Building a laser cutter using only a 1 Watt diode. Man, if only I had time…
Keep your iPhone wifi connection live. That way you’re not always turning the phone on just to access it from the Finder. Add the Insomnia SBSetting to turn this off when not in use.
The psychological benefits of schedules. Sadly I’ve found this as well. The main reason I quit doing IT is people would want me in at 9 and be in late working on the machines.
OK, I’ve been a big critic of most iPhone themes. I think they are typically pointless and almost all of them are pretty dang ugly. However I came upon a theme for the lockscreen (what pops up when you wake up your phone ready to log in) Not only is it useful (it displays the […]
So in Cydia there is this ridiculously overpriced “forward your voicemail” application for sale. Ridiculously overpriced not just because you can never be sure if it’ll survive until the next version of iOS let alone if you’ll be without a jailbreak waiting for Cydia to update to the latest iOS update. No, ridiculous because you […]
So I’d heard that Windows Live Sync was out for Mac. I’d tried an early version of this and it never really worked terribly well. This is still technically a beta but I thought I’d give it an other chance. I’m glad I did. This is definitely the choice for syncing services. Further if you […]
How to port a font to iOS.
The best reason to jailbreak your iPhone is still SBSettings. Apple’s caught up on many of the other features jailbreaking used to offer. However if you want to preserve your battery life then turning on and off WiFi, Blutooth and even 3G is a must. Seriously, the amount of battery savings doing this are huge. […]
Windows Live Sync for Mac available. I might give this an other try. In the spring I’d looked at a ton of syncing options and none of them, including Microsoft’s, were up to the task. I loved the idea of Live Sync (then Live Mesh) but it just didn’t work well in the beta.
So there have been a slew of rumors about the new version of the Apple TV out the past month or so. The latest is Kevin Rose’s “the iTV will change everything.” Color me a bit skeptical. The AppleTV (hereafter aTV because I don’t think there’s a chance in hell British network iTV will sell […]
Sharing your dotfiles. I really need to go back and reorganize all my .bash_profile stuff. Maybe that’ll be a good way to get a few more scripting posts up here.
Problems with Google adsense. Customer relations have long been Google’s achilles heel. For most of their services there is no one you can call to even get a simple answer as to what is wrong, let alone fix it. When cell carriers are a huge step up in customer service you know there’s something wrong.
1/3 of AT&T iPhone 4 users would leave to Verizon if given a chance. I bet they say that because they didn’t look at the early termination fees and having to buy a new phone. That said I hope Apple goes Verizon if only to make the network better for the rest of us who […]
What a credit card skimmer looks like. Useful information. The police busted one on the 7-11 a block from here last winter. In Orem, UT of all places.keep looking »
