Cape Town based Architect and Artist, Doung Anwar Jahangeer, has spent the better part of two weeks on his hands and knees painting a bright pink line down some of the major roads in the Cape Town CBD. His latest piece of artwork follows the underground river that runs from the top of Table Mountain, down Orange Street, through the Company Gardens, past Parliament, down Adderley Street all the way through to the Cape Town Harbour where the rain water is discharged into the harbour.

Quick Scooter survey for Rob

Quick Scooter survey for Rob

Uncategorized
Rob Gilmour clearly has a LOAD of "scooter envy" at the moment as is clearly evident by his recent twitter comments regarding this specific mode of transportation around the Cape Town CBD ... Serious scooter envy. http://post.ly/Ap5f @geekrebel kinda leaning towards brand names over Chinese ones. Yamaha one looks good. Any other ideas? Anyone looking to sell a scooter? I am getting a scooter. We are being ripped off to park in CT! http://post.ly/ABRX So, I thought that I would help him out with this, envy, by adding to it. I decided to do a little undercover "scooter assessment" by checking out all of the scooters currently parked in my complex, and found the following: [caption id="attachment_475" align="aligncenter" width="200"] Some slightly old ... and purple![/caption] [caption id="attachment_474" align="aligncenter" width="200"] Pimped…

TomTom iPhone App launched for SA (unofficially)

Uncategorized
Well, according to a recent post on the MyBroadBand forum the TomTom turn-by-turn GPS iPhone application has been "unofficially" launched for the South African market! It is however apparently NOT available through the Apple AppStore, so you are going to have to come up with more constructive ways at downloading it. It's 147.24 MB in size, and works PERFECTLY !!!!! Grab it while it is still available! There is mention that you will need a jailbroken iPhone 3G or 3G[S] to install it however, so for those of you "legit" Vodacom users, you have a while to wait still!

Apple iPhone or HTC Hero Sense UI?

Apple iPhone or HTC Hero Sense UI?

iPhone, Technology, Uncategorized
My new iPhone theme - looks just like the HTC Hero Sense UI - except that it's an Apple iPhone! We know that HTC Magic owners out there are pretty psyched at the news that the HTC Sense UI is available for their Android phone. However, based on this latest news, it appears that iPhone owners also have a reason to rejoice as they too can enjoy the benefits of this new user-interface! Well, it looks kinda nice, but there is no real new functionality! [gallery link="file"] [ad name="goldschmidt inline post"] Enjoy the pics!
