Another new discovery (for me). Keyboard with iPhone
Posted by: wurm

In the course of my futzing around with freeing up drive space and getting Disk Utility to run Disk First Aid and having to swap keyboards around to boot into Recovery mode, I discovered a feature I knew I had but didn't know what it actually did.

My cheapo Bluetooth keyboard has three Bluetooth channels. I just figured if it didn't pair to my Mini with A, I'd try B or C. Well, A worked fine. Then out of curiosity I actually looked at the users manual. I hit the button for Bluetooth B, went to my iPhone and there in the Bluetooth setup, the keyboard shows up. Realistically, I don't know how often I'd use it, but it sure is nice to write a text or email on my phone using a real keyboard. That leaves me with C, which I suppose I could pair with my work Macbook Pro if my Apple keyboard ever dies or just needs charging at an inconvenient time.

Yes, it's likely old news to most of you, but I was quite impressed.

I used that a few times. I also tried connecting a Mouse but it was not possible.

I use that somewhat regularly.

Writing reviews of apps on the 'Phone is a real pain, and using a keyboard makes that a lot easier.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
