Jailbreaking iOS 5


It didn’t take long for iPhone Dev Team to jailbreak iOS 5 final release. Unfortunately this is a tethered jailbreak you will have to connect your iPhone, iPod or iPad to your computer when the device reboots due to low battery or other factors. No worries, I’m sure iPhone Dev Team is working on iOS to release its untethered jailbreak version. Now, first of all I have to remind you all iOS device holders that this redsn0w jailbreak works on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 CDMA & GSM, iPod touch 3rd & 4th gen, and iPad 1 which means that redsn0w can be runned on devices with A4 processors. If you have iPhone 4S or iPad 2, devices with A5 processors, this ios 5 jailbreak wor’t work, so don’t waste your time trying to install iOS 5 jailbreak on these Apple devices and wait until holy iPhone Dev Team solves the puzzle of A5 processors. Woah, let’s jailbreak iOS 5 now !
Just before we begin, I want to remind you that you must have the latest
version of iTunes installed on your computer and download ios 5 if you haven’t downloaded it yet.
Download redsn0w 0.9.9b4
Here you can also find direct download links of redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for Mac (v 0.9.9b5 here) or for Windows. FYI, this thing will help us jailbreak ios 5, if you haven’t heard about it before.
Jailbreak iOS 5
  1. Open redsn0w and click “Jailbreak” button
  2. Connect the device that you want to jailbreak, and switch it off
  3.  Now enter DFU Mode, if you don’t know how to enter DFU Mode heres a quick guide: hold down sleep button and home button simultaneously for 10 seconds and then release power button but keep holding on home button for 15-20 seconds till you get a notification from redsn0w. It will say that the device is about to enter the DFU Mode.
  4. If you have older version of redsn0w then point iOS 5 IPSW file to redsn0w
  5. If you have newer version of redsn0w then it will download and jailbreak ios 5 automatically
  6. Click “Install Cyndia” and continue jailbreaking your Apple device with ios 5
Now boot your device to get Cyndia to load. After your device is booted, open redsn0w again and select iOS 5 IPSW file previously downloaded under “Extras” tab. As a final step, go back to “Extras” menu, select “Just Boot” option and complete ios 5 jailbreak with on screen instructions. When your iOS 5 device reboots, it is jailbroken!
Thanks Matt from OsxDaily for this great info! I have already jailbroken my iPhone 4 with iOS 5, so I can guarantee that it works. If you have any questions, you can ask them by leaving comments below. Stay tuned for more updates!

Why you'll never have to pay for Facebook

Have you seen this, on one of your friends wall?. 

FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE… PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO...IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY

Millions of Facebook addicts worldwide worry that someday soon they'll have to pay to use the site. Well It's not true! 


Why? - Because Facebook makes its money bringing together as big of an audience as possible and then selling that audience's attention to advertisers. It's a business that works for them.


According to the article that I read on CNN 
If you go to Facebook.com and search for the terms "Facebook free" or "Facebook charge," you'll find hundreds of groups with names like, "If 1 Million People Join Before 9th July 2010 Facebook Will Stay Free!" or "If Facebook Charges A Fee We Will Discontinue Using It." Some of these groups have dozens of users, others have thousands.


During a recent press conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said while Facebook users do care about privacy, the question of whether or not Facebook will eventually charge for its service is actually a much bigger concern among the site's 500 million users.


But are these fears justified?


No! Facebook will never charge you to be a member and use the site.
Don't take it from me. Here's Facebook spokesman Larry Yu on the issue:
"We have absolutely no plans to charge for the basic service of using Facebook."


He continues : "Last year we saw a similar rumor circulating that Facebook was going to begin charging $1.99 to use the site, but this year we're hearing that fee increased to $14.99 with the spread of this rumor. We look forward to hearing what Facebook might be rumored to cost for use next year."


If you press Facebook employees on this, they will tell you the reason they will never charge for access is that putting up a paywall runs counter to the company's mission to make the world more open and connected.


But even if you don't buy that idealistic hoopla, you should understand Facebook has a deep profit motive to never charge you for access.


So while Facebook may charge you for certain bonus features, such as gifts for your friends, or credits to play games like Farmville, it will never charge for basic access to the site.


Why then do people worry Facebook might start charging soon? Probably because Facebook users feel like they're getting something valuable for free, and everybody knows there's no such thing as a free lunch.


Just remember: The fact that you keep coming back to Facebook makes it easier for Facebook to sell more ads -- and make more money.

Google, Intel engage in tag-team tech play


SAN FRANCISCO—A Windows PC desktop powered by a solar cell the size of a postage stamp, several devices that share display contents such as video, photo and notifications seamlessly, a communication tablet that may replace your traditional phone in theoffice, and Google’s Android OS finally getting into Intel’s space—these are what’s in store for consumers, Intel said during the Intel Developer Forum here.
Over the past several years, Intel has been expanding into the mobile devices space, which is growing more rapidly than personal computers.
Intel’s partnership with Google, whose Android is now the most widely used mobile operating system, is expected to accelerate the Santa Clara-based chipmaker’s stalled presence in the smartphone and tablet space.
Intel president and CEO Paul Otellini said smartphones powered by Intel’s Atom chips and running on Android OS would be available in the first half of next year.
The two tech titans will work together to optimize future versions of Android for Intel’s family of low-powerAtom processors. This means that future versions of the Android platform will support Intel technology, in addition to other architectures.
“Combining Android with Intel’s low power smartphone roadmap opens up more opportunity for innovation and choice,” said Andy Rubin, senior vice president at Mobile at Google. “This collaboration will drive the Android ecosystem forward.”
According to Otellini, “by optimizing the Android platform for Intel architecture, we bring a powerful new capability to the market that will accelerate more industry adoption and choice.”
Intel’s demo of a desktop powered by a postage-sized solar cell reaffirms the company’s effort to reduce not only the size of microprocessors but also its power consumption.
Intel’s processor roadmap has now gone into the 22 nm microarchitecture technology with the introduction of thin notebooks called “Ultrabooks.”
The devices are ultrathin powerful notebooks capable of all-day computing with a single battery charge. The Ultrabook also offers 10 days of connected standby battery life.
The device is powered by Intel’s next-generation microprocessor called “Haswell” and it will hit the shelves next year.
Otellini said the Haswell project is a result of the company’s obsession with power reduction.
He predicted the microprocessor platform power innovation will reach levels that are difficult to imagine today.

In order to have a healthy lifestyle [I've taken 3 steps]


Health is wealth and I do believe on this. Health is more important than your money, If you're not healthy, if you're getting sick all the time, all your riches doesn't matter.

I got sick and admitted at the hospital last Saturday and discharge yesterday because of Acute Gastroenteritis infectious in etiology. Whew! thanks God it didn't get worse.

Yesterday when I was about to leave the  hospital, the nurse gave us the hospital bill. Our bill went up to 11 thousand plus, inlcuding the professional fee of the Doctor. I was thinking  that time if I don't have a Philhealth, I will pay  eleven thousand pesoses!. Luckily I have a Philhealth it lessen the total bill!.
I thought my bill ends there, but the Doctor gave me a prescription medicine . *Sigh, I have to by those medicine in order for me to fully recover.

Here's my follow up medicine for five days. I also research of its meaning through wikipedia.

Ciprofloxacin
Ciprofloxacin - is used to treat a number of infections including: infections of bones and joints, endocarditis, gastroenteritis, malignant otitis externa, respiratory tract infections, cellulitis, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, anthrax, chancroid, among others.

Appebon [Vitamin B-Complex + Iron Buclizine Hydrochloride] 
¤Appebon - I heard that Appebon vitamins is use on gaining extra pounds?., I don't know why the Doctor game this medicine, I'm not underweight naman!.

¤Buclizine Hydrochloride - is actually an antihistamine. It is of synthetic origin, belonging to Piperazine. Buclizine is mainly used for anti-emetic action, particularly in prevention of motion sickness. It is also used in combination with analgesics to treat migraine attacks. As an appetite stimulant, it is compared to cyproheptadine- an appetite stimulant banned in UK.
Unlike cyproheptadine, buclizine increases both appetite and absorption of food in the body. It doesn’t affect the growth hormone levels. Cyproheptadine increases appetite by inhibiting growth hormone. Therefore, cyproheptadine is not good for the growth in children. More to this, buclizine is better than cyproheptadine because it can maintain weight gain even after the discontinuation of treatment.

I don't want to get sick anymore and get admitted. So I have three things in my mind right now Eat right, Be Physically active and drink plenty glasses of water a day.

Eating right
¤I believe on the saying "You are what you eat". The notion that, to be fit and healthy you need to eat good food that is full of nutrients. Remember the lesson you had on your school days?, the GO, GLOW and GROW foods? . You should start to review that.

Physically active
¤Last year I started making a ran twice a month. I also have this basketball game with my officemates once a week. As far as you can imagine, I am physically active last year it keeps my body moving and healthy.
Unfortunately this year, it was a complete turn down for me. The only exercise I did is walking everyday going to office, fingers tap at my computer's keyboard for almost seven months. I convince myself that I was "too busy" but in reality I can make a time for it if I want to. I get physically lazy this year.

Drinking water
¤When I was admitted, most of my wardmates advice is to drink a lots! yeah a lots of water!. Don't you know that 75% of your body is water and 90% of your brain. But doesn't that tell you something? Keep a glass of water handy, there's nothing that can replace it. I used to drink coke more often, but because of what happened to me I begun to train myself drinking 8 -10 glasses a day. Drinking water is so important that you must add this to achieve your goal of a healthy body.


This one point cannot be emphasized enough - if you wait until you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated and this is affecting your cells.
It's been said that your sense of thirst decreases as you get older: it's probably true but not just because you're older.
This only happens if you tend to ignore your body. Your need for water certainly does not decrease.

Water is essential to all the vital functions of your body.

1. Reduces the risk of so many health issues people face, especially cancer: bladder, breast, colon and kidney. And done together with raw foods and cleansing, it's a natural cancer cure.
2. Regular hydration will boost your energy levels
3. It will also boost your immune system and mental sharpness.
4. You need water to speed up recovery from injuries.
5. Cleansing and detoxing absolutely requires water. Don't spend money on colon cleansers or any other detoxing system and then neglect drinking lots of water. You may be doing more harm than good.
6. Last but certainly not least, drinking water instead of liquids that rob your body will enhance sexual performance.

Its not late to change your lifestyle, Don't wait to get sick in order to value your health. Lesson learned from  experience. ;)

Ano ba ang nangyari sa akin? [biglaan]

Gastroenteritis (also known as gastric flu, stomach flu, and stomach virus. Different species of bacteria can cause gastroenteritis, including Salmonella, Shigella, Staphylococcus, Campylobacter jejuni, Clostridium, Escherichia coli, Yersinia, Vibrio cholerae, and others. Some sources of the infection are improperly prepared food, reheated meat dishes, seafood, dairy, and bakery products. Each organism causes slightly different symptoms but all result in diarrhea. Colitis, inflammation of the large intestine, may also be present.
Risk factors include consumption of improperly prepared foods or contaminated water and travel or residence in areas of poor sanitation. It is also common for river swimmers to become infected during times of rain as a result of contaminated runoff water. - wikipedia


Day 1 Saturday

Isang hindi inaasahang pangyayari ang naganap sa akin noong sabado July 30, 2011 ng hapon. Ako ay kasalukuyang nag kkompyuter, facebook at twitter ng biglang sumakit ang aking tiyan, dumumi ng paulit ulit at nagsuka.Alas otso ng gabi, Apat na oras kong tiniis ang sakit napapaluha na ako, hangga't hindi ko na kinaya at pumunta na kami ng hospital.

Pagdating namin ng emergency room ay sinuri agad ako ng doktor. Nagtanong kung ano ang nakain ko, ang suspect ko ay ang gravy na nilagay ko sa ref nung huwebes at sabado ko lang siya kinain, pwede rin ung kinain ko nung Friday night sa EAT ALL YOU CAN sa TONGYAN ba un? nilantakan ko kasi seafoods!.. at ayun nga kelangan ako iconfine dahil sa sobrang hinang hina na ako. Kinuhaaan ako ng Blood test at rinig ko na ang platelets ng dugo ko ay bumaba sa 95 nagkaroon din ako ng lagnat at dehyderated din ako.

Night of August 1. Tatlong pasyente nalang kami.
Ang sabi ng doktor ay may early signs daw ako ng dengue fever pero hindi pa nila sigurado hangga't hindi pa lumalabas ang laboratory result kinabakusan. Pinaupo nko sa wheel chair at inakyat sa ward pagdating sa ward room nandun lahat ng mga ka wardmates ko, lahat sila ay dengue fever ang case. so kamusta naman? lalo ako kinabahan na dengue nga case ko kasi sila lahat dengue ang case eh. 

Walang Tv sa room, that time hindi ko pa dala cell ko. Naki text lang ako sa ermat ko para itext sila prince at abraham na hindi ako makakasama sa kanila sa enchanted kingdom. Ayaw pa nga maniwala ni abraham dahil nung oras na iyon ay ka text ko pa siya bago sumakit tyan ko. Nagulat ako ng biglang nag text si Ayes sa cell ng Mom ko, tinext pala siya ng erpat ko gamit cell ko.. Well, Di ko expect un ah. Kinamusta niya ako kung ano nangyari sa akin. ;)

Sa sobrang bored ko hiniram ko cell ng Mom ko at nag FB tweet ako!.

Then kinagabighan bumisita si doktora at pansin siya sa akin then pina check ang POTASSIUM ko. Bagsak ang Potassium ko! so dalawa na ang ginagamot sa akin.
That day tinext ko HR/Accounting/TEAM LEADER namin na hindi ako makakapasok at para narin maasikaso ang Philhealth ko. [Sir Jun P., Jonathan J. Mam: Kate, Weng and Ms. Mylen. Thanks!]
Salamat din pala sa pagdalaw ng Tita, Tito and pinsan ko. Sila Erbie, Joan, Abraham and Prince galing pa kayo sa enchanted kingdom at dinalaw pa ako! salamat!. Kay Jeremee tnx sa pagdalaw! nakipag peace offering din!..

Medyo okay na pakiramdam ko, Potassium nalang hindi. Another boring day, I have my cellfone that time na [NOKIA E66 lang] nag register ako sa SUPERSURF. I updated the OVI store and download ng applications! haha. Ang galing kasi nakakapag FB CHAT ako using my phone tapos twitter pa!. So no need to buy a new phone for me kuntento na ako dito!.
Habang umaandar ang oras bawat ka wardmates ko ay nakikilala ko ang kuwento kung bakit sila na confine, hindi naman sa tsismoso ako no! eh iisang room lang kami kaya rinig na rinig. May mga ka wardmate ako na BUMBAY, ung isa naman second life niya na kasi nag agaw buhay dahil sa dengue, ung isa naman call center agent ng e-telecare, at ung isa ay MUSLIM na kung saan saan nangutang para may ipambayad at May mangilan ngilan na dumadalawa ay inaalagaan siya ng JOWA which is napapaisip ako, medyo inggit at nagtatanong sa sarili na bakit wala pa akong girl friend?. Emoness that time.Haha!. Kinagabihan bumisita ang aking pinsan na si Cristine ilang months na din kami di nagkita eh :). Bumisita rin si doktora para saibhin na pwede na akong lumabas! yahoo. Nag thank you ako sa kanya. Dumalaw rin pala ung Pedia doktor ko! haha. If you don't know guys pangatlong beses na akong na confine sa FAIRVIEW GENERAL HOSPITAL!.. 

Day 4 Tuesday

Dextrose sa kanang kamay! at sa
kaliwa naman tadtad ng blood test!

Malaya na ako! parang nakapiit ako sa selda sa sobrang ka boringan sa hospital, buti nalang may cellfone, at may mga nag kkwentuhan dahil dun lang ako naaaliw habang pinagmamasdan ko sila. Minsan ginagawan ko pa sila ng kwento sa aking pag iisip. haha!. I thank God dahil safe ako! my Mom and Dad for taking care of me my friends!. kahit hindi dengue grabe pa din ung pinagdaanan ko! siguro kung di pa ako nag pa confine mas grabe pa ang nangyari sa akin. Ang dami kong na realize habang nasa hospital ako, nagkaroon ako ng oras para makapag isip isip.

Sa mga nagmalasakit. Nais kong pasalamatan ang mga taong ito.

$400,000 EACH FOR 2 GAMES



EVER wondered how much Lakers star Kobe Bryant, reigning MVP Derrick Rose of the Bulls and Kevin Durant of the Thunder made in their two-game swing recently at the Araneta Coliseum against a selection of PBA stars and Smart-Gilas Pilipinas?

A whopping $400,000 each, according to Sam Amick of SI.com, the official website of the Sports Illustrated magazine, and the story was later picked up by Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo! Sports. That translates to P16,888,000 per player, based on the current exchange rate of P42.22 to the dollar.

That is hardly chump change, especially if ranged against the maximum monthly take-home pay of P350,000 by PBA stars who battled Bryant and Co. last Saturday.

In the SI.Com story, Amick said: "Don’t let this news take you over as some sort of greedy run. The stars spiraled their way toward Manila to play basketball without any sort of insurance, and though the pay isn’t commensurate with the services provided, this was still a well-earned engagement."

The three, along with Chris Paul of New Orleans, Tyreke Evans of Sacramento, James Harden of Oklahoma, JaVale McGee of Washington, Derrick Williams of Minnesota and Derek Fisher of the Lakers, were brought here by the Manny V. Pangilinan Sports Foundation.

The SI and Yahoo! Sports reports, however, were denied by TNT coach Chot Reyes, the vice president of the Foundation, who claimed the visitors were paid much less.

"That’s not true, that amount was too much," Reyes told Malaya Business Insight. "Mas maliit sa amount na nabanggit. And we didn’t pay all players equal amount. Siyempre, may mataas at may mababa."

Reyes admitted Bryant, a five-time NBA champion with the Lakers, a one-time MVP and two-time Finals MVP, received more than Rose, Durant and the rest.

A source close to the MVP group of companies estimated Bryant must have received no less than $300,000, while Durant and Rose got $250,000 each. The rest, the same source said, received $150,000 to $200,000 each.

Reyes said that while Pangilinan spent a fortune in bringing the stars here, it was worth it since the recent visit set the stage for a series of big projects involving the Foundation and the NBA.

Dwyer said the take-home pay of Bryant and Co. "is a nice tax-free gift that will help stave off the potential debt-collectors should the current NBA lockout cost them a year’s salary. Though the combined millions that were sent the way of the traveling NBA stars no doubt put last weekend’s event in the red, the payoff was apparently worth it for all involved."

Bryant stands to make more than $25 million in the first year of his three-year contract extension with the Lakers while Durant should earn more than $13 million in the first year of his five-year contract extension with the Thunder.

Rose is in the third year of his four-year rookie contract with the Bulls and is set to make $7 million this year, which translates to $85,000 per game.
