    Twins spend more than $1500 buying virtual pets on iPad app

    This situation is beyond ridiculously funny. Seriously, Apple has put into place MULTIPLE safe guards to avoid this VERY situation. And what is even funnier is, that the parents had all the safeguards in place. The only problem is the safeguards are completely useless when you give the...

    Missing 'image carousel' in Google Images section on a Safari tab on iPad Mini

    Google is pretty good about spotting bugs in there search engine based on how people are using it. Glad to see the found a workaround for the iOS 7 Safari bugs.

    iOS 7 - first impressions

    Nope. Soft reset requires you to hold the Standby Button for 5 seconds and then use the "slide to power off" control that shows at the top of the screen in red.

    iOS 7 - first impressions

    Soft reset is a power off by the slider. Hard reset is the power and home button held at the same time. The difference is very simple. The soft reset does not clear any files saved durning a normal shutdown, which allows the startup to have certain presets loaded. The hard reset deletes all...

    Apple forcing i0S7 download ??

    Yeah, I will. :D iOS devices don't differentiate between input power sources. So to it, it was hooked to AC. The only thing they really check for is too low of an amperage and if detected warn the users that the device will communicate but not charge. And it will replace it based on the last...

    Agreed. Hopefully this is something that Google is only doing temporarily.

    Sweep from the VERY BOTTOM (where the glass starts) upwards. This will bring up the new Control Panel which replaces the way it was done in iOS 6 and older.

    Missing 'image carousel' in Google Images section on a Safari tab on iPad Mini

    If Google was seeing too many image re-requests because of the bugs in Safari, that may be why they shut it down.

    Out of curiosity are you on an iPhone or iPad? Because on the iPhone you have to scroll UP to get the URL bar to reappear.

    Missing 'image carousel' in Google Images section on a Safari tab on iPad Mini

    Google turned the feature off for iOS 7 from the looks of it. Just confirmed it on my iPhone 5S. And my iPad 2 on iOS 6 still works as both of us expect. iOS 7's Safari has some MAJOR issues compatability and coding wise, but I didn't think it was bad enough that Google would turn off a...

    Apple forcing i0S7 download ??

    *shakes head* What really makes me laugh is.... iOS 5 had this feature. iOS 6 had this feature. Yet people are making some freaking big deal over something that has been around for TWO YEARS..... Why are they just starting to complain now?

    Problems downloading apps after OS7 update

    Hate recommending that solution because of the time it takes to accomplish but it is usually the "just about solve everything".

    Problems downloading apps after OS7 update

    If you are not connected to WiFi, then you have to turn cellular data app updating on. If you are under WiFi, then I suggest you click on each app exactly once. This will retry the download.

    Ios 7

    Nope. Try this quick change in settings to see if the text looks better to you. Settings > General > Accessibility. Turn "Increase Contrast" to On and then set "Bold Text" to On. It will tell you it needs to reboot, say ok and then check.

    Ios 7 apps update

    Bwahahahaha! Beat you both that time!

    Ios 7 apps update

    Nope. Because they added automatic updates, they now list the last 14 days worth of updates. This allows the user to see what was updated and when in case an app stops working.

    Mail

    If it is a gmail account, you will need to to delete and readd the account. Gmail turned off IMAP support and no longer supports the Exchange setup.

    iOS 7 download size?

    Actually I do have a secondary observation. One that I can't 100% backup with facts but... Sometimes they have to run a piece of conversion code on certain data elements used by the OS when installing an upgrade. From my personal experience using iTunes "seems" to do a better job of...

    iOS 7 download size?

    ISPWs downloaded for iTunes or XCode installs are 100% overwrites of the devices firmware. This removes any room for error. OTA are differential updates and only address the areas that need to be updated. Which is why the OTA iOS 7.0.1 update for the iPhone 5C and 5S is only ~19MB where as...

    How to add events to Reminders app?

    LOL! You could at disguise it by saying "Hey Baby. Can you remind me to take out the trash on Wednesday at 7am?". Then they might think you are talking to your significant other on speaker phone. :D

    How to add events to Reminders app?

    Personally I still prefer using Siri to do it. "Remind me to take out the trash on Wednesday, 7 am" Works like a champ.

    Correcting is not stopping. Discussing facts are encouraged. Spreading bad or mis-information is frowned upon. And if you are 38, you would know this and research it for yourself. You are welcome.

    App for clearing background memory

    And all it does is request memory that is not "in use" and then releases it. Which is NOT FREEING ANYTHING becaus it was already NOT IN USE. Talk about snake oil. And for the people that actually want to learn, this is how iOS works with memory. There are 5 types of memory usage. 1) Wired...

    How to Save Battery Life on iOS 7 ( Complete Guide )

    The only reason that took a few minutes to type is because I typed it from memory. I didn't have to reference the internet. After 28 years of TCP/IP based work, you learn a few things along the way. BTW the USAF also trained me as a electronics technician back in the mid 80s. And I have...

    How to get rid of top hits iOS7

    ardchoille thanks for clarifying the OPs question. Totally missed that. OK, the feature does work when you turn off both "Search Suggestions" and "Preload Top Hit". BUT (yes there is always a but) it doesn't delete the pre-cached results from before the time you turned it off. To do that...

    How to Save Battery Life on iOS 7 ( Complete Guide )

    EXCELLENT! They have changed the rules or the SDK since I last read them in mid 2011. Now there was a SDK feature introduced back in iOS 4, if memory serves, that allowed an app to show a notification when the device is full charged. The question now is, does the app trigger at 100% on...
