The following configuration steps come by request. It seems that for some the Text in the Gmail app for the iPhone is just to small. Unfortunately, the Gmail app does not have a setting to increase the text size and the change text size setting in iOS does not affect 3rd party apps like the Gmail app. The following steps will allow you to configure the Mail App for iOS to use Gmail.

While working with a client this weekend, a question came up about changing the text size on an iPhone and iPad. The default text size for them was just to small and was hard to read. The steps to change the text size are simple but a little hidden, and since I had a hard time finding information on how to do this online (in fact I could not find anyone with the correct information), here is what you need to do if you want to change the text size on any IOS 6 device (iPad / iPhone / iPod)
Lets start by saying out loud, “COMPUTERS AREN’T PERFECT, THEY BREAK”. Seriously you could get anything from a corrupt file, to a virus, to hardware issues (motherboard, power supply, hard drive could fail). If you are walking with a laptop or a tablet, you could trip, drop it and have it break (Seriously that happens everyday). Having a good and valid backup can save you, at a minimum, your time and a major headache. Sometimes things on a computer are just irreplaceable. I guess your going to have to take the entire family on vacation back to Florida (or insert the location of your last vacation here), or you will have to ask your son/daughter to recreate their 1st baby steps (which will be awkward if they are now teenagers).
There are many ways to back up a computer. Files can be manually transferred to a storage device such as an external hard drive, or uploaded to an online storage facility. Files can be backed up individually or as an entire system. Software for performing backups can be downloaded for free or a very low-cost, may be part of a software suite, or included with a hardware backup utility. The option that will work best for you will depend on your needs and the importance of your files.
Since the release of iOS 6, the biggest news in Appleland has been the removal of the Google Maps app. Its seems even the biggest Apple fan had some complaint about the Apple Maps (http://www NULL.apple NULL.com/ios/maps/) app that was released with iOS 6 as a replacement for the Google Maps program. In a letter to Apple customers (http://www NULL.apple NULL.com/letter-from-tim-cook-on-maps/), even Tim Cook admitted,
“At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better”.
Well for those with Apple iProducts who were missing their Google Maps app, ITS BACK!!!!
Ever since updating to iOS 6 on a number of items (iPhone, iPad 2, iPod), one of the errors I’ve found involves accessing the App Store. When connecting to the App Store, the initial connection seems to work, but as soon as you click on anything in the store you get the following
The following post comes via TMZ (http://www NULL.tmz NULL.com/2012/07/28/bill-melinda-gates-ipad-photo-london/). Shows that Bill and Melinda Gates have a sense of humor when it comes to the iPad.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates came face-to-face with his worst nightmare — the almighty iPad – and he was totally cool with it!
TMZ obtained the video of every computer geek’s fantasy going down down Thursday in London … where Bill and his wife Melinda are attending the Olympics.
Bill had graciously agreed to pose for a photo with a group of tourists when someone did the unspeakable — whipping out an iPad to take the shot!! Almost immediately, a woman screeches … “You can’t use an iPad!!”
The Apple objector — identified as Melinda by a witness — quickly says, “I’m just kidding.”
You gotta see Bill’s reaction though … super-cool at the site of the device that must haunt his, and every other Microsoft exec’s dreams.
Zune … anyone?
