Game Center – the best and worst social network… ever!
So, with the launch of iOS4.1 and Game Center I thought I’d write a brief blog on my thoughts so far. Why Game Center is the worst social network… ever: You can’t send/receive annoying/amusing messages to your friends You can’t see any information about your friends That trumpet sound when friend requests are received There are no games for it (and hence no way to see what animal your friends […]
Simplicity – Friend or Foe?
Going back a couple of years I used a T-Mobile MDA Compact III (HTC Artemis) as my main phone. It ran Windows Mobile and was pretty slow and clunky at times; but it worked. It had mobile internet (although no 3G), it had GPS, a Micro SD slot for expanded memory (although you had to shut it down and remove the battery to access it). I actually liked the phone […]
The Week So Far
I would dearly love to show you some video from Monday’s Green Day gig at Sheffield Arena however my iPhone was stolen and was last ‘seen’ in Liverpool, near Kensington Gardens… On Sunday night my car was broken into as well. Nothing was taken but it did mean I had to pay for a replacement window and the hassle involved.
Geocaching Around Thornton
Those who follow me on Twitter will already be aware of my antics this past Saturday afternoon. Me and Mini-MaFt went geocaching – now if you don’t know what it is then check out the geocaching website but, put simply, it is a GPS/SatNav-based treasure hunt. You get a set of coordinates from the website along with a title and a clue and you have to find the ‘treasure’. Groundspeak, […]
Working for/with PocketGPSWorld.com has it’s perks: various satnav’s, navigation software, new devices & gadgets, best speed camera database and, erm, ahem, random days off to go to theme parks….! I’ve got a few navigation apps on my iPhone and thought a trip to Pleasure Island, Cleethorpes would be a good time to give them a proper road test. To be honest I’m still not fully convinced that the iPhone is […]
Anyone who knows me knows I like cheap. Even better than cheap is free. So it may surprise you that in a bizarre turn-around I’ve actually bought an iPhone app that was £5.99! I like my music and I’ve been using Collectorz.com Music Collector for about 7 years now. MuC (as it is often referred to) is a fantastic piece of Windows and Mac database/collection software specifically for cataloguing CDs, […]
iTunes over the Network
After my rant yesterday about iTunes being a bit rubbish at managing libraries over the network I’m going to eat a bit of humble pie… I thought I’d give it another try and it seems to be OK now. This could be down to one of two things either 1) an update to iTunes solved some issues or 2) better account control on Windows 7 RC. I’m going to opt […]
iPhone OS 3.0 Tethering – Rip Off Prices?
The new iPhone software has been officially announced and is being released to the public on 19th June. I’ve been using the beta for a while now and yes, there are some very good new features – perhaps features that should have been included from the outset? One of the new features that’s not actually available easily yet in the beta (without some hacking) is tethering – use your iPhone […]
