Bitni pogovori so slovenski podcast iz ust Nejca Žorge DulminaAlana Pepelka in Marka Bizilja. V zadnji oddaji so me povabili, da se jim pridružim tudi sam. Debatirali smo o Google Maps, CES in fantazirali o prihajajočih Applovih napravah.

Vse, ki vas zanima, kaj smo imeli za povedati, vabim, da si Bitne pogovore dodate v vaš omiljeni odjemalec podcastov.

AirPlayer

Apple je v  iOS 4.2 vpeljal tehnologijo AirPlay. Namenjena je pretakanju videa iz  iPhona, iPoda Touch ali iPada na domači televizor. Za takšno početje je v osnovi potreben Apple TV, ki ga priključimo na televizor.  Po zaslugi Erice Sadun temu ni več tako! Spisala je Mac program AirPlayer, ki omogoča pošiljanje videa naravnost na Mac računalnik in s tem tudi na televizor, projektor in kamorkoli drugam še lahko priklopimo Maca.

In najlepše pri vsem tem? Ni potreben jailbreakan iPhone, ker program teče na računalniku. Juhej!

Bolj Pop Rock kot Rock’n Roll

Septembrski iPod dogodek je za nami in Steve Jobs je še živ. Dobili smo sfriziran iPod Touch brez kamere, posodobljen iPod Nano z video kamero in iPod Classic še kar ni umrl. Tudi katastrofalnemu shufflu so prizanesli in ga odeli v nove barve. Načeloma smo vsi razočarani, da kamere niso privoščili tudi iPodu Touch. No, smo pa končno dočakali v celoti prenovljen iTunes, ki ga tokrat krasi številka 9 in je velik napredek.

Najbolj razveseljujajoče za Slovence pak je, da iPhone OS 3.1 sedaj tudi uradno prepozna slovenske telefonske številke v formatu +386 XX  XXX XXX. Mar to kaže na skorajšnjo uradno prodajo iPhona v Sloveniji? Ima kdo kaj več informacij?

Prav tako firmware 3.1 popravi nadležno piskanje iPhona 3GS po zaklepu ali po pošiljanju sporočila. Priporočam, vendar pozor, 3GS uporabniki nujno shranite ECID ter iBEC in iBSS datoteke, če želite ohraniti možnost jailbreaka v prihodnosti.

Oglejte si video posnetek predstavitve!

(Za številkofile, iPod event je bil 9.9.09, v sredo, ki ima v angleščini 9 črk, in na 252 dan v letu, kar spet da številko 9…. Zanimivo kaj? Niti ne. 🙂 )

Ko mi stvari niso usojene…

Hej, in kaj si s posodobitvijo firmwara pridobil?
Ce te zanima moja zgodba, si preberi spodnjih nekaj vrstic:
Jaz sem vceraj dobil od Mimovrste My Passport Studio 320gb s podporo FW800. Vzel iz ohisja disk in ga vstavil v moj MBP, ker sem mel v MBP disk z 7200 rpm, ki je bil sicer super fajn hiter, ampak je zaradi tega vibriral cel racunalnik do te mere, da ko si ga dal na mizo, ki ima resonancni prostor (se pravi polne stranice za noge) je vseskupaj donelo in to mi je slo na zivce. Zato sem ga zamenjal s tem iz ekternega. No, po pol dneva mi je tale novi disk (wd iz my passport studio) zacel nekaj zvenketati. Tipicni zvok za preskakovanje ali zagozditev glave oz bralne igle. Zato sem danes cel BigBang preiskal, da sem nasel en externi disk, ki je mel noter 320 gb 5400 rpm 8mb cache disk. To je bila Toshiba Storage Art. Proti prvemu 7200 rpm WDju in tudi proti temu iz My Passport studia je razlika neverjetna. Racunalnik nic vec ne vibrira in slisalo se pa ze 5400 WDja ni.
Kaj pa je najvecji hec, ko sem prikljucil umirajoci WD 5400 spet ohisje externega diska ga najprej sploh vec ni hotelo zagnati, domneva je bila potrjena. Nato sem ga malo obracal, nakar se je zagnal, ce je bil obrnjen ravno na glavo. Potem sem naredil Zero – Out format in zdaj spet dela. Res ne vem kaj naj z njim naredim. Garancija je vprasljiva, ker sem ga vzel ven iz externega ohisja….
Si ze kdaj slisal za kaj slicnega?

Dragi bralec, sledeči prispevek je avtobiografske narave. Gre za povzetek delčka (že slišim: “Ja valda, get a life freak!”) mojega življenja v zadnjem mesecu, še posebej pa zadnjih dveh dni. Morda večini ne bo všeč, morda nekomu le bo. Mirne duše ga lahko preskočite, pozabite in zbrišete iz vaših RSS – list. V bistvu je važno le to, da si olajšam dušo, ko delim z vami svoje težave. 🙂

TV Row, od boga poslana aplikacija

front-rowSigurno ste si že skoraj vsi lastniki Front Rowa sposobnih Apple računalnikov in HD TVjev, kdaj zaželeli, da bi lahko na vaši televiziji iz Maca predvajali video posnetek, med tem pa na glavnem zaslonu nadaljevali z delom. Do sedaj je bilo to zelo mukotrpno delo, saj je bilo potrebno vseskupaj narediti z ročnim prenosom meni vrstice na drugi zaslon. No, odslej nič več,  saj bo za to posrkbela zastojnska aplikacija TV Row!

Let’s Rock iPod Dogodek

Slike povedo več kot tisoč besed:

Pričakujemo lahko vsaj novi iPod Nano in nov iPod Touch. O Classicih se trenutno še nič ne govori, a spomnim se lanskih govoric, da bi jih znali ukiniti. Upam, da še nismo tako daleč. Govorice o novih Mac Bookih in Mac Book Projih, se verjetno še ne bodo uresničile v tem tednu. Konec koncev ima Apple akcijo za študente s trenutnim Mac Bookom, ki traja do 15.9.2008. Živi bili, pa videli!

Nujne Mac/Windows aplikacije za iPhone/iPod Touch lastnike

Ker vedno večkrat prebiram na Jabuk.si forumu vprašanja, katera smo že večkrat prežvečili, sem se odločil, da bom zbral najvažnejše programe, s katerimi si lahko uporabo iPhonea poenostavimo. Vse mac aplikacije, ki sem jih naštel uporabljam tudi sam.

Kot dodatek, bi vsem na srce položil tudi temo na Jabuk.si forumu, kjer je Jest zbral povezave do vseh navodil, ki jih slovenski uporabnik iPhonea potrebuje.

How to edit calendar colors for iPhone 2.0.x OS

Since the release of iTunes 8.1, this tutorial is no more needed. iTunes 8.1 finally syncs all the calendar colors corectly. Welcome to the year 2002, Apple!


You’ve probably noticed by now, that calendar colors don’t sync correctly via USB. Currently the only option to get your calendar colors synced to iPhone correctly is by signing up for MobileMe. This isn’t really a good fix. Turns out that if you have a jailbroken/pwnd iPhone/iPod Touch there is an alternative.


Disclaimer: I’ve found this out by chance and the power of will (read: being stubborn). Don’t hold me responsible if you loose any of your data doing this. I’ve done it many times and haven’t lost anything. If you destroy your iPhone or iPod Touch, you should really not have done this in the first place!

On to the tutorial then…

UPDATE:

I just got a reply by a reader saying that there is an easier way to get all your colors to the iPhone. Bellow is the copied commentary. In the comment he states, that because he doesn’t sync with iCal, he isn’t really sure that the colors stay in sync. Turns out they do!  Changing colors just became a hell of a lot more easier. Happy coloring 🙂 !

I found another way to do this, just playing around like you did. Copy calendar.sqlitedb from the /private/var/mobile/Library/Calendar directory on your iPhone to your computer, and make a backup of it (recommended). Open it with SQLite Dabase Editor (http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/) and go to the second tab, “Browse Data”. Under “Table”, choose “Calendar”. This will give you a list of all of the calendars on your phone. Each row is a different calendar. There are three columns – color_r, color_g, and color_b. Set these to whatever you want for your RGB colors for each calendar. (It is not limited to five colors). Save the file and copy it back to your phone.

7. Now the iPhone Calendar as it is, only supports 5 colors, I tried adding more, and it doesn’t really work. You can not assign the colors and in the worst case scenario you’ll only get one color instead of 10 if you try syncing calendars one by one. So I strongly suggest, that you only edit those 5 color settings, as that’s the only way you will be able to reliably set the color of a particular calendar.7.

My conclusions are that the best way to get all colors is to edit the CalendarColors.plist for every 5 calendars that you want to sync. It seems that the color gets assigned at the first sync and it doesn’t change afterwards with changing the CalendarColors.plistMy conclusions are that the best way to get all colors is to edit the CalendarColors.plist for every 5 calendars that you want to sync.

8. That being said, let’s repeat. The only way to get more than 5 colored calendars is by editing the the CalendarColors.plist 2 or more times. First you edit it to match 5 of your calendar’s colors, then you sync those calendars one by one. Doing that, you’ll find out that the colors follow a certain pattern. If you want to have more than 5, edit the CalendarColors.plist again (and upload it to your iPhone/iPod Touch!), then disconnect your iPhone from your computer, exit iTunes and force quit calendar on your phone (by holding the home key while in the calendar app until it quits). Reconnect the iPhone and sync those remaining calendars one by one. Don’t worry you won’t loose the colors of previously set calendars.8. That being said, let’s repeat.

Ni za verjeti, a je resnično: MB + iPod Classic za študente

Danes sem nič hudega sluteč listal po straneh IMC Slovenija, z zapeljivim naslovom www.apple.si, ko sem naletel na sledečo akcijo:

Nice, cene so sicer se vedno za 100 evrov višje kot, v Avstriji, a tam menda ko slovenski študent, ne bi bili opravičeni do te akcije.

Edit: Vidim, da smo dijaki in študenti deležni še 5% popusta v trgovini, tako da je morda vseskupaj le dobrih 40 evrov dražje kot tujina. Čeprav menda, teh dveh akcij ne gre kombinirati.
