Daily Tip: How to opt-out of (and back in to) personalized iAds

Worried that Apple's iAd's is getting too nosy about your personal information and wondering how to opt-out of sharing it with the advertising network?

Updated: Verizon iPhone pre-orders go relatively smoothly

UPDATE: Looks like Verizon couldn't handle iPhone 4 either -- or at least the pre-orders -- as we're now hearing from a bunch of folks for whom the servers simply stopped responding. It doesn't seem to be widespread as others are getting through just fine still. We're guessing whatever problem is occurring, Verizon is working on it. So if you get an error just keep trying and let us know how it goes in the comments!

Early reviews of the Verizon iPhone 4 have hit the web and the short answer is pretty much what we all expected -- AT&T can be faster for data and handles simultaneous voice and data, but Verizon sounds better and has more reception in more places. For the long answers, see the following link:

AT&T adding 2GB to tethering plans and launching AT&T Mobile Hotspot on February 13

AT&T adding 2GB to tethering plans and launching AT&T Mobile Hotspot on February 13

AT&T announced today that beginning on February 13, their tethering plan will include an additional 2GB of data for no extra cost; in addition, the carrier will be launching AT&T Mobile Hotspot next to the HTC Inspire 4G (we're hoping that means iOS 4.3 personal hotspot will be a go as well).

We want to extend the benefits of an additional 2GB to smartphone customers on our tethering plan. This delivers more value today for the price they're already paying – and that's what our customers want.

Give-away: iFixDirect red or blue iPhone 4 color swap

iFixDirect now offers red and blue color swaps for the iPhone 4, and they not only sent me both conversion kits to take a look at and share with you, but are generously giving away a conversion service to one of you, our awesome readers!

Both colors look phenomenal. The red kit is very vibrant and rich in color and the blue kit is a nice deep blue and not quite as showy as the red. What's interesting about the blue kit is that it is very reflective like a mirror.

Apple Stores to have additional antennas to improve reception for Verizon iPhone launch

Apple Stores to have additional antennas to improve reception for Verizon iPhone launch

Following the Verizon iPhone announcement in January it looks like Apple and Verizon surveyed Apple Retail Store to determine which ones needed additional antennas installed to improve Verizon reception.

Not huge news considering big buildings like malls can play havoc with reception and extra antennas are typically used to provide better reception in many of them. It is nice to know Apple and Verizon are doing everything possible to make the launch go as smoothly as possible.

Just remember, it isn't the signal strength at a store you should be paying attention to, but the signal strength at home, at work, at school, and at any other location you frequent. If in doubt ask colleagues, friends, and anyone else using Verizon (or AT&T) in those areas what their reception is like.

Full letter after the break. Pre-orders start tomorrow!
