    Flashpacking through Oceania with a Rented SIM from iPhoneTrip.com

    I just returned from another major trip with my iPhone (and iPad in hand). This is my 3rd trip with a rented SIM from iPhoneTrip.com and 4th major Flashpacking trip.

    See my reviews from previous iPhoneTrip reviews:
    Flashpacking into Africa with a Rented SIM from iPhoneTrip.com
    Flashpacking through Europe with iPhoneTrip.com
    Flashpacking through North America without iPhoneTrip.com

    On this trip, we traveled to Auckland, Christchurch, and Queenstown in New Zealand, and in Australia we traveled to Sydney, Ayers Rock, Cairns, Port Douglas, Daintree, The Great Barrier Reef and Brisbane.

    Once again, the rented SIM from iPhoneTrip.com worked flawlessly. My girlfriend though she’d go without renting a SIM, but gave up along the way and had a SIM delivered to us at our first hotel. It’s nice to know that they can ship fast anywhere in case there’s a problem, but still I’d highly recommend ordering your SIM to arrive before you leave.

    See my previous reviews to see how thoroughly pleased I was iPhoneTrip.com, for cost savings, connectivity and ease of use. Really, I can’t recommend renting their SIMs highly enough. And more importantly, traveling with the full connectivity it gives you will drastically change the way you travel.

    That being said, I have to say that connectivity in general in Oceania is pretty bad. Bad, as in “worse than in the United States”. Data rates are low, and charges are high. Far fewer free WiFi locations exists and those that do have data caps on them. Even 5 star hotels and resorts that we stayed at not only charged for WiFi, but had very slow data rates, and often connections timed out or they capped your connections.

    As a result, renting a SIM becomes much more beneficial. I found myself giving up on WiFi in every place I traveled to and went back to 3G for speed and connectivity improvements that the iPhoneTrip.com SIM gave me.

    Australia is HUGE, and being so big, it’s not reasonable to expect great connectivity throughout the country, but ironically some remote locations we traveled to had pretty decent coverage. For example, bus and helicopter trips around Ayers Rock were just fine with connectivity, but suburbs of Sydney could have weak or dead spots.

    Don’t get me wrong, most places you’d travel to in Australia and New Zealand have good enough coverage for email, navigation, and simple web surfing, but for someone like me who uploads and downloads HD video for work, the difference between the incredibly good connectivity in Europe and the poor general connectivity in Oceania was significant and worth pointing out.

    Also to be clear, this is a general connectivity issue through the places I went through in Australia and New Zealand. I wouldn’t be surprised if other places were much better. The iPhoneTrip.com SIM can only be as good as the wireless carriers in the areas you travel to, and the SIM did a great job of switching carriers along the way making the iPhoneTrip.com rental SIM your best option, especially since WiFi simply isn’t an option in many places for demanding users.

    Intel’s Ilene Aginsky Demos Intel’s Personal Cloud Technology at CES 2012

    Intel always has one of the best booths at CES. This year, I wasn’t able to attend, but in the background of this video, you can see the NAS: Storage for Home and Small Office video playing at the booth that Connected Social Media produced. Ilene Aginsky is interviewed in this video on The Plulse Network and demos Intel’s storage and personal cloud technology (very cool stuff).

    Butch Stearns catches up with Ilene Aginsky of Intel to see how Intel is helping consumers create their own personal cloud to quickly and easily store and share files across a network.


    Flashpacking through North America without iPhoneTrip.com

    I just returned from another major trip with my iPhone (and iPad in hand). Unfortunately, I didn’t rent a SIM from iPhoneTrip.com.

    See my reviews from previous iPhoneTrip reviews:
    Flashpacking into Africa with a Rented SIM from iPhoneTrip.com
    Flashpacking through Europe with iPhoneTrip.com

    My girlfriend and I did a “Noreaster”, traveling through North East America in October/November 2011. We visited Chicago, Niagara Falls, Montreal, Vermont, New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Iowa. Since this was mostly in the United States, we didn’t rent a SIM from iPhoneTrip.com.

    In Canada, this was very unfortunate. WiFi sucked, and roaming rates were insane. Fortunately we didn’t stay in Canada long enough for this to be much of a problem, and it was during the weekend, so I didn’t have to work much.

    So why this review if I didn’t rent a SIM?

    Because one can’t pass an opportunity to point out how far behind our wireless carriers in the United States are from elsewhere in the world. This trip was made with my iPad (on Verizon) and my iPhone (on AT&T). Unlike Europe where I had connectivity everywhere with my iPhoneTrip.com SIM, there were HUGE areas around the Northeast with absolutely no coverage on either Verizon or AT&T.

    My point here isn’t just to bash the state our our wireless infrastructure in the United States, but also to point out that when traveling abroad, you can rely more on your mobile technology than you can in the US, making the thought of renting a SIM that much more compelling.

    Siri Wish List – Top Things I Wish Siri Would Do

    1) Read information to me.
    I’d love to hop in my car and tell Siri to read the top news headlines of the moment. Ideally, it would be nice to be able to go to a configuration panel and select the types of headlines I’m interested in (News, Politics, Sports, Tech, Etc…)

    2) Allow 3rd party plug-ins.
    Let apps like Shazaam plug into Siri, so I can just ask, “Who plays this song?” or “What song is this?” and have Siri tell me and provide me the option of buying it and putting it in the playlist I want. Many other apps could have plugs-ins around a specific subject area. If you have more than one app in a given subject area, your could prioritize one as the default, but then prefix the question with the name of the app for the second.

    3) Allow the changing of settings.
    I’m dying over hear with my unjailbroken iPhone 4S and its lack of SBSettings. It would help if Siri could “Turn off WiFi” or “Reduce brightness”

    4) Read my email.
    It’s strange that Siri will read/write text messages, but while Siri can write an email message, it can’t read one. It should be able to search emails and read specific ones.

    5) Allow for corrections.
    When taking dictation, it may interpret a word incorrectly. When that happens, it should allow me to say, “Edit, replace tomato with tomorrow”.

    What would you like to see in Siri?


    iPhoto 9.2 Crash Fix – And Show Hidden Folders Tip in Lion

    iPhoto 9.2 was crashing like crazy for me. It’s always been very reliable, but then when I enabled Photostream, all hell broke loose.

    It turns out that the problem was with 3ivxVideoCodec.component.

    Worse, it turns out that this little bugger had been causing problems with various apps for years as I’ve seen a history of people claiming problems with iPhoto, iTunes, Aperture, iMovie, QuickTime, and possibly other apps.

    The Stupid Little Blog, shows how you can search for the file 3ivxVideoCodec.component and remove it, but some people have left comments saying that they aren’t finding it.

    Apple made finding files much harder in some ways under Lion.

    One annoying thing they did was to hide certain folders. However, MikeSel.info has a page showing how you can unhide the hidden folders/files in 10.7 Lion.

    The short answer is to use the following terminal command to show hidden folders/files:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

    And the following to undo this (hide folders/files that Apple thinks should be hidden:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO

    Restart, or re-login for the changes to take effect. Alternatively you could Option-Right-Click on the Finder icon in your Dock and select Relaunch.

    If you have the FTP application Transmit, you can use that to both browser hidden folders/files, and delete them. Other applications may allow browsing/deletion of hidden folders/files as well.

    Once you’ve revealed your hidden folders/files, you can go to:
    (That’s the top level of your system hard drive -> Library -> QuickTime)

    From that directory, delete 3ivxVideoCodec.component (if present).

    Restart your Mac.

    You may be able to relaunch iPhoto with everything working ok, but I’d recommend holding down the Option-Command keys while launching iPhoto and then let iPhoto repair/rebuild your library and thumbnails.

    Alternatively, or if the repair/rebuild fails, you can restore your iPhoto library from Time Machine. You do archive with Time Machine on a regular basis don’t you?
