What does Unified Info mean on iPhone?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, January 20, 2013

Among the standard WordPress offerings are statistics on each blog, and corresponding search terms that were used to discover any particular entry. Those are very powerful tools, and in the proper hands, can be effectively utilized.

It’s interesting to read the search terms that often lead to this blog, and to this point, though I have considered opining on some of the more “fascinating” or “peculiar” entries, I shall share something a wee bit less salacious.

In fact, it’s not salacious at all.

One such entry was “what does unified info mean on iPhone“?

First, consider what the word “unified” means.

“Unified” means “to make, or become united, uniform or whole.”

The prefix “uni” means “one.”

By implication, unity, unification, or unified means that exactness is present. There is no variation, or difference.

Things are as one. They are made into one. To unify is to make into one.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, October 18, 2012

Most often, Akismet – a spam filtering service by Automattic – catches spam.

You’d better hide your eggs, hide your drakes, hide your hens, ’cause DUCK HUNTING SEASON is about to begin!

The Oregon Ducks – what kind of self-respecting team is named the “Ducks”!? What a joke! Why not name yourselves the “Fleas”? – are about to have their lunch eaten, and every one of ’em are going to go home empty-handed, hungry, with more than just their pride wounded.

The MIGHTY AUBURN TIGERS have arrived!

WordPress CrashBlog: “We created new bugs that made things worse.”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, October 4, 2010

By most accounts – including my own – WordPress 2.6 for the iOS is an abysmal failure. While this blog entry (http://ios.wordpress.org/2010/09/29/introducing-version-2-6/) lauds many “new and improved” features, reports from the users’ community – as read on the Apple app store – are anything but complimentary, and instead reveal a miasmatic cornucopia of problems, not the least of which is “crashing,” the unexpected and sudden failure if the app. Equally concerning among the complainants is the perception that …Continue…

Do NOT “update” WordPress iPhone app

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, September 30, 2010

For the untold numbers of iPhone users whom even occasionally use the WordPress blogging app, I have ONE suggestion: STAY AWAY from the UPDATE to version 2.6!

Having been a faithful customer of Apple, and of the iPhone, I am experiencing increasing discontent with what I perceive to be very careless, lackadaisical, even malicious failures of developers to be attuned to the iOS and issues of compatibility, or even operation! It’s akin to going to a restaurant, ordering a two eggs omelette, and having the raw ingredients dumped in your lap by the cook. Meanwhile, the hotty-totty waitress smiles and coos, asking if you’d like a refill on your coffee.

“Sure, hon… can I have a hot fresh cup poured in my lap?”

The text of my report to the developer follows: Read the rest of this entry »

Spam the Spammer

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, March 28, 2010

If you keep a blog, or if you have an e-mail account, you know what a headache it is to get such garbage in your inbox, or on your site.

I’m referring to spam… not the tasty mixed-meat-in-a-can which is apparently popular with Hawaiians, but to the automatically-computer-generated gobblydegook that purports to promote everything from …Continue…
