So, you updated to iOS7.1?

iOS7.1, could have been better?

iOS7.1, could have been better?

The iOS 7.1 addresses some bug issue for iPhone 4, which is a nice touch from Apple for previous generation device.

The press & talk Siri feature is ok, but kind of like no rocket science.

For CarPlay, no car to play with yet.

Month view for iCal, big deal, sucks.

So, what you say?

MobileFest Moving Forward

The gang

The gang

The meeting for month of March took place last Saturday, March 8, 2014, the same date which the #MH370 reported missing.

Went with a heavy heart, I am sure all of us too during the meeting.

During the meeting besides the usual of looking at all the gadgets, as well as good company, we had a short discussion about the way forward for MobileFest.

For everything that comes in a group, the fun and good time could only lasted thus long.  So, to be honest, I need to get constructive feedback from all whom loves MobileFest.

I have been to few user groups, and none of them lasted longer than 1 year, some only few months.  So, for the love of the friends I had met in MobileFest, as well as the love of the technology and gadgets, this discussion is critically important.  Read more ›

CarPlay, Replacing iOS in the Car

CarPlay_Honda_Homescreen-PRINT

We have heard so much about how Apple is planning to have its iOS in the Car.  Looks like the plan to do so may not be able to materialise just yet.

Having iOS in the car, sounds like a great idea.

So looks like Apple has hit some walls while speaking to the automakers.  Bet most of them would have said no, and some how related to iOS Maps.  Yep, the wonky maps which may drive the car owners to where he or she not suppose to go.

On top of that, a car is not like a phone, or PC which we could replace easily.  Once an OS is installed in the car, it stays there.  More so, the technology evolves so fast.

So, for time being, just go with having the iPhone (5S, 5C and 5) to connect to the car entertainment system, just like what we already doing now.  Perhaps, without the Maps.  But, we will survive.

The press release from Apple.  Read more ›
