How to Use an iPhone 5

No, this is not a step-by-step guide on using Apple’s latest phone but rather, just a quick story about my officemate who happens to the owner of a new iPhone 5. He asked me to help him familiarize himself with his new phone. Since I use an iPhone 4 and the hubby uses an iPhone 5 (which I get to borrow once in a while), I thought I was qualified for the task and said yes immediately. Actually, it was the hubby who had configured his phone so he could start using it.

So, for our first lesson, we started with texting. When he got used to the multi-touch user interface of his phone in sending messages to his family and friends, we went on to transferring music files from YouTube to his phone. I had him download this cool app from the AppStore that lets you do just that and more. He liked it. He said he’d download more music files and a couple of movies, too, for listening and viewing at home.

Webhosting Trouble

I just found out this morning that a part of this blog’s backup has been lost. I checked this blog’s content and learned that my previous posts starting March 9, 2013 up to yesterday have disappeared. I panicked because I didn’t have a backup of those.

I contacted my webhost provider and he said he did something wrong and was trying to correct it. I knew these things happen so I didn’t make a big deal out of it. I just rewrote everything from memory. Good thing I still have them inside my head, although just the short cut versions.

A New Toy!

This may be the happiest Valentine week for me ever because finally, we’ve gotten an iPad mini! I started bugging the hubby about it when February arrived and it was only on Valentine’s Day that he agreed we buy one. I’m so happy!

call me Casey…

Now I know why I didn’t get flowers from him last Thursday. Wait, does it really have to be like that? I should have received both! Just kidding. I’d like to think the iPad mini is the best Valentine gift we could give each other. I mean, it’s not just for me, it’s for us. We’re gonna use it both. Conjugal property. Mutual happiness? Achieved!

I started using Photoshop on my photos in 2003. I had just started working then. I used to replace faces of celebrities with my own face. Haha. I mastered the technique after reading various tutorials online.

But ask me to do the same thing today and I won’t budge. Why? Because I’ve totally forgotten about them now! I was just good then because I had tutorials to follow. My Photoshop skills are now back to zero. Poor me.

The Wait for the iPhone 5

… is finally over. And so are the hubby’s sleepless nights awaiting for his new phone. He’s been very excited about it ever since it was first launched by Apple in September. This Friday is gonna be the day for him. What’s with men and gadgets? I don’t even want to answer that question.

Are you also getting an iPhone 5? If yes, from which network? What made you decide to get it instead of the other best-selling android phone in the market? You know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I heard it’s a good phone, too.
