What’s new in iOS 4.3

Several beta’s have been released from Apple for the new iOS 4.3, but what’s new? This post explains it all. 

Photo Booth

Photo Booth is coming to iOS devices with all those great effects you have come to love in Mac OS X. It will most likely be on the iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4 and the new iPad.

New Graphics Processors

Within the iOS 4.3 system folders, there is a new graphics processor driver from Imagination Technologies. Hinting at a new powerful graphics engine for the iPad (since the iPad has a bigger resolution)

No more iPhone 3G

iOS 4.2 was the last version for the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G. So no more updates for those two devices.

Personal Hotspot

iOS 4.3 will bring the Personal Hotspot feature to the iPhone and iPad since AT&T gave it the go ahead.

Hardware orientation lock comes back to iPad

iOS 4.3 brings the option for iPad uses to change the use of the hardware switch. Either mute the sound or use it as orientation lock.

New settings for Messaging alerts

You can now set whether you want 3, 5 or 10 message alerts in the Messaging settings. You also have the option to set whether or not you want to see a preview of the message.
That’s all the important changes we wanted to talk about. I’m sure more will come along soon but that’s it for now.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
