Bug In Kindle Update For iOS Deletes Users’ Entire Library, Amazon Warns Users Not To Update
Amazon yesterday updated its Kindle for iOS app, which works across iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, to version 3.6.1. The update was meant to fix a few bugs as well as the registration process. Instead, that update seems to be wreaking havoc on bookworm-style iThing owners who watched as their Amazon digital libraries and saved settings were erased before their eyes. Here's just a taste of the reviews on Amazon's iTunes page:
DODOcase Releases Handsome Handmade iPhone 5, iPad and MacBook Sleeves
The venerable DODOcase is expanding its stately collection of iThing cases to include sleeves. These cases, DODOcase calls them Durables, are handmade in San Francisco and is a departure from the company's traditional products. But they seemingly have the same heart and soul. Each case is hand sewn using army-khaki canvas, leather and then lined with a poppy orange felt interior. Plus, since they're from DODOcase, you can trust that they'll last.
Winter Is Coming: The Great iPhone Cable Shortage Of 2012
How many iOS charger cables do you own? You know, the 30-pin connector that's been packaged alongside every iPod, iPhone and iPad for as long as I can remember. Personally, I own seven. Each of my friends and colleagues has (at the very least) more than one of these wires. Essentially, if you've owned an iThing for more than a few months, especially an iPhone, you probably own more than one cable, too. But the next-gen iPhone, and its 8-pin mini port, will change more than the iThing accessories industry. Sure, there are millions of docks, charging cases, etc. that will have trouble with this transition. But Apple will no doubt sell a connector for backwards compatibility, probably for around $30. But the real issue isn't the accessories ecosystem, it's the ubiquity of the current iCable model.
