    What are you reading now?

    For the dystopian sci-fi readers out there... I've been reading Afterloop by Jaims Brown. It is very fun, and I love the tech involved. I know, I haven't been here in a while, but I really loved the iPhone app. Getting on in the browser is cumbersome, but I still love all of you. - fid

    How's the battery life with iOS 8.4?

    Since it is a major grumble with phone OS updates I thought I'd ask before upgrading my iPad and Mom's iPhone 5. I can live with the battery on the iPad dropping a little faster, but Mom's iPhone not lasting half a day would be troublesome.

    What are you reading now?

    Hey mydave. Thanks for the suggestions. I am reading The Dispossessed by Ursula LeGuin. Hadn't read it since college. I just finished the second and third books Margaret Atwood started with Oryx and Crake. They are The Year of the Flood, and Maddaddam. They were very entertaining.

    iPad dropped black screen but has back light

    Well, I already had tried the smacking it on the back. Thank you Dave. So I decided, what the heck, try it again. I put in on the table on top of a magazine. I hit it quite hard three or four times. Still nothing. I decided to really give it a thumping. I hit it as hard as I thought I...

    iPad dropped black screen but has back light

    Greetings, My granddaughter (4 years) knocked her mother's iPad to the floor. The glass didn't break, but the screen doesn't display anything. The back light does light up. I am going to take it apart and check the connections. I may have to buy a new screen, with digitizer. I have taken...

    SVG problem on some models on mobile website

    After reading this post a second time, I originally read it about a month ago, I have a question. On the iPads with the image problem do you know what the iOS version is? The problem could be with the iOS version. Have you tested on the iPad 3 or 4? On my iPad 4, iOS 8.1.2, the test site...

    That Tips app

    While waiting for the coffee water to boil this morning I decided to check out the Tips app that I noticed after installing iOS 8. There is a tip about including a sound recording in the iMessages app. There is also a little video example. I didn't get it at first. My first reaction was, "A...

    It's here!

    When I plugged in my iPad 4 this morning it shows that the update available is 7.1.2. This is through iTunes. I am currently on 7.0.6. So I would say that 7.1.2 is still being signed.

    Apostrophe isn't displaying correctly in some posts.

    While reading many posts I've noticed that the apostrophe is replaced by some characters. Here is a sentence I copied from one of the forum topics. "Now’s your chance to tell us what you’ve got." The topic was about reviewing apps that you use a lot posted by Mickey. While I am typing...

    Monday and Tuesday were 106f (41c). I drank a lot of water on Tuesday, but did strenuous work out in the shade. Ended up with a headache lasting 18 hours. It was worth it, but I don't want to go through it again. Today was only 102f. (39c). It felt much better.

    What's the last movie you saw?

    I just watched Ender's Game. It was OK, but not one of my favorites.
