Mark His Words!

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Gooapple=iPhone+Android. WTF?

Check out this video from Youku.com first. Don’t know if you guys can view the video outside China or not, but can you honestly believe it?

First of all, it looks exactly like an iPhone 4. Secondly, everything inside looks almost 99% the same from the video. And it supports multitasking and folder like iOS 4 does, and new push notification from iOS 5, amazing. However, it is not an iPhone 4, it runs modified Android. It is incredible, how could they, on earth, do it? I don’t know how much this thing costs, but I’d like to have one in addition to my genuine iPhone 4 to get hands on experience with Android.

On the other hand, I mean is there any possibility of infringement to… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Apple Puts iCloud in Action Already?

Today when I opened App Store on my iPhone, I saw a “Purchased” in Updates so I clicked it and it led me to a screen like the screenshot below:

In it it lists out the apps that I have deleted from my computer and a cloud icon on the right. I thought I removed all the apps that I did not need anymore but I didn’t. Well it may be good, or not.  Apple is fast!… Continue reading | 1 Comment

ABC World News Video Podcast Discontinued in iTunes?

I have been watching ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, and it was quite good to know what goes on around the world, I love the podcast, but sadly the “final pod cast” was released on April 7th reported David Muir. He only said the video podcast was no longer available in iTunes but full episodes are available on ABC website.  However he did not explain the reason.

I liked the first generation of iPad, in fact, I like Apple products, well most of them. It turned out that iPad was not suitable for me after playing it around few times, of course it was in the Apple Store and from my friends. First of all it was too heavy, after I held it for like 10 minutes, my hands felt tired… Continue reading | 1 Comment

iPad No Wifi After Upgrading to iOS 4.2.1

One of my friends came to me and showed me that Wi-Fi of his iPad  was not functional, in Settings, the Wi-Fi was grayed out, it reads “No Wi-Fi”. Also the Bluetooth was unavailable and grayed out too, go to General – About, the Bluetooth address showed 00:00:00:00:00,  I could not do anything but to restore iOS.

First I connected it to PC to do restore, it took a while to restore in iTunes, but it was completed successfully. However, checking it again, the option was still grayed out. I was suspecting computer system problems, and I switched to my MacBook and did the restore again, the issue remained. I started to think it was hardware problem, but I was not convinced by that.

Again, I went to Dev Team… Continue reading | 3 Comments

Stream Audio with Airport Express

I recently bought the Apple Airport Express after reading numerous comments about it. It looked very nice when I got it, well, Apple’s products are always attractive in design, that is the reason I like them. I tested in my office and it was fine to join and extending current wireless network. I went home and I hooked it up to the LAN and the power speaker I bought not long ago.  I tried to use the utility to scan and it could not be discovered. It took me 2 hours to finally got it work.  I realized that something was wrong with the setting I did earlier, and not the new firmware that was widely commented as the cause.
