I get to write about after a month's absence from the last article written on this site ... and not many new personal!

Point out that the absence was not caused by August holidays (unfortunately totally absent this year) because (and here is made ​​the main news staff) I changed finally able to land jobs in banking (Banca Popolare di Novara).

But during this absence There are many new features have also been in the computing world, since the launch of Snow Leopard which I am fully satisfied: few new frills and a lot more stability and speed! The new feline proves to be much more mature than Leopard during debut (and unfortunately also in later versions). The diatribe of 32bit vs 64bit, the advent of QuicktimeX, the disappearance of Rosetta and more in a feline roaring really!

Also new in WordPress which is now at version 2.8.4 with changes "under the hood", Microsoft Office for Mac Service Pack 2 (12.2.1)

And now he expects the imminent release of the iPhone firmware 3.1 (with great hope that the management of the battery is more efficient) and its battle between Apple and DevTeam with Jailbreak, Ultrasn0w and PwnageTool!

We hope for many other beautiful new personal and not for the last quarter of the year!

WordPress is still growing: 2.8.1

Another update of the well known and widely used platform for blogging that brings the version number of WordPress 2.8.1 .

Usually updated with a single click that an upgrade is complete and painless in about ten seconds. Great job as always!

This time updates are minor (those defined as "under the hood"). You can see the complete list from the official page of the 2.8.1 changelog .

Good update to all and always remember to make a nice healthy database backup before attempting this type of transaction! Forewarned ...

iPhone 3GS and 3.0: how much hysteria!

June 18, 2009 2 comments

For several days now, it was announced during the WWDC '09 the new iPhone 3GS and the long-awaited software for OSX 3.0 for the same jewel of Apple.

In the conference there was talk of the 3.0 official release scheduled for June 17, and it did. But the past two days I have seen, read and heard of all the various forums, web-sites and blogs dedicated.

Hysterical, crazy and literally unable to read, read up and think. I'm sorry to admit it, but once the Apple community was far better. He could read, he knew to look for, he knew getting by and especially was not hysterical.

Many, even today, they put a lot of stupid questions about the impossibility of using the bluetooth to send / receive files between iPhone and other telephone devices.
I just want to remind you gentlemen that Apple has NEVER EVER talked about you open the bluetooth for this functionality with the 3.0. But reading is too expensive and too little to complain.

Many, even today, complain to Apple for the exorbitant prices of the new iPhone 3GS without realizing the price difference between our telephone companies and foreign ones. The fault, now is not Apple, but Tim and Vodafone who never miss a chance to prove participation in a duopoly, with a sign, without any form of competition.

Apple has the high prices, as always. Apple has a good quality (which unfortunately in the last few years I think has declined). There you will NEVER EVER expect cheap products from Apple. It is a policy which, rightly I think, Apple does not intend, and could not afford to pursue.

Still ... many are now in total hysteria for the upcoming release of QuickPwn and Ultrasn0w by the DevTeam. The funny thing is that some of these "many" succeeded in "briccare" (lock the phone part) their iPhone just to try the 3.0 and now put pressure on the DevTeam ... again: READ and not always complain!

Mine is just an outlet, beautiful and good. I feel lost among the flood of utonti who have arrived in recent years and who consider themselves part of a community just for the fact that he had spent 700 euro for an iPhone that use or do not know why you bought the latest MacBook Pro just to get install (more clearly) Windows Vista on a computer and play cool aesthetically.

They managed, to blow up the site iSpazio and block other sites and blogs dedicated. Hysterical looking and eager for information that then do not read ... but only ready to leave a comment (often banal and idiotic) just to say I am before I arrived (where they do not know I miss them).

FreePOPs 0.2.8!

November 12, 2008 16 comments

And after so much development (development), the team FreePOPs gave birth to the new version, currently arrived at 0.2.8 of the useful program that lets you download your mail to your email client (Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook) email also services that do not allow you to use your POP3 server unless you use their internet.

Examples ecclatanti are Libero, Hotmail, Alice, Inwind, Virgilio and many other email services ... I think of dubious quality (especially junk mail that is not filtered properly), especially when compared with services like gMail or AOL .

From here you can visit the official website of the project FreeePOPs .

From here , however, you can access the complete guide to the configuration of the post in the Mac environment with FreePOPs (and the use of FMU ).

First "hack" on iPhone (firmware 2.0)

20 July 2008 No Comment

Less than 24 hours that are passed from version 1.1.4 to version 2.0 of my iPhone 2G and I already had the first "troubles" that somehow, more or less simple, I was able to successfully resolve.

Problem 1: SSH, as by now in the iPhone?
I would say nonsense ...
The good Cydia Installer behaves much like Installer Nullriver (better), so just a few "palpated" written right on the iPhone and voila: OpenSSH installed!

Problem 2: When you first start Mail (MobileMail) crashes and fails to open.
We are the usual with some permission problem.
With OpenSSH, you enter inside the iPhone from terminal

ssh root@ip_iphone
(Default password: alpine)

and resets the correct permissions to the library

chown -R mobile:mobile /private/var/mobile/Library/Mail/

Problem 3: How do I disable the EDGE so I do not burn up all the remaining credit in a few minutes?

By following this simple guide !
