Apple iPhone Is Hacked

July 5, 2007

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

In less than 6 days the Norwegian hacker, Jon Lech Johansen managed to hack the Apple iPhone.

A lot of hackers tried to be the first one to hack it, but DVD Jon was the first one to bypass the activation codes. In order to hack the iPhone you have to use a program called Phonce Activation Server 1.0 and some “magic numbers”.

After the hack the iPhone can be used as an iPod, to browse the net and read mails using WiFi. You still have to activate the iPhone, in order to use it as a phone.

It won’t be long before the SIM-card is hacked too.

Another way to avoid activation is to use a SIM-card from an already activated iPhone, but you can read more about that on the Apple iPhone Hack WiKi.

I’ve got a confession to make. I didn’t fulfill last week’s motivation, so Denmark lost the soccer match to Sweden.

BUT fate sure has a VERY special way of showing me. What caused all the commotion? I forgot to do my exercises. You don’t want to miss the movie at the end of this post.

10 Ways to Generate Traffic

May 29, 2007

From time to time I come across different blogs that shows you how to generate more traffic. I recently stumbled upon Yaro Starak’s blog and found some rather interesting tips. He is about to launch his Blog Mastermind-program, which I will give you a preview of here:
“In every bloggers life comes a special day - the day they first launch a new blog. Now unless you went out and purchased someone else’s blog chances are your blog launched with only one very loyal reader - you. Maybe a few days later you received a few hits when you told your sister, father, girlfriend and best friend about your new blog but that’s about as far you went when it comes to finding readers.

Here are the top 10 techniques new bloggers can use to find readers. These are tips specifically for new bloggers, those people who have next-to-no audience at the moment and want to get the ball rolling.

It helps if you work on this list from top to bottom as each technique builds on the previous step to help you create momentum. Eventually once you establish enough momentum you gain what is called “traction”, which is a large enough audience base (about 500 readers a day is good) that you no longer have to work too hard on finding new readers. Instead your current loyal readers do the work for you through word of mouth.

Top 5 Common Issues with Joost and How to Solve Them

May 17, 2007

Based on the success with the previous article about how to improve Joost performance. I have created a Top 5 list over the five busiest threads on the Joost support forum and of course the solution to the issues.

  1. Can Joost run behind a proxy-server?
  2. An error occured, unable to connect to the server
  3. Tweak to remove audio and video buffering. Windows and Mac
  4. Tvprunner - Application error, also works with other application errors
  5. How to get Joost in Windows Vista Media Center

Good luck and let me know how it went and if I missed anything.

So what do you think of Joost? Does it need improvement? More channels? Did it live up to your expactations?

Update: Windows audio tweak is updated.

Website Grader - Free SEO and Meta-Data Analyzer for Your Site

May 13, 2007

I just found this tool, Website Grader, that will look at the current status of a website, no registration or email address required.

It takes about a minute to process a website, but after that it will provide you with a lot of useful information. For instance your Alexa rank, Google Page Rank, Tecnorati Rank, Delicious Saved Count and Meta-data. On top of that it gives you a Website Grade. The grade is calculated from the 25,000+ websites that has been submitted to Website Grader and compares your marketing value to theirs. The algorithm uses a proprietary blend of over a dozen different variables, including search engine data, website structure, approximate traffic, site performance, and others.

In the analysis proces you can supply your competing websites and compare your competitors stats to your own. Since I have no real competitors (well not that I know of) I submitted the two sites from my Blogroll, Connected Internet and SMOblog. You can see the analysis results with the meta-data, Website Grade, Page Rank, SEO and so forth here.
