Apple’s Magic Mouse Draining Bluetooth Keyboard Batteries

16 12 2011

A few days ago I posted about an impressive development of Apple, the New iMac which carries a Bluetooth keyboard and Magic Mouse. Though it holds a charm to work with a Magic Mouse but for last few days Apple iMac users are complaining about the batteries on the Apple’s own discussion forum. They were facing the Bluetooth battery draining.

At the start of the issue, some users reported that they are finding keyboard going Sleep Mode and it is because of using Magic mouse with it, some said Magic mouse is the root of the issue and others were blaming the Snow Leopard (the OS used in iMac) which does not support perfect.

On first stage users were unable to identify the actual problem if it is with keyboard or the Magic mouse. But users by theirselves experimented swapping the Magic mouse with Logitech mouse and the problem disappeared in no time. It showed that the issue was actually with Magic mouse which drains the batteries of wireless keyboard. Even users are reported changing their batteries every week after debate with Apple which does not seem to acknowledge the issue. Though users loved Magic mouse for its magical multi functionality, they are looking toward Apple to resolve this issue soon.

This problem occurred in the New iMac’s wireless two-battery version which started shipping in October. A lot of users approached Apple for this fault but it can not be said confirm if Apple is ignoring or really unaware of the fault.





Credit Card Payment Via iPhone

15 12 2011

The new year started and still we talk about iPhone. With the start of 2010, new feature are added to iPhone for its users which is not only attracting new customers but also retaining the old ones.

Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey has started up a new company called Square. Square has introduced a device which will be used on iPhone. Are you wondering what the function of this device is?

This device will work while attaching on the headphone jack of iPhone and the feature can be said to exchange money. It will enable the users to execute their credit transactions via iPhone. This device does not require any installation and works directly after it is plugged-in with iPhone. It made the credit card payment easier. No matter who you are and where you are, at home, office, walking through a street, in a garden, or even a desert, you can easily make you credit card payments just by plugging-in the device with your iPhone.

According to Dorsey, he got the idea of introducing this device nearly a year ago. He knew a glass artist who lost his $2,000 only because his customer paid him through credit card which he was unable to accept. Then Dorsey though to make this facility available to all via iPhone.  This device is actually a credit card reader which reads the credit card and turns your handset in a credit processing terminal.  It is really a big business solution. When Apple released iPhone, even they may have no idea that their gadget will become a credit processing terminal to the business people. This innovation will really prove effective for the business owners. They can proceed their credit transactions while they are anywhere without dropping the response or dilatory.
