This week, we’re joined by Damian Holbrook (TV Guide Magazine) who recently gained notoriety after his snarky Twitter dig at the new iPhone wound up in a Samsung commercial. We talk about how that happened, what the response has been, and how Damian is dealing with the onslaught of iPhone fanboys.
Then it’s on to Fall TV. We discuss some of the most talked-about shows, starting with “Gotham,” then “Scorpion” and then of course “The Mysteries of Laura.”
This week on “Banter with Ben and Lisa,” Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) and Lisa Timmons (twitter.com/timmonslisa) talk about new happenings in pop culture. First, we take on Apple’s ios7 for the iPhone. Then, it’s on to the fall premieres of “Dads” and “Brooklyn Nine Nine.” As a bonus, we make a few Emmy predictions, and then discuss Britney Spears’s new song “Work, Bitch” before reliving an epic “Wheel of Fortune” fail from earlier this week. Along the way, there are tales of mandolins and coffee mugs, naturally. Come listen!
If you’re like me, you just downloaded and installed the new iPhone operating system (iOS4) and nearly fainted at the prospect of all the new features. Multitasking! Folders! Wallpapers! Playlists! Threaded emails! There’s only one catch: it’s not clearly evident how to use all the new stuff. Switching wallpapers is pretty easy to figure out (just go to Settings), and the threaded email is pretty self-explanatory, but what of multi-tasking? And how do you make a folder?
Apple didn’t make tutorials easily available (at least as far as my researching skills proved), but I found the above nifty video that talked me through some of the finer points of the new OS. Check it out if you’re having similar issues or if you just want to learn some iOS4 tips.
