How-To Make iOS 8 and iPhone 6 Work With Google Voice

Many users of the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models are finding it impossible to re-link with Google Voice for voicemail. When entering in the classic **004*1[GV-Number]# sequence users are seeing a "Setting Registration Failed" message instead of the happy success note. Fear no longer. Marcel Brown sorted this out and you have two ways you can enable Google Voice on your new phone. First is to call AT&T and have them set up "conditional call forwarding" for you, or you can set up the 3 big use cases all by yourself with some slightly different commands. "234567890" in Marcel's examples would be replaced with your Google Voice number, including area code:

Call Forward if Unanswered: *61*1234567890#
Call Forward if Unreachable: *62*1234567890#
Call Forward if Busy: *67*1234567890#

Set all three of these and you're good to go. To check the status of these enter *#61#, *#62# and *#67# respectively. To deactivate, enter ##61#, ##62# and/or ##67#. Enjoy!...

Review: Flote Orbit Tablet Stand

Orbit arrives in three pieces: a solid steel base that feels like it weighs nearly 20 pounds, a thick metal arm with a Philips head screw at one end and a concave magnet at the other, and a spring-loaded cradle with a ball on the back and rubber pads on its four fingers. Assembly is as simple as unscrewing the screw with a self-supplied screwdriver, sticking the bottom of the arm into the base, reattaching the screw and a washer plate under the base,…

Plastc Aims to be Your One-card Digital Wallet

Coin may have kickstarted the digital card to store all your creditcards, but Plastc thinks it has what it takes to leapfrog past its competitor and win a place in out wallets. With Coin months behind schedule, and its lack of chip and PIN support, Plastc could have a leg up in the all-in-one card game - assuming Apple doesn't run over both companies when it launches Apple Pay later this month.

Apple Sapphire Partner’s Bankruptcy Shows It’s Hard...

GT Advanced Technologies (GT) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday, a move that would give the sapphire producer and Apple supplier a chance to reorganize its finances and debt. GT's move may be surprising to some, considering the US$578 million deal the company inked with Apple, and it's proof that being an Apple supplier isn't an easy job.

First Look: Logitech Type+ Case With Keyboard For...

Logitech's Bluetooth keyboard cases for iPads have generally followed a single rule -- the keyboard has been the same width as the iPad, for better or worse. The new Type+ ($100) breaks that rule, allotting enough width to the keyboard to give iPad Air users access to full-sized keys, including four rows of number and letter keys, plus a fifth row of half-height function keys. While the case itself isn't terribly impressive -- essentially a wraparound,…

There really shouldn’t be anything momentous about switching cellular carriers, but this year was different for me. After seven years of using AT&T, I finally switched to one of its competitors. I’ve been expecting to switch for six years, yet the experience of actually doing it turned out to be a bigger deal than I’d imagined. If you’re thinking of switching carriers, I hope my experience — a generally very positive…

Review: Seidio Dilex Pro with Metal Kickstand for...

While we’ve already seen quite a few cases for iPhone 6 similar to Dilex Pro, this case stands out in a few ways — some good, some bad. The fit isn’t as tight as we’ve seen on similar TPU or rubber/plastic cases, as it seems a bit too easy to pull the sides away from the phone. It’s nice that Seidio has included a kickstand for landscape viewing, and does so without adding bulk. But it’s a bit annoying to have to dig…

Surprise: Mac iWorm Spreads through Pirated Apps

When news of Mac.BackDoor.iWorm for the Mac hit the Web last week, the way the malware threat spread was still something of a mystery, but that's been uncovered now, too: pirated software. Like so many other malware threats, attackers are using the promise of free software as a trojan horse to trick victims trying to save a buck into installing the iWorm payload.

The Mac Observer Spin: Using pirated software as a trojan horse to install iWorm doesn't come as a surprise at all. Using stolen software is bad not only because hard working developers don't get paid for their work, but also because you could infect your Mac with malware.

How the Apple Watch Already Has Success Designed in

When a new product category arrives from Apple, like the Apple Watch, it can be hard to size up the future prospects. Some observers only have a dim idea about how customers will embrace and exploit the product, and they don't yet see how Apple works to design success into the very DNA of any new product. In time, however, it all becomes clear, and the naysayers seldom turn out to be right.
