Save files to your iPhone with filemarks

Category: Entertainment,Networking,Uncategorized — EclipseEmpire @ 1:42 pm

As some of you know, I purchased a new iPhone on launch day. A lot of people have listed their complaints, of which I only agree with one … not being able to store files on your phone. Now you can. Safari and “Mobile” Safari both are able to display data:URL files. There is now an easy way to create these files to store in your iPhone bookmarks:
Filemark Maker lets you store high-res images, text files, and PDFs on an iPhone, which Apple doesn’t allow you to do. By storing the data in a bookmark you can just open it in MobileSafari, even when the phone is offline. Free, source available.

The program is for OSX and it supports .doc, .xls, .rtf, .txt, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif, .pdf, or .html.

Should you Trust Open DNS Free Service – Pros & Cons Debated

Category: Internet,Networking,Uncategorized — EclipseEmpire @ 10:18 am

OpenDNS is a new start up that wants users to redirect web traffic through its DNS nameservers, where an unusually large cache and an aggregated list of sites deemed guilty of phishing will make our web surfing faster and safer. It’s free and as simple as changing your DNS address from your ISP and to OpenDNS, but a number of serious concerns

– There is also some positive reviews at the bottom of this post.

Ubergeek

Category: Uncategorized — EclipseEmpire @ 9:24 pm
ubergeek: n., /oo´ber·geek/
[common; often spelled with initial ü; from German über + geek]
geek: n.

A person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance. Geeks usually have a strong case of neophilia. Most geeks are adept with computers and treat hacker as a term of respect, but not all are hackers themselves — and some who are in fact hackers normally call themselves geeks anyway, because they (quite properly) regard ‘hacker’ as a label that should be bestowed by others rather than self-assumed.

One description accurately if a little breathlessly enumerates “gamers, ravers, science fiction fans, punks, perverts, programmers, nerds, subgenii, and trekkies. These are people who did not go to their high school proms, and many would be offended by the suggestion that they should have even wanted to.”

Originally, a geek was a carnival performer who bit the heads off chickens. (In early 20th-century Scotland a ‘geek’ was an immature coley, a type of fish.) Before about 1990 usage of this term was rather negative. Earlier versions of this lexicon defined a computer geek as one who eats (computer) bugs for a living — an asocial, malodorous, pasty-faced monomaniac with all the personality of a cheese grater. This is often still the way geeks are regarded by non-geeks, but as the mainstream culture becomes more dependent on technology and technical skill mainstream attitudes have tended to shift towards grudging respect.
