What's Frustrating the Host?


RUSH: Let me take the occasion to answer a question here that's got nothing to do with anything. 

People watching the Dittocam can of course see what's going on here, and you people listening on the radio cannot see what's going on here, and the people watching on the Dittocam are getting frustrated at watching me doing something that they don't understand.  They're sending me e-mails, "What are you doing with your phone?"  Because I am. I'm playing with the phone, and I'm checking something.

Apparently my face is betraying anger or frustration, and it's a distraction for people watching, and they want to know what I'm doing, and I don't think any of you are going to care about this.  But, as you know, I'm an Apple... I'm a Fanboy, and I am running the new iOS 7 betas on my iPhones.  I have three iPhones for a host of reasons, and it's... (interruption) Well! You now cannot be bored by my story.


RUSH: I've gotta answer this 'cause people are getting irritated, and I don't want to spend a whole lot of time with this, but I'm running the new iOS 7 beta. I'm an Apple Fanboy. I love this stuff, as you know.  It's fabulous. It's wonderful. I can't wait 'til everybody has it. However, in the new Notifications Center, which is all brand-new, there is a feature -- and this has been written about so I'm not disclosing anything. 

There's a feature that's like Google now, that's a little bit predictive after you have built up, say, a travel pattern, location. You can turn this off if you don't want it used.  I happen to like it so I keep it on.  Essentially what it does is, after you build up a pattern, the notification center will tell you what the weather is and what it's gonna be, what your calendar looks like, what your stocks are doing and so forth, or your appointments that day -- and it'll tell you what the traffic is for what it thinks your next destination is. 

But the next destination thing is only working on one iPhone.

You know, I like to understand how things work, and I don't know what triggers it, and there's no documentation on it yet, so there's no way of knowing what triggers it.  I've gone to forums and I'm trying to figure it out.  It's a beta, so it's understandable that it isn't working.  I'm just personally frustrated.  I wish it would, 'cause I think it's a killer feature. I love it, and I'm trying to make it work on the two that it's not working on.  I'm sure it's the fact that it's beta related. 

But, anyway, that's what you see me doing every five minutes, or when I have a commercial break if you happen to be watching on the Dittocam. 

That's that.
