It’s been a year since my last blog post. A year. A lot has happened in that year, my life is very different than it was as I wrote “My Thoughts on Phish as 2011 Closes.” I’m a different person, and the things that make me happy have changed significantly. But here, as 2012 closes, […]
AT&T’s network has improved dramatically in the last year or so. I’ve been really happy with them lately. So it pissed me off a little extra today when I called to get a number blocked and got this nonsense for a response: a non-English speaking person with a phone number one digit off from me […]
I just sent this letter to Apple via their feedback form. Those of you that know me know that this is a big deal for me. I am the owner of many generations of Apple products. From iBooks to Macbook Pros, Macbooks to multiple iMacs, multiple Airport Extremes, Airport Express, AppleTV, every generation of iPhone, […]
I signed up for Vonage in November. We have Vonage ads on OSNews, so I thought I’d give them a shot. I signed up for the $25/mo plan. The problem is, they use recycled numbers, so we got tons of phone calls over the first month or two from people speaking Arabic. I had […]
Update: Please see the bottom of this post for the latest. I am feeling spurned. I used to follow my local news station, Central Florida News 13, on Twitter. A few days ago, I realized that I wasn’t seeing their tweets anymore. Anyone who knows Twitter knows that its performance has been a huge pile […]
All goddamned day I’ve been getting this goddamned whale on Twitter. I’ve also been trying to change the background of my stream, but although it always reports successful (when it doesn’t fail due to capacity problems), it never changes. It either replaces my background with nothing, or it uses the background I had three or […]
Facebook loosed their new interface this week. Thus far, there is nothing “live” about it. This makes me very sad. Honestly, if Facebook doesn’t introduce AJAX-y live update goodness to their homepage, I suspect I’ll use Facebook about 11% as much as I used to.
Dr Pepper needs a new web host. I tried getting through for several hours minutes on Sunday to no avail. So the offer was extended, and now I get this, crappy availability on a crappy Windows server. Lame!
Today is NOT my day when it comes to Apple products. I bought Mobile Me, the ridciulously overpriced service Apple offers, specificaly for its photo album capabilities, but I cannot activate it. Although I am logged into iTunes using my AppleID, and I am registered with my iPhone, AppleTV, etc, for me.com, it says there […]
I posted an article recently called “Apple’s Jobs Gives iPhone Customers What They Don’t Want” that discussed the upcoming 2.2 firmware and its new features. iPhone firmware appears to give us Google Maps’ “Street view” and several other “features.” It does not, however, make available any of the most requested features: MMS, copy & paste, […]
