Post It Plus 1

Even though I have all the world’s technology at my fingertips, I still reach for my Post-It notes on occasion for scribbling down reminders. Sometimes, they are stuck to my computer screen. Sometimes, I fold them in half and stuff them into my wallet. No matter how advanced the digital age becomes, it seems like the Post-It note will never be obsolete.

Now, with Post-It Plus, you can transform your physical sheets of colorful sticky paper into digital ones. Plus, you can organize and categorize your notes and share them with others.

Apple HealthKit Apps Begin Appearing in App Store

HealthKit

After a tumultuous couple of days, Apple was finally able to push an update to iOS 8 that fixed the fairly egregious error with causing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners to lose cell service and Touch ID. By this morning, you were probably already prompted to update.

Within a few hours of the update going live HealthKit created apps have started to appear in the App Store. Now, apps that use the HealthKit software development kit (SDK) can send information to Apple’s Health app so you can track such things as diet and exercise without having to open multiple apps.

Apple Makes iPhone More Secure, Police Claim it is now the Tool of Choice for Criminals

iOS 8

To add to the poor publicity Apple has been dealing with for the past week, Chicago Police’s chief of detectives is speculating that Apple’s new extra-secure mobile operating system, iOS 8, is like a magnet for pedophiles. First people are accusing Apple of collaborating with the NSA to give away user information. Now people are complaining because iOS 8 is too secure. This company can’t seem to get a break.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Speedball 2 Evolution

Speedball 2 3

In the late 1980s, cyberpunk was all the rage. Movies like RoboCop, The Running Man, and Total Recall graced the big screen. Around that same time, a sports-based video game called Speedball made its way onto gaming consoles. The game takes parts of ice hockey and handball and mixes it with hand-to-hand combat against opposing teams.

Speedball 2 Evolution is an iOS version of the popular sequel, which originally launched in 1990. Players can dive into a full career campaign season or spend a few minutes on a quick match.

NBA’s L.A. Clippers to Ditch iPads After Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Buys the Team

Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer poses for a portrait in Culver City, Los Angeles

I’m not surprised that Steve Ballmer is going to be using Microsoft products with the L.A. Clippers and frankly I don’t think it will make any difference with how well the team performs, but I can’t find a single way that the switch will help the Clippers win a championship. I respect Ballmer for being a brand loyalist and I think he will be good for a franchise in need of a responsible leader but I hope he doesn’t expect all of the players and coaches to give up their iPhones.

Earlier this week, word began to spread that some iPhone 6 Plus owners were experiencing issues with the durability of their device. We’re not talking about crushing it with a sledgehammer, dropping it from six feet up, or even putting it through a blender. Apparently, some iPhone 6 Plus have noticed that their devices have bent from such sedentary activities as sitting.

Apple has suffered a number of setbacks since Sept. 9, when the company’s live stream of the media event where the iPhone 6 was unveiled performed poorly. On the day that preorders were supposed to be available, Apple’s own online store was down for the first 20 minutes. Then, yesterday’s update to iOS 8.0.1 disabled iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cellular service.

So, it is no surprise that Apple is making good on replacement for bent iPhone 6 Plus devices, even though it is 100 percent user fault. They are treading water in a pot that is verging on boiling over. Good PR is the company’s best medicine right now. Read More »

Apple Releases Instructions to Uninstall iOS 8.0.1 After Major Bug, Fix is in the Works

261 Touch ID

Yesterday, Apple released an update to iOS 8 intended to squash some bugs, including HealthKit apps, third-party keyboard issues, and missing photos from the iPhoto app. Within minutes of the download going live, Twitter was buzzing with news that the update disabled cellular networks and broke Touch ID on a variety of devices.

Apple pulled the update shortly thereafter. However, hundreds of people had already finished the update and were now holding a useless device in their hands. Last night, Apple posted a support document, explaining how to downgrade back to iOS 8 and promising a new update within the next few days.
