Google Maps is available for iOS

Google Maps is finally available for iOS. Which is nice, because Apple Maps is kind of horrible. Not as bad as some people would say, but definitely deficient in several key areas.

iCloud Requires Mac OS X Lion

Well, so much for using iCloud to sync my iPhone and MacBook. Apparently it requires Mac OS X 10.7.2 or higher, and I'm still using Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

So none of those fancy iPhone to Mac features will work for me.

I suppose I could update to the latest version of Mac OS X, but right now, I'd rather not. I'm waiting to upgrade my MacBook to a newer version some time later. But not quite right now. Right now I'd rather just wait.


iOS 5 Mini Review

I've only been playing around with iOS 5 for a few hours, since the update took forever thanks to the infamous "Error 3200," so this is just some first impressions.

What I Like

Android's Notification Center

Notifications now appear at the top of the phone, and you can swipe down to view them (and various widgets) at any time. So that's nice. And exactly the same way it works in Android.


I know I'm not the only one this is happening to, but it's still amusing:

Apple's website returning a HTTP 403 Forbidden error

Update: Just to be clear, this happened immediately after the iPhone 4S was announced (October 4th, 2011), but before Steve Jobs's death (October 5th, 2011). Note the time stamp.
