Rush, rush, rush…. from the iPhone dev team

Uncategorized
Over the last year we’ve discovered some interesting things about the software used in the iPhone. These “hacks” , “exploits”  and “techniques”, or whatever you want to call them, are valuable - not only from a financial perspective (so scummy people can sell unlocking software) but also from a strategic point of view. Think of it like a game of poker, showing your hand too early would certainly make you lose “the game”. The majority of iPhone users are not technical - they want an easy, one-stop, simple application that will allow them to quickly and painlessly unlock their phone. If we were to release a crummy command-line based tool that does the immediate job that everyone is screaming for, we’d only end up in the following situation: 1) The…

Lotto millionaire goes back to work… at McDonald’s

Uncategorized
Lotto millionaire Luke Pittard has gone back to his old job at McDonald's - because he's bored. Wealthy Luke, nicknamed McMillion by workmates, won £1,369,847 and hasn't cashed his pay cheque since his return. Luke, 25, said yesterday: "It's not for the money. Earning £5.85 an hour doesn't bother me. But I needed to start doing things. You can only go shopping a certain number of times before you start seeing the same things. It was getting boring and repetitive and I put on a stone in weight. I was eating constantly. I enjoy going to work. It's better than staying at home all day." All my mates work here. People don't tell me what to do and when it's busy I don't get stressed any more. It's like I've…

Excellent Service from Gadget Mania

Uncategorized
I was recently looking online at a whole lot of American websites to purchase two items which I assumed could not be purchased locally for various reasons. The first was an Full screen protector for the iPhone, and the second was also for an iPhone, but was a Silicone case for the iPhone (Black). The prices were quite reasonable, but the shipping and the wait was a killer! So, I decided that local would have to be better!!! The BEST online South African store I found was Gadget Mania. I have to say that they seem to have a medium range of Apple products (as well as other Audio products) on offer and they are incredibly fast, friendly and efficient! I wasted no time in placing my order. Payment was…

How to forward email, CORRECTLY !!!

Other
It is an excellent article that ABSOLUTELY applies to ALL of us who send emails. Do you really know how to forward emails? 10% of us do; 90% DO NOT. Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it? Every time you forward an email there is information left over from the people who got the message before you, namely their email addresses and names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds, and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for some poor sap to get a virus, and his or her computer can send that virus to every email address that has come across his computer. Or, someone can take all of those addresses and sell them or send…
