All Electric Week

1. Adriana’s tricycle is still going strong with no problems, as Kim attested: 2. Tesla launched the new Model 3, priced at US$ 35k, before rebates. Very nice… dream car. 3. Took my bike to the shop and came out with the Specialized Turbo bike to test for 2 days. Very cool guys at Calmar Cycles! The ride is amazing – you feel like superman zooming by even the fastest road bikers. Unfortunately they limit the top speed to 28 mph (45 km/h). 4. Not to mention the constant sightings of Google’s self-driving electric car!

HCI Lecture – Interactive Systems for Learning Programming at Scale

Went to a very interesting lecture by Philip Guo from University of Rochester  “Interactive Systems for Learning Programming at Scale”.  He’s the creator of – an open site to help you visually understand what your code is doing.  Here’s a demo video:

iPhone Unlock site

Just for reference – found this site,, to be by FAR the best site for unlocking your iPhone. It addresses most situations, 1.0.2 and 1.1.1 unlocking, unbricking, jailbreaking, activating and all. Note: 1.1.2 out of the box(OTB) iPhones have not been unlocked via software as of yet. This has only been achieved by using TurboSIM – a very cool product – a SIM card and APIs to develop SIM Toolkit applications + 802.15.4 2.4GHz radio for mobile phones AND ZigBee optional! The “hackers” used it to unlock the iPhone’s GSM features.
