Quicker backups on iTunes 8.0

Tonight I finally had a chance to sit down and connect my iPhone to iTunes and back it up. Wow is all I can say. Back ups went from around 90 minutes down to around 10! Still kinda lengthy, but much better compared to what it’s been. Hopefully iPhone OS 2.1 further reduces the backup times. Ontop of the shorter backups, the “dramatically improved battery life” has me excited. I’d like to get back to living each day without planning my next move based on where there’s an outlet.
