I’ve been waiting to get a good Power Bank so I can recharge my iPhone 6 Plus and my iPad when on the go. I didn’t want a too small Power Bank. I use my iPad quite a lot, so one of the main feature it needed was the ability to quick charge at 2.1 Ampere. After comparing the different choices I decided to get a TP-Link TL-PB10400mAh Power Bank. It didn’t take long before I had to test it out by measuring the capacity and the efficiency of the boost converter in it.
So I gave Apple Music streaming a try. Being able to just search for music and add it to my playlists sounded like a good idea. After a while the recommendations becomes rather good as well, giving me some tips of other bands I might like. But here’s the problem I have with Apple Music. When you sync your music via iCloud, you can no longer sync music via iTunes! And to be able to download music locally from Apple Music to your phone, you must use the “in the iCloud” solution. Catch–22 anyone?
I helped my boss today with a weird problem. In his calendars on his iOS devices, an extra line would show up, displaying the GMT time of the event. The event was placed correctly in the timeline, but it included the GMT time in the text. Naturally I did the obligatory Google search and found a lot of other users with the same problem, but not any solutions on how to fix it.
After checking all the settings on Google Calendar and checked the time and calendar settings, I couldn’t find anything wrong. But after checking out his iPad settings, I realized that the old IT guy had missed a thing.
George Tinari, The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW):
WiFi Map is a crowdsourced tool for finding all of the Wi-Fi hotspots in your area as well as the passwords to certain security-protected networks.
This looks like a great utility when trying to find a free WiFi hotspot. I’m going to give it a go on my iPhone next time I’m out and about in the city. I hate the 1Gb cap I have on my phone by network provider Tele2.
Let’s just hope that Apple doesn’t ban the app. I’ve seen it before…
I’ve started to use the excellent iPhone app Next to keep track of my expenses. My bank has a utility that automatically tracks every purchase I make, but for me, being a notorious money spender, it’s kind of a therapeutic thing to be forced every time I buy something to actually acknowledge the expense and not just buying without thinking. It’s also a great way of keeping track of what kind of things I spend my money on.
