My son’s iPhone 5 recently started giving him problems. While it was otherwise working well, it would stop charging when he would move the phone or bump/jostle the charging cable.
We’re in the process of switching from Dish Network to DirecTV. Unfortunately, the DirecTV app for iOS doesn’t work on jailbroken devices. I’m not really sure why they bother blocking jailbreakers, but they do. Pretty annoying, huh?
I recently updated the Google app on my iPhone and I have to say… Google Now is pretty cool. Cool enough that it’s now sitting in my launch bar. That being said, I’ve discovered an annoying bug with respect to Bluetooth integration.
As an iPhone owner, there’s no worse feeling than picking up your phone and have it refuse to turn on. You hit the “home” button and nothing happens. You hit the “power” button. Same result. What’s going on?
Last night I had my old iPhone re-activated. It was our oldest son’s birthday and he wanted nothing more than a smartphone to replace his old “feature” phone. Since none of us are eligible for an upgrade, this was the cheapest path.
Bummed that Apple booted Google Maps from their latest iOS update? Don’t despair. Google has promised a dedicated Google Maps app, much like they did for YouTube, but what can you do until it’s available?
As a followup to my previous post about changing the e-mail signature on your iPhone, I wanted to point out that it’s also possible to configure Gmail (or Google Apps) to use different signatures when using the mobile vs. desktop interface.
