Mac + Cellphone = Mobility!

For those of you who are trying to get your cellphone to work with your Macbook so you can wirelessly surf via 3G or GPRS speeds anywhere in the country. Let me point you in the right direction. Here are a couple of resources to look for stuff to make it work:


- this link provides for different phone modem scripts in case your phone is like Nokia who loves to make it just a bit more exciting. Sony ericsson phones are straightforward.


- this is a link to a forum discussing the subject.

Have fun! Ive found that surfing on the Mac seems to be quicker than on windows.. go figure.

3G on the Nokia N95 with Smart Telecom

For you 3G speed fanatics, here's a speed test of the Nokia N95's modem connected to my Sony UX UMPC (computer) over a bluetooth connection. This is using Smart's 3G Service. YouTube was playing smoothly without hick ups as well as being online with yahoo messenger. Did this from the root top of my house.

Nokia N95 in the House!

Got me a Nokia N95 after having sold my current phone the Treo 680 and Dopod 838 Pro.
Was quite fortunate that this was the only remaining stock left as I got it today. Wasnt really
thinking they would even have any in stock yet, especially this holy week (no deliveries).

At any rate, its turning out to be a very very excellent choice given everything thats packed into it! have tried out the 5.0 Megapix camera, GPS Locator, 3G Video Streaming, Wifi, TV-out, Watching Youtube, posting pics to Flickr.. does almost everything i need to do on the Net. Oh! and it makes phone calls too! =P

Japanese TV Show - "Silent library"

I dare you to try and not laugh watching this show, its almost impossible! you'll see what I mean when you watch these guys go into a library and do dumb-ass pranks on each other while having to keep total silence! reminds me of high school =)

Macbook Running Vista

For those of you, who like me just need to have both Windows and Mac OS X running on a Macbook, here is evidence that both run flawlessly on a Macbook. NOTE: Vista AERO graphics works flawlessly on the Macbook using bootcamp 1.2 software. Go buy a Macbook!! I just did =)

The suspense is killing me..

Reasons why I love Macro Photography!

Who says one needs to travel to get the most amazing photos, when you can simply be creative and find lots of shots in your own coffee cup. An example is this shot of milk dropping into coffee.

Open Music

For those of you who buy songs from the
Apple iTunes store, you may come to know that they are practically non-transferable. Meaning you can't copy these songs over to other ipods or other portable players like your cellphone or another brand of mp3 player. The technology that makes sure that you cant is called "DRM" or Digital Rights Management. Both Apple and Microsoft have their own way of placing DRM unto the music they sell online.

This is the only way the record companies have agreed to selling music online at a low price, it protects/assures them that you can only listen to what you paid for and where you can only listen to it, on your ipod only.
This is one of the reasons why some may still hesitate to purchase legal music over the net and opt for free pirated music from peer to peer networks like limewire or torrents.

Apple's big honcho Steve Jobs wrote a letter supporting the move to selling "DRM-Free" or "copy protection free" music on their store if it weren't for record labels refusing to try this new concept out. Fortunately, one music label namely EMI (who carries the Beatles music) has taken the leap into agreeing to free their songs of DRM protection.
The conditions "to be" for selling DRM-free music on the iTunes music store would be:

- You'll pay a 30% premium for them to remove the DRM that you didn't want in the first place
- But in return for audio files that you can move across multiple computers and devices
- You'll also get higher quality sound: the $1.29 tracks are encoded in 256 kbps AAC format as opposed to the DRM-tunes at 128 kbps in AAC
- You can pay an additional $.30 a track to "upgrade" tunes you already own to higher quality.

Which labels are next to follow? More importantly, which on-line music stores will offer the same or do they need to? Will folks just buy the DRM tracks from iTunes and move to their Microsoft Zune players or cellphones? whatever the effect will be it will still be a win for the open world we live in today, thanks to the champions of the IT industry.
