iPhone OS 3.0

It's released, and I got it. I liked it. Here's my quick review on the items that I found important. From most important to least important.

Cut/Copy/Paste: Wow, at last! And it works like a wonder. Having it works on SMS is also awesome. Makes it life easier. Having it works on Notes & Mail is even more awesome than I thought.

Spotlight Search: Mac is not my primary system. Not at home, not at work. But such a search tool is very very efficient, now I understand... It is a definite must have.

Shake to Shuffle: It is good to have this on iPhone because I got used to it on my iPod Nano 4th gen. So this is important for me.

Delete single SMS thing: C'mon, everybody has some secret.

Messaging: Well I so rarely send MMS. I ever used it like 4 or 5 times total in my life, but people I know is using it and sending messages through it, so having it once again is nice. I'll be able to recieve MMSs yay. And overally the Messaging application is very cool.

Voice Memos: If I hadn't bought a paid one already, this would be the single thing that is the most important for me... It is essential. It is so important for me that it was the first application I bought. So having it already makes it the last improvement for me...

Other than these either I have not tested them or they are no important for me. But one must be comment about sharing the internet feature. It is also very essential, but iPhone itself answers all my mobile browsing needs. So I don't care about it that much with iPhone. Landscape keyboard for all other applications are definetely good but not for me I was quite ok with normal one. Safari crashes got fixed they say, it must be good but so far it behaves very well for me anyway. Youtube login, meeh not that important. Multiple iTunes account management is yes kind of good. I can use it if I ever need it, maybe on vacation or away from home and my personal computer. These are all good but only on paper for me anyway. Certain scenerios must be occur so that I can find them like WOW THAT'S SO COOL!

A friend of mine was in need of sending contacts on the air. And at last he got it. I heard another friend who is very happy with new Wi-Fi feature. Heard from noone about notes sync, lol.

So they say there are over 100 new features. But those are the key ones that I tried to cover.

Oh I was forgetting that now Assassin's Creed works. So this must be why Gameloft was silent. Still it is bad publicity and stuff...

Ok, that covers all for me...

P.S: 10 mb edge limit is ridiculous and Sega's Sonic game is still not very good responsive to jump/action button.

Patience as a Virtue

Which I don't have. I have no patience whatsoever. Non at all at least when it comes to the stuff that I am very very interested in like technological toys and stuff. For instance; if it is said it is on June 17, I expect it to have it when I wake up. No compromises. If I'll have it on the next day then don't say it is on June 17, say June 18. And I couldn't care less about the time regions. I don't live in the promising party's coutry. I live in my own home country. And my time and date is set by that. Not their own country. Make it the release dates to my country because I am your customer too, you fartlings!

Although I may understand the boxed goods like electronics, hard copy video games and etc... Not all but to a level, I know logistics and deliveries are bitch most of the time. But it is not acceptable as long as the product itself is a digital download, or something like it, like a tv show or alike. Because everyone cares about their own time actually.

My words are going -especially- to big bozos like Apple & Microsoft. I wonder when this issue will become an actual issue of customer relations and customer appreciation subject. Every big company tries their best efforts to keep their customers happy, but noone thought about ridiculous times, time periods of releases and like, I don't know, help desk working hours? In my humble opinion this should be addressed.

Daring Fireball

I found out a new awesome blog recently via FriendFeed. The guy speaks the truth, and I liked his attitude and stuff.

Have a nice day.

SoapUI 3.0 Beta 2

It has been released, with a lot of fixes. That's good but what is really new? Let's take a look;

~Added native installers for Mac OS X and Linux
~Fixed moving of TestCases with properties
~Added [mocking] Multithreaded onResponse/afterRequest MockService scripts
~Added [mocking] Ability to specify local host to bind to

There a lot of new big features and fixes other than these 4. However these are the ones that I am really interested in. I am anxious to see the final version.

Assassin's Creed, Gameloft, iPhone

Hello, I don't know how to address this stoopeedness? First, Gameloft has released Assassin's Creed portable version on iPhone. I don't want to fix on negativeness of the whole situation, but the game uses their "Hero of Sparta" Engine. And the gameplay experience is as bad as the NintendoDS version. There's not any improvement over that port. Remember the original game [X-Box 360 version etc...], it was a master piece, a state of art... Second, and more importantly, the game is crashing after the first demo for many of the user-base. It has been over a month and there is still no fix. There is no word or explanation or a fix date or an apology of anykind. If this is not very bad publicity for all accounts, I do not know what is.

'"Hosts" File Edit'er

Ok. I am making words up. But I am too drunk to think straight. I am sick of Windows' administrator rights and stuff. Everytime it asks me that permission thingie to edit that file, I get iritated, so I wrote this tiny little script. And sharing it with you, it's pretty simple write an IP address and then write the name for it. It will add it to hosts file. So you won't need editing it or any free dns or something like it. Just give your user `the right` from security tab to access to that stoopeed file and use my script. That's it. If you don't already know what I am talking about, you should ignore this post. Here's the tiny .VBS script.

Dim Stuff, FileSys, WriteStuff
Stuff = ip & " " & domain
Set FileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WriteStuff = FileSys.OpenTextFile("c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts", 8, True)
SET WriteStuff = NOTHING

Notice that there is no exception handling or something, I assumed you are smart enough to execute this properly. Thanks for watching.

Scripting is even funnier, when you are drunk. I should try Sed&Awk...

Google Profiles

Wow, I am on fire! I am everywhere.

Get yours. And enjoy!

It's quite useful, actually. It virtually supports and feeds everyother network around. But you know, somehow I have the feeling that it won't be that popular. And with this much competition, I am pretty sure this one will get lost in the crowd. I wish to be wrong.
