iPhone 3G

People seem to be hating on the iPhone lately. “They really did it this time with the maps”, “It looks the same”, “It’s too light”. When the iPhone first game out in the summer of 2007, it was the emphatic king of smartphones. To own a iPhone was the single coolest thing you could do. It had a flair and a spark Blackberrys didn’t possess. Then, on October 17th, 2009 the Motorola Droid was released and suddenly the iPhone monopoly was in jeopardy. Soon Samsung and HTC came out with Android running, “iPhone alternatives”, of their own. The Galaxy, the Evo, the Sensation. They were more powerful and fast than the poor iPhone, and their advocates claimed it was the end of the “iPhone era”. Having a conversation with one of these users sounded something like this: 

Android Mike: Wow man, I can’t believe you’re still using that outdated iPoop.

iPhone Tim: I like my iPhone. 

Android Mike: But my phone has a Qualcomm QSD8650 chipset which contains a Snapdragon Scorpion microprocessor which is 1GHz.

iPhone Tim: I don’t really care. 

Android Mike: You’re just ignorant. My Adreno 200 graphics chip has been clocked at 22 million triangles per second. 

iPhone Tim: I still don’t care. 

This “I don’t care” attitude was taken to be the way iPhone users justified a supposedly overpriced aesthetically motivated purchase, and this is partially correct. I say partially because there’s nothing wrong with buying a product based on aesthetics. 

I don’t play high tech games on my phone. I don’t use my phone in place of a actual camera. I don’t seek a 5.5 square inch screen on my phone. If I did want any of these things, I’d buy an Android phone. But I love how my phone looks. I love the simplicity. I love how easy it is to use. Different nations have different cultures. The same goes for phones. You get used to an operating system, and other systems seem foreign. Android users view their phones as a purely physical machine. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I also view my iPhone as a machine, but I also believe there is more to it. 


What lies behind the Whited00r?

So you got this 3 year old iPhone 3G you bought off of Craigslist and you dont know what to do with it because you can’t afford a fancy new iPhone 4S. Your friends and family are all multitasking and iMessaging and you feel left out and abandoned. We cheer up lad, the time has come for you to experience iOS 5 magic. A new piece of software called Whited00r allows old skool Apple devices use some of the features of iOS 5 by acting like a custom firmware (i.e Cyanogenmod for Android). You will however miss out on iCloud, Notification Center and the App Store. So ge your Indiana Jones on if you think your up to it.

louis: iPhone (/ˈaɪfoʊn/ EYE-fohn) is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. They run Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. The first generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007, and there have been multiple new hardware iterations since. The user interface is built around the device’s multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and can connect to cellular networks. An iPhone can shoot video (though this was not a standard feature until the iPhone 3GS), take photos, play music, send and receive email, browse the web, send and receive text messages, follow GPS navigation, record notes, perform mathematical calculations, and receive visual voicemail. Other functionality, such as video games, reference works, and social networking, can be enabled by downloading mobile apps. As of January 2017, Apple’s App Store contained more than 2.2 million applications available for the iPhone.

Doing a mockup for an 8.5″ 300BLK SBR Build. 

The Omega 9K is full-auto rated with supersonic & subsonic 300BLK, so it should be a great can for a super short 300BLK upper. Probably will roll with another T2 but with a Scalarworks mount for this upper, no BUIS, and just a DBAL up front, which should balance it out with the slightly heavy ARC stock on the other end. The rail will most likely be a KAC 8.5″ URX4 M-Lok rail. 

Decisions, decisions…..

Birthday - A Timeline EMP Journey ;)

So… John never knew when Sherlock’s birthday was? Do we believe that fact?

Let’s, for a moment, suppose that this is 2015… and they met in 2010.

That means for 2011, 2012 and 2014 John had no idea when Sherlock’s birthday was. However… if they did meet Irene in 2011 then at least for 2012, Irene would have texted ‘Happy Birthday’ to Sherlock???

And there was never anything from Mycroft that could have suggested Sherlock’s birthday. Like come on John, you’re gonna trust a text from Irene here?

But I’m gonna go onto another layer. I’m gonna delve into the timeline problem and… EMP. Under the cut we go!

Old poem I found on my Iphone 3GS

When a nice guy tries to date her
She leaves quick,
No see u later.
She pops a Molly,
Swallows chasers.
Sleeps with a bunch of men,
But now they’re haters
She claims each one’s a loser,
But how you begging and a chooser?
She turns to Alcohol to soothe her,
Guess we were right about the rumors.
How you mommy of the year?
Riding around on Molly and beer?
I thought your record was so clear?
We must be missing something here?
