miApple.me icon big 1Today I’ll give you an updated survey about my personally owned Apple products. There were some significant changes… 😉

First, on September 23, I switch from my iPhone 4 (32 GB) to a new iPhone 4S (64 GB). The speed improvement is really significant, especially if you use apps like iPhoto. Further more, I wanted to see how “Siri” works. But after testing for a while I’ve got the opinion that you can only use it if you are alone in a room because this will irritate other people if you are speaking, but not with them… 😉

Windows 8 logo“AirPort Extreme can turn your external USB hard drive into a drive you can share with all the users on your network and access securely over the Internet. This feature — AirPort Disk — is a simple and convenient way to share files among everyone in your family, office, or class. How does it work? Just connect the external hard drive to the USB port on the back of your AirPort Extreme and — voilà — all the documents, videos, photos, and other files on the drive instantly become available to anyone on the secure network, Mac and PC users alike.” – Well, that’s the Apple Theory, but on the Windows reality it is not that simple…

Windows 8Do you have sometimes the need to have a FAT32 formatted hard drive? Don’t you? If you’ve got Apple devices beside Microsoft ones, you will have the need! But there are some issues to overcome: On the one hand Windows 8 will only give you the opportunity of formatting NTFS and exFAT, on the other hand most FAT32 apps will only format up to 32 GB.

Yesterday I received the brand new Airport Express Base Station(3rd generation, MC414Z/A)! The main advantage in contrast to the precessor versions is an additional 100 MBit/s ethernet LAN port. Yes, it is not a 1GBit/s ethernet LAN port! In the first instance, I was somehow disappointed, but I checked the transfer rates with my PC from and to my ‘My Book Live’: 12 MB/s from and 6 MB/s to the My Book Live. That’s OK to me.

miappleme_Big_1Last friday I bought the Apple camera connection kit (MC531ZM/A): Apple camera connection kit (apple store). The main advantage in contrast to competitors products such as zoomit is the faster photo transfer speed. Transferring a photo of 1-2 MB takes only a few seconds. Further more, you do not need to charged the kits. They are powered by the ipad itself.
