    Do not upgrade to iOS 13

    I got the notification that 13 was available, but I tend to wait a little before updating due to bugs. Ho-boy, there are bugs. One reporter was quoted as calling it a “clusterfuck”. It’s bad. The DOD is even telling their people not to upgrade due to a big vulnerability. I am not going to list...

    iPhone 7 iPhone 7/7 Plus Reviews, Thoughts & Complaints?

    So, I've had my silver 7+ long enough now, I can give an impression. Pros: in a word, speed. Not just the processor and ram bumps, but wifi and cellular speeds as well. The camera is definitely a huge upgrade, and I've taken a number of photos that have impressed my group of friends. Also, the...

    I got a job at Macy's Systems and Technology division here in Georgia, and with drive time and work hours, im occupied almost 12 hours a day. I'm exhausted when I get home, and usually nap a bit and then eat watch some tv or Netflix before passing out and doing it all over again. Plus a few...

    iPhone 7 iPhone 7 preorder thread

    Tardy to the party... I ordered mid day on pre-order day. Initially it said 2-3 weeks, with expected receive date of October 9th. Was notified this morning that I should have it this Wednesday or Thursday!!! Silver 7plus, 128Gb. (256 just seemed like too much when I still have about 40gb free in...

    Post Your Last Purchase

    So I used the wish app and bought a Samsung knock-off smart watch. It wasn't anything spectacular, just slightly more convenient than using the phone, and it some cases, slightly more inconvenient, since it required 2 BT connections, and was a big battery drain. I originally wanted a pebble, but...

    Lightning to Aux Out - Finally

    My autopilot still works fine. I have it in my 2001 pathfinder still. But like I said, I didn't have the option for using it in the 2011 pathfinder, hence the radio upgrade. (The stock radio was crap, because I got an S series. Apparently S stands for stripped)

    Lightning to Aux Out - Finally

    I used the Griffin AutoPilot (discontinued, but you can get really cheap on Amazon) with a short 30 pin to lightning adapter. The main portion of the unit does not use a dedicated cable for AUX, so if the need calls for it, you can use a cassette adapter, or whatever you need to pass to that has...

    LifeProof fre iPhone 6 case now available

    I preordered when I was notified about the new Fré case. After receiving it, testing, and installing, I took it to work and found that I cannot use the HDMI or VGA adapters that I use daily for my job. (I'm a collaboration media systems specialist, and use both my iPhone and iPad for systems...

    Apple has released iOS 8.1

    I updated my iPad Air yesterday after work, and it took 4 minutes to download. It installed quickly and it seems to have fixed my wifi and BT issues, which were numerous. I started my ip6 last night and ran the install this morning. At least it connected to the wifi right off the bat. My...

    iOS 8.0.2 is out and won't kill your cell service

    The first time I restored, I used the backup I made right before restoring. Problem persisted. This time I used the backup of my iPhone. Problem seems to have gone away, but after googling the issues, other people have gone down this path and had the problem return. I will say, so far, so good.

    Does anyone know what this is - some kind of setting controls?

    I have that set to activate by triple clicking the home button. That also toggles it off.

    iOS 8.0.2 is out and won't kill your cell service

    I wish I hadn't updated... I am having issues with "Settings" crashing when Wifi is enabled. I can use Wifi, but I have to point to the connection I want, and once its connected, I cannot access settings until I pull up the bottom menu and turn Wifi off. There are 4 access points at work that I...
