FRUIT LOGO TOYMAKER Apple's Iphone for right-handed people seems to have yet another flaw.
Apparently coming up with a phone that disconnects you from your provider when you use it in your left hand is not enough. It seems that Apple's geniuses forgot to test the Imovie software.
You would think that sending a picture on software called Imovie would be a stroll in the park, but apparently not. In fact Apple has made Imovie on the Iphone 4 about as useful as an English mid-field defence.
According to Apple's help files the problem is caused by people who insist on looking at photos that are a little too complex for the Iphone 4's tiny $10 chip.
The support site said that some photos will cause Imovie to quit while exporting images.
Full-size images taken from the rear facing Iphone 4 camera will result in this problem more commonly than with older Iphone 3GS pictures, or pictures that have been synced from Iphoto via Itunes, the company said.
Imovie might bug out while exporting a project with as few as 12 to 15 photos, depending on the size of the photos.
Apple's advice is that if its Imovie quits while exporting, export your project to a smaller size or remove still images from your project and try exporting again.
In other words think smaller. The Iphone 4 really is becoming the communication toy of broken dreams and at this rate should be remarketed as the Iphone Flaw. If Apple renames it that, Steve Jobs' fanbois will probably queue for it thinking it is a new model. µ
