DocĀ² 3.0: iPhone word processing with Google Docs, iDisk goodness

When it comes to using an iPhone as a word processor, I'm probably not the person you want to talk to. After all, I've never been a fan of writing on handheld devices -- I can type much faster on a regular computer keyboard than I can tap words into my iPhone with a couple of fingers. However, fr...

Mellel 2.2 adds better citation support

Since switching to an Intel Mac right after Macworld 2006 I've been trying to move away from Microsoft Word on my system, both because I don't like running a PPC app, and because I wanted to escape from Word itself, which I've often found to be ridiculously frustrating (two words: widows and orphans...
