Getting up at 2AM for the iPhone 5

In retrospect I”m glad I did since the iPhone 5 sold out in about an hour by all reports.  I actually ordered 2 iPhones–one for myself and one for my daughter.

My daugher”s Android phone”s poor battery life is to blame as the main reason for her getting a new phone.  That and the fact that all Android phones have large (4.5″ or larger) screens and she wanted something smaller.

My order was complicated by the fact that I am not eligible for the full subsidy since I got the 4S last October.  AT&T wanted to charge me $299 $250 = $549.  I wound up just ordering a phone using my wife”s upgrade for $299.  I talked to AT&T today and they told me that I”d just need to activate the phone on my phone #.

Just back from 2012 360|iDev

This was my first time going to http://360idev.com and can say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was much different than WWDC (which I went to in June).

I just saw this post covering the conference:

Of the sessions the blogger mentions I also went to the session on iOS Security by Jay Freeman and can attest that it was excellent.  I also wanted to attend the session by Gustavo Ambrozio but was in a Core Bluetooth session at the same time.
