New iPhone observations

Beautiful video

  • Here's a video of the same scene in the photo below. Really sweet.

It takes a really nice photo

  • Here's a picture of the fountain in Central Park.

  • It has more pixels than that Flickr rendering. If you want to see them all, there's a menu in the lower right corner of the page that lets you access them.

Image stabilization didn't work

  • I did a Hyperlapse video of a ride through Central Park, and for some reason, the image stabilization didn't work. Not sure if this is a problem with the software or the camera.

  • I have uploaded the video to YouTube. Again, the image quality is pretty incredible. But it might make you nauseous to view it.

It makes everything feel new

  • Hard to describe, but my desk, my house, the Mac, it all feels new.

  • It's like a drug in a way. I can't account for it, but it's nice!

It feels big

  • Right now I'm glad I didn't get the 6-Plus.

  • The 6 feels very big. It's hard to reach some of the spots you have to reach. I imagine that the 6-Plus is a two-handed affair.

T-Mobile question

  • I have the iPhone 6 restored from backup and running.

  • I got an unlocked T-Mobile phone. It appears to have a connection to T-Mobile, but I haven't set anything up with them yet.

  • Trying to figure out if I should swap in the SIM from the old phone, or try somehow to activate it through software or their website.

  • Hmmm.

  • Update: I just swapped the SIM cards. Seemed the easiest thing to do.
