iCloud bug??

Just wanted to share this with you. Just received an email in my iCloud account on my iPhone. Thought of it as spam, but on closer inspection I saw that it was an email addressed to kauha@me.com. Kind of worrying don't you think. Might just contact apple about this as my iPhone is not even jailbroken. Below is a screenshot. What do you think? Is there a virus going round that we don't know about?

What will be the next big update to iOS??

Just thinking what will be the next major update to iOS next time. I for one would love to be able to sync my photos on iPhoto on my iMac. I know they are synced j. The cloud but I prefer to have them copied onto my Mac. What would you like to see on the next update?? Comment below and let me know.

Beautiful photos!!

I just literally stumbled onto this one. Beautiful photos from all around the world. Below is an example of what you will see.


Facebook "promote" addition

I forgot to post about this. Noticed this came up on my my Facebook page. I can now promote any article I post on Facebook. I don't know if anyone "ordinary" will use this. The price is expensive also.....3£66 ...British pounds at that!! Below is a screenshot
So let me know if its worth it to you.

Bug on iPhone/safari for iOS

Having received a couple of comments in my blog recently (really excited about that, at least someone is reading a couple of my articles ) I therefore tried to reply to those posts with my blogger app for iPhone but nothing happened. In safari for iOS I disabled the block pop ups but nothing changed. Anyone else have this problem? My friend Peter told me he tried to comment on a post from his iPhone but couldn't. Let me know if you have this problem. In the meanwhile I'm gonna try and look into it.

Siri versus google voice

Just watched a video on Vimeo comparing google voice to Siri. Most people updated to iPhone 4S just to get Siri. I have an iPhone 4 and have previously installed hacked versions of Siri via cydia but they never really worked. I have just tried google voice search and it's very fast and doesn't have difficulties in understanding me.
Here's the link Siri versus google

Facebook photo filters

I've just noticed that Facebook have now filters in the mobile app. It's a good addition. I don't know if I'll use it a lot as I don't usually use photo filters usually. You can also crop a photo which I reckon is useful.

iOS 6.0.1 bugs?

As you may have in my previous posts regarding my iPhone, I updated my iOS to 6.0.1 hoping to fix it. It reinstalled okay but over the past week have noticed a couple of bugs. Notably the amount of bugs. The first one I noticed was the Facebook crashed. It just crashed for nothing. Secondly the sounds I chose for my notifications. I chose the famous "you've got mail" sound but even with it chosen in the settings the default sound is the only one I hear when I receive a mail. Strange no? The third one I noticed is the battery. It doesn't last as long as before. With iOS 6 it would last the whole day in work with about 60% remaining arriving home. Now it's about 30% remaining. I don't know if apple will fix these issues in the upcoming 6.1 update but I presume they are aware if these issues. Please share and comment below.

"No service" iOS 6.0.1

My iPhone seems to be working perfectly since I updated to 6.0.1 and disabled the "automatic" in the carrier settings. I have never had so many signal bars on my phone since I did that. I can't understand why apple doesn't fix this bug as from what I've seen on the net since googling the problem I'm not the only one. Maybe it's just a coincidence but the update seems to have corrected the error -1 on iTunes and turning the carrier settings from automatic to off seems to have stopped the searching and no service problem. I will keep you up to date if it happens again.

Ps for some reason I can't post comments on blogger with safari on the iPhone. In reply to the comment/question below...you can't actually change the carrier settings on your iPhone if you're stuck in "no service" unfortunately. You have to keep trying until you get your carrier logo working then go to settings and the carrier should be just under Bluetooth in the settings

iPhone no service problem

I finally finished upgrading my iPhone to 6.0.1 last night. In order to solve the problem of no service I just turned off the " automatic" in the carrier part of settings. Don't know if it'll last but hopefully it will. Thought my antenna was broken.

iPhone problems...fixed?

After nearly one hundred (unsuccessful) restores on iTunes I believe the problem is fixed. As it happens apple pushed out a new iOS update today so I decided to try and see if it would resolve my error -1 unable to convert ramrod error 1004
It worked!!! I had tried everything from restoring on another computer to taking it completely apart to see if there was loose connector or something.
