iPhone Problems With Exchange 2003 After Upgrading To iOS 4.2.1

 

microsoft exchange

iPhone users are reporting issues with Microsoft Exchange 2003 after upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 that was released by Apple last week.

The problem is compounded by the fact that there are actually two different issues affecting the same feature.

The first bug, and the more serious of the two is that calendar events that are created by users or the ones they have accepted disappear from the iPhone for no apparent reason. This means that users relying on ActiveSync could end up missing meetings, conference calls etc. The weird thing about this is that these events are still visible in Outlook or via the webmail interface.

Users are also reporting issues while accepting or declining an invitation. Users are reporting that they get an error message informing them that your message cannot be sent. While this bug might not be as serious as the first one, this could prove detrimental to people who work in fragmented groups and use this feature to track each others schedules and event plans for the day.

Apple iPad Makes It To Time’s ‘50 Best Inventions of 2010′ List

ipadHere’s one more reason to brag about your iPad. It’s part of the elite list of products that were featured in TIME magazine’s list of “50 Best Inventions Of 2010”.

The iPad is revolutionary in terms of being the first color Tablet with multitouch and full fledged web browsing ,  but this is an elite list, which makes the honor even bigger.

From Time: "How does Apple keep out-inventing the rest of the tech industry? Often, it’s by reinventing a product category that its competitors have given up on. In theory, the iPad is merely a follow-up to such resoundingly unpopular slate-style computers as Microsoft’s Tablet PC. But Apple is the first company that designed finger-friendly hardware and software from scratch rather than stuffing a PC into a keyboardless case. When it calls the results “magical” and “revolutionary,” it’s distorting reality only slightly. One analyst says the iPad is the fastest-selling non phone gizmo in consumer-electronics history."

The second invention to make it to the “Technology” section of the list also has an Apple connection. It’s an iPad app called Flipboard that is featured as the second entry in the list of the top inventions of 2010. Flipboard presents various social media network updates in a magazine style layout. This means you can look at those Facebook pictures and comments in a completely different way! Congratulations Apple!

It was a great jammin’ FFF!

 

 

On October 8th SoundWorks had their fun FFF, Free Food Friday! It’s a way of supporting the Houston creative community with Free Food Friday* networking lunches.  Menus for past events have included everything from good ole’ fashioned homemade hamburgers to Mexican, Spanish and Portuguese-inspired dishes.  This FFF was a Jamaican-themed menu and guests got to suggest their favorite Caribbean tune and sing a Bob Marley karaoke tune to win the new iPod nano. All of the lunches are prepared  by Houston chefs.  Dwight Cook of SoundWorks says, “It’s very cool to see graphic designers, writers and filmmakers make personal and business connections. It’s about making the Houston community smaller by getting to know each other.” Winner

Congrats to karaoke winner JaTerria Brooks who took home a new iPod nano for her rendition of Bob Marley’s “We Jammin.’”  Click here for a photo gallery of the event.

* FFF translates: free lunch, invitation only, creative community enjoying creative cuisine. We believe in building this Houston network of  professionals through the art of conversation, a shared perspective, a plate at a time.  FFF is by invitation only, so if you want to attend you might have to twist an arm at SoundWorks.

The next FFF is November 12th and details are to be announced soon.

Will Facetime rule your world?

facetime It will, I think, if Apple has anything to say about it. A recent report on the Apple Insider claims that Apple could be breaking its traditional annual product cycle for the iPad. According to sources, Apple is already in the "advanced testing stages" of the second generation iPad, which could be launched as early as the holiday shopping season this year. That would mean that the new iPad would have a camera on the front and back to enable Facetime.

Mac4Ever insists that these are rumors and need to be taken with guarded skepticism. Nevertheless, the latest speculations appear strategic and we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple indeed launches the next generation iPad shortly and brings FaceTime to Mac OS X and Windows. What do you think?

Promote your expertise with this search engine

Social networks are great for following your friends’ daily musings, but rarely do they help grow your income. I think we all want to leverage social media to help our business efforts – now there is Weedle.

Thrillist - Weedle

Like a LinkedIn/Yellow Pages hybrid, Weddle’s a new platform from Ireland to help users effectively market their professional expertise through mutual contacts which leverages an implicit “element of trust.” Users fill out a description of their vocation (plumber, video producer) and location, back it up with a mini resume and optionally a photo/video of their “skills in action”, then one imports contacts from myriad accounts including Gmail, LinkedIn, and AOL. Users searching for hires (done by skill set) will have their results prioritized based on individuals with whom they share contacts, allowing them to vet you by a trusted source should they choose; if interested, they can reach out.

Once the process is over, both parties can go back “rate” one another and/or comment on the experience.
