Here Tomorrow: The White iPhone

“Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting!” says the chronically tardy White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. The same could be said for another elusive, mythical creature — the White iPhone.

Newsflash: Apple says the white iPhone will actually be available tomorrow. Curiouser and curiouser! Folks have been waiting for ages, their hopes crushed until now.

“The white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and it’s beautiful,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we’ve worked to get every detail right.”

Ummmm. Every detail? Like encasing it in white plastic instead of black? Apparently, it was much more complicated than that, according to some press reports.

The white iPhone needs “more UV protection” than the black one, presenting some substantial “material science” challenges that surprised Apple’s product development team.

So the White iPhone is finally here and UV-protected to accompany you on all your hot summer adventures. Will you succumb to its charms?

4 Tips & Tricks for iPhone

Do you find that some days the battery life doesn’t seem nearly as good as the day before? You may have left an application running in the background. To make sure an application is not running after you are done with it, press the Home button and then lock your iPhone. All active apps will stop running.

Ever find yourself wanting to use a ‘real’ computer but you don’t have an internet connection? With Internet Tethering, you can use your iPhone as your modem.  You will have to call AT&T or visit their website to enable Internet Tethering on your account so it’s best to set this up sooner rather than later. Be sure to check how many gigabytes of data are included in your broadband package—you might find yourself with an overage charge sooner than you would expect! Read the rest of this entry

iPhone 4 Owners Having Problems with Facebook

A slew of complaints have recently been posted on the Facebook app reviews section of the iTunes store. It seems iPhone 4 users are complaining that their screens are freezing when trying to use the Facebook app. Several people have had to reinstall the app several times and the problem keeps happening over and over again. Another complaint is that iPhone 4 users that have been able to open up their Facebook app are having trouble uploading videos and photos and editing their profiles.

Even though it’s a free app, people are becoming frustrated and are hoping all of the bugs get fixed quickly. If you’ve experience the same problems or different ones using Facebook on the iPhone 4, you can let out your frustration here as well. Here’s hoping it all gets fixed real soon!
