AIM over here

July 23, 2008

I installed the AIM iPhone app while walking to my car. I have got to be the most destracted driver in California.

I have a little more time in my commute. So, let me review my experience. AIMing to a txt is slow. AIMing to a Mac with iChat is fast. I’m assuming that when I close the AIM app, I’m logged off the AIM network, but I didn’t ask. Graphically, the app looks great. I think I’ll hang onto it for those bored and lonely moments… Like at the urgent care waiting room. 😉

Upgrade to iPhone 2.0

July 22, 2008

Last night, I updated my iPhone software to v2.0. I have mixed feelings.

This version broke my Wi-Fi, but added tons of new features to my 1st gen phone. The theory I’ve heard is that this version of the firmware/OS has trouble detecting the wi-fi hardware. It is also rumored that Apple is working on a v2.0.1, which should be available soon.

On the positive side, the new Apps Store is amazing. This is the second blog post that I’ve authored with the WordPress app. I’ve also installed “Remote” by Apple, which will allow me to use my iPhone to remote control any iTunes or Apple TV within wi-fi reach. So cool! There are tons of apps available, some excellent, some lousy. But, Apple had enough foresight to add a user-review system to the App Store.

Aside from the apps, I can now sync my phone with the Exchange server at work. And,I can also save images from web pages or emails to my phone.

Bottom line, Apple, fix my wi-fi, and I think you’ve got an unbeatable mobile device.

WordPress on iPhone

July 22, 2008

I’m sitting in a meeting, and I’ve just installed a Woespress application on my iPhone. Looks pretty nearo-completo; however, I don’t expect many long blog entries to be authored from my phone.

JAM 2008

June 2, 2008

Last week, I was in Nashville, Tennessee.  I was attending the 2008 Jenzabar Annual Meeting, which was held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.  I didn’t bring a camera, but I did take a few photos with my phone and uploaded them to Facebook.

Also, Friday night, Jenzabar rented out the Wild Horse Saloon.  I’m not into the whole country music scene, but I thought it was a fun experience.  Three U-shaped floors looking down onto a stage and dance floor.  Again, no camera except my phone.  And unfortunately, my iPhone doesn’t do well with motion or dark shots.  So, forgive the blurriness.

Eye – Phone – Facebook

February 29, 2008

I just got Mobile Uploads to Facebook working from my iPhone. This is very cool. Now, I can take a picture one minute and share it with my Facebook buddies the next. 😉

iPhone upgraded

January 16, 2008

Apple is Amazing! I just upgraded the firmware on my iPhone. There’s a few things that I’d like to brag about here…

First thing is that the firmware upgrade WORKED!

Secondly, the google maps things is way cooler with the “locate me” button. I now have a GPS dohicky built into my phone. How cool is that?!

Thirdly… you know how Linux has those multiple desktops? Yeah, I’ve got those on my phone now, too.

So, I’ve still got pretty much the most bestest phone out there.

iPhone + Gmail + IMAP

November 14, 2007

Just thought I’d let you all know… Using Gmail via IMAP on the iPhone is awesome.

I just noticed that iPhone supported IMAP.  A quick google search, and I found a super simple HOW-TO to set it up.   Yup, I love it!
