Off to Xiamen, China…

I’m off to Xiamen, China with my dad for a sourcing trip. I really hope that we can find some viable designs for the brands that I’m handling. This will be a short trip and I’ll be back in Manila on the 28th Saturday.

I’ve never really paid attention to which factory I head to when on these trips well now that I’ve a GPS enabled device and more importantly maps for the place I will be going to I hope I can plot these points of interest. Previously on my HTC TyTN II, I used MapKing R12 and only purchased the map for Metro Manila [it was the only one available] now that I am using Garmin Mobile XT on my palm Treo Pro I was able to grab a more current map made by Pinoys from a forum.

I reckon I can use Google Maps as a backup to Garmin if the map I loaded is not enough for this trip [as I said I don’t pay attention to where we go]. I’ve loaded the map for Fujian, China it’s a province which includes Xiamen and Jin Jiang which I am told we frequent for the factories.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
