IOS 4 bug on 3GS?

I think there’s definitely a bug in IOS for where you intermittently cannot hear through iphone. People can hear you but you can’t hear through the earpiece. You have to use Bluetooth or headphone and headphone is shown as an option even when not plugged in!

I’ve gotten this twice – yesterday, on my old iPhone 3GS and today on my brand new one.

I had an awesome experience dealing with Apple today

I had an awesome experience dealing with Apple today at the brand new Georgetown Apple Store location. My phone wouldn’t work in iPhone mode (only speaker or bluetooth) and it had “Headphones” as an option even though they weren’t plugged in.

They gave me a new phone.

Satisfied? You bet!

me and my Dad

Me and my Dad (by shawnblog)

OK, so it’s Father’s Day. I called my Dad earlier. It’s been a long time since I’ve made a visit and I’m looking forward to doing just that soon (maybe end of summer), but I can’t decide if I want to drive or fly.

I used to love driving up there because I would go see my grandmother (Dad’s Mom) on my way through New York, but she passed away. I have an aunt and cousin there still, but we’ve never been all that close.

Also, I can’t go through NYC without stopping in and spending way too much money. Plus, there are casinos in Connecticut. I haven’t gambled in a long time and I don’t really want to, but driving right by Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods always makes my mind wander.

Anyway, I probably should have taken THIS week off of work to go visit. That part of Maine where my Dad lives in the summer in an bug infested mess. Driving takes like 14 hours, so I need a week off just to recover after driving there and back.

I guess I need to plan a flight for late summer!

must be losing business .. every other coffee shop has it and has had it for years

Yeah, I’ve always wondered why they were so lame about wi-fi at the buck. It is about time. Hopefully not too little too late.
