Be Accurate With Your Venues / Spots

Location based services is a lot of fun, and I like that people are
getting in on it.It's crowd sourced and thus creates the problem of inaccurate venues / spots.

I doubt this is very accurate

palm Treo Pro: Battered & Bruised VIEW SLIDE SHOWDOWNLOAD ALL Here is my very battered and bruised palm treo pro. 2 years plus of usage can do this to a device… I am considering retiring this for good (while it is still functioning) and moving GPS duties to a different Windows Mobile device. Unfortunately there aren’t a whole lot of choices any more.

Play Alert Tones Ten Times

More iOS 4.3 beta 1 stuff...I know a few people who'd benefit from this. Now if only Apple allowed
custom SMS alerts. I'd be a happy camper if they allowed custom email
& calendar alerts. The default ones are either too soft or too boring
to be useful.I doubt we'll see that in 4.3 may be it will be a tent pole feature in iOS 5?

Hong Kong Primer

Money and Modes of Payment
The HKD is pegged at 7.7HKD per USD.
I usually buy HKD locally and bring extra USD. It's best to exchange by 100USD only don't exchange all your USD. The hotel or airport or even banks can change this for you (although banks charge a small fee).
Also swipe when you can. I prefer to swipe with big amounts so I get points and my cash is not depleted for shops that do not honor plastic.
Octopus card this is like a pre-paid debit card used for transportation and paying in shops I'd advise getting 1 as it makes things much more convenient.

Transportation
To and From the Airport - I suggest riding CitiFlyer bus [HKD40.00/adult] if you are not in a hurry. Check where you are staying then look for where to get off here. http://www.hongkongairport.com/eng/transport/to-from-airport/index.html

MTR - this is the HKG tube system very convenient although it gets congested during rush hour. …

Can I have an 8oz Black Coffee, Please

I’ve decided to switch to fluid ounces instead of following Starbucks crazy and totally stupid cup naming convention. I’ve been ordering using their short, tall, grande, venti scheme for so long that I fear it might take some time to un-learn this bullshit naming system.Can I have an 8oz Black Coffee, Please.If you are reading this blog post I hope you join me in de-programming yourselves from Starbucks marketing.

Review|Zara

I’ve been waiting for this to get released ever since I first heard it on Above & Beyond’s TATW well at last it’s here and I’m really enjoying this track. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Arty is one talented DJ/Producer. Oliver Smith amazing as always on remix duties. I’d rank this as a very close second for Jan 2011 top track. Number 1 goes to Kyau & Albert’s Barbizon which I blogged about earlier.You can get Zara from TID.net
