8GB iPhone in China much cheaper!

Quite a surprise, the price of the 8 gigabyte model of Apple’s iPhone dropped a whopping 125 dollars since the last time we asked! Back in December we were running around in that big electronics store at the Hong Kong plaza and back then the price was almost 650 dollars. Now the 16 GB version is available for 690 dollar and thus the 8 GB version dropped down to 530 dollars. That’s quite a jump for just three months. The iPhones I’m talking about are unlocked and running the newest version, 1.1.4 if I’m not mistaken. One of the sellers said though, that ‘within 6 months you will be able to buy legal iPhones from China Mobile’. I wonder if he is just kidding around or if he really has inside information. As far is I know, Apple is in negotiations with China Mobile but wants too much? Well, let’s see how things are in September 2008, when the 32 GB iPhone or even 64 GB iPhone is available… […]

iPhone Wallpaper: My Contribution.

I took personal favorites out of my 200 most popular flickr pictures and converted them into the iPhone accepted wallpaper size of 320 to 480 pixels. Feel free to modify them or whatever, they are all with a creative commons license. Enjoy these free iPhone wallpapers: That’s it for now. If I can ever afford an iPhone myself, I’ll probably make more. I can’t even test them… *cry* […]

CSS Text Shadow added.

I tweaked around the blog some more and decided to add a nice text-shadow to the headlines. If you’re using a 3rd-world browser, you probably wont see it though, it’s a Safari only supported CSS thing. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve been using FireFox myself for quite some years, hell, we even organized a release party for it back in, uhm, 2003? for the very first release in Heidelberg, Germany. But when digital friend Ben introduced me the Safari plugin Saft, I tried it out and sticked with it, never looking back. Safari & Saft together kick the Fox really in the nuts. It has so many features, check it out here. It costs near to nothing for all the brilliant features offered and is a must-have for serious bloggers and surfers. The thing is that Safari makes websites look so much better by using some kind of anti-aliasing on the text. If you surf a lot and read a lot it’s so much more comfortable. Anyway, back to the CSS. So how do you use the CSS declaration in your style sheet? Here are some examples. You can only read this with Safari. Above paragraph uses the following […]

Now on my desktop.

Si, Super Mario! Thanks to Time Machine, reinstalling a oversized OS X is as easy as never before. Just restore everything from Time Machine except the applications, and you’ll get rid of all the caches and stuff that gets summed up in your hidden libraries. Awesome! And I got a neat new external 500 gigabyte big FireWire 400 hard disk for future video projects. It costed me almost 145 Euro, but compared to the 250 Euro I paid in 2005 for a 250 gigabyte big Maxtor drive it’s almost nothing… […]

Perian: Awesome FLV QuickTime plugin.

Perian I just realized, while downloading the update for Perian 1.1, that I had never recommended it before: It calls itself the “swiss-army knife for QuickTime” and it has all the reasons to do so! Perian enables QuickTime application support for additional Media Types like FLV (used by YouTube ) or HuffYUV, FFVHuff and other codecs you will never ever use in your entire life. […]
