1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I bought extra lightning cables for travel, etc. but I would need an adapter for the integration with my BMW. I'm not sure if they make a lightning cable yet, but if they don't I'll need the adaptor until they do

    My BMW connect through a USB so that any phone can be connected to it, I haven't tried since it connects directly via bluetooth but shouldn't it work with the regular lightning to USB cable that came with it?

    Yeah, the cable in mine is 30 pin to USB & 3.5 mm, so I think I'd need an adapter, unless a generic or Apple branded cable (not the BMW one) would work differently... Does Bluetooth work for music also? I thought it was just for the phone stuff. Not concerned for the short term though, because Sirius covers everything I want to listen to for now, but just thinking ahead

    I haven't tried connecting the music via bluetooth but it should work with iphones.

    I have a nano that I keep in the car all the time for music and also have free 2-yr for Sirius and never even use it.

    I have never streamed music. I ma kind of anti-streaming. I cannot just "casually" listen to music that I don't know. For me to get into a band I have to digest one album at a time and listen to it many times and such. I take my music listening very seriously it isn't just background, or zone out noise for me.

    Maybe there is a link because I have no scratches on my phone either.

    The blue messages are so much nicer to look at. Green is mostly a ghastly color.

    FWIW, the system in the Camry does not recognize the lightning connector.

    Patrick - you use iTunes to get music onto your phone?

    That's what you get for driving a Camry.

    Yes.

    Any of you guys use the CNBC Real Time app? Why is it taking them so long to update it so it can fill out the entire screen? Unbelievable..

    I think I tried it and realized it wasn't that good.

    Why do you think it's not good? As far as I'm aware, it's the only iPhone app that displays stocks in real time. It works perfectly fine, but it's about goddamn time that they stretch out the app to cover the entire screen!

    I may have downloaded a previous version. I'll download it again and check it out. I keep TD open on my machine and the other news sites.
