Fixed! iPhone Safari Cookies Disabled: Safari Browser Settings Keep Resetting Cookies to Never Accept in iOS5 (3 3G 3GS 4 4S)
Recently, I have been running into issues with my iPhone 4 running iOS 5 (5.0.1) where when occasionally using the web browser when logging into Google or another site will tell me "cookies are disabled". Now, I had not made a single change to my settings, but when I browse the app (application) settings for the Safari browser; under Privacy the setting to Accept Cookies is changed to "Never" from either "Always" or "From Visited".
The strange part was that I was not changing the settings and I couldn't figure out for the life of me what was going on. Not to mention it was enormously frustrating that it seemed to happen often and of course at the most important times when I was trying to access something quickly
After researching several sites; it appears that all iPhones (3G 3GS 4 4S) are all impacted by the problem, if they are running iOS 5 and iCloud services. The root cause of the problem appears to be with the Bookmark syncing feature of iCloud. For me, the simple solution was to turn it off in the settings for iCloud. Since I have made the change, my "Accept Cookies" setting in the Safari application has not reverted or reset to "Never" and I have been happily using the browser.
Hopefully, you'll have the same luck.
In case you're not sure how to turn off the "Bookmarks" setting in iCloud -- here's a step-by-step guide on how you can quickly go about it and hopefully alleviate any problems you might have with your iPhone's Safari browser resetting your accept cookies status to never:
1. First, go to settings on your iPhone and select iCloud.
2. Go to the bookmarks options under iCloud settings which should be set to "On" and turn it off.
3. Choose whether you want to accept or delete the bookmarks from your iPhone. I choose "Keep on my iPhone"
4. iPhone will communicate with iCloud and turn off Bookmarks for your iPhone 3 3G 3GS 4 or 4S device.
5. Bookmarks now show as being off for iCloud on your iPhone.
If you're like me and you had problems with the iPhone Safari Browser application having the cookies settings constantly reset to never accept cookies, then this should fix your problems. Best of luck and let me know with a comment if it worked!

How to get to Maranello, Italy from Florence, Bologna, or other major cities to see the Ferrari Factory and Museum
A few weeks ago on my vacation to Italy, I decided to take a trip to Maranello, Italy to see the Ferrari museum, factory, and test drive a Ferrari F458 Italia on an hour long country drive. Having researched it well beforehand, I was surprised at how difficult information was on how exactly you do go about getting to the town of Maranello, Italy...whether you plan to visit Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagnani, or others. So difficult in fact that it took quite a bit of research and phone call to finally figure out how to do it.
To make it easy for anyone who plans to visit Maranello, Italy -- I wanted to give a quick guide on the choices you have when planning your trip to Maranello. So, here we go...
The first thing to know is that whether you are coming from Rome, Florence, Milan, Venice, or another city in Italy is that you want to get to the Bologna train station first, then connecting to the town of Modeno. From Florence, I found that you could catch a train every 30 minutes or so since Bologna is a stop for just about every train from Rome to Florence or Venice. Depending on the trains you take, the journey can take between an hour and a half to two and a half hours to get all the way to Modena ( from Florence ).
Once you arrive in Bologna, the trains to Modena are generally on the East (OST) tracks, which are set apart from the main tracks. If you have a tight connection, you might need to move quickly.
Then upon arrival in Modena, is when the fun begins. You have two choices of transportation to Maranello which is about 20 minutes away by cab or 30 minutes by bus. Here are how your options look:
1. Taxi -- by far the quickest and most comfortable, but the most expensive. A Taxi from the Modena train station to the heart of Maranello where Ferrari is will cost you $30-40 in euros, but is by far the quickest. Even with a few people in your party, the cost will be 3-4 times the public transportation each way and could also save you up to an hour and a half each way.
2. Public bus. First, take bus number 7 to the main train station...about 3 stops away. The drivers may not speak English and they do not take cash. The ticket will cost you euro $1.20 as of this posting. The machine on the bus does not take bills or give change so be aware. I only had a 2 euro coin, so I donated .80 to the next person to use it. The #7 bus runs every 15 minutes.
Once you arrive at the bus station, go directly to the bus station office across the street. Fortunately, the nice agents I ran into spoke great English and I purchased the continuation fare to Maranello from Modena for euro 2.60. The issue I ran into was that the bus runs only once per hour, on the hour (at the time of this post), so I had 50 minutes to burn before boarding the "80" (Linea 80) bus to Maranello. Once aboard, it should take approximately 30 minutes and you get off at the second Ferrari exit, walk to the corner and turn left to get to the Ferrari Museum and Push Start area.
Tip: If you plan on returning via bus, purchase your return tickets in advance at the bus station as it may be difficult from Maranello.
What did I actually do? On the way to Maranello, Italy -- I took the public bus route to get out to the Ferrari Factory, Museum, etc. On the way back, I took a taxi that I shared with a couple of other folks I met while I was there. The decision for you comes down to time vs. money. In my case, having done the trip now -- I would rather take a Taxi both ways; save at least 1 hour and have more time to spend in the town of Maranello. That'd be my preference knowing you have a limited amount of time to spend and there is so much to see an hear!
Have any questions? Ask in the comments below. Otherwise, good luck and enjoy your trip to Maranello, Italy!

Checking in with a quick post on VMWare Fusion as I completed my OS X (OSX) upgrade to Lion just a couple of days ago. What I have noticed, specifically in VMWare Fusion version 3.1.1 is that on an infrequent basis, when I am running Windows 7 in a full screen mode I get what I would consider to be a shimmy, bump, or vibration in the video once in awhile. It occurs frequently enough to be annoying, but not enough to be completely disruptive.
Has anyone else seen this problem?
Wondering if it could be a video driver or potential OS X (10.7) Lion issue with VMWare Fusion. Please post below if you have any ideas / solutions. I'll make sure to update this post once I find something out.
