Your iPhone is like you.Sometimes it’s in trouble and needs professional help. To be honest, it happens rarely and in 5 years of using my Apple devices it never happened.

If it just coughs …

Restart


If it is faced with circulatory problems …

Restore


If some internal organs are malfunctioning …

Recover

Note
You’ll need a computer for this surgical procedure. If you don’t have a computer, well, you don’t have a computer but you can borrow one from a friend not living in the Post-PC-Era or go to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for help.

One last thing …

Don’t apply methods you learned from your grandmother e.g. leg compress, alcohol (I mean for sterilization), heavy sweater, or improved cooling. It’s likely that you’ll lose the warranty and Apple Care professionals will become crazy.

A home-made ruler

18 03 2017

If you need the measurements of a small object but your only companion is your smartphone you might remember Apple’s slogan “There’s an app for that. That’s the iPhone. Solving life’s dilemma one app at a time.“. With millions of more or less powerful little helpers replete with useless ad you’ll always find for free what you are looking for.

But wait a second.
You can do it yourself.

1 In the Internet look for an image of a ruler which at least shows up to 122 mm.

2 Open the app PHOTOS and rotate the ruler in a vertical position. Crop the image so that the ruler shows 0 mm to 122 mm for a Plus model or 0 mm to 104 mm for the 4.7″ model.

3 Zoom it so that it exactly fits into your screen.

4 Take a screenshot. It’s your ruler and you didn’t write any line of code to make it work.

Ta-da.

If you are the proud mother or father of children facebooking the whole day, ask them how to measure objects without a specialized app. I hope they’ll find a solution otherwise it could become difficult for you to raise interest for being creative instead of consuming facebooks.

Note
Well Steve, not all dilemmas can be solved with an app.

Thanks for reading.





Pyongyang Time

15 08 2015

Kim’s iThings need an update

North Korea has switched to a new time zone, turning its clocks back by 30 minutes to mark its liberation from the Japanese at the end of WW2. Bells rang out in the capital Pyongyang at midnight on Friday as the new time zone came into effect.

  

Note

Before being colonized by Japan in 1910, the entire Korean peninsula was 8.5 hours ahead of GMT.

Don’t forget to manually update your appointments with Kim Jong Un in the Calendar app. He hates people not being in time. Thanks.
