Help: Wi-Fi broke on iOS 6 install

Thursday, September 20th, 2012 | Business | 1 Comment

iOS 6I’m hearing reports that WiFi is breaking on iOS 6 updated phones.

The best thing you can do is:

  1. Forget WiFi Network: Settings->Wifi->(select your network)->Forget This Network
  2. Restart your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc)
  3. Log back on your Wi-Fi network

Some people are reporting this is due to a proxy being assigned to your WiFi (it works but you can’t browser in Safari).

Please let me know if this helps, and if not, what does!

Apple Releases iOS 4.2

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 | Business | No Comments

I’m a few hours behind the times, but it was released today.

Some features include:

  • AirPlay
  • Find My iPhone
  • AirPrint
  • Safari “Find in Page”
  • iPad now supports iOS features that were available on iPhone (all platforms have same functionality now)

I’m excited about AirPrint (yes, I know, I am).  I had heard it was only compatible right now with limited devices.  This limitation was placed by Apple, and is not a limitation of the technology.  Currently it only allows printing to specific HP printers.  There are some alternate solutions for other devices, but I’d give Apple a few months and we should have a larger set of potential printers.

This applies to AppleTV, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.

iTunes 10 is Available, iPod/iOS/AppleTV updates!

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 | Business | No Comments

I’ve been trying to download it all day, finally seeing it available at Apple.com.

Yesterday Apple announced some new features to iTunes 10, some new iOS builds (4.1 and 4.2), new iPod models, and a new Apple TV line.

I’m a big fan of the Apple TV, and am very excited to hear it’s getting an upgrade (and a huge price cut, I paid $300 and was happy to do so).  I may finally be able to have one on every TV in the house — without feeling guilty about it.

Apple TV has been the viewing platform of choice in our house on and off.  It’s so easy to rent a nice looking movie (sorry Netflix, but the quality is just much better on Apple in my opinion — but I love the free movies).  With the news that TV shows will be rentable, suddenly that $150 a month cable seems more optional than ever.

At $0.99 (the rumored price of renting a TV show) that’s 150 tv shows a month.  Bye bye cable!  If only you didn’t have my internet connection.

iOS 4 Scheduled to Release Today

Monday, June 21st, 2010 | Business | No Comments

The new Apple mobile operating system, iOS 4, is supposed to be released today.  Historically Apple makes their moves at 1pm eastern (10am pacific).  I wouldn’t be surprised to hear someone finds the link to iOS4 a bit early today.

As soon as it becomes available, I will let everyone know!

Web Developers: How to develop for iPhone / iPad / iPod Mobile Safari

Thursday, June 10th, 2010 | Business | 6 Comments

In short, don’t.  It’s an uphill fight.

There are a few obstacles in developing for the iPhone / iPad I thought I’d post while it was on my mind:

  • How can I test my “mobile” site?
  • How can I see errors on my iPhone?
  • Why is the iPad and iPhone different?

Basically Apple has decided to make life difficult for web developers.  This was ideally done to improve the user experience on their mobile platforms, but I don’t think it was fully thought out.

Two prototype iPod touches with cameras show up on eBay

Monday, April 26th, 2010 | Business | 2 Comments

From the article:

Well looky what we have here.  Someone has put up two semi-working iPod touches WITH cameras and a development version of the iPod OS on Ebay.  They are marked with ‘DVT-1’ and  ‘DVT-2’, ‘Apple Development Team’ and one is running some sort of ‘switchboard’ OS window.

Yes, we put our bid in but we have a feeling that Apple is going to be the ‘High bidder’ on this one.  Perhaps you’d like to pull a Gizmodo and contact the seller before Apple wakes up?
