    New app for getting free cases on Apple.com

    To get your free case, you install an app and pick it from there. Interesting approach but it probably cuts down on traffic to the main site. So, go get your app here...

    iPad losing time?

    Anybody else notice your iPad losing time? Mine has been accurate until today when I saw that it was about 20 minutes slow. I'd seen reports that connecting it to your commuter and just launching iTunes would correct it, so I tried that. It did fix the time but why would it be off in the...

    Need a camera for your iPad, try this app

    Camera For iPad For $0.99, it’s pretty impressive. If you have an iPhone (3G or 3GS), you buy the app once and install it on both the phone and iPad. It then lets you use the iPhone’s camera to take pictures and send them to the iPad. It can connect to the iPad using WiFi, or Bluetooth so you...

    Managing MobileMe folders using iPad Safari, a vicious cycle

    Now that I have yet another device where I will read email, I moved all my email from my MacBook Pro out to the MobileMe servers so I’d have access to it regardless of what device I was using to read it. I then wanted to go up to the MobileMe website to make a few tweaks to the folders...

    Is 4.0 beta buggy, you betcha!

    I'm not sure if this has happened to anyone running 4.0 yet but I just had my phone (3G model) refuse to turn off, then when I forced it off by holding the sleep and home buttons for 10 seconds, it refused to let me do anything unless I restored it. I started noticing it being very slow doing...

    OS 4.0 setting Springboard Wallpaper?

    Can someone who’s installed 4.0 beta tell me how the Springboard Wallpaper is set. I’ve got the beta installed and am on a 3G and when I try to set the Wallpaper, I only get a Set and Cancel button. The screen shots show there should be other options for the Lock Screen and Home Screen. Are...

    Want some advice for a Man Cave

    This weekend, Karen and I decided that my birthday present this year will be a redesign of our bonus room into a Man Cave for me. I have a few ideas about what to put in it but I'm still looking for suggestions on what sort of things are a necessity in a man cave. The room in question is about...

    Attention to detail on visuals is fantastic

    Have you noticed how much attention to detail Apple gave the visuals in the UI? It's amazing. For instance, in iBooks, do a partial page turn and you can see what looks like ink bleed through on the back of the page you're turning, just like on a real book. Also, if you run Notes in...

    The iPad is heavy

    They said it weighed 1-1/2 lbs which doesn’t sound so bad at first, but I don’t know how long I’d be able to hold it in one hand and read or watch movies. After 10 minutes, my hands are aching. A case with a stand or some way to support it will be a requirement for me.

    We will call April 3, 2010...

    The original iPod didn’t have a special moniker for its launch day since nobody really knew what the iPod was or how big it would become. The iPhone launch day was known as “iDay” (and maybe “iiDay" for the 3G launch) The iPad needs a special name for its launch day so I hereby dub April...

    A preemptive strike...

    to all those that think they’ll try to get away with an April Fools joke tomorrow by saying “My iPad was delivered today!” We won’t believe you. :dft012:wink

    iPad has been ordered!

    I got mine preordered. Yay! The only thing that concerns me is that there was no “Pickup at store” option for shipping. They did say the delivery date would be April 3 though. Can’t wait! :ok:ok

    Apple might consider dropping price on iPad

    According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple could drop the price of the iPad if it doesn’t sell well: http://www.pcworld.com/article/188831/Apple_to_remain_nimble_on_ipad_pricing.html Why even come out with that this early? Aren’t they concerned that people will hold off buying it if they...

    Question for Facebook people

    A friend of mine is taking a job on a remote south pacific island and said the only way to keep up with him is through Facebook so I signed up for an account. I've avoided doing this because I don't need to get involved with another social networking site that'll eat up more of my free time. I...

    Painting headphone cables black?

    Here's an odd request. I recently replaced the earbuds on my iPhone headset with some Etymotic ER6i Isolator drivers so now I have a headset that has great quality sound plus a mic. I have been using some black ER6i earbuds on my iPod when I ride my motorcycle but I'd like to start using the...

    Installed a new battery myself...

    and it works! :) Thanks to the website iFixit.com and the instructions they post about breaking down an iPhone 3G, I was able to install a new battery in my 3G. It's a little scary opening it up and seeing all the tiny, delicate parts but if you do it slowly and carefuly, it's not that big a...

    Warning to anyone saving Visual Voicemails

    I don't know if most of you realize this but there is a little known "feature" of Visual Voicemail that anyone who wants to save their voicemails needs to know about. On May 12, my mother-in-law called my wife and left a message. Later that night, my wife's mother passed away from a heart...

    Any way to sort TV shows by episode on iPhone?

    I can't seem to find an answer to this so I thought I'd put it out here. I have several seasons of a particular TV series on DVD that I've been ripping down to my iTunes library so I can watch them on my iPhone. I use Handbrake to create the m4v file then import it into my iTunes library. Once...
