iOS 7 is now out in the wild and a whole lot of iOS users have already downloaded and updated our iDevices with it.
You might even have noticed a new dedicated FaceTime app on iOS 7! Excited, you check out the app and try and call someone. Then… “Failed Connection”. Then you try and re-activate FaceTime on, it just gets stuck at “Waiting for activation”. Darn.
Seems like a corrupted settings somewhere during the upgrade phase. But I More >
LifeProof have always been a well known case amongst iPhone enthusiasts. They are the pioneers of waterproof cases for the iPhone, iPad and the iPod Touch. And yes, I’m actually kinda late getting on the LifeProof bandwagon. But don’t worry. This isn’t yet another review of the LifeProof case. There really is no point for that as there are already an abundance of reviews online. Instead, I thought I’d just share why I say that this was the More >
If you haven’t already noticed a new section called Photoblog here in this site, well, now you know!
I’ve given myself the challenge of posting at least one photo a day using only the iPhone. Editing is also done only on the iPhone. Call it an experiment on iPhoneography too.
There are some basic ground rules that I’m trying to follow:-
- Minimum 1 photo upload a day – strive for a 3:1 ratio and pick the best of the day.
- 1:1 framing More >
Briefly: 1Password on 50% sale & how to move your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch backups to an external drive0
Here are two quick updates which I thought I should share to anyone who follows my blog.
1Password is on sale!
In celebration of the MacWorld convention happening today (or yesterday depending on your timezone.) Anyone who’s talked to me about password management would have heard me recommending 1Password. It’s really one of the best and easiest app to use to manage all your passwords. There’s never been a time where you really need to More >
In the recent Mountain Lion preview announcement, we are starting to see quite a bit of convergence of iOS apps being introduced into
Mac OS X. There’s a whole lot of iCloud enhanced apps like Calendar, Reminder, Notes, etc.
Basically, if you are familiar with the iPad, there’s nothing really new here, except that it’s going to be available soon! But there’s also a gem that was released on the same announcement, and that’s the Messages app More >
I’m sure you are already upgraded to iOS 5 by now if your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch supports it. Well, even if you aren’t yet, it’s probably just because you didn’t have the time yet.
It’s only been a week since I’ve updated my iPhone 3Gs and I’ve to say that it’s the best OS that’s landed on the iPhone 3Gs. The performance is great and it also feels much faster than iOS 4.x. Overall, I’m a happy camper that my 3Gs has received a new More >
I recently installed XCode 4 off the Mac App Store. Once that was done, i found that iTunes started throwing me the “iTunes was unable to load dataclass information from Sync Services” error every time I try to plug in the iPad and iPhone to sync via iTunes.
Darn! Looks like the Xcode 4 install screwed up iTunes in some way.
By now, most of you iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch folks would probably already be on iOS 4.3. But there’s one thing that might have bugged you a whole lot. If you happened to sync a huge load of photos via iTunes to your iDevice, chances are, you’d notice that the photos may not fit in the available storage anymore.
Worse still, you may even get the ”The required file cannot be found.” error and not able to sync the photos at all!
It seems More >
Anyways, if you have read my blog recently and did follow what I did, you’d most likely already have your iPhone or iPad updated to iOS 4.2.1 GM. Technically speaking, it’s the same build of the latest official release of iOS 4.2 via iTunes today.
However, if you’re using an iPhone 3GS, you’d probably notice that the you’d still get a notification for an update via iTunes. This More >
Looks like a newer version of the iOS 4.2.1 GM is out. It’s just been released and it’s available for all the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. You can get it from this particular site now and update your iDevices as per my previous two blog posts - 5 reasons to update the iPhone to iOS 4.2 GM & Updating your iPad to iOS 4.2 now, GM2 that is. Go, download iOS 4.2.1 and have fun now!
Updated: Just discovered that you can also Option+Update More >
I’m sure you are aware of the latest news around the iOS 4.2. Currently on GM release to the developers, it’s still being delayed from release to the public.
Whatever the real reason for the delay might be, it seems that the generally believed idea is that there was a WiFi bug that was discovered on the iOS 4.2 firmware for the iPad which has since saw a second release of the GM candidate which I’ve tested out to work perfectly here in my More >
Recently, my iPhone’s ability to wirelessly tether the Internet connection from my mobile data plan through bluetooth was broken. I wasn’t sure what went wrong or what broke it. All I did right before it happened was to upgrade my RAM from 4GB to 8GB and also the hard disk to a nice 7200RPM 500GB Western Digital Scropio. And the guy that helped me upgrade it did a PRAM reset as well.
But anyways, it just go screwed up. It would still pair More >
iOS 4.1 is out and you want to immediately update your iPhone to get it updated with the latest iOS and patch all those bugs. So you fired up iTunes and click on the update button. Then iTunes tells you that it would take 3-4 hours to download the almost 400MB firmware update.
3 to 4 hours if you’re lucky that is. And on top of that, let’s hope your download don’t timeout!
Sounds familiar? Well, if you’re as unlucky as I am when it comes More >
To summarize the outcome of Apple’s press conference on this issue, all iPhone 4 users would be getting a free Bumper case. If you’re already bought the bumper, you’d get a refund. If you’re still not too happy with the iPhone 4, return it with no questions asked.
Seriously, what more More >

Firstly, lithium-based batteries likes their electrons to keep moving. That way, the battery stays More >
