Tap-Dictionary is like an add-on to your default Safari browser on your Apple devices. Simply tap words while browsing and this App will work the rest for you. Follow the below steps to enable this App.

Pages App for iPhone

I have just downloaded Pages which costs USD$9.9. I would say it is useful if you are patient enough to work in this small screen and toggling objects all around with fingers.

There are many varieties and default objects you can choose from menu. However graphic is not very smooth and objects are very hard to control. Is it worth paying $9.9 for this App, Keynote or Numbers on iPhone? I would only do a thumb up for iPad.

Apple strategy for iOS5

When iOS4 came out there were lots of changes however iOS is still not user friendly. Steve Jobs announced iOS5 with the biggest topic of this WWDC, iCloud. Beta is already available for Apple developers.

iCloud it’s like a virtual media for you to share all your files and everything between networks.

Apple created iOS4 with inefficiency and iOS5 with better functionality and mobility I would say, developer always create issues and sell another product to debug it. Besides, those “new functions” are not new to some of us since jailbreaker experienced them long time back already.

Though I cannot wait to experience on-hand with the better smoothness and compatibility of the notification menu. Your mummy can finally sync their Apple devices easier by putting them on the dock not by putting them on the to-do list. Most probably Apple is going to announce iPhone5 this fall with iOS5 with Lion, then start selling it few months later with better versions. At least some rumors are unveiled now, looking forward to more excitements.

What happened to the next generation of PDA’s? Not long ago there were PDA’s that were at times more useful than desktop or laptop computers. A search for the latest 2009 models reveal a technical mistake of sorts, if you want to even call it that:

Iphones, Blackberrys, and even SMARTPHONES are listed as PDA’s?!

Okay let’s take a step back here, and try to let it sink in a bit. I’m in no way a purist but I hardly think an Iphone can be considered a PDA. It has PDA-like capabilities, but the idea of trying to sync outlook with an Iphone is about as funny as the idea of trying to play Mario kart with a Blackberry Curve.

Quite simply put the technological world, at least by name, thinks of the Iphone as a PDA and the former mentioned PDA’s (Ipaq, Axim) as Pocket PC’s. I guess it makes sense though, if you own any of these Pocket PC’s.

The really sad thing about this comparison is that pocket pc’s not only have a faster processor, but more memory through expansions (Flash cards, SD cards) more hardware through expansion, better screens (seriously, is anyone going to argue the Ipaq hx2700 doesn’t blow away an Iphones pitiful screen?) more configurable operating systems (windows mobile, linux, and soon the google op system Android.)

Wait, let me say that again.

They are PORTING ANDROID TO POCKET PC.

Lower prices…And then of course, wifi. My old arse Axim x50v, while playing Final Fantasy VII, laughs deeply at all Blackberry’s.

No offense to Apple, but a five year old ‘Pocket PC’ still has a ton more features and specs than the Iphone will ever have.

Mac’s font is PC users’ envy?

Here are links from ipodwizard.net, you can download the Myriad Apple TTF and Myriad Pro

Once you have downloaded them, unzip them, copy and paste them into your Fonts file.

The directory would be C:\WINDOWS\Fonts

Those fonts  can be used in almost everywhere, you can use them in communication softwares like msn, word processing softwares like Word, etc.
