A decade of mobile phone experience

About 10 years ago, I got my first mobile phone from vodaphone, motorola startac, a month later I traded it for nokia 3210 with a digi line (0162962241). From there I used 8250, 8310 and 6230 with singtel (97823646),n73, n80 and finally n95 8gb with O2. Ever since I bought iPhone, I don't think i will consider a nokia phone in the coming decade.

The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition

I can't remember where to begin, probably back in 1990 when I first got my PC, a 386/486 with a turbo button on it. Monkey Island was my first ever adventure game played. This summer Lucasarts will release special edition for it, I'm glad they didn't release this as a 3D game. This release will be just in time to patch the lost of my childhood music pop icon, MJ.

Apparently there are more progress than just a Special Edition. The guy at Telltale will release Tales of Monkey Island, 3D episodic games. I can't wait to play it soon.

I ruined my Mac OS

I'd spent an hour yesterday grabbing a copy of VMWare image that contains Mac OS 10.5.5, then I installed the iPhone SDK for 6 hours! Eventually I'd the software upgrade and installed the 700+MB Mac OS 10.5.7 Combine Update and found that it killed the virtual machine. Total time lost was half a day!

Luckily I got a backup copy of the initial image. That's mean I will have to spent another 6 hours to install the SDK.
Update: The Mac OS image mentioned above is done by Xelabo, however I just came across an image that has 10.5.7 update in it. There is a forum discussing about increase performance and upgrade here.

Hopefully the case will arrive before weekend.

SGP shield for iPhone 3G & S

I got my iPhone 3GS today, finally I'd decided to move away from HTC Hero after 2 weeks of consideration. But I'll get an Android phone early next year when it has NVidia Tegra chip in the smartphone.

I'd done some research on which case best fit my iPhone, and I bought SGP Shield at eBay from a Korean seller. At first I was looking for an anti fingerprint LCD film, but ended up buying this invinsible shield. SGP shield only comes with a Steinheil Crystal film. Thanks to the generous seller I got anti fingerprint film FOC.


Hi, may I know is it possible to swap and top up for an anti fingerprint sgp screen protector before you ship? I understand the lcd screen protector included in sgp shield is not anti-fingerprint. Thanks.

Zagg's invisibleshield is another popular choice, but I didn't get it as several users complains about the stickiness of it. I hope SGP will not have this problem.

Earn points with purchase in

Ebay has announced a new concept, +Plus; you gain point for each purchase. If you purchase an iPhone for £300, you get 300 points which convert to £3 at the end of September. I like the idea.
