I have been quite quiet for a while, and now I am only briefly back with a somewhat off topic note: Science Apps for the iPhone. Macresearch already found a few of these, as described in their two blogposts. I quickly skimmed through the list of apps today, and found indeed some interesting stuff. One which will be particularly useful for me is VoiceNotes, which makes the iPhone a voice recorder (it also has some commercial but affordable competitors which I have not tested yet). Very useful to me, up to now I used to speak on my answering machine – which forwarded the messages as emails to my inbox – when some idea comes to me during driving to or from work… which happens rather frequently (both, the commuting and the voice recording;-) I am looking forward to see more applications soon.
