Making a buck out of people’s paranoia/rational fear of cyber warfare and espionage … and these (apparently) terribly insecure devices many of us carry with us everywhere.

Early in the second part of PBS’s (highly recommended) ‘United States of Secrets‘ documentaries, The Guardian‘s reporter Ewan Macaskill recalled Edward Snowden’s reaction in his Hong Kong hotel to a simple question: Do you mind if I record our interview on my iPhone?: Ewan Macaskill — excerpt from PBS ‘United States of Secrets’ part 2 MP3 […]
Courtesy of The Guardian via John Gruber (again!) Update: Here’s a list of the apps in the video and extras, plus, in comments, some Android alternatives.
Watch this short video ad for Bentley Motors, and watch the ‘making of’ feature at the end (starts 3’15”). Wow. Yeah, sure they use a bunch of accessories, but look at the quality of the images. – P via John Gruber @daringfireball
These are nice improvements, in my view… I did the upgrade immediately.
Apparently for this LeAnn Rimes music video, “All Footage and Stop Motion Filmed Exclusively on the iPhone” … wow. From Jim Dalrymple LeAnn Rimes new video shot entirely on iPhone – The Loop via TUAW.com – P * www.wallaceandgromit.com
This morning at the Golf Club, I took this panorama shot on my phone. Whether it was that action that prompted it, the guy in the blue shirt decided to finish warming up on the practice tee and walked to his bag. Look at the result … Generally, the panorama ‘effect’ is pretty good. But […]
Every now and then one has to ignore the doomsayers. Earlier today I downloaded and installed Apple’s new mobile operating system iOS7 on my iPhone (5) and iPad (2). No issues. Of course, now I’m reading about a worldwide internet traffic spike and terrible delays and Apple’s servers being ‘slammed’ and yada yada … There […]
I mentioned the misfortune which this noble iPhone 3G suffered. Well, it’s still going. – P Pic: At TEDx Auckland today.
I bought this trusty white 16GB iPhone 3G the day they were launched in New Zealand in July 2008. It survived a few close calls while in my care, but I passed it, virtually unscathed, to my darling wife … who used it for a couple of years until she inherited my iPhone 4 last […]
I drifted into a discussion last night about smartphone attention. A cited statistic ‘people look at their phone 150 times a day’ struck me as way over the top. But others disagreed. One (obviously a pitiful, addicted soul) even sent me a link in support: An Attempt to Validate the 150x Per Day Number Based […]
Nice tone. – P
I own several watches. The one I use the most has a self-charging mechanism (no batteries, ever) driving a dead accurate quartz movement in a titanium and gold case with matching t&g strap. It’s very light and unobtrusive, except sometimes at night. The watch face glows in the dark — not the hands and numbers […]
I rang Vodafone yesterday and agreed to the extra $10 a month to enable 4G LTE on my iPhone 5. I could see from their coverage map that my home in Howick isn’t “in the zone”, and my Epsom office is on the margin (as it turns out, no dice there either). So I’ve yet […]
A friend, Mike, took this photo of the lighthouse on Tiritiri Matangi using his phone-camera’s panorama effect in vertical mode. Oops, he wasn’t quite straight in his ‘pan’…
