iPhone 4 Vapor Case

19 Nov 2010  4 Comments

If you are following me on twitter, you would already know that I got my long awaited iphone 4 Vapor case a few days ago.

I first placed my order with Element Case back in August. But the case was so backordered that I had to wait 3 months for my case to arrive. It turned out to be a good thing because they had a few more colors to choose from by then.

The case is aluminum that has to be screwed into place, which means you can’t take the case off anytime you want, you have to have the hex key with you unfortunately.

The case looks really cool. Both the screen and the back are a little embedded with the case on. So when the phone is on a flat surface it protects the screen and back from being scratched.

I also got the “Carbon Fiber” back which turned out to be nothing more than a sticker.

Overall the case looks and feels good. The build quality is excellent. It make the phone a little bit more bulky.

Some people reported in a decrease of signal reception when using the case. I can’t confirm that because I always had crappy reception on my iPhone and I don’t use it to make any calls.

I had a problem using my BlueLounge charging station with the case on, it seems that the Apple’s proprietary connection is a different size on the station. Also not all 3.5mm headphones will work, the standard headphones work with no problem though.

The Minister of Finance Wants an iPad

28 Oct 2010  5 Comments

It seems that the Minister of Finance, Mr. Mustafa Al-Shamaly would prefer to carry an iPad around with him instead of a laptop. And from the paperwork above it looks like he is going to be issued one by the ministry, which means that he wants it for work related stuff and not personal use.

Don’t let me catch you getting your YouTube fix on that thing mr minister.

iPhone 4 Mophie Case

3 Oct 2010  7 Comments

I preordered the Mophie case for the iPhone 4 a few of weeks ago and it got delivered last week. Its no secret that the iPhone 4′s battery is horrible and there is no way it will last a day on a single charge (unless you switch off everything). But with this case I get a day of usage without looking for a wall socket everywhere I go.

The case almost doubles the capacity of the the phones battery giving me a usable phone instead of a paper weight starting from 4pm.

The new case design is a lot better than the old (3G/3GS) one. its looks a lot sleeker and less bulky. As you can see from the pics, it gives it extra length at the bottom and your phone will be slightly thicker.

The Mophie Case is $80 excluding tax and shipping.

Fifa 11 iPhone: Best Football Game On The iPhone

3 Oct 2010  3 Comments

I am not a huge iPhone gaming fan, I download games occasionally but I hardly ever play them. I really hate the onscreen control and really miss the physical buttons. But ever since I downloaded EA’s Fifa 11 for the iPhone a few days ago I changed my mind. It’s the only game I play now. It’s very well done with minimal controls. Of course your fingers block half the screen during gameplay and nothing still beats physical buttons but for the iPhone this is great. It also has commentary.

Fifa 11 for the iphone is $4.99 and its worth it in my opinion if you are a football fan.

MacUpdate Fall Bundle

I posted perviously about MacUpdate promotions and bundles. I just noticed that the released their fall bundle. There are 3 apps that I liked and made me purchase the bundle Toast 10 Titanium, My Living Desktop and Live Interior 3D the extra apps are not bad but I think I would hardly use them. Toast 10 by itself makes the bundle worth it.


iPhone 4 Jailbreak is Here

2 Aug 2010  4 Comments

iPhone iOS 4 jailbreak for iPhone 3G,3GS and 4 has been released for your jailbreaking pleasure,. whats really cool about this jailbreak is that the hack is web based via exploiting the Safari browser and no extra downloading of software or even connecting your phone to a PC/Mac is required (although backing up is highly recommended). All you need to do is visit a website and everything is automatically is done for you. Jailbreaking my 3G went without a hitch and a sign of success is the appearance of a Cydia icon.

iPhone 3G + iOS4 = A Brick

29 Jul 2010  3 Comments

Ever since I upgraded my iPhone 3G to iOS4 it turned the phone into an unusable piece of hardware. I wasn’t using my iPhone that much ever since I got the Nexus One but now I cant even use it as an MP3 player. The phone is laggy, unresponsive and crashes frequently. I just cant wait for my iPhone 4 to arrive.

The video shows the iPhone 3G with the iOS4 running. The problem is I have it worse than what they are showing on the video.

iPhone 4 Released: Quick Hands-On

24 Jun 2010  4 Comments

Just went to the Apple store to play around with the new iPhone 4. It feels good in the hand, very responsive with the new A4 processor and 512MB RAM. The camera is on par with the Nexus One camera that I think is one of the best 5MP cameras around.

The line here in Albuquerque New Mexico was pretty long. There are two lines, one for purchases and one is for reservation. both were long.

As I talked to one of the sales representatives at Apple, He said there might not be enough iPhones for everybody and its likely that the will get Sold out the first day. But good news is that they have the iPad in stock
