Motorola USB Flash Drive Giveaway

We had to return 3 times with three different packaging types to get the things approved for shipping. And they charge as much as the drive itself.

All you gotta do is guess what’s the capacity.

Interesting late night Tuesday round up!

Unlock iPhoneThere’s a plot to release the iPhone unlocking software into the wild, wild web. A prize of $100,000 is in the offing. Several individuals and companies have actually solved the AT&T unlocking dilemma but threats of lawsuits prevent them to move forward.

Reports say that unlocking the iPhone invites DMCA complaints from AT&T and Apple. As usual, Apple will fiercely try to lock this down to protect their contract with AT&T. But what if they can’t?

It’s all about the money…

Messing around with the Theme

After several weeks mulling over the CSS reboot of this blog, and after considering several of the earlier comments and suggestions, I’ve finally decided to roll out a minor tweak to the theme.

Some of the more obvious changes are the background (I wanted to be a little artsy this time), the logo and some font sizes and colors. Hope the improvements are appreciated by the reading public.
