Apple and iOS suddenly became relevant again

When it comes to Technology, I see myself as above average interested. That is also why, like my wife become feed up with looking at the same clothes in her wardrobe all the time, I get fed up at looking at my same home-screen andi icons all the time. My problem has up until now been that even though my old iPhone 4 gets the job done, and I have invested quite a bit of money into the platform, I am fed up with the way it looks, I am fed having to enter settings to turn on my Bluetooth.

I was so fed up, that i gave WP8 a test run, and even though a great system, it is for me still to immature, and I was missing features I am so used to on the iPhone, like quick scrolling to the top of a page. So I ended up back with Apple, but still bored.

Not any more. In my opinion, iOS 7 is from a design point of view, the perfect mix between WP8 and Android. Flat, but not boring, adaptable, but still user-friendly. The control centre solves my biggest problem with iOS the cumbersome access to often used settings, and the access to spotlight from any home screen is a fantastic move.

iCloud integration is better, but I still don’t think I will be using iCloud Key-chain as my main password manager, it’s just not flexible enough. Make an app that can extract the info from the key chain with a master password, then I might consider it. But for Wi-FI passwords and the likes. It’s fantastic.

OS X 10.9 is moving in a different direction than Microsoft. Apple are still focusing on the desktop, and even though I like Windows 8, in my opinion, a separate desktop os and a unified mobile os still works better than trying to do it all with one single OS.


Re enabeling Java in Safari

After Apple removed Java from OS X I have been struggling with Safari. Firefox works perfectly with Java, but when trying Safari the webpage just tells me that I don´t have Java installed.

What has happened is that after the 6.0.3 Safari update, Java has been inhibited. To solve this problem, visit if the webpage says inactive just press the gray text to reenable Java problem solved.
