Well, I guess I’m going to have to live without Gmail, because I can’t seem to get it to work right, no matter what I do. It works fine on my notebook, and I even decided to bite the bullet and delete all 1,300 messages last night…but they kept coming back. I would delete one, then it would re-download like I had never deleted it.
I give up.
I’m just going to go with the Yahoo account and have my Gmail forward to that. (which is a nice little trick to make your Gmail PUSH as well)
I have also had some problems with the software slowing down, or being laggy a bit over the last 24 hours. Nothing too troubling or bothersome, but I have had to press the pause button a few times to get it to respond when listening to podcasts.
The battery life is holding strong at 6 hours of mixed playback before hitting the 20% mark. It is also important to mention that I have the display on almost constantly during that time, listening to music and reading and responding to emails.
So far, I am impressed with the battery life of the product.
I also spent a good hour of my day today demoing the iPhone for various people. It’s starting to go from fun to show off, to kind of tiring. I enjoyed showing it to a former boss of mine today, just because he’s been excited about the phone since it’s announcement, and I wanted him to see that it actually works as advertised, but I am getting less enthusiastic about showing it to strangers.
Still, that comes with the territory I suppose. The more Apple fans there are out there, the more readers I’ll have, right?
