In August Apple lost a great man, a businessman.. Yesterday the whole world lost a great mind.

Steve Jobs for Fortune magazine

The man who believed there CAN be stores selling products from only one company.
The man who dreamed that every home should have a computer (or two..).
The man who built the foundation of OS X.
The man who convinced the music industry to stop fighting the web for piracy, but instead USE it.
The man who gave us Pixar.
The show man.
The man who reinvented the phone.
The man who managed to make his biggest competitors talk sweet about him and even push back lawsuits between MEGA corporations.

The man who made me happy since that sweet day that I bought my first MacBook Pro.
We all know this list has no end.

Thank you Rainbow SA for giving me the chance to learn more about this man and see probably some of the best decisions he ever made while taking Apple from the floor and driving it to the top of the world.

Thank you Steve Jobs for everything you gave me..

..oh.. one more thing, this is not about X, macs, phones, music or any other product.

PS. Its the saddest place to be online. It used to be the other way around.


Thank you Chari for the awesome job on the portrait.  

iPhone SMS report.

As Chistian Cantrell said a few years ago, iPhone is 5 years ahead & 5 years back at the same time and I couldn’t agree more. One of the main features that a user, coming from the non fruit-world, is probably used to is the SMS report. For the jailbroken iDevices there are many solutions but what happens with the simple, non-Geek user? It seems the solution is simple but it costs a few characters on each SMS.

So far I was only able to test this with Cosmote so if you test it with the other providers and it doesn’t work please DO share. For each SMS you have to start the message with the short “code” and then simply type your sms text.

So here is the list with all the providers I was able to find:

For COSMOTE start your message with: *0#

For VODAFONE start your message with: *#

For WIND start your message with: *NOT#

For Q-TELECOM start your message with: !

When the other person gets the message you receive an SMS informing you with the status. For example on my test, Cosmote send me the message of: “Message #183 to 690****** sent at 2011-04-06 15:35:00 has been delivered at  2011-04-06 15:35:00”!

Aint that cool? iPhone seems like a real phone again 😉

(Thanks to this guy who made the list.)
