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?

European Union’s ‘One charger for all’ starts sampling, coming this year — Engadget

It was way back in summer of 2009 that Nokia, Apple, RIM, and the rest of the mobile world agreed to make micro-USB the connector around which all future European chargers would be built. Since then, most of those companies have transitioned their hardware to micro-USB without further prompting, but the European Union is still pushing ahead with a universally compatible charger standard to make sure everything is nice and harmonized. The details of what’s expected of these chargers were published in December and now the first samples of the new hardware have been produced. The EU expects all manufacturers to have chargers adhering to the new guidelines by the end of 2011 — and if you’re wondering about how Apple, one of the signatories to this agreement, will handle it, there’s a note to say that adapters will be allowed on phones without a micro-USB port. Full press release after the break.
