It doesn't seem that long ago that the only way to sync and backup my iDevice was to iTunes. However nowadays a new user may not even be aware of iTunes backup or even have access to a computer for that matter. Instead you are encouraged to signup for iCloud and backup to iCloud. If you just got your first iDevice or are not a heavy user this works wonderfully. But for some of us, there are still some things to consider about backing up our iDevices.
It seems funny to write about economy when we have a much worse problem looming. Who cares if you make $10.10/hour when we are busy committing suicide by sponsoring such activities as the Keystone XL Pipeline.
I've got at smartphone. But I think of it as a pocket computer. Before people began using the term smartphone I already had a POTS line (not to be confused with a POTUS line) plugged into my computer, a modem, various networking protocols, and was experimenting with voice over IP. To me a phone was an integral part of a computer. And it was already obvious (to a Byte subscriber anyway) that the future of telephony was digital and wireless.
Every once in a while I change the technology I use to publish on my website. Sometimes it is a big change such as when I first migrated to Drupal. Other times it is something smaller. And a couple of times I've experimented with posting from blogging software. Today I'm trying out Blogsy from my iPad. I first purchased and downloaded Blogsy some time ago. But this site wasn't configured for external blogging. And it was getting late. I work a lot and somehow it got moved to the back burner where it stayed until now. In the meantime different pieces fell together.
Four years ago I wrote that the political media was dead and didn't know it yet. I thought at that time we'd quickly bury that corpse. Tonight we drove another stake into its undead heart but like zombies the only sure kill is to kill the head. I'm sure everyone feels a huge sense of relief that the elections are over. Especially when we have spent what seems like an eternity listening to the media talk about the "race". Perhaps that is part of the strategy.
I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.
I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.
You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward.
I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.
Was messing around with some old iPhone 4s and Walmart Family Mobile since my parents wanted the phones and wanted the cheapest phone bill they could get. I found various how-tos on the web and tried to combine what I found into one set of sensible instructions. Hopefully in the future things won't be like this.
Just thought I'd record my predictions for the iPhone 5 before it is announced and see how close I can get. Essentially a lot of this is already known from leaked parts. I'm under NDA regarding iOS 6 but I might guess at features that I have not seen. I've updated this with comments about what actually was announced.
