Problems and backups.

I post here somewhat frequently (frequently enough to have broken the iPhone Mobile App).

There is a distinct correlation between "I have a big problem"  and  "I have no backup"  

/me scratches head in absolute wonderment.

And it seems there is another correlation between "I have a big problem" and "I use really old software"

Even Windows 7 (yes we have lots left to upgrade yet) is now very long in the tooth.

I have IOS 11.2 and EE notifications (time on the notification) and Calendar reminders are not causing my Apple iPhone SE to crash.

People should probably update their IOS.

Warning Uber users!

And they are using this discovery to make a point that they are cleaning up their act. Interesting.  

Hackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber Technologies Inc., a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year. This week, the ride-hailing firm ousted its chief security officer and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps, which included a $100,000 payment to the attackers.

Upgrade your Question Security!

Your question, your audience. Choose who sees your identity—and your question—with question security.

iPhone X Was removing the home button a good/bad idea? The user has to learn all these new gestures that apparently are not very intuitable because Apple had the need to create a manual for it. What are your thoughts about not having the home button on the new iPhone X?

I haven't had the opportunity to use the iPhone X. However, I think a good UX Design doesn't needs to be explained multiple times . For those who have used it, was it easy to use?

I do not have one but I have seen it on TV in a show that illustrated how it worked.

Now did you know with IOS 11, you can see all your open apps layered on the screen. You can swipe them out of the way or touch the one you want.  The illustration I saw was similar to this.

So my thinking is that it would not be that hard to learn.

Looking for some feedback regarding whether or not to upgrade to the iPhone 8.
Pro: Financially, under Verizon's new billing system, it's only ~$2 more/month for the iPhone 8 compared to the iPhone 7 and as fast as they release new phones, it makes sense to get a newer version, if possible, so that the machine will work well with software releases.
Con: The new charging method of the iPhone 8 worries me. Wonder if the glass backing will make this phone more susceptible to breaks.

I've done some research (like this article) but curious for opinions one way or another to help me in this purchase conundrum.

Verizon's 'upgrades' are not what they used to be.  All you're being enticed to do is to is get a new phone and pay them monthly on their Edge plan.  That's fine.  I don't like two year agreements anyway.  And the phone trade in can be lucrative if you don't mind having an added monthly payment to your bill.
Go to Verizon's website and login to your account.  You should be able to get a nice trade in value for that phone towards an 8.  

I watched the Apple keynote a while back about the iPhone 8.

Start at 55:55
https://www.apple.com/apple-events/september-2017/

'Most durable glass phone in a smart phone ever'
'water and dust resistant'
'better retina display'
'new speakers'
and on and on.

Sounds like a great phone to have and I would be interested in getting one when I have enough money haha.

iPhone X imo won't be worth getting unless you're adamant about using their facial recognition AR heh.  Its so weird to me they went from 8 to 10.  *shrug*

iPhone X is futuristic, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are unnecessary

Apple unveiled iPhone X, its first premium-tier phone, at an event in Cupertino, Calif., on Tuesday. Here is everything you want to learn about iPhone X (pronounced ‘10’ not ‘ex’) and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. https://goo.gl/FejBrS

I agree that the iPhone X is much more futuristic and awesome than the 8, but the 8 is hardly unnecessary. It costs a decent amount less and is still a great smartphone! If Apple only sold the iPhone X, they'd be cutting out a lot of potential customers that aren't willing to spend that much.

Yeah me too.  I was always pretty grumpy with Siri's results in the past.  For some reason I tried it again last week and it worked splendidly so I've been talking to her more.

An article in today's paper headlines that "New Apple Devices get mixed reviews"  

Some bullets:

1. Apple products have gotten bad reviews in the past, only to go on to sell like hotcakes.
2. Most reviewers think the Apple iPhone 8 is OK at best and feel people are waiting for iPhone X. There may be something to that.
3. Most reviewers appear to think the Apple quality is basically intact.
4. Most reviewers thought the Apple visual design was old and Samsung design is cool.

So what will I do?

I had a Blackberry, upgraded to an iPhone 4s, barfed at the size of the 6s Plus and purchased an iPhone SE which is a 6s in an iPhone 5 (not 5s) case.  When it was introduced, it was the fastest smartphone on the planet - BIG battery and SMALL video.

So I do not need to upgrade to iPhone 8. My SE is now running IOS 11 quite happily.  

My phone works. I do not care whether it looks cool. At least it does not melt.

I've consistently been happy with iPhones and will stick with them, but am very appreciative of advice on ways to switch for those that wish to. Having a strong competitor has helped keep Apple from going stagnant!

@Nicholas: Good to know about the curved shadow you mentioned! It's been several years since my Android use experience, so my views are definitely a bit outdated. Glad to hear about the improvements like that!

And yeah... I'm one of those kind of crazy, perfectionist types that's willing to spend more for certain highly polished experiences. Really happy that Google developed Android though, so that there's good competition and price ranges! Having only Apple would be pretty insufferable ;-)

and we are 6 months into our evaluation, and they are working out better than expected!

Whenever I think of tech that was way ahead of its time, the first thing to come to mind is always the Apple Newton. If you're not familiar with the Newton, imagine an iPhone, but existing in the mid 90's. As one of the first handheld computers, it was innovative and had tremendous potential—but a variety of issues such as the size, cost, and technical limitations caused its demise.

Considering the astronomical success of the iPhone, it's clear that many of the Newton's concepts were solid; we just needed to wait 10 years for the technology to be capable of delivering on the vision. Which is why I think it's the poster child for tech that was way ahead of its time.

This guy filed the only formal complaint with the FCC about Verizon.

https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/9/16114530/net-neutrality-crusade-against-verizon-alex-nguyen-fcc

Nguyen's complaints are comprehensive and wide-ranging. He points to Verizon temporarily blocking the Nexus 7, third-party iPhone 6s, and third-party Nexus 6s. He brings up Verizon charging people more for bringing their own phones to the network. He argues Verizon compelled phone providers to disable FM radios. He also mentions Verizon blocking PayPal, OneDrive, Samsung Pay, and other built-in apps.

...

Altogether, he alleges, Verizon has violated openness rules in six different ways, ranging from discriminatory pricing, to limiting customer choice, to simply lying about its network.

If you haven't switched to the latest plan with your carrier, you might be overpaying / being gouged.  Earlier this year I investigated what Verizon had to offer and found out I was paying waaaay too much money.  After collaborating with family members we got 5 of us signed up under one plan and are saving hundreds of dollars a month now.  Family plans save $$$ folks.  And the plan differences between each carrier are not that drastic either.  Verizon and AT&T reign supreme.  Yes, more money, but you have superior service over the cheaper carriers.  Whoever is your carrier, do yourself a favor and take the time to see if you're overpaying and switch plans asap.

I think we're paying about $150 for 3 phones on the unlimited plan, but I'd have to double check.  We could be on some old pricing promo, too.

I think AT&T was also advocating for Net Neutrality's removal, but they didn't spend anywhere near as much as Verizon and Comcast.

If you're an app developer (iOS or Android) and want to add facial recognition to your app for free, then you may want to take a peek at ZoOm. Maybe Experts Exchange will add it to their nifty little app.

Side note: You won't be able to use it to replace the fingerprint reader on your iPhone. I too was excited by the prospect of swapping one biometric for another, but sadly it doesn't have that function.

Interesting... I've seen the rumors that Apple is already planning for the iPhone 8 to use facial recognition for unlocking the phone. Wonder if they'll expose that in their dev APIs for other apps to use and how that'll affect FaceTek.
