Facebook's busted, taking the web down with it

Looks like Facebook Connect has gone a crapper, and sadly it seems to be taking a lot of the internet down with it. If you're having trouble getting to where you want to go, logging out of Facebook seems to sort things out again. Not much else is known at this point, other than maybe being dependent on single-point-of-failure networks isn't a great idea. Hopefully they fix this up quickly.

Meanwhile, let us know if you're having trouble, and when/if things start working again.

iTunes match not syncing playlists

We're getting pelted by messages today from readers using iTunes Match, Apple's music locker service, who either can no longer find, or no longer sync their playlists from, to, or with iCloud. Apple's System Status isn't currently reporting any problems, which in and of itself seems problematic, given the sudden influx of complaints.

iOS 6 Do Not Disturb goes on bender, takes New Years off

Proving once again that even the latest, greatest iOS time-based feature can fail in the face of simple change, tons of reports are flying around the internet that Do Not Disturb -- the feature that lets you mute Notification Center alerts during specified, usually nighttime, periods -- stopped working at some point between 2012 and 2013.

Manually flipping Do Not Disturb from off to on again seems to fix the problem, though that might be small comfort when the Game Center trumpet goes off at 4am after you've been out old lang syne-ing until the wee hours.

Increased cellular data use may be linked to streaming bug in iOS 6.0

A bug in Apple's AV Foundation framework, which handles streaming audio and other media for podcast apps, radio apps, and more, could be behind the mysterious, maddening cellular data spikes many users, myself included, have experienced since updating to iOS 6 or the iPhone 5. In essence, iOS just keeps on downloading data, over and over and over and over again, sometimes gigabytes worth at a time.

iPhone 5, iPod touch 5 touchscreens responding oddly to multiple, rapid diagonal swipes

The iPhone 5 appears to be exhibiting odd touch behavior when it comes to consistent detection of multiple swipe events over time. On an iPhone 4S, you can begin rapidly swiping back and forth and iOS will easily keep pace, scrolling the view to match your mad swiping, even as you start angling towards the diagonal. On an iPhone 5, however, while vertical scrolling remains fine, rapid diagonal scrolling will drop off, as though iOS simply tires of detecting the gestures.
