That device genuinely raised the bar. It was a watershed in the design and interaction model of a portable computing device. No mobile device company has designed a mobile phone or tablet device since then, without some level of reference to and comparison to the iPhone.
Model S is the product of a company lead through the rare talents of another visionary entrepreneur, Elon Musk.
When looking at this vehicle, it becomes immediately clear that this product – and its design team – will have a comparable impact in the transport sector over the coming few decades.
‘The best camera you have is the one you have with you’. It’s a popular phrase in photography. More often than not, the camera I have with me is the one in my iPhone 5s.
I’ve been getting better (I claim!) at getting good (occasionally great) results out of it, and some friends asked me to write down some of the tips and tricks I’ve learned, that can help to get the best out of this tiny little camera.
I hope that as you read this, the reasons why I was keen to invest in AvPlan should become obvious. That decision was driven from two strong passions of mine – technology and aviation. AvPlan represents a brilliant intersection between those two realms that presses all the right buttons for me 🙂
Like many other iPhone users, I upgraded to IOS 7 pretty much as soon as it came out.
There’s a subtle bug that seems to be impacting many people who upgraded early in the piece, such that iMessage has lost its internal ‘permission’ to use your mobile number as the source of iMessages transmitted over the Internet.
People aren’t necessarily picking up on this issue by themselves, because their problem isn’t actually visible to them. It is only visible to (and only a problem for) the other IOS users that they exchange messages with. It just lurks there, driving people batty, with necessarily having an obvious underlying cause.
I’ve written this post to explain the issue and how to fix it, mostly so I can tell my own friends about it without repeating myself constantly. I hope its also useful for others in the same way!
