Updating iOS

Apple released iOS 6.0.1 which supposedly fixes some stuff.  Decided to update my iphone.  I guess I'll find out if this is a good or bad idea. 

I'll wait a few days to update my ipad, just in case.

Hockey is Back! - Quick update at the end of the post

Yes, hockey is back!  The NHL finally got their act together and decided maybe they should play a few games this year so we don't forget they exist.  However, it will be a short season only 48 games long.  Might make things much more exciting though since there isn't half a season of "ho-hum, we have time to play hard later" games.

Because of the short season, the online broadcasting through NHL GameCenter is only 1/3 the price of last year's regular season viewing package.  On television they are pushing it like mad.  I figured for $50 I could try it out and see if I liked it  and not be too irritated if it didn't work out.  We have an Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone so 3 options to watch. 

NBC Sports tends to show far more games from the Eastern division of hockey.  We are in the viewing area for the Bruins, so we don't get much chance to see Western division teams play unless NBC Sports carries the games… mostly they don't.  This makes the GameCenter very appealing.  

Since I shelled out the cash, I figured I would review it. 

The rest is below the fold for those who could care less about sports.

I need a larger purse

Duct tape... don't leave home without it!  You never know when it might come in handy.

****

CES is on.  The geek show to end all geek shows.  Ubuntu has a demo of a new phone, but they won't let anyone touch it.  I hope they keep a close eye on it, lots of geeks would love to get hold of it to play and they might not want to give it back. 

****

While it's maybe a nice thought, I'm pretty sure I don't want to watch the Super Bowl on my iphone... even though it goes everywhere with me.  Of course I know lots of kids probably think differently.  Ah me... to be an old fogey.

****

And of course the new Windows 8 doesn't like to play nice unless it's being used with a touch screen... so if you have an older computer, what can you do?  Buy a pen for it.  And we all know how well we keep track of pens... right?  Yeah. 

****

You are now up to date on the latest tech gadgetry.   

BTW if you have a yahoo email account... be aware it's got a big bug in it at the moment.  Please be careful.

Do Not Disturb!

It seems the lovely feature, Do Not Disturb, on iOS6, has a bit of a bug in it. If you run it on a schedule, it turns on, but doesn't turn off (go back to normal mode) unless you do it manually.

People started complaining about this yesterday. It happened to me today. Over at TUAW, Kelly has Apple's response...

DND bug: Apple will only disturb you till the 7th

Consider it an extended holiday.
