3 Reasons Why I Think the 3G iPhone is Important Even If I'm Not Getting One

1st I would like to say that I won't be getting a 3G iPhone I still think it's not the phone for me, perfectly happy with Windows Mobile.

That being said I still think it's an important device because of how it can change or affect us.

1. It Encourages More Cool Devices - Globe got the 3G iPhone as an exclusive. I'm sure SMART will try to bring in phones to compete with it. Meaning we get those juicy iPhone killers (usually Windows Mobile). I am not a fan of carrier locking of devices but in this case it will have a positive effect for me at least

2. It Encourages Better Carrier Service and Rates - Apple is very iffy about service and I'm sure they are pressuring Globe to put out not only good support in terms of network/coverage and speed/stability but data plans as well. What does this mean for an ex-subscriber? Simple: if Globe improves SMART must step up and upgrade as well. We all win!

3. iTunes Might Become 'Really' Useful - iTunes may primarily be used to sync your iPod but for me iTunes is aslo a platform to discover an purchase media. In fact, Apple just opened up their App Store for the Philippines. Aside from the obvious plus of Pinoy iPhone and iPod Touch users being able to buy applications it is also a step into the right direction. Hopefully after applications, Apple considers selling other content like music, tv shows, and movies. Wishing that this were sooner rather than later.

So you see even if I don't intend to buy an iPhone I think I will still benefit from it being officially available in the Philippines.

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_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
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
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 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.…
