I don’t often have major gripes about software updates but this one has really gotten under my skin. The iPhone OS 3.1 update was officially released on Sept.9, 2009. While it brings a handful of good features it also broke a rather important pre-existing function. Anyone who uses smart playlists in iTunes knows how great that function can be to customize playlists to your liking.

It’s now officially one week later and I have spent quite a few hours with the new Motorola Motorokr S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headset. During this time I used them no different than any other headset I own and use it on a regular basis. So starting with the fit of the headset after prolonged use I feel comfortable to say that they are fantastic. At no time did I feel any fatigue from wearing them for 2 hours or more as I usually do.

They are not going to fit every ear but when they do it makes listen to music quite enjoyable.
Back in January 2009 I wrote My $0.02 for 2009. My quick and dirty thoughts on what was coming for the next iPhone. It was nothing very specific at all because I really didn’t feel it necessary. Anything new Apple puts into the iPhone to replace current hardware is going to be an upgrade anyway with the exception of previously non-existent hardware. So I’m not going to add anything but merely see if the current hardware changes that much or will it be more software upgraded with the new iPhone OS 3.0 firmware update. In either case Monday’s WWDC should be fun to watch. WWDC (World Wide Developer Conference) starts at 10:00am PST in San Francisco which makes it: Continue Reading
