Today is one of those days where iPhone users have a lot to look forward to. No, it's not the release of a new phone, that happens on Friday of this week (September 20th). It's the release of the newest Operating System iOS7. It's like getting a new phone all over again! Here is what you can look forward to when you download and update your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
True to form, Apple has made their end of summer announcement and they have given us a few new products and a new OS to look forward to. Or not? If we take the Stock market as an indication, perhaps people are not that excited.
Finally Moto Droid RAZR users get to enjoy all the fabulousness that is Jelly Bean 4.1.2
Google Now, improved camera, Voice Search, New Notification bar...Well, see for yourself, read below all the enhancements and fixes you'll experience with this upgrade. I would suggest backing up before you upgrade!
Samsung Galaxy 3III Update
The Galaxy SIII update rolled out yesterday only a few months after the original Jelly Bean rolled out. I know because I got giddy when I saw it appear in notifications! This will bring you up to 4.1.2. Here's what to expect. Oh and just a quick tip. Always try to do a back up before you do an update, just to be safe. If you are subscribed to BackUp Assistant you are good to go!
Apple is finally rectifying the whole battery issue that was a result of iOS 6. When iOS 6 came out, everyone wanted to get a piece of it. Apple Maps were supposed to be as great as Google Maps and there were all kinds of enhancements like turn by turn directions that made the upgrade so compelling that I personally stopped everything the minute my phone was ready for it. It took about an hour and a half because the rest of the world was probably downloading it too. That being the case, the rest of the world experienced what I did. Horrible battery drain.
Why We Should Give BlackBerry a Chance
Now, they might not have had the best reputation for the past few years, but I believe BlackBerry has a chance for a huge comeback. With all the new technology smartphones have now, I think it’s time we give BlackBerry a fair chance. With the new BlackBerry models slated to release around mid March, who knows, they might come to surprise you. Considering they were the tech titans of the early 2000’s I feel like we at least owe them the benefit of the doubt. Here are some reasons why:
Samsung Galaxy Note II Update or shall I call it a restart?
Imagine my surprise when I woke up to a software upgrade this morning that I wasn't even waiting for.
If you have a Note II, before you go getting all amped up. it was just a security patch.
Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update, SW Version
Baseband version: I605VRALL4 Build Number: JRO03C.I605VRALL4, for
your Samsung Galaxy Note II.
+ Android Security Patch added for additional security.
That's it! I don't know what they secured but it takes all of about 1 minute, then it restarts so you won't be inconvenienced for more that the time it takes to brush your teeth. That's what I was doing while it was restarting. Because it was so fast, I knew there wasn't going to be much to write home about but I just thought I'd fill you in on the deets.
