Boy Genius Report bring news that iPhone 4S pre-orders numbers have reached over one million in the first 24 hours of pre-orders being available, a pretty impressive number all by itself, but all the more impressive when you take into account that the iPhone 4S' predecessor, the iPhone 4, had just 600,000 in a single day. Looks like many pundits will be eating their words about the iPhone 4S being a lacklustre upgrade very shortly.
News this morning says that Sony is looking to produce a movie based on the official Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson (which has also had its release date moved up to October 24th). According to reports, Sony are supposedly in the stages of acquiring the rights to the movie — and The Mac Observer says they already have a producer on board.
Sparrow 1.4, the excellent Mail client for the Mac, has been released to the public with two new features: CloudApp integration for attachments, and pull-to-refresh. Pull-to-refresh needs no introduction if you've ever used Twitter on the iPhone, but CloudApp integration for attachments is something we haven't seen before; seems like a good way to upload your potentially sensitive files to a third party, but to an extent, you're already doing that if you use anything other that self-hosted email anyway.
Speaking of Mail, Macworld has a nice tip on copying the Mail autocomplete database to a new Mac. The autocomplete feature when you start to type a new address in an email is a pretty big timesaver, so I can see why some people would like to keep that around.
