How to set up Nagios SMS alerts to the iPhone to appear single-threaded, saving dozens of thumb-swipe delete actions when things get ugly.
This recent chatter about AT&T ending unlimited data had me checking my data usage for my iPhone. In reviewing my AT&T data usage, I noticed something scary. A *huge* spike in usage starting around March 10th.
Before then, I was averaging ~113mb/mo in data since 11/2009 (no more than a 20mb variance). April shot up to 624mb, that’s insane. May clocked in at 402mb and it’s looking like June will also be around 400mb.
What the hell’s going on here? I can understand somewhat of a spike in March due to my going to SXSW (although, given the connectivity there, I find that ironic). Other than that, my usage habits haven’t changed. If anything, they’ve gone down. I picked up an iPad as soon as they came out and much of my data consumption has moved there. That sort of points to it being some sort of background task or something more fundamental that’s causing trouble.
OS 3.2 came out April 3 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone_OS_version_history), but I see nothing there data related. Also, I’d think that if it were OS release related, everybody would be screaming about it.
Apps I installed around then: Words With Friends, Instapaper Pro, Reeder, MapQuest (although I’ve yet to actually launch it until just now).
What on earth is eating up so much data bandwidth?
Absolutely amazing CGI. If it weren’t for the behind the scenes clips, I’d swear most of it was just straight photography.
