Apple Updates

Apple decided to ship their 1.1.1 firmware update for the iPhone. Now, this broke all unlocked (as in Non-AT&T) iPhones. Additionally, you can no longer have 3rd Party Applications and the iPhone Dev Team is working hard on breaking this, and I don’t have my custom ringtones. Based on principle, I refuse to purchase ringtones, there’s just no reason to force people to purchase them. I’m eagerly waiting the ability to get my ringtones back.

On another note, I think I’ve decided to get the Apple 10.5 Leopard Family Pack once it’s available with my $100 Rebate and my Gift card that I got for our 6th Month Anniversary, from the beautiful Jenny. Either that, or I’ll end up getting a 160GB iPod Classic. I’m pretty sure it’ll be Leopard.

On a completely separate note, I’ll be moving in with my Grandma after my Grandpa died last weekend. I’ll be paying rent, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ll probably be moving some stuff over, starting next weekend, but we’ll see….

Theory: Apple iPhone Conspiracy

I was just thinking about it. I think Apple Didn’t want to allow 3rd Party developers to write native apps, IE Non-Safari, for the iPhone because they wanted to steal all of the best ideas and “write” (permanently borrow and not tribute) their own versions. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like they might be doing this so that they don’t have to think about what apps people want, they can do market research… just an idea…

I do know that they don’t want to compromise the stability of the phone with 3rd party apps, but why not run those in a sandbox?

Random Thought

I was thinking about this after I ordered my MacBook, and it was sent via Fedex out of Memphis. I’m assuming that most companies keep warehouses very close to Memphis, TN of ready to go, in stock products. They would want to do this since the central hub for worldwide distribution of Fedex is in Memphis… just a random thought…

Tip: iPhone Photos

To pull your iPhone photos off of your phone, connect it to any computer, and use your favorite Photo application to obtain the images. on the Mac, you can use IPhoto, this will preserve the XIF data and import the photos. They are initally at 1600×1200 resolution. On windows, feel free to use MSPaint or Even Word. I’m pretty sure Photoshop Express would allow this too….
