Earlier when I plugged my iPhone into my laptop via USB to charge it I got a pop up error message stating that the sync process with iTunes could not take place because the iPhone backup was corrupted. I believe yesterday in the middle of syncing with iTunes I had to unplug my iPhone and it must have corrupted the backup that was in process. Fixing this problem is easily accomplished by deleting the backup file that iTunes stores. Below I have more details about the error itself as well as steps on how to resolve the issue.
Today I had to use iRdesktop on my iPhone to perform some tasks on a Windows 7 computer at my house via a Remote Desktop Connection. The iRdesktop application allows you to make connections to Windows Remote Desktop on your iPhone or iPod Touch. While performing my tasks I needed to right click a file and wasn’t exactly sure how to do it with iRdesktop. After some playing around with the application I figured out how to right click from within the iRdesktop application. Below there is more information on how to right-click using iRdesktop on your Apple iDevice.
I typically charge my iPhone using a USB cable that attaches to my computer but recently I have been using the wall charger because my computer wasn’t always close. After using the wall charger for a week or so without ever actually syncing my iPhone to iTunes on my Windows 7 computer I attempted to synchronize my iPhone to my computer but received an error related to synchronizing the calendar during the process. I hadn’t modified any settings that I was aware of on the iPhone or within iTunes on the Windows 7 computer so I wasn’t exactly sure what caused the issue to begin with. Below is more information related to the calendar synchronization error and how I was able to resolve the error with one simple setting in iTunes.

I downloaded the Slicehost Pro iPhone application a long time ago and didn’t have much time at that point to look into what the issue might be. After not getting the Slicehost iPhone app working immediately I pretty much forgot about it until I needed it recently. This time around I spent more time looking into what the issue might be and as able to come up with a solution fairly regularly. Below I describe the error in detail, how to resolve the error, and another possible error you might see including the resolution if you do see the second error.
