Re: PICTURE POST II!

Wow, sorry about the wreck Squiggy. I hope it wasn't your fault! Amazing that the car is considered totaled. I guess the frame suffered too much damage (to realign a frame is very labor intensive and thus extremely expensive). Looks like an older Ford.

Check out the new Ford Focus. That company is really making some great inroads with their car models. If you're on a budget, also check out KIA... the Optima is seriously impressive.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I was at my Starbucks today and discussing the iPhone 5 with the Barista. She asked about the panorama, said I hadn't tried it yet. So here is my first panorama, done inside of the Starbucks.

Nice phone, nice panorama! I wonder if that comes with the update for the older models...

^Apparently it takes a lot of processor power to do... don't hold your breath is what I'm saying

But, indeed, that's a very nice photo

Re: PICTURE POST II!

That panorama is nice. I'd be interested in how it works compared to apps like 360 and DMD...

It comes with iOS6. I downloaded the updated the other day. It's a pretty impressive feature, I think. Lots of fun.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

How is doing panoramas a new thing? I saw that commercial for it on TV and wondered how this could be a selling point, since my Android phone that I got a year and a half ago is able to do the same thing.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

While we're talking about iOS6, is anyone else having problems with apps that need updating, but which refuse to finish actually updating? My iBooks and Target apps have been cycling for days, trying to update and nothing I've tried has been able to resolve the issue. I'm about to just delete and re-install them at this point...

I'll have a go and see what it does. I don't mind if it's a bit slow as long as it's done.

Great! I hadn't noticed it!

I had to have a couple of goes on a few of them, but it seemed to do it on the second try... but mine is an ancient 3GS.

One thing it the update did mess up totally was WhatsApp... it lost all the contacts and profiles... then adjusting the privacy setting brought back the contacts but not the profiles... apparently, I would have to uninstall and reinstall to get those back, but it would mean a loss of all messages... so I'll just wait for the WhatsApp update, which is supposed to have a fix to this, I hope it doesn't take too long... it looks so much cooler when messages have an avatar attached. Puts the fun back into messaging... I'm easily entertained, hehe!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I had WhatsApp back in March but wound up deleting it. I only had it to talk to one person, and we parted ways in a less than pleasant manner, so I didn't see the need for it anymore.

I use it for international messaging mostly, through the wifi connection... quite handy!

Double OO, I remember you having issues earlier with your idevice. Sorry, don't remember if its an iPhone or iPod Touch. Have you tried a full reset and restore? I think you may need to, as I'm writing this I think you have an older iPod Touch. Either way, I would go with a restore.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

You remembered correctly about the iPod touch. I wound up just deleting the troubled apps and reinstalling them today after I made my last post about this. Solved the problem easily. Thanks though for the suggestion!
