Contact search finally added to iPhone in iPhone 2.0 update

Nearly a year after its release, the iPhone is finally getting a feature every mobile phone already has – the ability to search contacts. The no-brainer missing feature was the number one item in my iPhone wish list story for MSNBC (iWish: iPhone updates we’d like to see – Our top 25 suggestions for making the super-slick device even better.)

From the iPhone webpage, in Apple’s own words:

If you have a lot of contacts, use the search feature to quickly find specific names.


At this rate, does that mean we won’t see the second wish list item (a feature found on every other smartphone): Copy and paste?


Boing Boing begins serialization of The Deal, by Joe Hutsko

I’m overjoyed by my friend (and one-time WIRED editor) Mark Frauenfelder’s decision to serialize my first novel, The Deal, on his web site, Boing Boing. Thank you, my friend!

Pre-order the new trade paperback edition of The Deal and I’ll sign and inscribe with words of your choosing.

From Mark’s post:

“My friend Joe Hutsko contacted me a few weeks back with the intriguing offer to serialize his novel, The Deal, on Boing Boing. I jumped at the chance.

I read The Deal when it first came out in 1999 and loved the thrilling story about a Apple-like company’s undertaking to create an iPhone-like device. It seems fitting to offer the first chapter of The Deal on the weekend before iPhone 2.0 is to be released.

We’ll post a new chapter of The Deal every Friday.”
