    The GM and today's release are exactly the same so that's not it.

    That's not entirely true. At least on the iPhone3G the md5sums don't match up and the file size is actually a few KB smaller than the GM. Though I don't know what small things would have changed, especially since the build numbers match up.

    BTW, I'm not able to get iBooks to install on my 3G. Says I can learn more about the iPad though.:confused:

    Absolutely. Not a whole book, but if I have some time to kill I'll knock out a chapter or two. That's the nice thing about wirelessly syncing bookmarks, you can read on whatever is convenient.

    Try redownloading iTunes.

    I had the developer's early release but that version didn't seem to work. I redownloaded iTunes and iBooks downloaded properly and show up as universal app instead of an iPad app.

    No Winnie-the-Pooh?

    I downloaded and installed iBooks for the iPhone after I had gotten through updating my 3GS and was surprised to see no Winnie-the-Pooh. I've got that on both iPads, and I thought it was automatically part of the iBooks app? I have two books that I have purchased so am a little hesitant to delete the app and reinstall it. Advice?
