There has been a disturbance in the Force lately. People have been shooting videos on their mobile phones… in portrait mode!
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.
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.
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.
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.
