Sometimes, when I'm in a hurry, I curse the iPhone's touch screen. All
that typing on those itty-bitty keys with no tactile means of quickly
and accurately ensuring I'm tapping the "i" and not the "o" or "u," can
be a hassle.
When you're bumping out messages on the fly as you walk, sometimes the
iPhone screen is just plain aggravating, and you envy those Blackberry
users and their quickety-quick thumb typing. Yes, the touch screen is
beautiful and lets you do so many cool things, but sometimes your hands
are a little too shaky or sometimes you're just having a clumsy day.
Well, the good people at Mobile Mechatronics have you covered.
We discuss last week's iPod event and what Apple released and what they didn't. We still pine for an updated Apple TV, and MMS for the iPhone begins a slow rollout. Let's just say we're not surprised to be excluded from the lucky few to be picked to have MMS early.
While there was a collective nerd groan after Apple's 09/09/09 "It's
Only Rock and Roll, But We Like It" failed to announce the mythical
tablet, old rumors and dreams die hard. Of course we never expected the
coming and going of any single date without a tablet to act as a rumor
killer. Which means that we can begin looking beyond the holiday
shopping season and on to 2010.
While it's only two years too late, AT&T has decided that for a
select few users they would add MMS functionality two weeks early.
While the official date is set for September 25th, it's possible the
carrier might attempt a slow-roll-out of the new service just to let
steam off ahead of the launch.
The latest update to iTunes is such a drastic change that many users
are scratching their heads trying to figure out where everything is and
how to work it.
Sure, if you just want to hit Play, you're good
to go, but if you're looking for the alleged ringtones Steve was
talking about, or how to share your music via Twitter and Facebook,
it's not that cut and dry.
We jumped right into iTunes and
hopefully, this list of tips will help you get back to enjoying your
music while basking comfortably in the new features of iTunes 9.
