Xcode's interesting behaviour

After renaming a XIB in Xcode, the application would load the old XIB file (even if it did not exist anymore). One would assume that trying to load an nonexistent file would throw an error about that particular file. Well, with Xcode, because it has some weird caching system, the error that crashed the app refereed to one of the missing objects that were deleted before renaming the file.

So... if anyone had this problem, triple check if you load the right XIB name in your code because if there ever existed a file named like that and got deleted, the app will load it from cached information.

iPhone 4s - Reminders

Today I discovered/remembered that iOS 5 came with a really nice feature: Location Based Reminders.

You can have the iPhone trigger the reminders' alarm at a certain Date & Time or at a location (when you leave or arrive at it). 

I find this option useful for stuff like: when I arrive home I should water the plants or take the dog for a walk.

Apple gets a +1 for this one!

Internet WOL app for iPhone

I've been searching for an iPhone app that could wake a computer outside the LAN.
After installing a few apps, I discovered WOL Control.
The dots in the mac address are added automatically and the computer info (ip/host, port, mac) is remembered.
It small, simple, easy to use and IT WORKS!
