sunday, so I'm eagerly anticipating the official 2.0 firmware release. I don't even mind paying 10 bucks.

I was going to get an iPhone 3G, but I'm an existing AT&T non-iPhone customer who is not currently eligible for an upgrade, so I'm hosed. The Touch will make a nice stop-gap, especially since I got a 16GB for $100. I used the Apple Education discount to buy my mother-in-law a new Macbook for her birthday, which got me a $299 rebate. Score!

I wish Apple would release a barebones, music-only version of iTunes instead of adding new functionality to it. I love the program, but my crappy computer just can't handle it and Firefox at the same time. I know I could just use one of the older versions (in fact I use version 4.7 to organize pdf's at work), but I do like some of the music related features that have come out since then.

a friend with an iphone said that AOLradio lets you listen to any CBS radio station.

man, I would have killed for that when I was in college. I could have listented to Stern on KXRK or WYSP while in Indiana.

Ugh, I feel like a retard. Been trying for hours to get Exchange to work with this new update and I can't get it done. Doesn't matter if I use SSL, or even turn it off completely, I can't get anything to sync and don't get error messages on the phone. Just crappy 500 ones in the IIS log.

I've got remote wireless access enabled for the exchange accounts, I can get to just fine on a PC, and I've tried a million combinations of ways of typing the server name, username and such into the phone.

What the hell am I missing?
