Toilet Texting Is On The Rise, But Its The I-Pad That Gets The Job Done

February 2, 2012

With today’s smartphones, more people are taking their work and personal lives wherever they go — even to the toilet.

A new study of mobile phone habits shows 75 percent of people have texted, emailed, used apps or surfed the web while nature calls.

More than 90 percent of people between 28 and 35 will return a call or text while sitting on the toilet.

One in five men joined a conference call while sitting on the toilet, despite the possibility of people on the other end hearing noises or accidentally hitting the FaceTime video conferencing button.

The survey by the marketing agency 11mark shows 16 percent shop while toileting.

The survey indicated toilet texting was popular but its the I-Pad that gets the Job done.

DC Passes Silicon Valley, Now Has Highest Household Incomes, Obama Brings The Honey

October 22, 2011

Federal employees whose compensation averages more than $126,000 and the nation’s greatest concentration of lawyers helped Washington edge out San Jose as the wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area, government data show.

The U.S. capital has swapped top spots with Silicon Valley, according to recent Census Bureau figures, with the typical household in the Washington metro area earning $84,523 last year. The national median income for 2010 was $50,046.

The figures demonstrate how the nation’s political and financial classes are prospering as the economy struggles with unemployment above 9 percent and thousands of Americans protest in the streets against income disparity, said Kevin Zeese, director of Prosperity Agenda, a Baltimore-based advocacy group trying to narrow the divide between rich and poor.

Silicon Valley creates the Buzz… Obama creates the honey…

Bono Attends OWS Anti-Corporation Rally and Steve Jobs Memorial.. Whats With That?

October 17, 2011

STANFORD, California (Reuters) – Silicon Valley luminaries, politicians and celebrities were among the several hundred people at a private memorial service for late Apple Inc co-founder and tech visionary Steve Jobs on Sunday.

Guests arrived in dozens of black limousines and walked up a path lighted by hundreds of large white candles to Memorial Church in the heart of Stanford University’s campus. The event was heavily patrolled by police and security and walled off to the public.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, who took the helm of the world’s largest technology corporation in August when the industry icon declared he could no longer lead Apple, walked up to the chapel with a man dressed in the garb of a Buddhist monk.

Maria Shriver, estranged wife of former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and U2 frontman Bono stopped to exchange words with others in the courtyard before heading in.

Apple is Due A Toyota Beat Down..Creating More Jobs Losses

July 17, 2010

Jobs admitted that the iPhone 4 has more dropped calls than its predecesser, the 3GS, but said it’s just a difference of one call per 100. He also said complaints to AppleCare over reception issues have been few, and the phone has a return rate of 1.7 percent — lower than the 3GS and industry standards.

Despite admitting there might be an issue, Jobs said some of the problem seems to be media  hype. He said just 0.55 percent of iPhone users have called AppleCare to report antenna problems while there has been a return rate of 1.7 percent.

Time for Apple to take the Toyota beatdown.. Press and Congress seem to hate success.. 

 

 

Free iPhone 4 Case: Apple To Offer FREE iPhone Bumper To Solve Antenna Issue

July 16, 2010

Apple CEO Steve Jobs responded to weeks of criticism over a faulty antenna in Apple’s iPhone 4, saying that the phone’s flaws are no worse than other smartphones. Still, he said Apple would give a free case to all iPhone 4 owners to fix reported signal problems.

“This is life in the smartphone world,” Jobs said. “Phones aren’t perfect.

“We haven’t figured out a way around the laws of physics yet.”

So what’s the solution? Jobs says already released iOS 4.0.1 Thursday, which fixes the issue of how the phone calculates signal strength.

And if you already bought an iPhone 4 or you buy one before Sept. 30, you will get a free bumper to cover the phone.

So if you place your Iphone in the new cell phone bumber  cover this should eliminate future problems.. Cell phone covers come in red or black..

Eye View Business, Steve Jobs Squeezed By Iphone 4

July 13, 2010

The biggest problem with the iPhone 4’s antenna isn’t whether it’s faulty or fine, it’s Apple.

Apple has so far avoided the serious issue of whether the iPhone 4 has a legitimate hardware problem and instead obfuscated the issue by first telling users how to hold the new iPhone and then blaming a software glitch. As a result, Apple now has a big PR headache on top of an obvious hardware flaw.

If Apple admitted the hardware flaw, its PR problem would start to go away. But it hasn’t, and news organizations including Consumer Reports and Engadget continue to prove the antenna is faulty. Worse, countless consumers have weighed in on the matter … and that’s Apple’s biggest problem. Steve Jobs sqeezed by his phones..

Steve Jobs Says Be Careful How You Hold The Iphone 4,Consumer Reception Unclear

June 28, 2010

Apple boss Steve Jobs has responded to complaints about the new iPhone 4 losing its signal by telling users to ‘just avoid holding it in that way’.

Angry users have complained that the $500 phone’s reception suddenly plunges to almost zero when they simply hold it in their hand.

Dozens of videos have been placed on YouTube showing the iPhone 4 losing signal the moment the metal antenna that surrounds the edge of the new device is covered.

Jobs issued his bizarre advice as he responded to an email from a user on the Ars Technica technology news site who had complained about the sudden loss of signal.

In an astonishingly blunt response, Mr Jobs replied: ‘Just avoid holding it in that way. All phones have sensitive areas’. Hold the antenna more towards the middle and not along the bottom. Can you hear me now? Iphone 4 users can be sensitive too..
