New dual 24” monitors on my office desktop … sweet!

Body: I just added 2 new HP L2445W monitors to my desktop in the office.  DVI attached to a tower PC running Windows Vista Ultimate.  3840 x 1200 pixels.  This is cool stuff … but I have to admit I’m having a little trouble with my no-line bifocal glasses.  I can have four 8-1/2” x 11” full size pages side by side at the same time.  SWEET!

Upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0

Body: I download version 8.2 of iTunes and 3.0 for the iPhone today.  Installation of 8.2, which was required to update the iPhone, went without a problem.  The 3.0 update started ok … but continued to error out in iTunes and restart the iPhone.  I disconnect the USB iPhone connection and installation completed and request connection back to iTunes to complete.  This seemed to resolve the installation problems. New features that I will use: Cut, Copy & Paste  (I can’t believe they left this out of v2.0) Landscape Keyboard  (much better for my thumbs) MMS  (MMS support from AT&T coming in late summer) Spotlight Search  (really nice feature … even search in inbox … cool) Voice Memos  (Already had an app for this … but will try this one out) Improved Calendar  (I see no differences here) Internet Tethering  (Tethering is not currently offered in the US and some other countries) Stereo Bluetooth  (Now I can listen to Podcasts on my Bluetooth headset) Category: ISI Published: 6/18/2009 8:13 AM

Twitpocalypse is upon us!

Body: I found this interesting.  My Twitterrific application on my iPhone was affected by Twitpocalypse.  They just update the application with version 2.0.2 to resolve the problem.  Over 2 billion tweets … WOW. The Twitpocalypse is similar to the Y2K bug. The unique identifier associated to each tweet has now exceeded 2,147,483,647 1 For some of your favorite third-party Twitter services not designed to handle such a case, the sequence will suddenly turn into negative numbers. At this point, they are very likely to malfunction or crash. http://www.twitpocalypse.com/ Category: ISI Published: 6/16/2009 3:00 PM

Client question of the day: "If I drop my PC in the bathtub, will that erase all of the data on my hard drive?"

Body: Best answer from staff: “We recommend you unplug the PC first.” Follow up questions from client: “Would it help if I add bleach?” Category: Quotes Published: 6/7/2009 11:45 PM
