Good news, everyone! Maybe. There apparently is a soak test going out for the Motorola Atrix 2 this afternoon. Is it the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update? Dunno, and Motorola's site still just says "Further plans coming soon." We'll keep our fingers crossed, though.
Here's the text of the message:
Thanks for signing up for the Atrix 2 software test. Our apologies for the delay in starting this test! The software will begin to be pushed out later this afternoon; however, it may take several hours for all targeted devices to receive the update.
We're eager to hear your feedback. Please share your experience on the private community provided, and via the survey I will send out after you've had some time to work with the software.
To ensure we hear you, please follow these guidelines:
- Please post all your feedback in our private community (link below). This also where you'll find help during the soak.
- Please do not call or contact Motorola, AT&T or your carrier support for help during the soak. Those teams are not yet ready to support this software.
- I'm not able to check private messages on the forums during soaks, so if you need immediate help that's not a good route to take. Post in the community instead.
- If you have any problems accessing the private community, please click here for help.
- Please do not post questions publicly, on our site or elsewhere.
Please start your visit to the private community here. You'll find additional important information in the Welcome message as soon as you sign in. (Note that you will not be able to post in the public communities during the soak test.)
Thanks so much for your participation! We really appreciate your time and insights.
Keep your ears to the ground, folks.

LinkedIn has announced on its blog that it?s launched LinkedIn for iPad, which joins its suite of mobile versions of the service, including the iPhone version. The blog says that the new iPad app was developed with the intention of providing an easy link to the essential information that the user requires during the day. In fact, LinkedIn has actually designed the app around the morning and evening hours, which is when, it has learned, LinkedIn members are most likely to use their iPads. They refer to this as ?Coffee & Couch? behavior, and it has inspired them to develop an app that should make every professional feel like they have their own mini, iPad-shaped personal assistant. Basically, on the one screen you should have the most important information that you might need during the day, such as your meeting schedule, trending news in your chosen industry or profession, as well as updates from your co-workers such as what they are liking and commenting on. The calendar feature looks particularly impressive, syncing up with the iPad calendar to put LinkedIn profile data about the people attending your meeting instantly at your fingertips. This excellent new feature has also been added to the iPhone app. Currently the app is only available in English, but LinkedIn says that localized versions are on the way.

Yesterday Apple announced its revolutionary iCloud service at its WWDC keynote, and today sees the start of the iCloud era, with the release this morning of iTunes 10.3., which is rolling out worldwide right now. MacRumors reports that iTunes 10.3 introduces the iTunes in the Cloud beta, and that a subsequent iTunes update, 10.5, which is due in later in the year, will have full support for iCloud and iOS 5.
As announced by Apple yesterday and predicted by Apple pundits for months, iCloud is a set of cloud services designed to work seamlessly with apps on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC, automatically and wirelessly storing your content in iCloud and automatically and wirelessly pushing it to all your devices. When anything changes on one of your devices, all of your devices are wirelessly updated almost instantly.
?Today it is a real hassle and very frustrating to keep all your information and content up-to-date across all your devices,? said Steve Jobs, Apple?s CEO. ?iCloud keeps your important information and content up to date across all your devices. All of this happens automatically and wirelessly, and because it?s integrated into our apps you don?t even need to think about it?it all just works.?
After downloading iTunes 10.3 today, you?ll find that any music that you buy in iTunes will appear automatically on all your devices, and you?ll also be able to try out several iCloud features right now as part of iTunes in the Cloud beta, including Automatic Downloads and Download Previous Purchases. Automatic Downloads enables you to purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices, and Download Previous Purchases enables you to download past iTunes purchases whenever and wherever you want via the new ?Purchased? option in the App Store.
iTunes 10.3 also adds Books to the iTunes store, which, once purchased, can be automatically downloaded to iBooks on your iOS devices.
