Download podcast directly on your iPhone…. WAIT A MINUTE! Posted on: November 24, 2008 at 11:30 am Posted in: Blog,Thoughts

Remember Episode 95 when we talked about the downloading podcast directly on your iPhone feature which is expected to be released with firmware 2.2? Apple released the much awaited iPhone firmware 2.2 update on 20th Nov. I installed it on my iPhone the moment I book out from my reservist.

The first feature I tried is the podcast downloading feature. That is one of my biggest wishlist for iPhone. So I went to the iPod applications, click to 65 bit podcast (Shameless plug) and at the bottom of the page is feature to “Get More Epsiodes…”

I click on it and the iPhone switches over to iTunes and…… *BANG*.

“Cannot Connect to the iTunes Store. The iTunes Store is not supported in this country”

Brilliant. Simply brilliant. Which means those who are living in countries without iTunes Store (like Singapore) still will not be able to download podcast directly from their iPhone. Let’s hope its just a minor oversight.

Other bug fixes and enhancements on firmware 2.2:

  • Enhancements to Maps
    1. – Google Street View
      – public transit and walking directions
      – display address of dropped pins
      – share location via email
  • Enhancements to Mail
    1. – resolved isolated issues with scheduled fetching of email
      – improved formatting of wide HTML email
      – improved stability and performance of Safari
  • Podcasts are now available for download in iTunes application (over Wi-Fi and cellular network)
  • Decrease in call set-up failures and call drops
  • Improved sound quality of visual voicemail messages
  • Pressing the Home button from any Home screen takes you to the first Home screen
  • Preference to turn on/off auto-correction in Keyboard Settings

    65Bits Episode 96Plus: Mooooooo… Posted on: at 8:34 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

    We actually planned to take a break this week when we came across this story that we just could not resist talking about. Seriously, you have got to hear it. I’m not even going to spoil it for you. All I’m gonna say is that it is udderly insane, and has something to do with very creative cows. Nuff’ said, and enjoy.

    Mooooooooooving swiftly along,

    Daniel, NTT, Farinelli and Hisham

    P.S.: We’ll be right back to our normal program next Saturday at Geek Terminal!

    Write naturally and still touch on a Tablet PC Posted on: November 19, 2008 at 5:11 pm Posted in: Blog,Thoughts

    I’ve been a Tablet PC user for more than 3 years now, and I really like my Tablet PC, even until today. As much as Tablet PCs are now nothing more than “an extra feature” compared to being a “special class of notebooks”, I still think that Tablet PCs are perfect machines for students. There are many kinds of technologies that make Tablet PCs work, each with it’s pros and cons, but none that brings all the advantages together.

    There’s a lot of technical jargon in this article that I will attempt to explain in great detail to what it is, and how they work. Just thought I’d warn you first. Oh, and all this is based on what I’ve read up in the past. I’m no expert in this, so if you are, please tell me if I made something up!

    65bits Episode 96: Daniel is crazy about CS4 Posted on: November 17, 2008 at 2:13 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

    So Adobe just launched CS4 in Singapore last Friday, and now Daniel just can’t stop talking about it. To be honest, if you’re a heavy user of adobe products, you’ll be as impressed as Daniel was. Fortunately, if you’re not, there’s always the show notes to help you skip Daniel’s “omigosh, omigosh!”s to hear about stream computing, mobile operating systems and how to have video conversations right inside your browser, because we’re all more geek than designer. NTT more than anyone else.

    Oh, and “rm -r /” to you too!*

    Daniel, NTT (welcome back!), Farinelli and DK.

    65bits Episode 95: Touchsmart has a fan club?? Posted on: November 9, 2008 at 2:32 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

    This week’s recording was a race against time because we weren’t at our usual location, and had a dying laptop and no power plug. This week’s recording also successfully proved that we’re in the pre-Christmas lull, that equally magical window of the year where 3 weeks worth of stories turn out to be less than one week’s usual worth. Well you’ll see the other extreme real soon. HP released Touchsmart’s codes to developers, Windows 7 is shown off at PDC and it looks promising, and Starhub malu-ated as they fail to deliver their declaration of all Singaporean telcos selling the iPhone by the end of this year.
