    Sold another iPhone Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    iPhoneSold another iPhone.

    • July 2010: Paid $299 for an iPhone 4S (+6.5% FL sales tax, +$18 AT&T upgrade fee, plus a case - got a so-so one right away for $30 or $35; the free one I got arrived a few weeks later and was better; I'm using the case for my 4S so it doesn't really count anyway.)
    • January 2012: Listed on eBay for $295, sold for $300 exactly
    • eBay keeps $27.70 - 9% + 0.35 + another 0.35 because I had to list twice because the first buyer flaked on me
    • $300 sent to me via PayPal, they keep $9 (3%)
    • $263.30 so far, plus I need to pay for shipping
    Remember: when buying an iPhone, you'll pay $100 for each storage increase but you'll only see about $50 of that at resale time. If I would have had a $199 base iPhone 4, I probably would have gotten about $250.

    General NewsJon worked at Apple once upon a time, on projects ranging from the iPod to PowerMacs, then he retired to a beach in Mexico, then he came to Palm and tried to do a Steve Jobs-like turnaround by introducing the Palm Pre. It didn't work out, then Palm was bought by HP, then HP killed Palm. Now, at the end of his agreed-upon 12-to-24-month stay with Palm following the buyout, he's gone. But he plans to come back someday to do... something.

    iPhone is KILLING on Verizon Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    iPhoneMG Siegler quoted the best line from Tom Krazit's piece: "In the first quarter that Verizon Wireless was on board with Apple for an iPhone launch event, the company sold 4.2 million iPhones, accounting for more than half of the 7.7 million smartphones that its customers purchased in the fourth quarter." More than half. Absolutely amazing. Another way to read "more than half" is "sold more than all other smartphones combined."

    Backups Are a Pain Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    MiscellaneousData is not safe if it exists in only one place. The only feasible way to back up a large hard drive is with another large hard drive. If either drive--main drive or your backup--dies, you need to replace it ASAP because as long as one is out of commission, there is only one good copy of your data. Therefore, for every hard drive you own, you need to have a) another drive of equal or greater capacity, and b) enough money in the bank (or available credit) to replace it when needed.

    Mac OS XI appreciate that Mac OS X will warn me the first time I run an application downloaded from the Internet. However, I don't like that a) you can't turn it off and b) it warns about things that aren't applications. The worst is when I download a .zip or .tgz with a bunch of PHP scripts--OS X will warn me about every single one. Luckily, this can be stopped with a quick trip to Terminal: just navigate to the folder with the scripts and say xattr -d com.apple.quarantine *
