After many hours of my time and the time of others we have discovered that iTunes can’t in some instances be synced with a 64-bit windows7 machine. This I have come to find out isn’t that rare. We also discovered that if you run “msconfig” you can turn off all services but the apple ones and you will be fine with the syncing of you iPhone.

chromium OS

Chromium os is a great operating system, however, I have had limited time with it so I will not be giving a “full” review of it today. It has actually surprised me in many ways that I didn’t anticipate such as: it uses an actual content browser that you can view files and thing on like a flashdrive or external HDD. It has a very need customizable “apps” tab that can be a little tricky to get used to at first but it has really been a nice thing.
    Finally it has one really big flaw, it wont do anything in the gui without being connected to the internet, you can however hot ctrl+alt+t and get to the terminal to do some things quickly. I hope that in the actual release it will have at least a basic text editor built into the OS, and maybe a desktop (for when a time an internet connection can’t be found).

I have been waiting for a really long time for the iPad to be released I sadly have to say that I was really disappointed with the results. IT’S A big iPhone people what’s the big deal? I have actually looked into buying one just to do a review so I can actually get into the thing, it seems that if I touch it I won’t be able to say no.

            So what do you think do you think it needs a, user seeable, file-system, a camera, a sync cloud (instead of syncing with iTunes), what do you think the iPad lacks?

Apple Support

Apple Support has actually been a better experience than I thought it would be when I started out with the two months of working to get my iPhone to sync with my computer. After we tried countless things we ran msconfig and turned off all the services except the iTunes background processes, that thankfully fixed the issue. I still, however, have no idea which program is causing the interference.
