I’m getting sick of this and so are others. Basically, the phone has been working well enough, but when I’m in an area of weak reception, like where I live, I seem to drop calls.  With 3G on, I drop them even more.  So the fix? Turn off 3G.  Keep it off unless you need… Read More

Well, no one’s perfect. Some on twitter are suggesting we need a gfail icon as with the fail whale. A few suggested a gfail goat. Sure, why not? So I whipped something up really quick. Other thoughts and suggestions? Also, I just heard from @mager via twitter that GMAIL basic HTML works. Did not test… Read More

Well, it could be because you have a defective phone! Yes, it’s possible. Keep in mind that as much as Apple tried to insure the manufacturing process is 6 sigma, there will be fails. I think Intel has the best QA record. Will check on that. A friend of mine, and a few other blogs… Read More

12 of them actually. Usually when I see these things, I know most of them. On this list, I only knew about 1/2 of them. Therefore, this is well worth sharing. http://www.ismashphone.com/2008/08/iphone-tricks.html Home buttons tricks from the same source..

This did not take long.. My phone is still running fine, however I’ve heard from a friend that his phone has become unstable. Basically he is getting random crashes using the phone during calls, playing games, using downloaded apps.  From what I gathered during a long email exchange, the problem SEEMS to be in how… Read More

iPhone OS update 2.0.1 came out today. So being a risky kind a guy, I installed and tested and here are my results. First off, as an winXP user, and full itunes hater (is it slow or did it crash again), I had to wait FAR too long for the download. Ave 650byte/s. Hey, I… Read More

iphonebarcamp. Fun. Yes. Regrets? I have a few, but then again, too few to mention. Well, I’ll mention two. I did not get as involved in the camp as I should have, and I forgot about an afternoon beach party. 🙁 If you have never been to a dev camp, (whatever the technology) it basically… Read More

This is something I did not even think to check till driving into iphonebarcamp today. The iphone 3G would not charge on my car charger. FTW? Well, seems like it’s a common problem and here is the reason, the pin that normally accepts power for firewire is no longer connected. Here is the quote from… Read More

{update} Now with the 3.0 update, you can tether with a bit more ease.  More here.. This is interesting. I read in justanotheriphoneblog.com that an app appeared briefly, then disappeared, and now has reappeared. Kinda like a Quark I guess. Anyway, at the time of this writing, it’s still there so you may want to… Read More

And why does it sux? Is it the fact that the screen has this faded yellow shade to it? Naw, I can get used to that. I’m sure they made it warmer to extend battery life. A hack will come along to resolve it. Is it the fact that all those cool programs from 1.1.x… Read More

If you hit the interwebs, don’t be surprised when it hits back. (The anger of the crowds) There are plenty of stories on how numbers of people use the web for righting wrongs; catching petty thiefs, freeing a reporter from prison in a foreign land, fighting a cult (or religion depending on how you look… Read More

Never spend all your Karma in one place. (updated) My bad week started Sunday night and I’m hoping it ends tonight… (it didnt) Sunday I take my tablet computer, the tc1100 (the only used tablet that is costing more as it gets older) with me on a visit to my nieces and nephews in Sacto.… Read More

I have not been to many events in the last month, been REALLY busy. So much so, I would not even bother writing this post. However, after seeing the google IO party, I have to make an exception. I still am busy though, so this will be short and choppy. Please note all images were… Read More

THIS is how you write a cheque (check). Love it. Just love it!  The only thing that would have been better is if Randall would have spelled out ‘the limit of the sum of (1/2^n) since your suppose to write the amount, in words, in the second line. 🙂 Image below..… Read More

As I’ve said, I really cannot take Lou Dobbs.  Even adultswim lists Lou as ‘FAIL’ along with MS Vista. So I need to have something on, so I switched to Hardball.  I thought Chris was ok and I can watch (really listen) while waiting for Olbermann who I find a bit harsh but ALWAYS entertaining.… Read More
