According to a report on Yahoo News, quite a number of users reported Sunday morning that instead of the time on their iOS device springing forward 1 hour, with the switch to Daylight Savings Time, it actually fell back an hour, putting their clock two hours off. If you have this problem, the simple fix is to either restart your phone or switch it to airplane mode and then back.

As is evidenced by the fact that I write for iPhone Life, I am a fan of writing, whether it's for a site like this or for one of my many independent film projects. Not only can it be fun, but it's a terrific way to exercise one's mind. When @brianhere asked me via Twitter to review the new app Screenwriting, I jumped at the opportunity. Little did I know that I was about to experience what is probably the best writing app on the entire App Store.
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Paul Croft, the man behind the amazing game studio known as Mediatonic. The studio is responsible for many terrific games, not only on the iOS platform, but also on the PSP and PC. I've always been a fan of the studio's games - in particular, I absolutely love Must.Eat.Birds.
It seems that the mobile device wars are really beginning to heat up and all of the players are beginning to make allies and take sides.
Google has a new friend in RIM who has decided to support Android apps for their upcoming Playbook tablet. Today Nokia announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft for Windows Phone 7 development and rumors are swirling about Apple developing cheaper devices for mass appeal. I have my doubts about that last one though.
Over a week where reports of Ipad 2G have been intensifying, it is also a stark reminder of Apple’s overwhelming dominance that news of an Iphone jailbreaking breakthrough (pun intended) of the iOS 4.2.1 has probably generated more forum interest than any of Nokia’s products in the past 6 months.
The JOOS Orange is super durable and waterproof, it reliably delivers power where and when you need it. They say it works in real-world light conditions (low light, in the shade and even light rain). Living in Iowa, I'd like to test that out, as we get weeks of very low light. But note, you can plug it in to charge it up. They say it charges at least 3.5x faster than any other portable solar charger at the same price.
And currently it's the ONLY solar charger for an iPad!
Nuclear weapons hold a somewhat unique attraction in our society. They are at the same time the most destructive force imaginable, and yet many of us are drawn to it, not unlike moths to a light bulb. I have always been simultaneously drawn to and repulsed by nuclear weapons, and so I was intrigued by the iPad ebook, How To Photograph An Atomic Bomb, which takes you up close and personal with atomic weapons, and even takes you behind the scenes in some of the efforts to record and film nuclear explosions.
