Software Update to Fix iPhone 3G Performance Issues is on Its Way





iOS4Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, confirmed that the new software update iOS 4.x will appear in the near future to correct performance problems on the iPhone 3G, which works on iOS 4.x. He confirmed it while answering to the email he got from a user who was disappointed with the iPhone 3G performance running on iOS 4, describing it as "dog slow".

Although he did not mention a specific version or date of its release we can guess that he was specking about iOS 4.1, which is going to be released next month, when iTV (Apple TV) and the next generation iPod touch will spotlight.

Walt Mossberg Reviewed iPhone 4



After using two iPhones 4 for six weeks Wall Mossberg finally reviewed the newest Apple’s handset.

So, one phone was obtained by Mossberg personally, while the second was provided by Apple. Walt found that iPhone 4 works better than iPhone 3GS in those areas where there is a "strong AT&T coverage", but when it comes to weak coverage areas iPhone 3GS performs better, because it drops less calls and 'no service' status can be seen rarer. That became a reason for Mossberg to not recommend iPhone 4 with its limited AT&T data plans to people who "live, work or travel" in areas with poor reception signal.

Walt also found that the 'death-grip' issue is not a problem as it causes signal bars to fluctuate only and even to rise in some cases.

New Wall Dock Accessory For An iPad



1

If you remember, few weeks ago we posted a video describing how you can attach an iPad to the wall with a Velcro. Well, for those, who didn't like the design side of the idea here is a new accessory created by Arodsin Redningar, a Swedish designer. It's called iPad Capsule and it's a wooden frame that coated in a protective white paint.

It is specially angled and you can’t turn it 360 degrees, but it's surely looks good.

At the moment there is no information about the price or availability.
