Ok, I was a little cranky when I posted my extreme displeasure with Apple and my iOS4 update. I’m still doing a little research as to what to do with the iOS4 update and my lowly 3G issues. Jason D. O’Grady wrote an article for ZDNet mentioning the issue of slower performance could have to do with RAM issues.

I previously blogged that part of the problem could be due to insufficient RAM. The iPhone 4 ships with a whopping 512MB RAM, while the iPhone 3GS with 256MB. The lowly iPhone 3G, on the other hand, comes with only 128MB — one fourth of what ships with the latest model.

In its compatibility statement, Apple says that iOS 4 works with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G. Adding that “not all features are compatible with all devices. For example, multitasking is available only with iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.”

Translation: it will work on the iPhone 3G but don’t have high expectations.
This sounds totally plausible with the issues I’m having, but the situation is still sucks.

Anyway, back to more positive blog entries!

Oh Apple, how you have made me oh so very sad. I updated to the 4.0 software the other day. My phone is one of those ancient 3G’s. I can’t do some of the fun things Tyler can on his 3GS and since the update, I am experiencing battery dumps and the system freezes constantly. Rebooting? Takes minutes now. Silly me didn’t think to research any potential issues but now that I have, I read that I am not alone with these issues. Some say it is a conspiracy to force older iPhone owners to purchase new phones. Sorry, I paid full price for mine and I haven’t had this one long enough to get my discount.

I really believe they should come out with an alternative service pack that will allow 3G owners to revert back to the previous software version. I don’t want to have to take it in and have AT&T revert it to factory settings. For further software additions? If the older technology cannot support it, please prompt me that an upgrade is not appropriate for my handheld.

Apple needs to fix this. Once again, I am losing confidence in the company.

If I’m missing something that I can do on my own, please tell me!

Ha!

OH DANG. My writing fail. Those are the ones that broke. You should be able to see the break on the corner.

End of an era.

I’ve been saying for years that I’m ready for new glasses. I finally used them as a face shield one too many times yesterday…

I have another pair of lovely vintage frames I purchased several years ago, at the Briluseum in Amsterdam.

Michael has epoxied my glasses. It beats the blue painters tape, which wasn’t doing much of a decent job anyway. Fingers crossed pleased!

Totoro!

I’ve been a fan of My Neighbor Totoro for a long time. A group of friends even fantasized of doing a lift sized Cat Bus costume, long ago. Imagine my glee last night seeing a Totoro plushie while watching Toy Story 3.

This print was posted to Pinterest and I just had to snag it for the new studio. }:)
