Why Mac for College…

Why Mac for CollegeWhy iPad for CollegeWhy iPod touch and iPhone for College。如果你不曉得原因是什麼,瞧瞧 Apple 網站上的 Student Portal 入口網頁。Apple 最近更新了這些頁面,iPhone 的頁面上這麼寫著:

iPod touch and iPhone put thousands of apps — and countless possibilities — in your pocket. That’s just part of why they’re ideal for college students on the go.

同意嗎?某些項目可以展開以顯示更多內容,頁面上的動態操作有點類似 iOS 4 和 OS X Lion 裡面的檔案夾概念。 

iOS 4.0.1 for iPhone、iOS 3.2.1 for iPad 釋出


Apple 釋出了iPhone 3G、iPhone 3GS 和 iPhone 4 適用的 iOS 4.0.1 Software Update 軟體更新,以及 iPad 適用的 iOS 3.2.1。


針對 iPhone 適用的 iOS 4.0.1 Software Update 軟體更新,Apple 並未有詳細的釋出事項,僅提供下列說明:

Improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display


關於訊號列顯示調整的部分,AnandTech 有一篇詳細的報導 (英文)。簡單來說,iOS 4.1 (或 iOS 4.0.1) 對於各訊號列有較佳的等寬表現。


The results are conclusive – Apple has dramatically changed the signal strength to signal bar mapping in iOS 4.0.1 and the iOS 4.1 beta, making the dynamic range not only much broader, but the range values for each bar much wider. The range of signals that correspond to bars three and four are the same width, and bar two is only slightly less.The cutoff value for two bars to one bar remains the same, but every other value has increased. The result is that the worst case drop of 24 dBm no longer makes all the signal bars disappear, but rather two.


還有其他適用於 iOS 3.2.1 for iPad 的修復與改善:
