It'll teach you how to create a new hidden folder, hide a folder that's already existing, unhide a folder that's currently hidden, and how to access those hidden folders that you create on your Mac. It's pretty useful for those of you who have a lot of "secret" files. ;)

iPhoneSimFree Updates Website, Posts Links To Online Resellers

iPhoneSimFree, makers of a software unlocking solution for the iPhone, just launched their new webstie. It features a new design and they've also added a tutorial section on how to unlock the iPhone with their software. They've also posted a "where to buy" section that has links to online resellers of the iPhoneSimFree unlocking software.

I just checked the website of one of the resellers from Australia, iPhoneWorldUnlock, and you can buy the software from them via PayPal. They accept USD for international customers. As of this post, they are selling it for $50 (USD).

Wireless Imports, on the other hand, is selling it for almost double the price at $99 (USD). And according to their website, they "now have the software and are beginning to test it and will begin to email out the unlocking software shortly to those who have already placed an order in the order in which they were recieved.".

So does this mean that iPhone users in the Philippines can now get a copy of iPhoneSimFree and unlock their iPhones for use with any of our local GSM networks? So it seems. But I won't confirm this 100% unless I actually see one. So if anyone out there gets to unlock their iPhones using iPhoneSimFree, let us know!

The World's Most Expensive iPod


The iDiamond by jewelry designer Thomas Heyerdahl of Norway is a gold and diamond encrusted iPod Shuffle. Decorated with over 400 diamonds, this mp3 player is valued at around $41,000 (USD). I don't think this one's going to get a price cut anytime soon.

According to the Heyerdahl website, the iDiamond is not for sale and will be on display in their Oslo shop until October 1.

Open-source Software For Mac OS X

Where to find a list of open-source applications for Mac OS X...

OpenSourceMac.org is a great place to visit if you're looking for some open-source applications for Mac OS X. The site design is very simple and they only showcase the ones they think are the best and easiest to use, so you won't end up getting too confused with so many choices. But the selection is extensive enough. There are the basic apps grouped into categories which include web browsers, IM clients and media players to name a few. They also feature other applications that are more specialized such as 3D modeling software and IDEs.

So if you're looking for any open-source apps, do visit OpenSourceMac.org. Even if you're not looking for anything specific, just check out the list and you might find something interesting.

Apple Announces New iPod Line

Apple today revealed the new iPod family.
The iPod Shuffle now comes in 4 new colors and the original silver.
The iPod Classic holds up to 160GB of music, pictures & videos, and comes in a sleek, all-metal design.
"A little video for everyone."

I love the tag line for the new iPod Nano, which now has video capabilities. It's as thin as the previous Nano, shorter, but wider. It comes in 5 different colors, has a 2-inch color LCD, and holds up to 8GB.

(PRODUCT) RED is now available as a Nano and a Shuffle. Proceeds go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.

And lastly...

Rumors of an upcoming widescreen iPod have been around since early 2006. And now, Apple finally announces the new iPod Touch. It's got a 3.5-inch widescreen display, a multi-touch interface and Wi-Fi capabilities that let you browse the web, watch videos from YouTube, and buy music from the iTunes store. And it looks just like an iPhone. A pity it only comes in 8GB and 16GB models. But I still think it's awesome.

So what about you? Do you like 'em? Check out the new iPod family.
