XGear Folio Carbon Fiber Case for iPad - accessory review

XGear Folio Carbon Fiber Case for iPad - accessory review

The XGear Folio Carbon Fiber Case for iPad is slim, strong, and sexy, with a suede interior and what feels like a darn-near bullet proof outer shell. In sharp contrast to the plush, old-world, executive leather of the Marware Eco-vue, the XGear Folio is sleek, futuristic materials and textures. It adds considerable protection against scrapes and scuffs, if not as much against shocks and drops.

More potential iPhone 4 proximity sensor fixes

More potential iPhone 4 proximity sensor fixes

Still suffering from iPhone 4 proximity sensor problems? Face dialing a family member while on the phone for business? Hanging up or muting with the brush of a cheek? Macworld has a list of things that could help fix it up:

  • Reset "Network Settings"
  • Reset "All Settings"
  • Soft reboot (hold down sleep button)
  • Hard reboot (hold down sleep + home)

Like the clean re-install we mentioned previously, some of these seem to work for some people with the problem some of the time. Hey, it's problem solving in complete darkness, it'll be hit and miss. Macworld's "hunch" is that it's not as widespread as the antenna attenuation problem and that it's most likely a software glitch that will get fixed in the next firmware updated. That doesn't mean, however, that it won't drive afflicted users crazy in the meantime.

Quick Review: Dictionary.com for the iPad

Quick Review: Dictionary.com for the iPad

Dictionary.com is one application that everyone should have on their iPad. Dictionary.com has 1,000,000 words, 90,000 synonyms, antonyms and since it caches everything right on your iPad, there's no need to be connected to the internet to use it. There is also a audio feature so you can ensure you will pronounce the words properly, and a word of the day -- with its definition explained -- to help grow your vocabulary.

The interface of Dictionary.com is very clean and easy to access. The main screen has a search bar for the thesaurus or the dictionary. Once the word is written you have a pull down list of words to choose from. The word is then displayed with the definitions. The words origin, history, phonetic and audio pronunciation are also accessible from this screen. The thesaurus is similar in format, with a simple search bar and pull down menu of words to access.

iOS 4 feature: Linked contacts

16

iOS 4 feature: Linked contacts

When you sync contacts from more than one source (i.e. Exchange and MobileMe, on-device and Google Sync, etc.), and there are duplicates, rather than showing the same contact twice iOS 4 will instead create a single, linked contact. This works on any iOS 4 device, including iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, recent iPod touch, etc.

When you look at a linked contact, the header will show Unified Info at the top so you know it's linked. At the very bottom of the contact it will show you the source of the links (i.e MobileMe, Google). Tapping on the source lets you see the original, non-unfied info from just that source.

If you don't like the idea of your contacts being linked, you can tap edit and hit Unlink. If iOS 4 missed linking a contact that ought be linked, tap edit, scroll down to the bottom, tap Link Contact and choose the contact you want linked.
