Geezer and Carbon based biped, with a fondness for hard cheese, Amigas, synthesised noises and competing in sprint triathlons.

Unix geek at heart, Mac user since 10.4 so still a little green on some things (Dog cow? Teh snappy?), but familiar to some extent with almost every current computing platform know to man, and some that aren't.

comment Using iPhone while charging and when charged
@duci9y Yes I am talking relative, because we cannot access actual values. The user displayed value is an abstract approximation. @ NicolasBarbulesco If charging to full capacity was the best thing to do, then there would be no need to cover up this drain/charge cycle, however unlike a car battery it is not healthy to do this on a lithium ion battery, the best thing for those is to use them, and so this method allows for that to happen without confusing the user.

comment How are notifications removed on iOS devices?
Possibly, thanks. I'll look later, but I was hoping for a laymans explanation; I thought notifications were a simple push operation, but apparently not any more
