iPad 2 Case

There is nothing worse than spending all your hard earned cash on a nice iPad 2, only to have it scratched, dented or even worse, smashed!

A small investment in an iPad 2 case will certainly be worth your while if want to protect your device.  The best ipad 2 case comes with the ability to protect your device from little bumps and bangs (but may not stop the glass from getting smashed when dropped).  An iPad cover will certainly help stop superficial marks from appearing and it will also keep your new investment safe.

They come in all shapes and sizes and are made from a variety of materials.  Leather, plastic, metal, neoprene and rubber are some of the most common ones you will find.  Also look for great makes like Belkin, which always make good quality iPad accessories.  It is also a great idea to buy these covers from eBay - where you will certainly get the most from your money.

Amazing Way To Buy A Cheap iPod

First, a little history on how I found out how to get a cheap iPod.  My 2 lucky kids got brand new iPod touches for Christmas last year.  The thing is, that they are now both dead with cracked glass, plus covered in kiddie tears too.

I started looking into how I could get them repaired and came across lots of websites where you can get the glass repaired for around £85 - a fairly hefty portion of the cost of the original iPod Touch.

I knew that the Apple Stores do hold stock of replacement items (as I found out when I tried to get a new iPhone, because the volume button had fallen off and they wanted to charge be £190 for a new one).  After a little bit of reading up, I found that the 8gb iPod Touch can be replaced by Apple for £82.44!

At the same time, I was also looking on eBay to see how much cracked glass iPod's sell for, 2nd hand.  They seem to sell for around £40, the higher capacity ones sell for more - but no that much more....

So, if you put the 2 together, Apple Store and eBay, you get the choice of buying a broken screen iPod from eBay and then taking it to the Apple Store to have the glass replaced for around £85... great!  Especially if you can get yourself a 32gb model from eBay - you will be laughing!

Its Downgrade Week

macbook downgrade screenshot

I recently posted about my upgrade week encompassing installing OS X Leopard on my MacBook and also the new update for the Xbox 360 that allowed DiVx content to play.After spending a few weeks with OS X Leopard, I have decided to uninstall and move back to using Tiger, the previous version instead for the following reasons:

  • Too slow - I just found that with my measly 512mb of RAM, my MacBook was just not as responsive and as quick as it used to be. Even with the Dashboard disabled and the 3D dock busted back to 2D it was still sluggish.
  • Wifi Issues - since the update to Leopard, my wireless connection seemed to be searching, connecting, scanning, searching... all the time. There are grumbles about this issue on the web but all of the fixes I attempted never worked. Back to Tiger - all is fine again.
  • Unused New Features - the features like Quick Look, Stacks and Cover Flow were all very nice, but not essential to my use of the MacBook. I was able to quickly search through all of my JPG files to try and find one particular image using Cover Flow, but I could have achieved the same result by using the normal search results. The new version of Safari is nice and I will miss that most of all. Both Spaces and Time Machine were not anywhere on my radar.

At the moment I am running a very basic OS X installation with nothing apart from the following applications installed:

  • Transmission - The best OS X BitTorrent client - link
  • Perian - a collection of codecs for Quicktime - link
  • Burn - for converting videos and creating DVDs - link
  • Quicksilver - an application launcher - link

Whilst OS X Leopard is a good and solid update for the Apple systems, it's not for me at the moment.

iWantOne

Much like receiving rough prison-style anal sex, the thought of getting an iPhone was not very high on my agenda.

Although I am an Apple fan I had not even seeked out the device to play with whilst Mr Spotty Teenager sales assistant at Carphone Whorehouse hovered round me like a priest round his "young flock" - waiting for the weakest to fall, and then pouncing for the kill.

The iPhone is certainly one of those things that is best stayed away from, lest you fall under it's magical spell and succumb to a life of £35 a month contracts and endless "i-monikered" peripheral devices.

But I have seen one.  I have touched one.  And I want one!  My colleague traded his Girlfriend for one and seems much happier as a result.  It really does change lives!

It's much better than I even thought.  Quicky, zoomy, fadey and most of all, Appley.

As Shakespeare once said... "give me a fucking iPhone for Christmas now... forsooth!"
