As usual thanks to Engadget for tipping me off. Today Apple released 10.6.5 on Software Update. No link to the Delta or Combo update dmgs yet, once I have found them I shall link to them. For those who don’t know what Delta and Combo mean, Delta means you must have 10.6.4 to install the update and comes in at a significant less file size than the Combo update. The Combo update on the other hand allows you to install it on any version of 10.6, so basically 10.6-10.6.4 or in computer geek terms 10.6.x. Anyways fire up software update from the top left of your Mac on the Apple menu. The bugfixes can be seen in the image above, Enjoy!
As usual thanks to Engadget I am now aware that the iPhone 4.0.1 and the iPad 3.2.1 updates are available through iTunes. These updates don’t do much, just fix the formulas for displaying signal level, however a lot of my friends have been having problems with 4.0 so maybe this will fix things. If you haven’t upgraded already connect your iPhone/iPad to iTunes and click on the Check for update button. I guess they released this just in time for tomorrow’s press conference!
I was just reading the front page of Engadget when I saw they posted that Apple will be hosting a Press Conference on this Friday. Without even reading the article, this comes to mind, It’s clearly regarding the antenna problems, and secondly I think their might an apology and a recall.
Maybe it was Jeremy Clarkson’s statement that forced them to hold this conference!
Anyone that knows me knows how much I love updating computers, gadgets, or anything that can be flashed with a new firmware/software. I just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Today thanks to engadget I get to have that feeling! My Canon Rebel T2i gets an update to 1.08 which fixes a bug while shooting video in manual mode, as well as some Spanish and French spelling mistakes in the menu for the 1-D Mark IV.

So I have been using iOS 4 for about a week now, and it’s a nice step forward for the platform. Today it officially came out, and according to Engadget it is the same as the GM release. I have been having trouble with updating my carrier settings to Rogers 7.1 and as a result my data connection is not working. I am now restoring the phone and will not restore the backup I have a feeling that might be the fix. I will update this post if that resolves the problem.
Update: Yes it solved my problem.
Thanks to Engadget, I am now aware that the 10.6.1 update is out for snow leopard. It fixes a handfull of issues, however the most important one was the adobe flash update that patches up a security hole that hackers could have exploited. You can now install via Software update.
