CLLocationManager delegate method is not called in iOS4

Weird bug-easy solution.
I did have this weird issue also when updating to SDK4.0. I couldn’t get CLLocationManager to work on simulator. This problem also existed in iPhone Simulator 3.1.3.

The solution is quite weird. Open the Airport (wifi) in your mac and the CLLocationManager will work as before fetching the Cupertino, or in my case fetching a wide area of my country.
I guess the Location is estimated by the internet ip address of your connection.

Windows Vista ServicePack1

Vista Vista Upgrades….

The new vista service pack announced for some time now .. Now is actually ready and I had it in my winodows update list….

If you want to download the standalone package go : x64 | x86

Things to know before you download Windows Vista SP1

Published: March 18, 2008


  • Windows Vista SP1 is available in English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. Other languages will be made available soon.
  • Microsoft strongly recommends using Windows Update to download and install Windows Vista SP1 on single PCs:
    • The download size from Windows Update of Windows Vista SP1 for x86 is 65 MB (compared to 450 MB from the Microsoft Download Center).
    • The download size from Windows Update of Windows Vista SP1 for x64 is 125 MB (compared to 745 MB from the Microsoft Download Center).
    • Windows Update will recognize PCs with known problematic drivers and postpone downloading Windows Vista SP1 until the PC has updated drivers or other applicable updates. Using Windows Update will help ensure you have the most trouble-free update experience possible.
    • Some Windows Vista users may encounter an issue with a small set of hardware devices that may not function properly after updating a Windows Vista PC to Windows Vista SP1. This is an issue with the way the device drivers were re-installed during the Windows Vista SP1 update process, not with the drivers themselves—these drivers worked on Windows Vista RTM and they work on Windows Vista SP1. This problem is typically corrected by simply uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. We are working with the manufacturers of these devices to get the known problematic drivers and their install programs updated, and also on other solutions we can use to ensure a smooth customer experience when updating to Windows Vista SP1 using Windows Update. For new PCs provisioned with Windows Vista SP1, this is not an issue.
  • If you choose to install Windows Vista SP1 via the standalone installer available on the Microsoft Download Center, Microsoft advises that you first visit Windows Update and install all optional drivers. Read Knowledge Base Articles 948187 and 948343 for more information.
  • If you have a prior version of the Windows Vista SP1 beta installed, you must uninstall it prior to installing the final version. Use the Control Panel applet “Programs and Features” and select “View installed updates” from the top left of the task pane. Under Windows, look for “Service Pack for Windows (KB936330).
