Hey if you want a truly unique case that stands out all you need is a template, clear case, scissors, pencil, and a hole punch.
As I wrote up in the iProxy: “No Tethering But Still Better Than Getting Ripped Off” post I offered to build the application if there was enough interest.
I now think there is enough interest to build it. This is a free service, that I will provide no support for. Experiment23 takes no responsibility for any problems, errors or charges you (the user) may incur as this is a freeware third party product.
If you are interested please email your iPhones unique ID to email@example.com and I will produce a build.
Remember NetShare? Well, AT&T has a beef with tethering and Apple won’t allow tethering Apps in the App Store, so Torsten Curdt decided to open source a tethering application – so anyone with a developer certificate can build it and distribute it to 100 of their closest friends.
The iPhone – the always online device. What would be more natural than using it on the train as internet connection for your laptop!? Unfortunately that’s not really an option if you
don’t want to jailbreak your phone
aren’t using one of the “official” carriers
don’t want to pay extra
want to use iPhone OS 3.1 and up
The only viable solution: a proxy!
That’s exactly what the “Netshare” application was. But it has already been banned from the App Store for a long time. So I thought – I just write my own. A few hours later I was able to reach the internet through my iPhone via the “iProxy” app.
iProxy is not as convenient as the real tethering. The internet connection is a few clicks more away. But if you’ve got a developer certificate (or have a friend that has one) it certainly is cheaper than handing out the money to your favorite telco. Especially if you only need this connection only every now and then.
Now while I cannot make this app available to all the iPhone user out there through Apple, I do make it available as Open Source as of today. iProxy is released under the Apache license and freely available on github. [via]
Well, if you have a developer certificate (or know someone who does) you can download the source code and build it. Or maybe (if you want) I can build it for the first 100 people that comment. Thoughts?
Completely trippy version of Tetris where pushing the rotate button ROTATES THE WHOLE WORLD. Really awesome!
At CES not only did Palm announce that the Pre and Pixi would be available on Verizon, they also introduced a mobile hotspot application that lets you share your data via WiFi to five devices. Problem Sprint gave that application the cold shoulder.
Enter My Tether. Its the PREMIERE tethering application for your Pre that lets you share your 3G connection.
My Tether for Palm Pre
Features (version 2.0.4)
* Allows sharing your Sprint EVDO from your Pre to your computer or iPod Touch.
* WiFi network name & WEP key customization options
* Makes Palm Pre into a MiFi-like hotspot at your convenience to share your 3G connection.
* Converts Palm Pre into a Wireless Network adapter by letting you share the WiFi connection on the Pre instead of EVDO when tethering over Bluetooth or USB.
* Option to disable sleep mode on Palm Pre
* Ability to turn off the LCD only, doesn’t put the device into sleep.
* Convenience features such as restoring the old WiFi connection when tethering is disabled, prompts to take care of pre-requesties to tethering, remembering settings and last tether options, restoring modifications to settings back to original value upon exit, and many more to list.
What makes the program cool is that it doesn’t require any hacking for the latest version since it includeds both a Mac and PC installer, but for the more daring individuals a free version is available is you “rooted” your device (think the Palm equivalent of Jailbreaking).
TOTALLY worth it if you are a Pre owner!
Who doesn’t know of “Where’s Waldo”? (Did you know its only called Where’s Waldo in North America… Elsewhere its called “Where’s Wally” – NATCH!)
Where’s Wally is a series of children’s books created by British illustrator Martin Handford. The books consist of a series of detailed double-page spread illustrations depicting dozens or more people doing a variety of amusing things at a given location. Readers are challenged to find a character named Wally hidden in the group. Wally’s distinctive red-and-white striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses make him slightly easier to recognize, but many illustrations contain “red herrings” involving deceptive use of red-and-white striped objects. Later entries in the long-running book series added additional targets for readers to find in each illustration.
Well apparently if you look close enough at the pictures to find Waldo you will find the peeps he hangs with are perhaps a little unhinged! Lets see there are topless ladies getting seemingly stabbed, Aztec human sacrifice, trannies, Lions using urinals, torture, orgies, pimping, explosions and sweet sweet furry love!
Not bad for a children’s cartoon! [via]
I’m always looking for a good (yet retro) screensaver. The problem is that Snow Leopard broke many of my cool open source screen savers since everything needs to be complied in 64bit mode. Following a tip over at MacOSXHints I downloaded the famous XScreenSaver source code and complied every screensaver for 64bit Snow Leopard computability.
If you don’t know what XScreenSaver is I suggest you check out their gallery of screenshots, I have a feeling you will find a few that you like.
For background XScreenSaver is the standard screen saver collection shipped on most Linux and Unix systems running the X11 Window System.
All you need to do is download the screen savers here and just double click to install. I suggest you check out XAnalogTV (its my fave!)
Also, after the jump is a description of all the modules included.
