Still in the queue for your BBM to be activated, there is trick here (try it while it last) ha ha.

So you are excited to try Blackberry Messenger on your android phone or iphone? But the waiting list is killing your mood. Ha ha you are not alone. Here are tricks to cut queue and get it to work on your phone. We have tried it on many android phones and iPhone. It may not work anymore if Blackberry developer have close this loophole.

1. Find friend that already received the confirmation email from blackberry.
2. When you open up the BBM app and asked to enter your email, enter your friend email and Next
3. Dun worry, your friend email is just to jump the line and voila you are in and asked to enter or create new blackberry id.

You will still received email confirmation from blackberry to verify your account. Just follow the steps in the email and you are fine.

As mention on this title, use this tips while it works. ha ha.

Yes at last the waiting is over. Now Blackberry Messenger is ready for download for both IOS phone and android phones. The only catch here is you will need to queue in line for your BBM be online. The blackberry developer use this line to manage the growth of the users. Good tactics but it is killing to wait for activation. As mention on the blackberry blog, if you already sign up the notification last few months in their site then you don’t have to queue anymore (as what I did) , but if not then you will be in the waiting list. Happy waiting then. ha2. There is actually some tips how to bypass the waiting list but I tried and it doesn’t work.

Basically the interface is ok and after fiddling a while I am able to use the apps quite well.

I can see the end of Blackberry hardware this year but hopefully more innovation is coming for the blackberry messenger.

Oh wow , laser keyboard and holographic features. WOW.
As recorded in youtube, the Fox 5 News “added” two supers features to iPhone 5, it will come with laser keyboard and holographic projector projecting the screen into thin air. If it is available now, I will also wait in the queue for iPhone 5. ha2. Sure this news will boost more people into the line. ha2.

The video clips shown in the news is actually concept video for iPhone 5 design (rumour before iPhone 5 announced), and these are features that all of us dreamt about. but unfortunately it is just a concept for now. ;p I just wonder whether that the news editor checked the news content before it was broadcasted. Lesson learnt.

iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 camera

These are pictures comparison on the same location using iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 (as shown in the iPhone 5 Show Galery)

The same picture was taken using iPhone 4S by Scott from when traveled to Big Sur in California.

As shown, picture taken with iPhone looks sharper and it capture more space as iPhone 5 uses 4.1mm lens for a 33mm field of view compared to iPhone 4S’ 4.3mm lens which resulted in a 35mm field of view. According to Dpreview, the image from the iPhone 5 was taken with ISO 50 setting compared to the iPhone 4S’ ISO 64 setting, which suggests that the iPhone 5 uses a new, improved, slightly larger sensor that is able to take in more light. This matches with Apple’s claims of iPhone 5’s camera being able to take better photos in low-light conditions.

Let wait for the actual review by the iPhone fan’s out there.

Reported earlier in the net, apple is going to out date the iPhone 3GS soon and replace it with the iPhone 4S 8GB which currently available on 16, 32 and 64GB.

For me, iPhone 3GS is my 1st iPhone and I am convert to Apple since than. It has being great experience with it. Even though it is outdated phone, iPhone 3GS still sold quite well for those budget concern user. It proves that iPhone 3GS is more user friendly compared to some phones. Even my 3 years old boy can browse through the apps and play some game without much interference from me.

Anyway, iPhone 4S 8GB will be a great phone to come. For user, we can have new phone with better technology and better content and apps. And for Apple, they can boost more sales on the hardware and of cos more sales on iPhone apps as the new phone will able to support more new apps compared to the 3GS.

Ok just wait and see for the announcement from Apple.

Facebook Camera by Facebook – The simplified picture sharing apps

Facebook Camera is Facebook home grown mobile application for iPhone. You can download it free here.

the intro video for the apps:

Currently at version 1.0.1 you are able to :
–Post a bunch of photos at once
–See friends’ latest photos in one place
–Play with crops and filters
–Tag friends, add captions and say where you are
–See photos from different apps

Currently Facebook Camera is still quite simple compared to the Instagram app that have more complete features. I believed the reason behind why Facebook launch a simple version is for the common user. with this app you can take picture and simplify the photo sharing or uploading to Facebook profile. One of the best features are multiple upload. We can upload few photos at once. Not like the Facebook app where we need to do it picture by picture. Picture editing is also available for users that like to touch up their photos before it get posted.

My question is why Facebook doesn’t want to integrate this to the Facebook app. User can open just one platform and access the features.

These are the screen shots:
