iOS 4.3.3 coming soon?

As part of their location data Q&A, Apple today revealed that an iOS update -- iOS 4.3.3? -- would be arriving "Sometime in the next few weeks". So far, Apple has only revealed that the update will:

  • reduces the size of the crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower database cached on the iPhone,
  • ceases backing up this cache, and
  • deletes this cache entirely when Location Services is turned off.

In the next major iOS software release the cache will also be encrypted on the iPhone.

Apple posts Q&A on Location Data

Apple posts Q&A on Location Data

Following the media circus/storm last week involving location data, how it's collected and where it's stored, Apple has decided to post an online Q&A to address the issues.

  1. Why is Apple tracking the location of my iPhone?
    Apple is not tracking the location of your iPhone. Apple has never done so and has no plans to ever do so.
  2. Then why is everyone so concerned about this?
    Providing mobile users with fast and accurate location information while preserving their security and privacy has raised some very complex technical issues which are hard to communicate in a soundbite. Users are confused, partly because the creators of this new technology (including Apple) have not provided enough education about these issues to date.

Cast of Disney’s "Lemonade Mouth" flash mob Los Angeles Apple Store [video]

Cast of Disney’s "Lemonade Mouth" flash mob Los Angeles Apple Store [video]

Over the Easter weekend, some of the cast of Disney’s Lemonade Mouth decided to turn up at the Apple Store in The Grove, Los Angeles and flash mob it. Flash mobbing is a newish craze that involves a group of people turning up at a location and performing an unusual act or performance without permission.

The routine, lead by Chris Brochu and Hayley Kiyoko, two of the film’s stars, organised the flash mob with 15 other friends and decided to capture the whole performance on video. They performed the song Determinate from the Disney Channel production Lemonade Mouth.

The video is after the break, take a look and enjoy the looks on the customers faces and Apple Store staff gently escorting them out of the building!

Unbaked

Unbaked

I spent a couple hours this weekend trying out the BlackBerry PlayBook and Android 3.0, Honeycomb-powered Motorola Xoom tablets. I'd tried the PlayBook and seen the Xoom before at CES 2011, but both were unfinished at the time and I was interested in seeing what the shipping versions were like. Unfortunately, the shipping versions were still unfinished, or more properly, unbaked. They reminded me of cookie dough.

Cookie dough has all the right ingredients, so much so that people can and do enjoy it in its raw, unbaked state. They nibble at it, lick it off mixers, and eat ice cream filled with chunks of it. And why not? It's delicious... In nibbles and licks and chunks. But no matter how good it is in small doses, you inevitably wish someone would just bake it already.
