1. In iOS 6, Ping is no longer in the menu bar.
2. Nobody uses it much.
3. The new iTunes will display this information more elegantly without the help of Ping.
For those who don't know what Ping is, iTunes Ping is Apple's version of Facebook. But for music. It would show what music you like and buy. It also gives you concert information. Ping was released in September 2010 with the breakthrough iTunes 10. iTunes 10 also came with AirPlay and HD TV show rentals for 99¢.
Some features like concert information will be kept and will be in the new iTunes coming later this October.

Take one app and hold it over the app you want in the folder by its self until it reveals a folder. Without releasing the app, press the home button (bottom button with square). Then, hold the app that you don't want in the folder and drag it outside of the folder. Don't try making a folder and simply removing the app from the folder because that just removes the folder. At least that's what it does for me.

When your iOS device is completely frozen (and that includes unresponsive buttons), hold the lock button (top button) and the home button (bottom button with circle) until the screen goes black. Then hold the lock button until the screen turns on again. You should do this very rarely in your device's life.
At First Glance:
When you first see the phone, it looks somewhat different. It comes in two colors. The black color looks sleeker. The white color looks like a jewel. Last I checked, people like jewels. The texture of the back side feels nice to just feel. It doesn't even feel taller. Just lighter. Crazy light. How does that work? It's magic.
This camera is amazing! The camera lens is made out of sapphire crystal. When you use it, you can take up to five shots in one second. Just compare it with a 4S. It's faster than already fast. Panorama pictures are also amazing! They are so pretty. And it's so easy to make one.
With the brand new A6 chip and LTE networking, the new iPhone is very fast from downloading an app to talking to Siri. What else is there to say? It's fast and powerful.
iOS 6 comes with many new features. iPhone 5 takes advantage of all of them. Hands down, my absolute favorite iOS 6 feature has to be Passbook. If you're looking to fill your virtual wallet, try the Starbucks app or the Target app and sign up for Mobile Coupons. Also, Siri is very accuate even in a noisy Apple Store. For Maps, I know about the flaws and Apple is working hard to fix them. Otherwise, I think the Apple Maps app is great. I love the new "Tap to Resume Navigation" feature.
Although the Lightning connector is hard to test out the reversibility feature because of the docking system (Sure Apple! Why not make a dock only for Apple Stores and their resellers?), I did try it and it was functional and a great feature.
All in all, the iPhone 5 is the most amazing iPhone yet. From it's look to it's features, I highly recommend this as your next phone. Because of that, I give it five out of five geek glasses for a great camera, speed, OS, and other great features…
of the carrier limitations like the inability to use data while on a call.

P.S. The iOS review takes a long time to write. I hope to have it out by the end of the weekend.

We do not plan on making a dock for the iPhone 5. Most people who use docks use them with speaker or clock systems.

I recently obtained one Galaxy Nexus 7 for the weekend. It's pretty much a 7" tablet. It's the the perfect opportunity for a review. Right away, the device seemed very heavy for it's size. And to use any app, you must have a Google account. When signing in, it takes a long time because it's tailoring the tablet together for you. A great part about it is that it can fit it in your pocket. But when I was needing another hand, the tablet was in my hand and a drink in another. I couldn't put it in my pocket with one hand and there was no where to put the drink. Pocket powers couldn't help me there. While blogging on this, I found the keyboard and text editing was much harder than an iOS device. Also, the home screen is hard to navigate without any apps on a page. The navigation bar at the bottom is very hard to see too. All the permissions you must approve for apps and Google Accounts can be a pain too. Although, I must say that the updates feature on the contact list was a nice touch. I'm going to finish this review on my iPad because this keeps deleting some of my work. It just did it again!!! Not to mention, I've only had this for an hour!! People are starting to stare. However, the voice to speech is good. Now people think I'm crazy because I'm talking and yelling at a tablet. By the way, if you start to type, "feature", it suggests the word, "death". In my house, there's a rule about Droids. "Don't throw it out the window!"
