PC World Reviews Apple OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

PC World reviews the newest release of Apple’s Max OSX version 10.5 codenamed “Leopard”. In this review “Edward Mendelson” states one big remark. “First: despite minor problems, it’s by far the best operating system ever written for the vast majority of consumers, with dozens of new features that have real practical value—like truly automated backups, preview images in folders, and notes and to-do lists integrated into the mail program”. I have only played with Leopard in the last few days and seen it in action on a co-workers laptop, and I’m starting to thing more and more about purchasing a Macbook Pro!

Nokia N95 + RC plane = unlimited DIY aerial photography

Nokia N95 + RC plane = unlimited DIY aerial photography -

Filed under: ,


If you've found yourself tempted by other interesting DIY aerial photography rigs, but spent all your dough on the Nokia N95 instead, you may still be able to make a lifelong (or momentary) dream come true. A pioneering lad over at the N95 Blog has suggested that nearly unlimited high-resolution aerial photography can be yours if you're willing to strap your precious handset to an RC plane and get savvy with Pict'Earth software. The application allows users to create a theoretical Google Earth of their own if the existing imagery isn't up to snuff with their personal standards. Still, we'd have to mull this one over mighty hard before attaching such a valuable communicator to a potential death bed, but feel free to let us know how things go if you can muster the courage.

Which is the default, double check this variable as it might be set to something else.
