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.

    There was a problem with bum Nvidia 8600 graphics chips, that fail prematurely due to a manufacturing defect. Some Macbook Pros did use these. Think Apple would repair MBPs with the faulty chips free of charge, even though they were out of warranty. Other laptop makers were affacted by the faulty Nvidia chips as well.

    just got a 5 last night, experiencing what I feel is not very good battery life, I see the percentage dropping pretty rapidly in real time (it just lost 3% in the time it took to type this post) and figure it gives me maybe 3 hrs of continuous service - I have had iPhones for years now and this is about on par with the 3GS I just gave back, and the 4S I have overseas before the battery bug was fixed. Should I be concerned? I deep cycled it once and will do again today. I am using it as a wifi hotspot, does this really drain the battery that fast?

    same shitty battery life story happened to me when i first got it. It typically happens after you restore from an old back up.

    the battery life improves dramatically after a couple cycles, so i'd give it a couple days.

    wifi hotspot will eat your battery away too.

    edit: but you know what? FUCK APPLE. FUCK TIM COOK. AND FUCK THE STOCK MARKET.

    If it doesn't improve with a reset I'd take it in. Mine was fine until this weekend. It went from 70 to dead overnight. I'd type an email and lose 2-3%. I swapped it out. The wifi hotspot may have something to do with it but if its idle it shouldn't drop that fast

    Been braving it without a case since I got the phone a couple weeks ago. So far no scuffs. I do plan on getting a case soon, but this does play into my theory that some batches have less durable finishes then others. Perhaps quality control was not up to snuff when they first started producing handsets and it's got better since then.

    BUT ITS APPLE ALL THEIR STUFF IS HIGH QUALITY THATS WHAT THE FANBOIS TOLD ME.

    Also their programs are logically inconsistent. If the back button is in the top-left corner in one page, make it in the top-left (or top-right, whatever) corner in all pages. It's the reason people buy your shitty stuff, because they expect consistency and well-polished products.

    High quality =/= Perfect and without occasion faults or manufacturing defects . :stirpot:


    What iOS Apps from Apple are your speaking of here? I just tested Mail, iMessage, Photos, Notes, Phone, Settings and Podcasts. They all follow the top-left corner guidelines. Admittedly Safari does not, but it makes logical sense that they put these buttons on the bottom considering the top is monopolized by the URL field and search. I don't fault them for this in the least. Is this the lack of consistency you speak of?

    I've moved back to Sparrow from Gmail. I don't care about Push as I turned it off to save battery anyway. The last straw came today after the Gmail app wouldn't let me download a fucking image from an email.

    Sadly, Stitchy had yet to download all your dicpics off the camera at that point.

    Messages click the 'edit' button, then 'clear' is on the top left. I have almost hit 'clear' about a hundred times because of this inconsistency. There's more but I can't think of them off the top of my head, I just know I run into this a lot.

    You wouldn't have wanted to download files that large onto a cellphone anyway. Sounds like gmail did you a favor.

    FYI, you can still restore from an old iPhone back up and your battery life will stabilize after a couple days. I found it worth it to import back all my old pics, contacts, and texts -- sounds like you're working with a blank slate?

    Lolz someone explain to me this behavior.

    I searched for something (specifically, youtu.be -- I wanted to look up a link in a text message). The iphone showed part of the message. I click it on it to, conceivably, see the rest of the message. Instead I get brought to the bottom of the conversation and I have to find the message myself. Now I can only hope the company understands that people actually like to see their fucking results and instantly be navigated to them, so I must be doing something wrong. And no, holding down the result or tapping it twice or with two fingers did not yield any different behavior.
