Updates for the iPhone 3G and iTunes 8

This week saw two updates from Apple; update 2.1 for the iPhone was released and a fix for iTunes 8 came out.

The iPhone update fixes phone reception issues, backup speed and improves battery life. You must have iTunes 8 installed in order to get the update.

And that's where the problem comes in. iTunes 8 installed a buggy USB driver that caused blue screen errors on PCs. From what I've heard, the problem cannot be resolved just by installing the new version over the old. The existing version must be uninstalled before the new, updated version is installed.

Sounds a bit laborious, however I'm certain many believe it's worth the trouble. Anyone for a cup of calming, relaxing iTunes Tea? (grin)
