    In iOS 4.0 if you receive an email that says “tomorrow night” Apple has now made it easy as pie to create an event for that “tomorrow night” engagement. I am guessing that a “tomorrow afternoon” or “tomorrow morning” will result in the same prompt.

    When clicking on the actionable link, a popup titled “Create Event” appears. This results in a calendar entry for the next night beginning at 8:00pm.

    It’s the small things like this that make Apple products stand out from the pack.

    Haven't these Leopard-like data detectors been there ever since the first beta of iOS4?

    Sorta, If you send an email in the web version of gmail that says "the attached document" but fail to attach anything Gmail will prompt you to attach something.

    email is getting smarter...

    That is awesome! And I agree, it is not one huge thing that makes Apple superior, it is a hundred little ones

    btw, other inputs are working as well.

    just tried:

    "Tomorrow at Noon" - 12:00pm
    "Tomorrow afternoon" - starts at 3:00pm

    This is pretty awesome stuff.

    Previous to 4.0 data detectors didn't work too well for addresses etc, maybe due to English format (post code, not zip etc)
    This is cool though

    You can set it on a repeat schedule or you can simply copy and paste once you get into iCal or Outlook on your computer.

    That is just like MacOSX, great to see that added for the iPhone too.
