    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.

    403Forbidden(sorry)

    It could be that their site is down. Short of getting out of bed and going to the computer I tried to get to the Corrie.net on iPad and iPhone. I receive the same message 403 on both devices. I even tried going in via google. There may be something about the site access via their twitter...

    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...

    Weather

    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.

    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    System of a Down. This weekend I'm taking my daughter and granddaughter to Warped Tour. I'll have new music soon. We'll have a repeat performance on Thursday.

    What are you reading now?

    I love the 'one being published every minute.' My wife is a librarian (in a small town (900people)). She gets the skinny on the books I might be interested in.

    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    The sound track to Sound City. Fell in love with the movie at a movie festival last weekend in Mendocino. My wife insisted on buying the vinyl LP. I guess that makes it an analog to analog recording. Just like the old days. *o*

    What are you reading now?

    I'm reading The Human Division by John Scalzi. He has some humor in this one, subtle at times but funny. It is set in the same universe as Old Man's War.

    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    Perhaps while you were listening to this, I was listening to Fearless from Meddle. The clock seems close. I wanted to hear the Liverpool fans singing at the end of the song. On Animals I like the alteration of Psalm 23 in Sheep. - fid

    Gee, thanks. It really was nice out side. Tonight when I walked my niece home the moon was bright enough to not need a torch. I was in shirt sleeves and short pants. Springtime is lovely. Only a few more days until the full moon and eclipse.

    It's a perfect Spring afternoon. The wind is whispering. The trees are sighing. The sun is shining. I'm relaxing in the mottled shade of the cypress trees, post Guinness.

    Move iTunes data from XP to Mac

    Greetings, I just bought (not delivered, yet) a new MacBook Pro. I want to keep my iPad data and not have to reset or reinstall everything. I also want to transfer all of the music, videos, etc. from the XP iTunes to the new computer. I really don't want to lose the contacts or downloaded...

    Tomorrow we are supposed to get a little bit of rain for two days. Up to two inches, too. I wish it was more. I keep asking those who are getting more than their share to send it my way. It had been a gorgeous spring like winter. We'll be very dry all summer if this keeps up. Btw, I added...

    Apple Apps Gone Free

    Perhaps they are only free for some. I just checked and they are $9.99 each in the US Apple Store. I checked with an iPad 4 iOS 7.0.6. My wife bought it for me in December 2012. (That sounds so long ago.) Maybe I need to refresh my store account?

    Phoneclean download

    Greetings, it appears that this cleaner needs to be installed on a PC or Mac and then run from there. Another thing to check with your iPad is plug it in to your computer and check the usage bar of your iPad in iTunes. Select your iPad in iTunes and look at the colored bar at the bottom of...

    Tweak to hide time/battery in Photos

    I'd like to throw in my two cents worth of thanks, too. Twerppoet, thanks. You are on here a lot and I enjoy reading the helpful hints you post. When iOS 7 came around the top and bottom bars seemed to become much more in the way to me. It took a minute for me to realize that I had to tap...

    Tweak to hide time/battery in Photos

    Thank you Marilyn. That explains my situation. I'll try the tweak you recommend. One way around it that I tried tonight was to open a photo in the free photoshop app and do a screen capture. Then back in the regular Apple picture viewer I was able to crop the photo to get rid of the time and...

    Tweak to hide time/battery in Photos

    Greetings, I'm unsatisfied with the displaying the time/battery bar at the top when looking at a photo. I like to do a screen capture to make a picture smaller in Bytes, or quickly crop and save the aspect ratio. Since iOS 7 I have noticed there is a current time and battery captured at the...

    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    Skrillex, 4th album. Decided to test it out. Really good background music when you are doing things that don't occupy your mind.

    Thanks Admiral. If you are in this part of the galaxy stop on by. There's plenty of room. It's about 75 in the shade today. I had some outside work to do (front brake job) and it is really nice.

    iMessages

    I don't know the reason, but I cannot get iMessage to send to anything but a, iPhone or iPad. Recently it is messing up if the iPhone is not 'live' and connected to the network. My iPad is wifi only. iMessage is set up with my email address. Maybe that is why I cannot send to a non-Apple device.

    Insomnia updated, toggle gone

    I would uninstall the tweak, reboot (should not matter), then reinstall the tweak. edit: you can also try installing, or re-installing, insomnia toggle for SBSettings.
