Yummy! It seems denser than before, but I'm not an expert at testing or seeing little differences. It certainly runs my apps faster!

Here's a pic. Apparently, the iMac camera takes a mirror image picture (like the left). You can't read the text! If I turn on effects "mirror" it will add in the image at the right, so things look a little normal. (never used my iMac's camera before)

Pic shows the "folderizing" in iOS 4, too. The two black images with little
blocks inside them. I love this new capability!

Here's a pic of the folderizing in use. (Of course, this worked on my iPhone 3G yesterday, too ... before I obsoleted it and replace it with the iPhone 4). It comes with iOS 4, which was just released.

Font sizes in mail, messages

David Pogue said in his review:

"Those over 40 can now bump up the type size for e-mail, notes, text messages and address book entries."

I upgraded my 3GS to iOS 4, but I don't see anywhere to do this. Does it only apply to iPhone 4? Anyone know anything about this? I wouldn't mind a larger font for MMS.

hmm.. email's always had this ability. but i don't see anywhere to change it in notes, text messages or the address book either. at least not on my iOS 4, 3gs. maybe in the iPhone 4.

How do you change the size in Mail? I didn't know you could do that? Just curious. Thanks!

The way to change text size is in settings/general/accessibility in case anyone else is interested. (I wrote to David Pogue and asked him how to do it. He wrote back within a couple of hours with the info. How cool is that?!)
