A Fix for Flaky Touch Screen Behavior, Let My Fingers Guide You

A Fix for Flaky Touch Screen Behavior, Let My Fingers Guide You

So here I am fiddling with my iPhone, when a rare yet not entirely uncommon problem rears itself.

Every now and again my iPhone's touchscreen exhibits a rather strange behavior. When I tap to select a specific item in various applications, the touchscreen misidentifies my tap and executes it in a completely different area code. The device can remain in that state for five or more seconds. No matter how many times you tap on a specific item, something else is selected. Example...I tap on very first new email in my inbox to open it, and the very last email is selected instead. Sound familiar to you? Thought so.

Now Playing: iPhone Crushed by Reclining Theater Chair

Now Playing: iPhone Crushed by Reclining Theater Chair

Nothing could be more relaxing than a luxurious home theater environment, complete with movie theater seating. Just lean back in your comfy reclining chair, and immerse yourself in a great flick brought to life by a huge projection screen. Pure ecstasy.

That is until you are ripped back into reality by the unmistakable sound of your iPhone being crushed by the very chair you are sitting in, like the jaws of a giant can crusher. Unlike the movie you were watching, this story doesn't have a happy ending.

This is precisely what happened to one person, who posted his experience (complete with photos) on Flickr. Here's the story...

AT&T Notifies Customers By Text That It's Ending The Slaughter of Trees, Amazon Rainforest Declared Safe...For Now

AT&T Notifies Customers By Text That It's Ending The Slaughter of Trees, Amazon Rainforest Declared Safe...For Now

I just received a text message earlier today from AT&T, notifying me they are eliminating itemized details in billing, which has been the cause in a recent massive bloat in billing from the wireless carrier.

At&T free msg: We are simplifying your paper bill, removing itemized detail. To view all detail go to att.com/mywireless. Still need full paper bill? Call 611

Nice to see AT&T going green. And it only took public humiliation to change their policy. Who knew?

Thanks to Scott Berks for tipping me as well.

Your iPhone Will Be Unlocked in T-Minus 48 Hours, So They Claim

A website called iPhone-SIM-Free is claiming that it will release to the world a fully software based SIM unlocking solution for iPhone, within the next 48 hours. That's a pretty bold claim, so either its is legit or a shameless grab for traffic. We'll know in just 48...no...make that 47, no wait. I think 45 hours? Whatever, just bookmark this website and keep checking back.

iYawn: Web Apps Just Aren't Cutting it, Apple

I came across this story this morning on PC World, and it stirred my own frustration with Apple. Web apps have their place and, truth be told, developers have found very clever ways to extend the genre, but I and every iPhone user on this hemisphere want the same thing - native application support!

Fire Up iTunes, Kiddies...Update 1.0.2 is Here!

Fire Up iTunes, Kiddies...Update 1.0.2 is Here!

Holy bug fix, Batman! Apple has quietly rolled out another dot release - the second, if you’re keeping track. Per Apple this is a bug fix, not a major software release…sorry fanboys.

I’m downloading the update right now and haven’t yet installed it, so I’ll keep everyone posted should I discover hidden treasure. Frankly my hopes will be more than satiated if Apple resolved the numerous issues I’ve had with Mail.

Happy installing.

[UPDATE] Knock on wood alert: I think Apple may have nailed the Mail issues. So far it is behaving as it did prior to the first update, so thing may be looking up. Back to testing...

iPhone To Storm Europe's Beaches This Fall, Blitzkrieg Ala Apple

iPhone To Storm Europe's Beaches This Fall, Blitzkrieg Ala Apple

Financial Times reports that Apple has managed to secure exclusive contracts with several major European mobile operators in efforts to bring iPhone to France, Germany, and the UK, later this fall.

An official announcement outlining the details of the partnership will be made public at the end of this month, during the IFA trade fair in Berlin. Speculation is running high that T-Mobile, O2, and Orange will be Apple's dance partners, though all three declined to comment (wink wink).

I'm just as happy to see iPhone move beyond US shores as much as any citizen of the world, but the part that drives a MacBook through my heart is the Euro model will include 3G support. *weeping*

Analyst Says iPhone Demand is Strong, But The Product Needs To Get Smarter

Analyst Says iPhone Demand is Strong, But The Product Needs To Get Smarter

Analyst Ben Reitzes of UBS says, based on AT&T store surveys, iPhone demand remains strong long after Apple's hype machine winds down. The firm's target expectation for iPhone shipments in the fourth quarter is 800,000 units, and Reitzes believes Apple is on track to beat its set goal of 1 million iPhone shipments.

Today's published study by UBS yields some interesting factoids. One being that, despite all the naysaying, iPhone has a low return rate. Many skeptics had predicted iPhone returns en masse by frustrated consumers.

Another takeaway is iPhone, at least so far, hasn't suffered a loss in sales momentum. That surprises even myself, as I expected a sharp drop in sales within the first eight weeks of launch, as hype died down and the early adopter market had quelled.

Man Hit By Train While Texting, OMG

Man Hit By Train While Texting, OMG

Here is a grim reminder to all of us that certain situations require our complete attention.

Picture this. A guy texting away with his eyes glued to a cell phone (no, it wasn't an iPhone) heedlessly wanders in the path of an oncoming train. The dude narrowly avoids being struck, turns directions and goes back to texting, then walks straight in front of a second oncoming train. This time he's not so lucky.

Unfortunately this very tragic scene happened earlier today to an unnamed Cincinnati Ohio man. Police have not yet released his identity, or disclosed his injuries, but he at least survived his brush with death and is undergoing medical care.
