Nam­ing shame

I’m sure there are many oth­ers out there who would also wel­come this ad­vice, as you’ve not had any in-depth reviews of wire­less modems in MacFor­mat for a while. W J Pryn Christo­pher Phin says: While we have cov­ered routers of­ten, it’s true that we haven’t re­ally in­cluded mo­dem routers much in MacFor­mat. There are a few rea­sons for this, one key one be­ing most peo­ple sim­ply use the router pro­vided by their ISP. In­deed, if you switch away from the pro­vided router, some com­pa­nies won’t be able to trou­bleshoot for you.

For the most part, to avoid this kind of com­pli­ca­tion, we rec­om­mend us­ing what­ever your ISP gives you as a mo­dem, then con­nect­ing a sep­a­rate router to it if you want some­thing with bet­ter wire­less range or ex­tra fea­tures. The Ap­ple Air­Port Ex­treme is a great op­tion if you want 802.11ac wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity with easy set-up and mon­i­tor­ing in an Ap­ple sys­tem, of course. We also like the FRITZ!Box 7490 (re­viewed in MF273), but that’s a lot more ex­pen­sive than the Air­Port Ex­treme. First let me say, I love Ap­ple and will prob­a­bly al­ways own Ap­ple prod­ucts. But I’m a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed you no longer can have a ‘business name’ vis­i­ble in your con­tacts list on iOS 7. It only shows the per­son’s name.

As a business owner, it makes it eas­ier to find the con­tact you need. Why would they take a good thing away? It’s like tak­ing a few steps back­wards! Also, why can’t you add a con­tact to a group from your con­tacts. It would much eas­ier that way.

At least they added the ar­row but­tons in iOS 8 on the key­board, so you can scroll through a word to cor­rect the spell­ing. Travis D Poliquin Matt Bolton says: We agree it’s frus­trat­ing that Ap­ple took away the dis­play of company names from the main list view in the Con­tacts app. You can still en­ter business names, and search for them, but they don’t dis­play any­where ob­vi­ous. For now, if you want this func­tion­al­ity, you’ll need to look at third­party apps. Ad­dappt is one that’s par­tic­u­larly
