    After a few false starts and delays due to some minor bugs iOS 4.2 is finally ready for release.

    Apple - iOS 4.2 Software Update

    Pretty cool stuff, looks like AirPrint which was rumored to have been taken out of the new update is still there. Also included is the "Find my Phone" feature which was previously part of MobileMe.

    Most exciting thing is I finally get multitasking for my iPad :D 

    Despite the website update it's suppose to go live starting at 1pm EST.

    I hope to hell it fixes the crazy amount of crashes my iPod has been experiencing since upgrading to 4.1. Never had the problem with the 3.X series of IOS.

    I have one problem with that Find my Phone app. I'm sure it can be useful, but here's my question.
    Doesn't the lost phone have to be turned on in order to be found? And if so, if you've lost it somewhere turned on, by the time your device starts finding it, the phones battery would've gone dead. Thus, how can the system find the phone?

    It's suppose too along with the iPhone 3's, if it does not that's going to be a huge problem as Apple really dropped the ball on the last few iOS updates which really hindered the older iPhone's & iPods with a wide range of issues which left a lot of people understandably pissed.
