A very big Sorry to all of you!!

Hey, kick me, punch me, abuse me! I know I deserve it all! I have not posted for 2 weeks in a row!!! Sorry, all the communtiy members and the viewers. I am here to clear all your doubts and rumors. I am not leaving this “job”. I had gone for my summer vacations to Parwanoo, its a nice place. Btw, it am covering for the left posts now.

 

Ok, I am writing about me experience of playing Sims on the DS. We all know that Sims is a good game, actually a great game.. but I prefer playing it on the computer or on the PS.  DS has  a small screen and you dont get the “feel”. I suggest that poeple should try games like COD.

Another tip:  There is this new range of mouse for the computer by Moserbaer. Its slim and soo attractive. It is anytime better th4an the original “fat” mouse. Try it..

 

Also, The Second gen iPhone is almost near relase!!!! I am going to buy it, what about you?? Check my Second Gen iPhone post in the ‘Apple’ category’

I am posting this from a friends house, and I have to leave, so please forgive me for such a short post. :) I know that this is not my day, but I am just covering up for myself :þ

Apple Launches second generation iPhone!!

First of all, sorry V1 and Volatire and all the other community members that I posted this without it being my day, but I felt it was very very important to relase this news to the public. So we’ve got it on authority that the second-gen iPhone is already well into testing, and numerous units are floating around in super secret pockets. A trusted source got a chance to check one out, here’s what I’ve heard.

  • The first thing people will notice: the 2nd gen iPhone will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
  • It will, of course, have 3G. And proper GPS!
  • The most noticeable physical difference is back of the phone is no longer metal — the whole thing is glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
  • Because it’s got a little less metal to deal with, it doesn’t have quite as many angular edges. The battery is (still) not removable.
  • The phone itself will be slightly thicker than the first gen device.
  • The headphone jack will no longer be recessed, and will finally be flush with the body.
  • The device itself uses roughly the same size and resolution screen as the first generation product.
  • No solid word on battery life or storage capacity.

Radio
iPhone 2.0 will be 3-G. If it is to stand any chance in the as-yet-untapped Japanese market, a fast data connection is a must. The official line from both Apple and AT&T is that a 3-G iPhone will ship this year, and as two launches in one year are unlikely, we can only assume that there will be one international 3-G iPhone. Certainly, the Infineon chipset expected to power the new phone will work on both HSDPA and WCDMA networks, as well as continuing to support EDGE for customers outside of good 3-G coverage.

Camera
The iPhone’s camera sucks(I forgot that all age groups visit this website). It offers the user no more than the most basic functionality and only captures a measly two megapixels. It’s so bad that a range of unofficial software upgrades has already been released, adding new features and even video. The Infineon chipset mentioned above supports cameras of up to 5 megapixels and also video capture using Apple’s codec of choice, h.264. So more pixels and video seem very likely, but what of video calls? Apple’s Mac application iChat has had video conferencing for some time. It would be a perfect match for the iPhone’s big bright screen, but that would entail a second camera. I’d give this one a 50-50 chance.

Software
Software is arguably the most important part of the iPhone. Ever since its launch last year, seemingly every cellphone maker has released a touchscreen phone. None of them comes close in ease of use, because none of them understands that the interface is everything.

The currently beta iPhone SDK shows us that the v2.0 operating system will be an incremental upgrade, adding niceties such as search and, if we’re lucky, copy-and-paste. With the iPod, Apple has often held new features back from older models in order to drive sales. Part of this is the accounting model it uses: In order to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley (or Oxshit) laws, Apple won’t add new features to old hardware. The iPhone, though, like the Apple TV, is accounted for on a subscription basis. Expect the v1.0 iPhone to run the exact same software as the new one, exempting features which utilize new hardware.

For current iPhone Users:
Ok, first of all bad luck for us (even I have an iPhone!). Even though Apple will introduce a 2.0 upgrade which can be downloaded via the installer.app which will provide all the features which will be present in the 2nd gen iPhone, we wont be able to experience the beautiful and exotic body of the iPhone. I have got some pictures of the new iPhone but I am not 100% sure that it is the iPhone, I think it is only a case:2nd gen iPhone

It really is soooo coool! To see all the features please go to the official Apple iPhone 2nd gen website.

Now it’s your turn. What do you expect to see? Suggestions in the comments.

iPhone themes and battery life.

Well, first of hi!! I am new to this underground community and will work here as an author. My name is Jvalin but you can call me Tizil7 :) This is my first post and I will try to make your’s a memorable experience here:) I will try and include all I can so, here it is:

I. Lets start with iPhone advice.
    a)Themes (How to apply them without downloading from Installer App.)
      

1. First, you will need to use the installer.app and install OpenSSH on your iPhone.
2. You will then need to install WinSCP on your computer. To connect to WinSCP you will need to go into your settings on your iPhone into Wi-fi, click on the little arrow next to the Wi-Fi you are connected to and get the ip address. Now open WinSCP on your computer….the Host Name is your ip address (with the periods) the user name is root and the password is alpine. Don’t worry about the Private key file, you don’t need to put anything there. Hit login.
3. Once WinSCP opens, the themes go into the var/root/library/SummerBoard/Themes folder. Once you are in that folder you will see all the themes that are on your iPhone. This is where you will want to add your new themes.
4. Create a folder somewhere on your computer that is the title of the theme you would like to add (ex…Chalkwork) then inside of the Chalkwork folder create another folder called Icons (with a capital “I”). Inside the Icons folder put all of the icon images that you would like to have. They must be named the same as the Title of the app, starting with a capital (Ex…Calendar, Customize, SummerBoard, Photos, Stocks….). You can also add a Dock and Wallpaper to the Chalkwork folder, they also need to be capitalized (do not put them in the Icons folder…just in the main Chalkwork folder). Once you have a folder of the theme with a folder of icons inside it you just drag the whole folder, Chalkwork, into Themes on WinSCP and hit Copy. Once it is done transferring you can go on your iPhone into SummerBoard and select the theme you just added. Note: your iPhone has to be on for the file to transfer!
5. If you are downloading a theme that is in a zip file…you will have to open the zip file and then create a folder on your computer that is the same name as the theme you are trying to download. Then copy the Icons folder from the zip file into the folder you created on your computer. This unzips the file so that you can add it to SummerBoard through WinSCP. You can also copy the wallpaper and dock out of the zip file into the file you created if you would like them too.

Hope this little guide helped all those who needed it. :)

b) Increasing battery life.

1. Go to Settings>Mail>AutoCheck>Manual (This will save your battery by 50%)
2. Go to Settings>Mail>Push Mail Account>Advanced>Turn Off (Use this if you have a pushmail account)
3. Autocheck fewer e-mail accounts.
4. If you rarely use Wi-Fi, you can turn it off to save power. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and set Wi-Fi to Off.
5. If you rarely use a Bluetooth headset or car kit, you can turn off Bluetooth to save power. Go to Settings > General > Bluetooth and set Bluetooth to Off.
6. Use it regularly so that all of its features and components are constantly used.
Hope all of this helps :)

[It took me about an hour to think what to write about and then pen it down] I will try my best to provide information to all of you :) I will be happy to answer any questions.
