Wireless World Of Ramsey

"For All Your Wireless Needs"

Welcome to my website

  Located at 88 East Main Street, in lovely downtown Ramsey, New Jersey is an authorized Dealer for AT&T Wireless Services. They have been in the wireless business since 1999; but their cumulative wireless experience totals over 40 years. This type of experience can only benefit their customer base. Since day # 1, the owner and staff have tried to steer clear of the stereotypical wireless dealership mentality. It has been their goal to be more of a consultant; than a salesperson. They treat “word of mouth” or “referral” business as their driving force.

Eyefi has introduced a new cloud service to complement their Wi-Fi-enabled SD memory cards for photographers. Eyefi Cloud provides a polished dedicated interface through new Android and iOS apps for users to view their photos at full resolution, add tags, organize into collections, and sync collections with other devices. The new service will run you $ 49 for a year of unlimited uploads, plus a free three months when you first download the app. Unfortunately the new app only plays nice with the Eyefi Mobi card for direct camera-to-phone downloads. Anyone with an older card will have to stick with Eyefi’s existing app.

Fire up Safari on your iPhone or iPad today and you’ll most likely find Google as the default search engine — but if Yahoo has their way that might change. Users have the option to change from Google to other search providers such as Bing or Yahoo, but Google’s had the default spot locked down for some time thanks to the handsome sum they’ve been paying Apple for the privilege. But Microsoft’s Bing is the default search used in Siri, so count that as a win for Redmond. Yahoo isn’t too happy that Google holds the crown jewel default search in Safari, and they’re apparently aiming to convince Apple to change that.

It looks like Apple’s latest model in the iPhone 5c line, the 8GB version, is beginning to go on sale in some additional countries today. We’ve received a tip that it has just this morning gone on sale in the Czech Republic for the first time, while the folks at 9to5Mac have confirmed it has also gone on sale in The Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Belgium and Poland.

The initial launch of the iPhone 5c 8GB was limited to a very select number of locations, and as yet hasn’t been seen in the U.S. Pricing varies from country to country, but the 8GB 5c offers a modest saving of around €50 on the 16GB version.

Rogers has announced some new roaming add-ons for Canadian travelers. Not too long ago, Rogers unveiled a $ 7.99 daily roaming plan for the U.S. (which already faces stiff competition against WIND’s $ 15 unlimited plan), and this new one is built for roaming worldwide. But don’t get too excited; it’s $ 9.99 for a day for up to 20 MB (depending on where you’re going), with no voice or text.

Why Apple Maps lead me to a meltdown in Central London

Posted by BMetts On April - 14 - 2014

There are rumors that iOS 8 will be addressing a lot of lingering concerns over the reliability and usefulness of Apple’s Maps. I very much hope so. Because I bring to you this Monday a tale of woe. A tale of using Apple Maps navigation, Central London and lots and lots of swearing. This is the tale of how using Apple Maps to navigate through the British capital – right through the middle – lead me to a meltdown.

The background; I haven’t been driving much in the past 12 months, and this was the very first time I’d used Apple Maps navigation since the iOS 7 update.

First let me just say, this isn’t yet another rant about sketchy directions and actually ending up somewhere in Birmingham. Far from it. The actual directions were faultless, but the way those directions were delivered caused me to have a mild breakdown outside Buckingham Palace.

I just don’t think black text on a white background is that hot for navigating with

I have two major criticisms.

The first is the appearance. Yes, the new look Maps fits beautifully within the overall look and feel of iOS 7. But I just don’t think black text on a white background is that hot for navigating with. In a car, where the sun – sometimes, in the UK – shines in through the window at odd angles leaving the display filled with nothing but glare. And because of point number 2, you really do need to look at the display.

That’s because the voice directions for Central London give nothing but local street names. Local street names are not what’s displayed on road signs. Neither are they – usually – what is displayed on the actual road markings in front of you on occasion at roundabouts and junctions. I use my navigation my listening out for instructions, like “turn right onto A406 in 500 yards.” Then I look at the road signs and the lane markings. In a city like London that’s about the only way I can actually get around without pain, misery, swearing and getting lost.

These may sound like petty criticisms to some, but in a previous life I drove the length and breadth of the UK on a weekly basis. I wouldn’t be able to do that comfortably using Apple Maps.

So, what would I like to see done about it for iOS 8? Well, there wasn’t really anything wrong with the iOS 6 navigation interface, so I’d love for the white to disappear and a bit of color and contrast to come back. And make the distance to and time of arrival more obvious. Not tiny at the top of the display.

Please, please, please make it so the verbal instructions match real life road signs.

And please, please, please make it so the verbal instructions match real life road signs. Because you should always be watching the road in front, not looking at your sat nav screen to try and work out which street you’re turning on to. This might be more of an issue here in the UK, but it’s still an issue in my car.

So that’s my take, and any future trips into the unknown will be using another mapping or sat-nav service. And that’s a shame, because Apple has done some really good work with Apple Maps. I just can’t use it as it is.

But how about you guys? Any regular Apple Maps navigation users think I’m crazy, or have you experienced similar frustrating trips. Sound off in the comments below!

auki is a new jailbreak app for iPhone that packs some serious punch when it comes to quick reply and quick compose. With a great design and features like stealth and silent modes, it could become the new messaging app to beat. Announced at JailbreakCon 2014, auki is available for purchase in Cydia today.

auki was developed and designed by both Surenix and Benno. Quick reply and quick compose are integrated into the native Messages app. The best part about them though is that they aren’t anywhere to be found, unless you need them. There are no icons to tap or extra clutter on your Lock screen or Home screen. Just set an action for auki in Activator or use the pull down gesture on any page of Notification Center.

Other unique features of auki include stealth mode and silent mode, which also integrate into the official Messages app. Simply swipe like you would to delete and you’ll see an additional button for silent mode. This enables you to silence certain message threads while others still abide by your default Message settings. Stealth mode lets you type without the recipient knowing as well as disabling read receipts on the fly.

auki is available in Cydia as of today for $ 3.99. I’ll be taking a closer look over the next few days and posting a full review, but until then, if you happen to try it out let me know what you think of it! Will you be ditching your current message tweaks for auki? Let me know in the comments!

Apple has long strove for clean energy-powered data centers for their iCloud infrastructure, and they’re taking over a hydroelectric plant in Oregon to help ensure that they can maintain that goal. Apple was recently recognized by Greenpeace for the 100% green energy supply that powers their data centers, but that supply has largely come from solar installations and from local wind power supplies. Oregon is ripe with potential for hydroelectric power, and the Prineville data center will take advantage of that. As reported by The Oregonian:

Big data centers like the one Apple has just opened in Prineville use huge volumes of electricity – as much as a small city – to power thousands of computers that hold photos, music and all manner of other digital information.

Apple, like other leading data center operators, says it plans to power its data centers entirely with renewable energy. Currently, Apple says it buys “local renewable wind energy” for its Prineville facility. The company has explored the possibility of acquiring land for a huge solar array, like one it operates in North Carolina, but has indicated it may pursue other options instead.

The 45-Mile Hydroelectric Project was previously owned by EBD Hydro, who had secured $ 8.5 million in federal loans and grants to finance construction. The plant is projected to generate between 3 and 5 megawatts of electricity — a fraction of the power needed in a large data center like Apple’s.

Did zapping Bluetooth fix your Wi-Fi? Let’s figure out why

Zapping your Bluetooth prefs can fix Wi-Fi wake from sleep problems for some Mavericks users. Let’s figure out why

This past week I brought you a tip about fixing Wi-Fi wake from sleep issues on some Mavericks-equipped Macs. The fix involves deleting a file in your Mac’s library folder.

Why it works is still beyond my understanding, but suffice it to say that it’s fixed the problem for me, as well as for many of you. Now I’d like to take it to the next step to figure out why the problem is happening.

To understand what’s going on, let’s understand what we did: We’ve deleted the com.apple.bluetooth.plist file out of your Mac’s Library directory. Files with the .plist suffix are preference lists — this one contains information about what devices are paired with your Mac using Bluetooth.

Apple’s Wireless Keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad all use Bluetooth, along with countless speakers, headsets, and input devices from third parties. The .plist file contains information about those Bluetooth devices you’ve connected to your Mac.

By deleting it, you’ve caused the Mac to create a new com.apple.bluetooth.plist file, which resets Bluetooth settings to their default state. That means that Bluetooth is kept on.

As you re-pair the devices you use with your Mac, be careful to see if one of them in particular seems to be setting off the wake from sleep problem I’ve previously discussed. And if there is one particular device causing the problem, let me know what it is here in the comments.
