HOW TO: Stop your iPhone 7 / 7 Plus’s screen from vibrating when playing audio

Monday, October 3, 2016

I’m not going to go into how underwhelmed I’ve been with iOS 10 and the iPhone 7 Plus here, but let’s just say among the more annoying “features” of the latest round of Apple updates is the incredibly annoying vibration of the screen when playing music out of the iPhone’s speakers. You may recall one of the few selling points of the iPhone 7 and 7 plus is the enhanced “stereo” speakers on the device. Unfortunately, with great volume comes great vibration, and it just feels...

How To: Get rid of Safari’s Spinning Beach Ball

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

There’s dozens of reasons as to why you might be getting a spinning beach ball when visiting certain web pages in Safari, and there are also dozens of solutions you COULD try. I know this because I tried them all while trying to figure out why web pages in general, but Yahoo’s Pro Football Pick ’em and Amazon.com in particular, were giving me more beachballs than a British Rock Festival. Here’s what I did to solve MY problem: With Safari open, go to the top of your screen and click the word SAFARI Choose...

Amazing iPhone-themed Christmas Display makes you thankful you don’t live anywhere near this guy

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Warning: If you are prone to seizures, or if you have one of those “Keep Christ in Christmas” bumper stickers on your car, you may not want to watch this. For everyone else however, Scott McGregor’s 2015 iPhone-themed holiday lights are a truly wondrously nerdy feast for the eyes.

Review: flatOUT™ LED Lightning by Scosche (That’s right, I’m going to review a lightning cable.)

Scosche flatOUT Lightning cable

If you’ve been a loyal Apple supporter/upgrader, odds are by now you have probably owned 4-5 Apple devices that utilize a Lightning cable to charge. And if you are a SMART Apple user, you have never ONCE paid the $19.00 (formerly $25) Apple charges for its cables, when dozens of 3rd party accessory makers sell theirs for about half that. As overpriced as Apple’s cables are, I’m about to go against every cheap bone in my body and recommend you consider dropping $19 on a... Read More

Well, looks like you’re buying an Apple Car after all Assuming, that is, you’re one of those people who hates the “driving” part of driving your car. After months (or has it been years at this point?) of rumors swirling around the the possibility of Cupertino producing a self-driving electric car, Apple has reportedly hired former Tesla employee Jamie Carlson, a man whose speciality is “autonomous vehicle firmware”. That may not be enough... Read More
