Been awhile I’ve wrote.

But yes, I finally got my iPhone for xmas. Bought it during Thanksgiving at an AT&T store in Troy near Detroit. It’s got the 1.1.1 firmware, didn’t realized at the time. But all newer 1.1.2 firmware is currently still not able to unlock. I tried to get another one for my friend a month later, and couldn’t find one with 1.1.1.

Phew!

Anyhow, did some research, found out the easiest way to unlock, that took me around 10mins, with no computer required, just WIFI! Dead simple…

I’m enjoying the phone alot, there were bunch of apps that I can install, but really hope when Apple release the SDK next February, there would be floods of new apps to play with.

If you are lucky to get the 1.1.1 iphone, here is the simple instructions similar to what I’ve used :

The new Leopard OS X icons are huge, they can be as large as 512×512.

But check out the standard “generic PC Icon” that Apple decided to bundle with Leopard :

I’ve been waiting and waiting for a legit iPhone in Canada, but if rumors is true that it will come at a price tag of $799 with contract, then I will pass.

Unlocked iPhone is going around at $600 street price, with Canada and US$ at parity, this would be simply a case of gouging, I have enough of this crap, and would say see ya Rogers.

Although I will end up using Rogers network anyway for their monopoly in GSM. =(

I hope it is not true :

iPhone Ringtones
There was a lot of people ridiculing the idea of Apple’s new Ringtones service.

Their main point being having to pay twice for something you own. Well, those who have bought ringtones from anywhere else in the first place are idiots anyways.

BUT everyone have a right to buy whatever they wish, if I have a gazillion bucks, I wouldn’t care less what you call me, I’ll pay that extra. Why, because Apple did created the software to make it easy for me to edit and create my own personalized ringtone, it’s convenient.

I don’t see why people should complain. If someone is stupid enough to buy a ringtones in the first place off other ringtone websites, then decided to buy the songs, they still have to pay twice. Also if I couldn’t careless about a few bucks worth of ringtones (how many ringtones you gonna need anyways?), I would pay that just to get my personalized DIY ringtones which I couldn’t get from other ringtones services in the first place. It’s really your choice, and Apple is just giving you this better service/convenience to get what you want, so why complain when Apple is not really forcing you to buy?

Since you are not stupid, and you don’t want to pay that extra bucks, stop whinning and do it yourself here :

Here is another one from moillusions.com.

Spinning Silhouette

This one is mind boggling, you probably see her spinning clockwise, now focus downward on the shadow, and then look up again, do you see her now spinning counter-clockwise?

Take a look closely at A & B Square, obviously they are different colors, or maybe not?

absamecolour3cm.gif

By going through Photoshop, the picker did reveal them both square as identical colors, how is that possible?

Yes, it’s your eyes playing tricks on yourself, as human vision tends to base level of light/dark from the surrounding colors.

I have seen this image a few years ago, thanks to moillusions.com to bring this back and giving some good explanations…

I used to own an original Apple IIc, boy did I felt special back then, when there were so many Apple IIe clones.
It was fun times, and I really made full used of the IIc, but I have no clue where it is now.
Now I want it back… anyone have one buried in the basement for sale? Please give it to me and I will take good care of it, and I will make good use of it again.

Just like how this guy is doing :
>> Apple //c as a Dumb Terminal

Resurrected Apple IIc put into good use!

At first, I thought this 10 year old singer Julia Abueva is incredible, such nice voice for her age.

But now there is this 6 year old little Connie Talbot at the Britain’s Got Talent show. She don’t even have any front teeth, but her voice is so angelic, check her out :

And here is another video at the final.

iPhone is finally out, there were a few video (here and here) out already showing how it was used… so far it looks good.

But ThinkSecret right away wants to look at the inside, and took one apart.

Unfortunately, it’s no pretty job, and I doubt it will ever be able to put back together :O

dead iPhone
