玩物喪志 that’s what I’ve been doing lately…


ok, what’ve I been doing lately?
Busy!!! besides taking care of the 2 precious,
I’ve been trying to configure something…
see, I’m very bored with my ever-running-out-of battery garmin-asus a10, (ya, I know, old phone, damn old phone, right? In the past, a phone bought in 2011 is not considered OLD, but then, in this century, it is!)
and I’m also bored with my very old ipod touch gen-2, yes, besides using it to listen to songs, nothing else I can do, damn @apple LO!!! no apps supported for any iOS below 4.3…

as I’m so bored, I’ll think of what else can I do, I mean besides taking care of my 2 precious (that’s not so bored, but then I gotta deviate my attention from them, once in a while, right?)

and therefore, one fine day, I ordered this,

Cpeel T166, from a local store (“chapalan” type of online store LA!), it’s by coming.hk, well, a china company, since you know, china’s so damn good at being 山寨, they really can come out with something… which makes this world, a little bit interesting… cos, they really ARE VERY DAMN CREATIVE, for your info…

and therefore, first thing I gotta do is to jailbreak my ipodtouch gen-2, I’ve attempted before, but I failed to find a tool, then, that day, I tried again, and I found greenpoins0n, bingo!

Then, i’ve a lot more hurdles to overcome, since iOS 4.2.1 is like… sooooooooooooooooooooooooo historic!!!

first problem, still unsolved,
I can’t get whatsapp to work, fine!! though I’m a legit whatsapp customer, in iOS, and android platform!

Second, I asked my friend who’s done JB before, where to find apps, and that opened up a whole new world ot me (PM me, if you want to know!)
third, I’ve to find all those older versions for those apps that I use, and am still using, like tunein radio, naver’s line, facebook, twitter, weibo, ibooks, yes, I use my little ipod to read books, find it handy, and because of that, I managed to read some 東野圭吾, 推理小說。

Seriously, @apple does have some big problem for me, see… I normally update my apps, and only because of that, I find out, I can’t get back the older apps, there’s no such thing as roll back… damn! So, I gotta go online and find,

and therefore, thanks to those online lovely internet users, or, people like me, who really has nothing better to do, and find this type of “challenges” to overcome,

first, I come across filecrop.com, ya, found some files,
after that, I realized, it’s easier to get it out from some chinese websites, again, you know what they’re good at, right?

Appifan.com
weiphone.com
and so on…

ok, all done, at least, I get these apps that I want to use, up and running on my device…

honestly, as of today, my ipod, with that cpeel, they call it 蘋果皮,
can function as a phone, calls, sms, etc,
but then, the gprs connection’s unreliable,
and that, till date,
I’m still trying to solve it!

And to my excitement, in a way, since I’m an android’s supporter,
I even can port xperia Z theme on my old ipod, and tap it, and slide it, and flip it, and roll it, just like how I use an android phone, cool, right?

I think I think I think, they’re going to pretend to be like and android, in the long run,
see!!! android copies ios, and now, ios has to copy android back, hahahahahahahaha!!!
isn’t that fun?

Well, i’m still trying to solve that GPRS connection thing with my cpeel,
if you happen to read this,
and if you happen to have an ipod touch gen2,
and if you happen to also have a cpeel t166,
and if you also happened to have encountered the same problem, and have solve it, or,
if you happen to still trying to solve it, like me,
or if you happen to want to help me with a solution,
please let me know,
very very much appreciated, thanks…

THAT’s how it/they look like…

evernote, I damn love~


that I can write my notes, my thoughts,
in bed…
while accompanying baby… when she’s there playing and I’m sitting here,
when I’m on the move, in the car…
cos I don’t have a data plan,
and I also do not like to blog on the go… ie. I’m the type who’ll rather type, read again, or edit again, make sure everything’s alright (well, not so serious actually…) and then, only publish it…
therefore, evernote is just THERE for me…
I’ve mentioned before…
I could jot down notes (even include some health related articles, or recipes, or parenting tips…) on my iPad,
or my droid,
or my ipod,
or my windows PC…
or my ubuntu notebook… (except this one, they do not have an apps for linux/ubuntu, the rest, there’s an installer, there’s apps…)
what other apps do I need now??

my Line


I’ve been asking a few of my friends to install “Line“, ya, it’s a funny apps name, whenever I type “Line”, I find it too simple to type…
well, if you’ve used Viber before, then you’ll know what I mean, basically it’s once of those text/voice chat apps that one can install on his/her smartphone, started from iOS, (though it’s more meant for iPhone, but then, I could install it on iPod, or iPad, unlike bloody whatspp, which you really have to have an iPhone to install it!)
and eventually made available in android phones…
yes, I’m having an android,
I’ve tried to move my Viber (from iPod) to android before, however, as what one of my friends mentioned, Viber “caused” his android OS “shaky”, and that he uninstalled it…
so, I tried Viber on my android, I think it’s 2.1 or older, unupgradeable…
and yes, it froze my screen, and my subsequent apps a couple of time, that the only thing I could do,
was a reboot!
after trying twice, (ie. install, uninstall, give it a chance, install and then uninstall, for good!)
I’ve decided to call it quit!
then~~ along, came “Line”.. ooh~~ what more to say, it’s by Japanese~~~~~ yatta~~~
I tried on iPod, it’s not made for big screen like iPad, though you can just install and use it, just like Viber…
it’s good, though I couldn’t tell the difference or any extra “perks” offered by Line as compared to Viber…
ok ok… if I were to say something,
it’s better and more pleasant background,
and it’s this “sticker” things, ie. emoticons, smileys, and bla bla bla…
and guess what? one of my friends love using it, as compared to Viber, simply because of this “addons”, ie. emoticons, japanese style, some silly icons, bla bla bla…
cos, when one is out of idea of what to type to somebody, see!! since it’s free, and you just have to use it, and when you’re so bored… you just wanna send something (cos, it’s free!), but you just don’t know what to send, what to write…
you just send some silly stickers to the other person…
and yes, that’s the crap I get… but seems like there’re people enjoying it! right??
that’s the “perks” of naver’s Line, then, if you ask me…
here, naver’s Line on top, vs. Viber…
can you really tell the difference?? now… I can’t… besides what I’ve mentioned…
however, on system wise, I opt for Line, cos, it’s compatible (ooh, how long I’ve not used this word) to my old android…. and there,
Viber, I’ve to say “bye” to you…
what more to say, one of my other friends, who uses Viber to text chat with me every day (oh, if my mom’s still around, I bet I’ll get her to do the same thing too!)
see, but she uses Viber on iPad, and I’m urging her to upgrade her iOS… ie. iOS 5.0, then,
she’ll have the built-in messaging things, which again, is great… (that I shall blog, next round!)
which is Apple’s own iOS’ iMessage…
if she’s on that…
then, yes, I’ll ditch Viber for good,
while Line, and Whatsapp stay with my android…
cos, I’d like to centralise most of my “communication” apps in my android… ^_^ (ooh! centralise, another word I’ve not been using for a looooooooong time!)

My News Reader on iOs


ya… this will be my first post here, and if you ask me what am I thinking of… for such a blog… ^_^,

there… I thought of MobileRSS,

hm… probably you’ll like other apps on iOS (mine’s iPad 2 and iPod 2… arrgh… damn old! waiting for iPod 5… ask me why can’t I just go get the iPhone 5?? nah!!! I still love my android, ie. Garmin Asus A10… which, of course, comes with superb Garmin map… especially after my Perth Trip… haha… I shall just put it on the altar, and worship it… ^_^ just kidding…!!!)

why MobileRSS??

ya, like I said, you probably have other better apps for news reading on iOS devices… be it the website itself, or maybe this famous Flipboard… (ok, I like it too.. but you know… both of them behave differently… just different!)

however, in my humble opinion, MobileRSS’s been a great apps as how Google Reader itself is, on web… *_* or in the cloud??

kakakakaka~~~~~

anyway, if you use other clients for news/rss/blog reading, then you may not know what I mean, but MobileRSS serves exactly as how I’ll use Google Reader on the web… for eg. “like”, “add star”, “share”…

and just like what I’ve told my brother…,

I read news on my iPad, ie. MobileRSS even much faster than using the Google Reader itself… (sorry, Google!)

as… I can quickly flip through, vs. I need to scroll down the page… ie. using the scroll button of my mouse… damn tiring man!

if you’ve loads and loads of junks to read like me,

and you like to click “like”, “share”, “add star”… then…

this maybe your good choice… if you own an iOS device…

kekekekeke…

chiow~
