Friday afternoon I called the house and got my then 13 year old son. He turned 14 a few days later. Dad, the WiFi sucks. I'm trying to download an update to War Thunder and it's taking almost an hour. He was right, the WiFi adapter on his PC is garbage. The access point is… Read more I can’t really get angry at him for solving a problem
My iPhone 6 arrived in the mail, a few calls later it was activated and my old Note II became a paperweight. It’s not that I dislike Android or Samsung products, it’s just that my latent Phone Curse™ kicked in. After 2 years it was time to retire the old one. The old phone was… Read more Good product integration is important
Parodies about Cupertino are fun, thanks to the Verge for posting this link.
I’m beginning to believe my subconscious has developed super powers. I am jonesing for a new smart phone that works better than my antiquated iPhone 3G. Given the age of my phone that’s not a tall order. To help me in that direction, my subconscious has disabled the ability of my phone to vibrate when… Read more My subconscious at work?
Any consumer subscription service is about getting what you pay for. 4 bars, a 3G icon, and no Internet connectivity is not acceptable. What good is it to have a grandfathered-in data plan from AT&T if their data network is unavailable half the time? I usually can’t use my phone in Penn Station at all.… Read more Hello? AT&T? Can you hear me now?
Do I get an Android phone or an iPhone 4? I’m in no rush to get a new phone but I do periodically suffer from phone envy. I am a fan of easy-to-use technology. I currently own an iPhone 3G with iOS 4.0.1 installed. My phone has been jailbroken not because I have a “SOFTWARE… Read more Android or iPhone 4?
Within days of my putting on iOS 4.0.1 onto my iPhone 3G, the phone started to crawl. Playing music was painful and using applications became a joke. For example doing anything with Camera+ (a very cool photo app BTW) would take minutes when it used to take seconds. Downgrading to 3.1.3 caused my apps to… Read more iPhone 3G slowness
Not really news, but nice to see that Consumer Reports can send people the straight scoop. This seems to put to rest the myth of this being a software glitch. I still plan on getting one. I was going to get the bumper anyways and it’s still an awesome phone despite the antenna flaw.
After I read this article on Gizmodo (helpfully called “How To: Jailbreak Any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad”) I figured what the heck and did the deed. The Spirit Jailbreak Tool is as fire and forget as it gets. I backed up my iPhone, made sure I could restore it to its pristine Apple condition… Read more Google Voice on the iPhone is slick
I like playing with technology and I received an invite to Google Voice. I use an iPhone 3G so the integration is limited to a HTML5 web page running in Safari. The integration is not bad at all and the web page on my iPhone is very functional.
