Background Modes in iOS Tutorial. I've never worked on iOS, so I'm not clear on everything this article talks about, but this makes some things I consider entirely unexceptional on Android sound almost insanely awkward under iOS (aside for all the other things that sound really awkward under iOS, like installing onto your own apps onto your own phone).

A few weeks ago, I was sitting outside opposite the British Museum having a pint with a friend. We both work from home for London based outfits, making occasional forays into the capital by train and travelling within London by bike. We were talking about traffic in Enlightenment London, where the easiest way to travel around was by foot and, in any case, only rich people could afford hire or own sedan chairs or horse drawn carriages. Of course, traffic speeds in modern London are barely above those of four hundred years ago, so well inside the congestion zone we started noting the passing cars. The stream of traffic was something like taxi, taxi, large BMW, taxi, large Mercedes, taxi, Range Rover, chauffeur driven BMW, taxi, taxi, and so on and so on. We weren't conducting a rigourous survey, but it did seem that ever car passing was what Harry calls a prat car - the modern day equivalent of those rich men's carriages.
