Writers Write “B-Logs,” Get Money

This is an interesting read of other people in the business that write all about technology and get paid for it. I guess we’re all trying to get to a point in our life where we can do something we enjoy and also be financially stable at the same time. This is a good way to start. Writers Write “B-Logs,” Get Money – USA Today, that bastion of hard news, is covering a new fad popular with the kids called “B-logging.” They talk about two “b-loggers,” Om Malley and Mike Orvington, who used to work at real jobs and now eat ice cream and write about computers. Now I don’t know who these people are or what they think they’re doing, but I think it’s bad to show people that you can make “real money” — how much, Om Malley? $5? HA! — doing this. There are jobs that Americans should be doing — car repair, HVAC installation, dance instruction — that are going empty while these two jokers sit around all day pretending to work. For shame. “B-logging,” like stamp collecting and religious observance, should be considered a hobby and nothing more. Let’s not encourage these bozos.

Thieves take off with $50,000 worth of cellphones

Thieves take off with $50,000 worth of cellphones -

Filed under:

The anecdotal evidence for a spike in electronics robberies is piling up, with the latest high profile robbery netting the thieves $50,000 worth of cellphones from a T-Mobile store. Three armed men walked into the store in Fort Bend County in Texas on Thursday, and demanded the "good phones" from the store's safe and the tapes from the CCTV. Staff were tied up, and the thieves deposited the phones into black plastic bags and walked out. Unfortunately for the robbers, T-Mobile keeps a good track of its inventory, and can identify any of the phones if they turn up on the network (meaning that the $50,000 sticker value is much lower on the black market). Crime doesn't pay, especially when your stolen goods can be tracked.

JVC designs tiny 4k D-ILA chip

JVC designs tiny 4k D-ILA chip -

Filed under: ,

JVC 1.27-inch 4K2K D-ILA chipJVC announced at InfoComm 2007 a 1.27-inch 4K2K D-ILA chip for use in projectors that offer up more than four times high-definition resolution. Intended initially for medical, modeling, and simulation use, the chip can produce a ten-megapixel 4096x2400 pixel image with a 20,000:1 contrast ratio. While DLP-based 4K projectors are currently in use in some digital cinemas, the JVC chip will be used in D-ILA, a variant of LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon), and has a higher pixel density. Much like professional racing technologies trickle down to the average sedan on the street, the research that goes into 4K projectors can also make their way to HDTVs in the home, bringing smaller, higher-definition sets to a living room near you. We say bring on the quad-split-screen HD!

Video of iPhone Sim Free Unbricking and Unlocking (Verdict: It Works)

A video of the jail breaking and installation of 3rd party applications, but nothing about the activation and if you can use non AT&T SIM's. Still a pretty neat video.
Video of iPhone Sim Free Unbricking and Unlocking (Verdict: It Works) - We have tested iPhone Sim Free claims and they work. It still not a process for the faint of heart, as it requires using command line-voodoo for the jailbreak and activation, but it works perfectly. Our iPhone is now completely unlocked and open for apps now under Apple's latest firmware.
