As sceptical as I am about the Olympics, I thought the opening ceremony was absolutely brilliant.
The iPhone is not and never was a phone. It is a pocket-sized computer that obviates the phone. The iPhone is to cell phones what the Mac was to typewriters.
Starting with the opening gag with Siri doing stand-up comedy and continuing through to Apple’s new maps and Siri’s new features, there was an unmistakeable “Fuck you, Google” undertone to the whole keynote. Apple is forcing Google out of iOS.
I love to research stuff. Any time I have a conversation with someone and I’m not 100% on the details, I’ll go look it up on the Internet. So now my obsession with research is driving me crazy 🙂
I’m really enjoying this TV show on Netflix that is a few years old (that’s if it’s not still running). Incredibly obscure, it’s not British or American. But I’m enjoying it so much that I want to research it and find out more about it, except that might mean spoilers. So I vow to watch all 100-odd episodes before I look it up.
And that’s killing me! 🙂
Now that iOS 5 lets you change the text tones (and other sounds) on your iPhone, I created some great ones for Zelda fans.
All the sounds come from the excellent site Legend of Zelda Sound Effects, but the download link below has them formatted as an iPhone ringtone you can just drag into iTunes.
Noises include: The famous “Puzzle complete” noise, Navi “Hey!” and “Listen!”, Various sounds for obtaining items, the Mail Man from Twilight Princess, and more!
