iPhone: You may be sharing your location without knowing!

Posted in findings,mac,mobile,software,technology,tutorial by christoph.burgdorfer on the February 13th, 2015

Check your iPhone privacy settings. Now! You may be sharing your location without knowing!

I was clicking on the “Details” button of my imessages desktop app and found that one of my friends popped up on a map. It seems that he was sharing his location with me under his iPhone’s privacy settings. Then I checked my privacy settings and found that I also have some people I was sharing my location with. But I couldn’t remember when I shared the location with them in the iPhone settings. After a bit of pondering I realised that I was sharing my location with them at some point using the Apple “Find My Friends” app. Back then sharing had to be manually turned on and off. I must have forgotten to turn it off. What’s creepy about this is that iOS must have “silently” inherited those settings.

If you’ve been using “Find my Friends” you better check out your iPhone Settings, too!

Here’s how:

iTunes Connect down for 2 days straight

Posted in mac,software,technology by christoph.burgdorfer on the September 5th, 2013

Apple’s iTunes Connect has been down for 2 days straight now. All we see is the message

“iTunes Connect is temporarily unavailable due to scheduled maintenance.
Try again later.”

itunes connect maintenance

I was wondering what’s up, because it seems, every now and then, it’s working again extremely fast for a minute or two, until you get kicked out again and lose your session. Then it comes up with the “scheduled for maintenance” message again.

To me this seems as if they don’t have it under control. Does it have to do with the iOS 7 update?

Either way, I would have expected Apple to make an official statement so I know what to expect.

If you’re on a Mac/Safari or an iPhone, you’ll find this post awesome!

If you’re not on a Mac/Safari or an iDevice, you’ll find it useless and boring.

We at my company coANDco UK are proud to have produced two videos for Middle East online media and advertising expert FoldedUp.com. Soraya Abbar has been directing and producing two videos. The first one is a very nicely done short advertising getting the idea of FoldedUp.com to the point:

Finding your way around the variety of media channels is not easy these days. Especially in an emerging market such as the Middle East. FoldedUp.com is the perfect partner to bring clarity into the confusion. This has been nicely illustrated in the first, shorter illustration video using the music of Maura Musciacco.

The second video is more about company information, the hard facts and the actual tools the site provides.
