Extending Battery Life in iOS 11

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, October 19, 2017

In Apple’s iOS 11 {as 11.0.3 (15A432)}, shortened battery life/power has been a source of continual complaint form many.

Part of the reason why, is that in iOS 11, the Bluetooth & Wi-Fi features can NOT be turned OFF from the “swipe” menu, which is accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.

Instead, what that “switch” does, is to Read the rest of this entry »

iPhone 5 Error message: Could not activate cellular data network

Ever had this problem?

You’ll notice one other thing about the display on the iPhone.

As you look atop the image, you’ll see numbers instead of the “bars” used to display signal strength. The number -103 is a numerical signal strength indicator, which the proper, and only way to indicate signal strength.

Just in the case you’re not aware of the technical aspects of signal strength, or what the number means, signal strength is measured as a loss.

The number itself is Read the rest of this entry »

Sparsebundle problems with Apple’s Time Machine & Time Capsule? Here’s an easy fix!

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Time Capsule offers automatic backup for your Mac. And it's a full-featured 802.11n wireless base station with simultaneous dual-band support.

Time Capsule offers automatic backup for your Mac. And it’s a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station with simultaneous dual-band support in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously. It delivers great performance and range. And it’s easy to set up from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac.

If you’re like me, enjoying the benefits of Apple’s Time Capsule and Time Machine are among the best, of the many wonderful things Apple has done with computer programming.

However, like all things electronic, or computing, not everything always works 100% properly, 100% of the time.

And, while Apple’s OSX is as good, robust and simple an operating system as it is, it’s not without problems.

One of the problems that occurs is with TimeCapsule’s sparsebundles.

The sparsebundle is the name given to the disk image file that is the backup.

Instead of a single big file, a sparse bundle is a bundle (directory) containing Read the rest of this entry »

Federal Investigators: Google obstructed justice in snooping case

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, April 16, 2012

To some, the decline was in full swing when the term “google” became a proper name, but when “Google” as a proper name (and therefore a noun) began to be used as a verb, as in “Google it,” when referring to an Internet-based search.

Is this not another case in point for strong regulation?

Google fined by FCC for impeding Street View probe

By , Monday, April 16, 9:44 AM

The Federal Communications Commission has cleared Google of charges that it illegally collected WiFi data using its Street View cars, but fined the company $25,000 for obstructing the bureau’s investigation.

According to the FCC filing, the company has not been helping U.S. regulators look into the matter. “For many months, Google deliberately impeded and delayed the Bureau’s investigation by Read the rest of this entry »

The Ultimate iPhone Apple Mac Google Contacts Address Book iCal Calendar iTunes sync post

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, February 23, 2012

2/26/12 Update: Be sure to read also “Sync-ing your iPhone’s Google Contacts/Address Book got you sunk? Fear not!

***

Okay, maybe it’s not the “ultimate.”

But, perhaps it’s the penultimate.

That’s good too, eh?

Yeah.

Well, you dropped the bomb, bought a Mac and or an iPhone, and you have a Google account already. Welcome to the club.

You’re loving Lion and iCloud and probably wondering, “how can I get all my stuff all synced up?”

I can understand why it might all seem confusing.

First, you have iTunes sync.

Then, you’ve got Address Book and Calendar sync.

And then… you’ve got iCloud.

Good grief! How does it all fit together!?!

Sure, it can be Read the rest of this entry »

Why is your cellular service so crummy?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, February 7, 2012

In writing to a friend about telecommunications – starting with the demise of the pay phone – I wrote “I know how ya’ feel.

“How some ever… we were told about how these things might change as far back as ten years ago (or thereabouts), or so.”

I began to explain that we’re now undergoing is a national transformation – albeit one that the telecoms are hating/loving. The problem is, that the dinosaur telecoms are being driven toward revolution by the technology. They’re not leading, they’re being moved by force.

And that force is the people – the market. And yet, there’s a problem with being moved by force. And I do not refer to force in a mild way. I refer to force as ‘when-push-comes-to-shove’ type of force.

The seeming ubiquity of such low-cost technology is Read the rest of this entry »

I’m a die-hard, long-time, Apple Macintosh only computer user. End of conversation. Period.

However, that hasn’t and doesn’t prevent me, or anyone else, from criticizing Apple products.

I use the iPhone 3GS model, with iOS 3.1.3 – jailbroken and unlocked – and …Continue…
