The IceCube Neutrino Observatory began full data-taking operations in May of 2011. During the previous years of construction, data-taking was performed with each growing stage of the detector. In these proceedings we review the most recent all-sky searches for point sources of neutrinos, based on data taken between 2008 and 2010 when IceCube was operated in its 40-string and 59-string configurations. Based on better than expected performance with the partial detectors, operation of the full IceCube detector is well on track to reach the sensitivity goals for detecting high energy astrophysical neutrinos.
