What if you Could Shower with your iPhone?

The user twoeggplants on Etsy.com has made it possible. What a crazy, awesome idea! The iPhone soap is said to be about the same size as the real deal.

iPhone Soap

“It has the black button at the bottom and the “screen icons” in its “flat screen”. The top layer of the soap is dark grayish black and the bottom layer is a slightly lighter shade of gray. I must say that this is one of my coolest creations and each feature is meticulously created.”

It weighs about 3 ounces and the two that are available come scented either Mojito or Tropical Mango. You can even customize the fragrance or have none at all. Honestly perfect gift for a friend who loves iPhones, or even yours truly. šŸ˜‰

Another iPhone Scare

Oh yes, I thought I’d lost my iPhone again! I haven’t had any problems with my iPhone since the scare with the volume. Until I tried to set my phone in my iHome and it just went blank. I took it back out and it wouldn’t respond to me trying to turn it back on.

The first thing I did was try to plug it in just to see for some reason the battery went dead, since it was sort-of on low juice. Nothing happend.

Then I plugged it into my computer, and just iTunes picked it up, but it said that it could not read “” iPhone. I was panicking at this point.

Finally the turning point, I had it plugged in and the held down the top button and home button at the same time for 15-30 seconds. Viola! The Apple logo popped up and I was back in business!

I hope this helped!! Good iPhone-ing to everyone!

What the iPhone is lacking

I could not tell you when the next update will be arriving, but I know there are some major features the iPhone is lacking. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my iPhone, there are just some features that I would like to see come out in the updates.

  • Multimedia text messaging. The iPhone takes wonderful pictures and the option to send them in email is available but why not text messages?
  • Video capabilities. Wonderful pictures but no video?
  • An easier way to find contacts. I haveĀ a lotĀ of contacts and there is no way to put them in categories, like personal or business contacts. What if a last name is forgotten?
  • Instant messaging, like an AIM application.
  • Java in Safari. This definitely annoys me quite a bit. You get on a site and then a little blue box with a question mark pops up and I can’t go anywhere.
  • Cut and paste option for text.
  • Games.
  • Voice dialing or voice recognition.
  • 3G network to speed up the internet when not connected to Wi-Fi. Edge is a little slow for my liking.
  • GPS in Google Maps application.

And a couple of other things I would like to see when iPhone 2.0 comes out.

  • Removable battery.
  • Expandable storage.

iPhone is improving (Update 1.1.3)

I downloaded the firmware update 1.1.3 for my iPhone and read up on the new stuff, but there was one thing that was not mentioned.

The ability to drag and drop icons on the home screen. All you have to do it hold an icon down for a couple of seconds, then as you will notice the icons will begin to wiggle. When they wiggle you can drag and drop themĀ where you would like, and you can have up to 8 pages on the home screen to put the icons.

The ability to add bookmarks from Safari to the home screen. When you’re viewing a page and you click on the “add bookmark” feature you can now choose to add the page to your bookmark list, to the home screen or email the link.

The ability to send an SMS message to multiple people. Now when you’re sending an SMS you can choose multiple numbers or contacts to send one to.

The ability for the iPhone to hold 75,000 SMS messages instead of 1,000. I text way to much, and I noticed that I had not had a warning to delete some of my text messages. I realized that they had bumped up the limit, not just a little bit but to 75,000. I still wonder why there is a limit to begin with.

The Google Maps application now can find your general location by using the towers. You can do this by going into the application and then clicking on the circle in the lower left corner. When you do this a circle pops up on your screen giving you your general location.

The Google Maps application now can display the hybrid map view. To view this go into the application and then click on the eye in the lower right corner. Once you hit this screen you can select from the following options: map view, satellite view, hybrid view and list view.

Rented movies can now be added. To do this all you have to do sync them to your iPhone like you would music or other videos.

My iPhone Story

I’m already on my second iPhone, wasn’t it enough pain to have toĀ anticipate the arrival and then having to wait to actually be able to go get it?

The reason I’m on my second is actually my fault. It must have slipped off something because the volume button was pressed into my phone. During a phone call or while listening to music the volume would just random go down. I took it to the nearest Apple Store, and I was dreading having to either pay the whole amount over again or having to wait weeks to get a new phone. Well, boom! It’s okay, I’ll give you a new phone this time. The first time I haven’t had a problem replacing a broken phone! Then I was worried about loosing all of my information, my photos, text messages, you name it. I knew most of it would be on my computer when I got home because I had synced it before I left. I was under the impression that I would loose all of the “normal stuff”, like text messages, my internet history and bookmarks, and my saved map locations. I got home and hooked the new one up to my computer and everything was synced back on this phone! What a relief!

Now, I’ve had this second phone for 2 weeks and I’ve already dropped it. I know, probably not a good idea. They’re supposed to be durable, right? (Unless they take a spill straight on to the volume buttons) I thought I had broken my phone Continue reading
