iOS 5.0.1 is Now Available, Plugin and Launch iTunes to Download

I am downloading iOS 5.0.1, which I hope will alleviate the low battery life issues that I have experienced since getting the iPhone 4S. I will report back after the update. UPDATE: Install went flawlessly after downloading 800+ MB update. Let’s see if I can go more than a day and a half to twoContinue reading “iOS 5.0.1 is Now Available, Plugin and Launch iTunes to Download”

Facetime, Apple’s Slick Teleconferencing Software, is for Cats, Too

In the image to the left, Miao and I are talking with Y with Apple’s Facetime technology. Y is visiting her family in Taiwan, so we are relying on Apple’s Facetime on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and iOS 5 to talk face-to-face. Facetime is integrated into the new device and computer operating systems so thatContinue reading “Facetime, Apple’s Slick Teleconferencing Software, is for Cats, Too”

Zagg Invisible Shield Dry and Wrapsol Ultra Are Garbage

Zagg’s Invisible Shield Dry and Wrapsol Ultra are equally garbage. I would recommend you not waste your money on these products. Between difficulty applying the products to the iPhone 4S combined with the impossibility of removing air bubbles (even after waiting 24 hours), these products significantly degrade your visual experience on the iPhone 4S inContinue reading “Zagg Invisible Shield Dry and Wrapsol Ultra Are Garbage”

iPhone 4S Now Activated, Took About 4 Hours

My iPhone 4S finally activated during dinner–thank the maker! I am restoring my iPhone backup now. I am certainly more happy with the feel and weight of the iPhone 4S as compared to the iPhone 3GS. I do like playing games on my iPhone, and I think that the feel of the iPhone 4S willContinue reading “iPhone 4S Now Activated, Took About 4 Hours”

iPhone 4S Activation Woes

Nothing inspires confidence in your wireless carrier like the inability to activate a new phone. I received my iPhone 4S earlier today, but I still cannot activate it. The process that claims to “take up to three minutes” is actually much longer than that. I suppose that I can play with my two year oldContinue reading “iPhone 4S Activation Woes”

iPhone 4S Preorders Begin on October 7, Available on October 14

I am looking forward to the iPhone 4S platform refresh. Preorders begin on October 7, and the new iPhone should be available on October 14. Since my two year old iPhone 3GS is falling apart (the case is cracked around the USB port and the mute switch), I am eyeing an upgrade. I use myContinue reading “iPhone 4S Preorders Begin on October 7, Available on October 14”
