At the moment there seems to be nothing you can do to get this update over the air other than keep trying.

In the meantime make sure your phone is backed up and all your important data saved by either preforming an iCloud Backup or a iTunes Backup, preferably both!

When you have got yourself backed up get yourself over to iTunes and try the software update from there, it is currently downloading without issue for me and numerous other users are reporting the same…

04/09/2014 : Soccer Saturday Chosen Bets

If you follow my Twitter (@TomBoyNI) you will have noticed I have just posted up my three chosen bets for the day.

Generally speaking I do three bets on a Saturday, a big one (#thebigone), which is a huge accumulator which if it comes good pays out hugely. This week for example it sits at over 900/1. I have never hit this.

But here it is…

Then there is my both teams to score bet (#btts #bothteamstoscore). This is seven matches where I fancy both teams in the fixture hitting the back of the net. This is a fixed odds bet at 55/1. Last season I hit this twice and that pays for the rest of the season!

Here it is…

And finally I do a reasonably safe accumulator of five or six strong favourites. It is by no means a certainty but it often makes for an anxious second half. I hit this only a few times last season.

Here it is…

If you follow me good luck to us both! Only bet what you can afford to loose, and remember these bets are big odds, they are just a bit of entertainment for the best show on TV – #SoccerSaturday

Good luck!

Europa League 18/09/2014 – Go Mad and Bet the Lot!

I haven’t posted up a bet in a while and I thought that as tonight is Thursday night’s favourite TV, the Europa League I would have a wee flutter on that.

Two things to note however:

1. The Europa League is so unpredictable it makes betting on it pretty risky, and
2. Th new iPhone 6 is out tomorrow!

So here is my opinion, back the lot, go nuts, cross your fingers and if you get a win it’ll pay for your new phone. All you will have to do is get up extra early, go out and join the queue and throw your money at an Apple Store!

So here we go, fingers crossed, low stakes for a big gain, and to be fair with the way the Europa League plays it would be more fair if the bookies were offering 1000/1!

Apple iPhone 5s – Does it Blend?!? – Just Kidding – Just a Regular Unboxing!

I have temporarily fallen behind in my posts mainly due to the fact that I was without a computer for the best part of two months there. Well today my new iMac arrived in its 27″ of glory, so that’s me back on track. I am going to throw up a few quick galleries and posts of stuff that I gathered up in my computerless times, but in order to make some progress I wont be dwelling on them.

The first such gallery is my iPhone 5s unboxing. This is a release day model, 64Gb white, silver iPhone 5s, which I purchased with, the new to the UK, AppleCare+

It was picked up on release day from the Apple Store in Belfast, and I only had to queue from 3.30am! (Stocks were that low however that I had to updrage to the 64Gb model as the 32Gb were all sold out, there were only about 50 people in front of me!)

My initial opinions on this phone are great. This is another excellent device released by Apple, with the freshness of iOS7 a new lease of life has been given to the phone.

The camera is brilliant, the slow-mo addition is one of my favourite new additions and the fingerprint scanner brings a wee bit of the future a little bit closer.

I will throw up a few more tips / tricks / thoughts if and when I have them, until such times here is my gallery…

20/09/2013 – Happy iPhone 5s Day

So I completed my annual iPhone queuing yesterday at the Apple Store, Belfast returning home with a new white iPhone 5s 64GB.

Stocks were certainly low and the gold variant sold out almost instantly.

I can anticipate that desirability will increase rapidity now as stocks of other models sell out. Prices on eBay are already well inflated.

I will follow up with my thoughts and feelings on the IPhone5s and iOS7 in due course.

If you got one, enjoy!

21st September 2012 – iPhone 5 Launch Day – Unboxing and Quick Thoughts!

iPhone5

Any Apple Launch Day now is a big one, and this one was the biggest so far.  Queues have been reported as 83% bigger for this release of the iPhone 5 than they were for last years iPhone 4s’ event.

I have to agree with this, as I opted to sleep in a little as last year wasn’t really that much of an issue, so when I arrived at the queue this morning at a little after 05.30 am at the Apple Store, Victoria Square, Belfast I was horrified and also a little impressed to see no less than 300 people already in the queue!

At shortly after 11am I left the store with a little bag containing a white 32Gb iPhone 5 – Sweet!

And that is exactly what it is – SWEET!
