Usain Bolt Celebrates Early … Very Early

Just How Bright is the New PSP-3000?

/* Posted August 25th, 2008 at 8:49am [Comments: 2]    */
/* Filed under PSP, Sony    */

Famitsu has a few screenshots of the new PSP-3000 which will be physically indistinguishable from the current PSP slim the PSP-2000… That is until you turn on the screen. The PSP-3000 purportedly has a brighter screen and this screenshot will give you an idea just how much an improvement it is over the PSP-2000, not that it was all that shabby to begin with. Other small nuances are the swapping of the PS logo for SONY and a smaller silver ring on the UMD cover. Read more »

Microsoft Photosynth

Microsoft Photosynth

Photosynth is a free application made by Microsoft. What is does is construct 3d environments from a bunch of photos. It was launched yesterday (Wed Aug 21st, 2008). On launch day, they experianced too many hits and went down. From what I have seen so far, it looks interesting.

Photosynth takes a collection of regular photographs and reconstructs them in a 3D environment. It could take Flickr photos of a monument like Notre Dame Cathedral from hundreds of separate accounts and compile them into one, continuous shot of the cathedral and its surroundings.

Users can install Photosynth at photosynth.net. All photos that are added to the site will be public and visible to anyone on the Internet. It is currently only available on Windows-based machines running XP and Vista, and users will have to sign up for a Windows Live ID to access Photosynth.

How to Disable Apple’s iPhone “Kill Switch”

/* Posted August 21st, 2008 at 2:10pm [Comments: 3]    */
/* Filed under Apple, How-To, iPhone    */

Earlier this month, iPhone application developers discovered a hidden kill switch in the latest iPhone firmware (2.0+). The kill switch allows Apple to remotely delete or disable any unauthorized applications running on your iPhone, including any cracked Monkey Balls or Crash Bandicoots. The code contains a string called “unauthorizedApps” whose purpose is unknown. Apple acknowledged the existence of the hidden kill switch but claimed that it was not currently in use. Steve Jobs did not outwardly deny that it would never be used, merely saying that he hoped it would never have to happen. Whatever that means…

At any rate, jailbroken 2.0 iPhone users are in luck as BossPrefs version 2.12b contains a way to disable the kill switch to prevent any such thing from happening. Read more »

How to Migrate Your Apple iTunes Library

/* Posted August 21st, 2008 at 11:29am [Comments: 6]    */
/* Filed under Apple, iPhone, iPod, Music    */

If full automatic sync’ing is to be utilized in iTunes, your iPhone or iPod can only be sync’ed with one music library on one computer. This isn’t really a big issue until you upgrade or migrate to another one. What about your painstakingly organized iTunes library? The process is actually pretty painless, especially if you’ve got an arrangement like mine. Read more »
