Fix for the iOS 6.1 Microsoft Exchange bug will be released by Apple

Apple has claimed that they have found fix for the bug causing excess activity on the Microsoft Exchange account. This fix will be available in the upcoming update of the software. This bug is too much frustrating, even for the corporate IT department. They have also blocked their devices from Exchange servers, according to ZDNet.

This is of course not the first fix released by Apple for its latest iOS. In previous week, they have also launched bug fixing update for the iOS 6.1.1 aiming on iPhone 4S. This update is targeted to fix the issues of euro pen carrier holders, related on the 3G connection of the phone.

Darrell Etherington has noted that Apple has launched its new update in just five days for their iOS device. This may be due to warning issued by two European mobile operators- 3 Austria and Vodafone UK for text messages. They have warned them to update iPhone 4S to the iOS 6.1 due to worst 3G connection problems.

Apple has taken immediate action as this bug is proving annoying for the enterprise users which are finding it difficult to work around. Apple does not really want these users to shift back to iOS 6.0.

According to the statement given by Apple, “Users of iOS devices who has availed Microsoft Exchange related bug will now be able to encounter increased network working in reduced battery life. The extra network working will be encountered in logs on Exchange servers and it will lead on blocking iOS device.

Pussy Flip The Game, No Really, It Exists.

There’s an iOS game from UK developers Kwalee called Pussy Flip. Get your minds out of the gutter, it’s about cats! A classic puzzle game in the tradition of Othello that calls for “strategic pussy placement” to win. Lost in translation or perhaps intentional joke, you must admit Pussy Flip is an attention grabber.

I think the title is hilarious but in a probably wise move, a future update to Pussy Flip will include a name change to Flip The Cats. With so many games on the App Store I probably would have not even been aware of this game were it not for its innuendo inspiring title. I’m sold, well-played Kwalee, well-played.

Pussy Flip is now available on Apple’s App Store for .99 cents.

Once they will build, you will buy- A retail strategy launched by Apple

Apple is one of the companies which has enjoyed breakthrough in its almost every product line and as a whole, they are considered as immensely successful. They have marked their name in provision of hardware devices as well as software service providers. Now their retail chain is also showing success, which according to the analysts can be greatest innovation for the company.

In the Goldman Sachs investor conference, Cook has shared retail plans of Apple. He has explained in detail about the growth and success of Apple stores and also shared expansive strategy for 2013. You can also visualise the chart of progress on the keys like store visitors, international distribution, store opening and others on the blog post of Asymco’s Horace Dediu.

The most important graphical comparison done by Dediu is store open Vs store visitors. Apple has encountered more physical presence basing on the average numbers of visitors, for the last two years. Stores of Apple, in every location where they are existing, is about 1 million. The new strategy discussed by Apple is not only about store opening but also about closing existing ones and also replacing the larger outlets.

Apple has launched its own iPod touch inventory system and check out points and has changed their structure of stores for providing EasyPay shopping to the customers. They have come up with in store pick up so to change the thinking about brick and mortar stores.

It is important to bear in mind that Apple’s new retail leadership has recently entered into the turmoil. The success and creation of Apple’s retail division is attributed to the former retail operator, Mr. Rob Johnson who has left Apple in June 2011. He has been replaced by Mr. Dixons which was CEO of John Browett in January 2012. This person is being hired after six months of first left over and his hiring was quite controversial. In October 2012, this person was also dismissed from his job and Apple is still in search to replace Browett.
