How to Track and Potentially Recover Your Stolen Laptop with Prey



Three points.

1. Windows, Mac, Linux
2. Free. (Up to 3 devices)
3. Easy to install. Web base monitoring.

With the potential of recovering your stolen PC, laptop, Android, it is worth installing. Too bad none for the iPhone (unless Apple will release MobileMe for free).

I've already setup prey for my eee netbook on Ubuntu. Works just fine.

Excellent talk. Especially in how he relates the Sputnik to GPS.

The best stand mobile stand for iPhone



The Gorillapod Mobile 3G
. (iPhone 4 not out yet)

1. A case for my iPhone
2. A flexible tripod (stand to watch movie)
3. Free iPhone app (Gorillacam) for time-lapse, self-timer multiple shots ...)
4. In addition, there is an additional attachment with a standard screw for use of the tripod with other digital cameras. (Joby sells a bigger stand for the heavier SLR).

All these for just 35 SGD (26.20 USD). To me, this is one of the best add-on for the iPhone.

A Keychain iPhone Emergency Solar Charger



A new toy I got yesterday. The size of a Zippo lighter.

Con:
Only charges the iPhone (non-USB)

Pro:
Because it only works on iPhone, there are no cables. Iphone connectors are all build in. In addition, you can charge the battery with the iPhone charging cable if there is no sun.

Conclusion:

On a full charge (10 hours of sunlight or 2 hours of directly charging), I've managed to pumped in 20-25% of battery life to my iPhone. Not too bad considering this is suppose to be an emergency charger, also the diminutive size of this device.
And it's not costly at SGD 19.00

iOS 4.1 on my iPhone 3GS

iOS 4.1

Just updated my 3GS.

1. Game center that I don't need.
2. No HDR (only for iPhone 4). Darn.

The only benefit is that the UI seems more responsive. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop
