Was trying to achieve a black background for a long time. Saw a little success this past weekend. Used a black turban as the background, and bounced flash from the cieling.
After 5 years of working with InstallShield/Acresso, today is my last day there.
how do they get away with copyrights? i know they only show headlines from other sites, but is that ok?
You get to read automated, template’ized emails every now and then and get confused by the wordings, but I got one today which I think was the wrost ever in wording and explaining a process. Take a look:

I hope this information was helpful to you, if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.
Having used a iPhone for a week or so, I have been missing a lot of functionality, coming from a Windows Mobile device (WM6). I guess I have to face the reality that iPhone is still a multimedia (music & video) device first & then a phone or a productivity device.
The phone part as of now looks ok, with most of the basic features covered. Some basic functionality like transferring Contacts via OBEX using Bluetooth comes to haunt you sometimes. Rarely you will be missing the copy/paste functionality while adding contact information, or copying a contact information from a web-page in Safari and pasting it in the Contacts application.
Update: This is what you need from Apple:
Update: It looks like lots of people are having this problem? I just looked at some analyticals from Google, and it seems lots of people are firing this search
My iPod Nano used to work with Bose Over Ear headphones perfectly, but why did Apple change the headphone jack on the iPhone!?!
iPhone headphone jack doesnt take the Bose Over Ear headphone nicely, the jack is a bit longer than the normal, hence the earphones dont work.
Navizon unveiled the software only positioning system for mobile phones, which works on iPhone and integrates with Google Maps on iPhone.
The software works by triangulating the GSM cell tower signals to find your location. Also, the software uses something I havent heard of before, wifi-triangulation from existing known Wi-fi access points.
The app itself is very simple, It tries to triangulate your location, and once it finds your best possible location, sends out the lat & long co-ords to GMap and launches GMap, centered on your location.
Not sure how this app, would perform while driving, where there is a constant handover from cell to cell.
for me the first attempt yielded best positioning, but after that it kinda thew me on an Interstate (I-90).
Currently Google Maps are working well on iPhone. Much better than Youtube. Om confirms this here.
I have been using Google Maps from day one on iPhone, but there are some missing things, which you would expect on a devoce that is launched in era of 2007. Apple should have implemented better usage of Bluetooth, and possibly given a feature to hook up a GPS device via Bluetooth to drive Google Maps. It is kinda painful to scroll, and zoom using multi-touch while driving, to find exactly where you are at the moment.
Hoping that improvements in bluetooth implementation brings in this functionality soon in iPhone.
