Nice Design on this iPhone App for Pitch­fork Music Fes­ti­val 2011.

Though I wish there was a link to-the-top on the Info page. But over­all, sim­ple, read­able and to the point. More screens below.

News from Apple WWDC 2009

apple-wwdc-20090608-0612

For those that don’t know, Apple’s WWDC (World­wide Devel­op­ers Con­fer­ence) 2009 was this past Mon­day morn­ing at Moscone West, San Fran­cisco. It’s pri­mar­ily for those devel­op­ing for Apple’s prod­ucts (OS X, iPhone apps, etc.) but it’s also for the Apple fans out there as the Keynote usu­ally addresses new prod­uct releases, etc.

I was tuned in, lis­ten­ing to Ustream’s live stream of the Keynote.1 Pretty cool as you can mul­ti­task ver­sus hav­ing to read every new updates on a blog. Though you have to give it up though as the pho­tos on the blog updates are more eye candy.

Unlock Phones from AT&T

So in prepa­ra­tion to going to Europe, I wanted to be able to have a cell­phone (mobile) handy in case of an emer­gency. I wanted to just use the iPhone 3G but I have updated to iPhone OS 2.2.1 with a base­band of 2.30.03, which there is no (soft­ware) unlock for. Luck­ily, I still have kept my Sam­sung Black­jack (1).

Here’s what I found out when get­ting my Black­jack unlocked:

  • Call 611 (Cus­tomer Ser­vice), and not the local AT&T store.
  • Unlock­ing is “free” (accord­ing to the CSR who helped me).
  • Give your IMEI num­ber to the CSR to receive your phone’s unlock code.
  • To get your phone’s IMEI num­ber, press *#06#
  • To pro­ceed with the unlock process: 
    • Take out the SIM card if there are any first.
    • You have to do the fol­low­ing key­strokes: #7465625*638*unlock_code# (unlock_code is your own of course).
    • Your phone’s dis­play will then have some type of mes­sage that it has dis­abled a lock of some sort.

I hope that helps.

iPhone Ocarina

When you hear the word “oca­rina”, what do you think of? Well, for me, the first thing that came to mind is The Leg­end of Zelda. Though I haven’t played the 1999 Game of the Year, I still hear that mem­o­rable tune/soundtrack play­ing in my head when I think of Zelda.

Upon hear­ing that some­one made an appli­ca­tion for it on the iPhone, I just had to go see it. The appli­ca­tion is called Oca­rina.
