iPhone 3G and iOS 4.1

Posted by in Technology

Last week Apple released iOS 4.1, the latest operating system for the iPhone and iPod Touch.  It introduced some exciting new features for users of the iPhone 3GS and 4, but I have the iPhone 3G so I didn’t get those.  Instead I received something wonderful: speed. I use my phone mainly for email and at a distant second actual phone calls.  I occasionally check Twitter but that’s about it.  After my upgrade to iOS 4.0 my iPhone 3G became unusably slow; long pauses switching between screens, loading screens, accepting…read more

iPhone backup hanging

Posted by in Technology

With Apple’s release of iOS 4 for their cornucopia of portable devices I was anxious to get this update for my [intlink id=”309″ type=”post”]iPhone 3G[/intlink].  Before I could install the new OS I had to install a new version of iTunes, 91.1.1.12, which I did successfully through the prompts in iTunes.  Everything was very smooth. On reboot I again connected my iPhone and was prompted to install the new OS.  It first started a backup of my phone and I waited for it to advance.  And waited some more: I…read more

Posted by in Technology

Griffin FlexGrip Case for iPhone

Posted by in Technology

With it’s large screen and shiny reflexive case the iPhone is a price target for scratches and scrapes.  Basically a case becomes a must have item.  At first I went searching for a traditional belt clip slide in case but that would still leave the iPhone exposed when in use, and with it’s size it wouldn’t be comfortable on a belt anyway.  Lots of browsing on Apple’s site led me to a few choices, but I wanted to see the cases myself in person so I headed to a local…read more

SOHO Email

Posted by in Technology

I read a post today about setting up hMailServer on your Hard Drive Data Doctor Windows Home Server (WHS).  This reminded me of a lot of comments made during the beta stages of WHS when testers kept asking for a mail server like Exchange to be added to the product.  The developers responded that if you needed that feature then Small Business Server was the product for you. I’ve used every version of Small Business Server right up until the RC1 of SBS 2008: it was the only all around…read more
