As you may recall, I've been "reading" the fourth George R.R. Martin novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series -- A Feast For Crows -- as an audiobook via Audible. When I signed up for Audible, I... Continue reading

They really need to get on that. It's been a complaint for far too long.

We were sharing an account 100% until iOS 6, I believe. That's when it became necessary for her to have a secondary one for data syncing and whatnot. But for purchases and other itunesery, we share one and she doesn't have to punch in her password for updates. The only reason we keep it the same is so we can make purchases one time. We buy a book once and it's on two iPhones and two iPads. Yay!

What do you mean about the auto updates? App updates? Because Katie and I share an account for iTunes on our phones and she and I both have auto update working. Like you said about Kindle, Comixology has the content on their own servers and iTunes is just the viewer conduit. But since Comixology was bought by Amazon, it may be a competition thing instead of just an end runaround like you say. I forgot about that fact.

I put the unused apps in a folder as well, but the existence of the folder still bugs me as does the space it takes up of my iPhone's capacity.

It would be rather mind-blowing, wouldn't it?

I'm afraid of a high capacity iPhone like that. I think it might die too easily. No logical explanation behind that fear. Just there.

Seventh Son is fantastic and I'm not upset about receiving it. I just hate being the owner of a mismatched album and case. Anal retentive thing.

I don't know if I'm going to do it again because of the burnout I've been getting. Not a good thing.

Very strange how spammers work. And thanks on the Nathan photo.

Apple keeps on announcing new features for iOS. In fact, just last month they announced the impending release of iOS 8. It's taken me a while to get around to actually reading what all is included and, to be honest,... Continue reading

The good thing is that I owned neither of those Maiden albums. So it's still a win.

Ohhhh and the side shelves fold under! That's a key selling point for me. I want something that takes up less profile on our patio. How is a two burner setup for cooking at slightly different temps?
