Anybody know how to post photos from an iPhone to SA? Do I have to open up the full version or can I do it from the mobile version ?

And while I am at it:
I don't see much reason to post my signature with every post and it is easy to choose no to on the full version. Can you opt not to include a signature with a cell phone post ??

To use my iPhone and post photos to SA you would need to know my access code and how to post photos from an iPhone to SA.

I was asking for that information which is generic to all iPhones with respect to posting here, not just information about how to use my iPhone.

fixed four failed to comprehend your precise grammer  ^_^
 
what's the higest grade you flunked on english What is the most advanced level English course in which you did not get an A grade?

 
Never happened. There was one time when a graduate student initially gave me a lousy grade on a paper. She objected to my use of tense in a few sentences where I changed tense mid sentence. I had to go to her office and explain the reasons I had deliberately done so and she said, ( I shit you not!!) "I might write that way in my thesis but people don't write that way or speak that way in everyday communication."

Over the last 40 years my spoken and written use of the language has decayed but I grew up in a home with two older siblings each of whom was a valedictorian and parents who absolutely wanted to create a third. One of my Christmas presents was a copy of Edwin Newman's Strictly Speaking.
I am not certain I ever learned anything new about grammar in a classroom.
(Other than not to ever correct a friend's without first asking if it would be OK to do so.)

I only have the iPhone because I asked the kid in the Sprint store this question:

I need one of those phones I can slide my thumb over and scroll through photos and it needs to be waterproof so I don't ruin it when it is in my pocket and I walk into the lake. What do you have?

He showed me an iPhone and a waterproof case and said it was his store's only option

OK - how do I load a pic direct to this site from an Android. then? Mine, or another one.


And, yes, the battery in an eyeFone can be changed at home by a skilled-enough geek. It's not a beginner project, though.

The battery answer is simple. I walk into the Sprint Store and tell them my phone doesn't work and they hand me a replacement .
If the phone fails more than once I bitch and they figure out a way to keep their old customer

IT’S THE ECONOMY Cracking the Apple Trap

At first, I thought it was my imagination. Around the time the iPhone 5S and 5C were released, in September, I noticed that my sad old iPhone 4 was becoming a lot more sluggish. The battery was starting to run down much faster, too. But the same thing seemed to be happening to a lot of people who, like me, swear by their Apple products. When I called tech analysts, they said that the new operating system (iOS 7) being pushed out to existing users was making older models unbearably slow. Apple phone batteries, which have a finite number of charges in them to begin with, were drained by the new software. So I could pay Apple $79 to replace the battery, or perhaps spend 20 bucks more for an iPhone 5C. It seemed like Apple was sending me a not-so-subtle message to upgrade.

Deep thoughts this week:

1. Apple may be coordinating the obsolescence of its products.

2. Which is annoying for consumers.

3. But possibly worse for the company.

Readers’ Comments
Them or Us, New York, N.Y.

Of course, there are more benign explanations. The new software and recent app updates offer fancy new features that existing users want; maybe the battery is sealed with tiny five-point screws for aesthetic considerations. Perhaps, but this isn’t the first time that tech analysts and random crazies on the Internet have noted that breakdowns in older Apple products can often coincide with when upgrades come onto the market. Many have taken this as evidence of “planned obsolescence,” a term that dates to the Great Depression, when a real estate broker suggested that the government should stimulate the economy by placing artificial expiration dates on consumer products so people would buy more.

To conspiracy-theory-hungry observers (and some of the rest of us), it might make sense that Apple would employ this business strategy. The tech giant, after all, has reached near-saturation levels in the U.S. smartphone market. If iPhones work forever, people who already own the devices­ won’t buy new ones. Furthermore, selling products with finite life spans can be good for consumers, depending on their tastes and how informed they are. The fashion industry, whose entire mission is to essentially render products obsolete long before they cease to be functional, does this regularly. I buy clothes from H&M and other low-cost, trend-driven stores knowing full well that the pieces might fall apart after a year’s worth of washes. And if the clothes won’t be fashionable next year anyway, who cares? Improving the durability — and thereby cost — of the clothes would probably just drive away price-sensitive shoppers like me. Apple has similar considerations. Would the additional longevity of the battery be valuable enough to its core consumers to justify the inevitable higher price?

Economists have theories about market conditions that encourage planned obsolescence. A company has strong incentives to degrade product durability when it has a lot of market power and when consumers don’t have good substitute products to choose from. (That’s what happened with the international light-bulb cartel of the early 20th century, which penalized its members for manufacturing bulbs that lasted more than 1,000 hours.) When Apple started making the iPhone in 2007, its product was so innovative that it could have deliberately degraded durability without fear. But in the last couple years, the company has faced stiffer competition from Samsung and HTC, among others, which should deincentivize planned obsolescence. “Buyers are smart, and if they start figuring out that one of the costs of buying Apple’s products is that they’re constantly nickel-and-diming you, they’ll switch,” said Austan Goolsbee, an economics professor at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.

Well, maybe. A company could still be encouraged to engage in planned obsolescence if consumers perceive large “switching costs” associated with going to a new brand. There are plenty of economics textbooks to choose from, for instance, and yet publishers still artificially make their old editions unusable by changing pagination or scrambling homework questions because they know teachers don’t want to deal with learning a whole new book.

Similarly, iPhone users have probably purchased complementary products, like apps, that won’t transfer to Android phones. They also probably have a network of iPhone-using friends with whom they can chat free using Apple’s Messages app (instead of paying for text messages). These switching costs increase Apple’s incentives to force its existing customers to upgrade by making older models gradually become more dysfunctional.

There is, however, a simple way to effectively render an old product obsolete without fleecing your existing customers. Instead of degrading the old model, companies can offer innovations in the new model that make upgrading irresistible. Apple succeeded at doing this for a while, offering new iPhones that included major improvements. In the past, consumers were so excited about the cool new features, like Siri, the voice-activated interface, that they may not have minded (or even noticed) if their old phones started to deteriorate; they planned on upgrading anyway. This time around, that’s less true. The iPhone 5S and 5C offer fewer quantum improvements. Consumers are more likely to want their old phones to continue working at peak condition in perpetuity, and to feel cheated when they don’t.

When major innovations remain out of reach, and degrading durability threatens to tick off loyal customers, companies like Apple can still take a cue from the fashion industry. If you can brainwash consumers into developing new tastes that make the old stuff look uncool for aesthetic rather than functional reasons, you still have a shot at harvesting more sales from your existing customer base. But it seems Apple may have already figured this out too. Just check out the wait times for the iPhone 5S in that shiny new gold color.

I am well aware my entire fleet of computers and sailboats needs to be replaced every few years ( except for my Thistle and J-24).

I am also aware the general population would rather have the flashy new stuff than simply continue to use the same tired old stuff.

The way I see it the new computers ALWAYS kick the five year old products ' asses,

On the other hand , when my old Laser dies, I have to buy another one that has the same intolerable problems as the one it replaced.

Combine that with my own business where my fiberglass products and keels shaped and faired in 1985 are still the perfect shape and only need an occasional polish job and I get downright pissed at the world!!!!


END HIJACK!!!!

Really!!! stop it !!

Does anybody know the answer to my question ? ??

Use an image hosting site like Dropbox, Flickr, Photobucket, etc. to host the image, then use the image url.

It's a bit of a PITA on a portable device (as are a lot of worthwhile things better done on a full size laptop), but it works.

On Photobucket in the options you can pick the size it stores the photos at and it happens automatically after that

 

I find 640 X 480 is about the best for forums and blogs
