iPhone: jumped the gun?

After manually updating my G1 iPhone to the new 2.0 software, it was working, but a few things were a little wonky. Some location based stuff was freezing up, my text messaging was acting funny and my bluetooth devices were paired but couldn’t connect. A little searching found an article at MacRumors saying that the “leaked” software was really just for the iPhone 3G and not necessarily for the older models which should have waited for the official release.

Applying that software fixed my weird issues, and after my phone restarted, I unpaired the bluetooth devices and re-paired them which fixed that issue. Now if only I could stop playing Fullpower’s MotionX Poker, thanks so much Fredo for introducing it to me.

Also, to fully round out my Apple Fanboyism this week, I’ve applied the Leopard Admin plugin to my WordPress installation. As with most admin plugins, it doesn’t change anything, just applies a nice CSS overlay to the usual admin screens. And it’s really cute!

  1. I’m a loser who still loves her Blackberry and wants to know how you use WordPress.org but is a tremendous fail.

    @What Liz Said: Don’t let the Apple hordes hear me say this, but you’re not a loser for loving your Blackberry. Without those things, there wouldn’t have been the inspiration for a new type of smartphone. Besides, I still know iPhone lovers that long for actual buttons and tactile feedback from their phone. 😉

    @What Liz Said: At the risk of a potential backlash from certain fanboys of the hardcore sort, if the Blackberry works for you then by all means keep using it. I personally never liked the Blackberry (I have one for my day job.); I find them clunky, awkward and unintuitive, and this was before anyone had any official inkling of iPhone.

  5. Wow, thank you for the info about the Leopard Admin plug-in. I downloaded it and I LUV it!! 😆

  6. Oh…and about the BlackBerry discussion… I gave my BlackBerry back to my boss last week. The Exchange function works great for me and now I only have to carry around my iPhone. Before it was my cell phone and the company BlackBerry since I work in IT. I save the company $40 a month by no longer needing my BlackBerry and there were no additional costs to me. Yes, the lack of a tactile interface is desired, but I’m getting used to the touchscreen more and more.
