Apple – iOS 4.3 Software Update

Now I’m no Apple fanboy by any stretch of the imagination. But, I have to admit that now that I have used one for work over the past few weeks, and nutted out some of the better functionality of the iPhone, there was always a niggle that some things need to be addressed. It appears that Apple had the same feeling as I did and has been kind enough to correct some of them for me.

The world’s most advanced mobile operating system keeps getting better. Download the free iOS 4.3 Software Update and get new features that let you do even more with your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The software update is free. It’s easy. And you can download it right now.

Or so I thought. Upon first reading the details I was ecstatic, Personal Hotspot, iTunes Home Sharing and a boost to Safari were all good reasons to update. Except that I don’t use Safari. I don’t stream to my iPhone. And most of all, the real kicker, the update I was really keen on, Personal Hospot is for iPhone 4 only. I mean, come on. Why iPhone 4 only? How hard could it be for the Apple kingdom to backport that little piece of tech to the 3Gs? It leaves me a little empty. I am the only one to think that?

iTWire – One app can make a difference

I find it really heartwarming when I read about simple solutions to problems that can cause the greatest of issues. A bit thanks to Charmian Gaud for her post on iTWire.

I have a hearing disability and despite very expensive hearing aids I find it almost impossible to hear what’s being said at public meetings. I’ve tried the induction loop at theatres, and although some hearing is possible it is still an enormous struggle.

During the next couple of weeks I must attend a government advisory committee and I know hearing will be nigh impossible. I’ve visited the site to test the induction loop and it’s like the theatre – OK, but not really good.

So what does an Apple fan do when faced with a problem? She searches for an appropriate app for her iPhone.

soundAMP R ($5.99) is the most wonderful app for anyone who is hard of hearing. I am gobsmacked by how well it works. It seems like sound is magnified fourfold, and it has a range finder so you can ‘zoom in’ according to the distance from the sound source.
