The Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is Ireland’s largest, most progressive and innovative animal welfare organisation. Every year we rescue and rehabilitate thousands of sick and injured domestic animals and wildlife and place them in loving homes or return them to the wild.
We treat the animals that come into our care like our own family. We do all that we can to ensure a healthy and happy life for pets and wildlife. This philosophy is at the core of all that we do from medical treatment and rehabilitation to standing up for the rights of neglected and abused animals by lobbying for improved legislation and prosecution.
iMessage will allow you to send unlimited free picture or text messages to another iPhone, iPad or iPod touch user, assuming they have activated the service and are using iOS 5. Remember these messages count towards your data allowance, so make sure you have a price plan before using it.
The most interesting thing about iMessage, is you don’t need to know how to use it, you just need to make sure it’s turned on. Once it’s enabled, use the Messaging app as normal, if the other person has iMessage enabled on their iOS device, your device should know this automatically and use it to deliver your message.
iMessage or SMS?
iMessage will tell you if the other person has iMessage enabled
By changing the text in the message field from “Message” to “iMessage”. Type in the address first and tap into the message filed, and see if it changes.
The send button will be blue for iMessage and Green for normal SMS. Again you need to type in the address and tap into the message field to see if it changes colour.
How to make sure iMessage is enabled
Make sure you are running iOS 5.
Open the settings app and select ‘Messages’. The first option is iMessage – ‘on’ or ‘off’. Select ‘on’. Scroll down to “Receive at”. This will allow you to add e-mail an address at which iOS can recognise you as an iMessage user, in addition to your phone number. Add your apple ID email address here too, if you wish.
The ‘send as SMS’ option is set to ‘on’ – this means, if for any reason iMessage cannot send the message, it will use SMS (or possibly MMS) meaning you will be charged the network rate. This button seems confusing, when I tested it, it made no difference and sent the message anyway!
On a iPad, the settings are more or less the same, but there is no SMS option. This is the first time the iPad has a messaging app, so it does open up functionality. Even if it is limited to iOS.
The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. (US President Barack Obama)
Steve Jobs has died at the age of 56. May he rest in peace.
As a mark of respect the Apple.com website has an iconic picture of it’s former CEO and co-founder. It is also reported that Apple stores will dim the lights behind the Apple logo. This is a sad day for Apple fans, Steve Jobs is the man who brought technology to the people, in a way that “just works” Thank you Steve, we can only hope and pray that you will keep an eye on Apple from the iCloud. iPIPB.com
Steve died peacefully today surrounded by his family. In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family. We are thankful to the many people who have shared their wishes and prayers during the last year of Steve’s illness; a website will be provided for those who wish to offer tributes and memories. We are grateful for the support and kindness of those who share our feelings for Steve. We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny T.D., (via merrionstreet.ie): “Steve Jobs was a creative genius who broke down walls in business and opened doors in people’s minds. His innovative prowess in the area of technology has brought about a level of access to information for millions that few would have ever foreseen. His legacy will be not just his products and business achievements, but also the way in which he altered mindsets in the business world and in everyday life”.
Microsoft co-founder and Chairman Bill Gates : I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely
They say ‘it’s whats on the inside that counts’. At least that’s what Apple would have you believe, and I suppose there not wrong. The iPhone 4s, will punch harder than the iPhone 4 but will physically look the same.
As fanyboys shake off their disillusionment over lack of an iPhone 5, lets take stock here. The iPhone 4 looks amazing, the glass design is sleek, modern and classy. It’s a winner and still is! Upping the specs and maintain the same external hardware for another year might seem like a smart idea, and will (hopefully) allow Apple more time to work on iPhone 5 for next year. But Apple better watch out, as the competition will be circling around this one with some glee.
Still I can’t help feeling a little let down by Apple this year. I really expected a hardware refresh for the iPhone. But there is still lots to look forward to, even if you are not getting the iPhone 4s!
iOS 5 Release Date
iOS 5. Which was unveiled last year, will be available for the 3Gs, iPhone 4 from the of 12th October, and it will open up a whole new world for your iPhone. Using iCloud your iPhone will be liberated from your Mac or PC, you no longer need to connect to iTunes to activate it! A few other features of iOS include:
Notification Center: You get all kinds of notifications on your iOS device: new email, texts, friend requests, and more. With Notification Center, you can keep track of them all in one convenient location. Just swipe down from the top of any screen to enter Notification Center.
Newsstand: Read all about it. All in one place. iOS 5 organizes your magazine and newspaper app subscriptions in Newsstand: a folder that lets you access your favorite publications quickly and easily.
Reminders: Next time you think to yourself, “Don’t forget to…,” just pull out your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and jot it down. Reminders lets you organize your life in to-do lists — complete with due dates and locations. Say you need to remember to pick up milk during your next grocery trip
As I said above, there is no hardware changes on the outside, but inside there is a number of positive improvements.
Like the iPhone 4, iPhone 4s it will be available in white, black and Irish Green. Capacity is 16, 32 or 64 GB. Apple also says it has a ‘better’ antenna which will hopefully squash reports of dropped calls which haunted the iPhone 4. The camera looks amazing, 8-megapixel with video stabilization which records HD video (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio! The release date for Ireland is the end of October 2011, with the UK getting it October 14.
Something which will make a noticeable difference to the operations of this device is the two cores in the A5 chip which Apple say will deliver up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics!
Much in the same way that the 3GS improved the overall experience of the 3G, the 4S does likewise compared to the existing 4. The dual-core A5 chip is a laudatory improvement, and whisking about pages, loading the camera application and launching — well, just about everything — just feels zippier. As it should.
Siri looks amazing. Voice commands that work! The demos are impressive. But what is it exactly? Watch this promo video from Apple to better understand it.
