More News

Rumours are circulating that Apple is planning a revival of the Newton handheld (which still kick Windows PocketPC) in a similar form factor to the iPhone. With a large high-res multitouch screen and useful features like copy & paste that the iPhone lacks, it should be more like a PDA. Obviously though, all of the [...]

WordPress 2.3

Quick note to check that the upgrade to WordPress 2.3 succeeded. Which it did. Happyness. WordPress kicks TiddilyWiki

News and Updates

Some more iPod Touch related news: first, a review from US PC World Magazine, which describes a few issues with the screen, sound quality and stability. In particular, it seems to have difficulty working with high-end headphones – something you wouldn’t expect from a “high-end” MP3 player. As usual with Apple gear, it seems that [...]

O2 gets UK iPhone Contract

That’s no help to us, since O2 aren’t a carrier here. Given their wide range of choice between Hellstra, Optarse and Vodafaux (and 3, forgot them), I wonder which Apple will choose. On the upside, 3G networks have widespread (ish) coverage here – something the US doesn’t have (they couldn’t even settle on a single [...]

iSmudginator and native apps

This is very fun, it’s an iPhone smudge and scratch simulator! It even has a cute little cleaning cloth to wipe the fingerprints away. Given the way most consumer-electronics smudge up, someone really needs to come up with a smudge-resistant surface. C’mon nanotechnology, where are you now ‘eh?! On a slightly more useful note, Gearlog [...]

Mobishop Minisite 1

This is pretty much directed at Rob: I’ve mirrored my minisite at it’s been deCMSed (if that is a word). There is a version saved with the SWF and CSS if the spiders break – you can grab that here all in one ZIP file. You can also grab the Minisite straight off the [...]

iPhone Cardboard Mockup

I hate republishing files from other peoples blogs, but since the original link to it has disappeared, google finds no leads and a few other DECO students want to print one off, I’ve put a copy of the PDF online for your very own iPhone cardboard cutout. Kudos to the original author, and of course to Apple for [...]

iPhone Mockup

I’ve quickly whipped up a little example of what you can do with standards-compliant CSS and XHTML. It’s an iPhone interface mockup. It’s not an iPhone simulator, but I intend to use this in some way to use this for some quick lo-fi evaluation.The iPhone mockup can be seen here: Oh, and on a [...]

Another Update

Sorry for the silence for the last few days, the assignment for DECO1005 has been a pain. I’m grumbling that it took 4 weeks to get the marks from our first assignment – and we ultimately did get it back, the day the next one is due… So loads of fun trying to retrofit comments [...]

The Mobishop Survey

Avast! It’s the Mobishop Survey Questionnaire thing. If you have 5 minutes for a quick survey, your responses are important to me and I value your opinons! Help me get good marks for my assignment by having real data to base my assumptions on. The survey is very shiny and it’s available online for your [...]
