June 17, 2009, Apple birthed a new iPhone firmware which caused possibly one of the biggest server hiccups to date. If you own an iPhone, then you probably encountered the dreaded message, Â â€œiPhone activation servers are temporarily unavailableâ€. I nearly popped a blood vessel in my eye when I read that error message. Being the impatient iPod fanboy that I am, I stood in front of my Mac for the next 2 hours clicking the update button to no avail. After what seemed like years (2 hours and 18 minutes to be exact), I was finally prompted by the wondrous message â€œpreparing iPhone for updateâ€.Â My pleas had been answered.
