Drawing With A Finger

28 02 2009

Ever since I got my iPod Touch, I’ve had Sketches, the drawing app with a corkboard. I want to take this post to showcase some of the drawings I’ve done in those few months. Let’s go!





Flight MCSM003 Has Been Delayed…

24 10 2008

No, I don’t mean an actual aeroplane, silly! I mean that episode 3 of Mr Cheese’s Stop Motion Show will not be ready tomorrow. Once again, I forgot to bring it with me. I could have emailed it, put it on a memory stick, even put it on my iPod, but no – I had to forget. Again. Oh well. It’ll be ready Sunday night, early Monday morning I suppose. On the plus side, today was an inset day, so that was fun! Bye bye for now!





Happy Birthday!

18 10 2008

Today, as you probably guessed, was my birthday. Well, I say this, but it was also Harry’s birthday as well. How’s that for bad planning? Anyway, what did I get other than Spore?

An iPod Touch (which I’m using to type this)
A 1TB external hard drive (which we had to send back as it didn’t work)
$100 (yes, it was American dollars!)
A case for my iPod
3 books
Another £40 to make £105
£20 iTunes voucher

So, it was a good 15th birthday! And to top it off, we went to the Thai Elephant 2 in Peacehaven for an all-you-can-eat dinner!

Check out one of the cards I got!

PS Episode 2 of Mr Cheese’s Stop Motion Show went live today. See you soon!

This is my personal blog, right? iPhone tutorials and what-not are just taking up valuable personal space. So all the iPhone stuff is moving. Where? Right over there. Go on, look! Over there! Just there! Can’t you see it? Oh, OK, I’ll give you a link. Here – http://iphoneitouch.wordpress.com – happy now? Now go! Run to the blog! Unless of course you don’t want to read about the iPhone. Then you are allowed to stay here.





Yippee For Apple!

9 09 2008

I’m very happy today, because Apple held their “Let’s Rock” event today. Amongst iTunes 8, which now features HD TV shows, the new iPod Nano, which comes in:

  • Silver
  • Black
  • Purple
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Red and
  • Oink (otherwise known as Pink)

and also features an iPhone-esque accelerometer which enables Cover Flow and Shake-to-Shuffle. But my favourite part? The new, thinner, better, iPod Touch! Seeing as I want one of my October birthday, this is a good time to release a new one. It includes a built-in speaker, a better UI (User Interface) and they’ve redesigned it to look like an iPhone. Yay! Although I haven’t read the price section yet…





We’re Better, Connected.

2 09 2008

Most of today was spent doing not a lot, and watching Octopussy (James Bond) on a poor-quality VHS, but some of it included getting all the computers in the house networked. This basically involved allowing access through the firewall for each computer, choosing a folder to share and finding it on another computer. Me and Harry also had a debate about why he would or wouldn’t need and iPod Shuffle, which is his latest phase: listening to my music in iTunes. Luckily, he’s not getting grubby fingerprints on my Mac – he’s sharing my library within iTunes on his PC. Anyway, the debate ended up with him deciding to ask for one for his birthday, which is exactly 45 days, 5 hours, 10 minutes and 30 seconds away. Unfortunately for me, this is also my birthday… I’ll try and upload a countdown to the sidebar on the blog if you’re interested. Turns out the only way to get a timer is using javascript, which WordPress doesn’t allow.
