Killing Time in ICT 11

LOL…last time around (as in last year), I was killing time in IT 9. Now I’m killing time in ICT 11. I don’t know what I should write right now, I’m just going to ramble on about random stuff.

Let’s see…Oh I recently upgraded my iPad to iOS 5, which was released on October 12th. It includes over 200 new features. Some of my favourites include PC-free, WiFi Sync, and iCloud integration. As of jailbreaks, there are currently no jailbreaks for iOS5 on iPad 2. There are, however, tethered jailbreaks for all other devices running iOS5. I have not upgraded my iPod touch 4G to this new firmware as I am waiting for an untethered jailbreak. For those of you who don’t know what the difference between tethered and untethered is, a tethered jailbreak requires you to basically “rejailbreak” your device everytime it reboots. In other words, if your iDevice suddenly dies while you’re on the road, it’s the end for you, unless you happen to carry your computer with you everywhere. An untethered jailbreak is a jailbreak that doesn’t have this issue.

Well that’s all I have to talk about right now. More stuff later!

Peace,

Steve Jobs passed away…

Today is a sad day.

Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, has passed away.

This tragedy comes right after the day Apple announces their (next week) release of the iPhone 4S, iOS5, and iCloud.

I will remember Steve Jobs as the guy who was the centre of the company. I thank him for his brilliant contributions to the world with the iMac, MacBook, iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Things would have never been the same without him, and it is a great loss to everyone, including his family, and the international technology community. I give my condolences to his family, who are suffering the most right now.

This is all I can say right now.

Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs, and be proud of what you have left behind,

One month gone, more to go…*sigh*

Well, time sure flies by. It’s now October, and I’ve settled in school. Recently, I’ve been going to badminton drop ins in the community centre near my house with Franklin Cokeng, Andrew Li, and Andy Lee. I’ve also went to one basketball drop in as well with Franklin Cokeng and Ray Low. To my surprise, it was actually really fun.
Another thing I should mention is that on the weekend, my friend Hani Dbouk broke his collar bone while playing soccer in Surrey. My coach confirmed it with our entire team, and it’s tough to lose a player on the team. Best wishes for his recover on my behalf.
I’m a little sick right now with a sore throat and a runny nose. Hopefully it doesn’t develop into something more intense that I have to miss school.
Speaking of school, I handed in an assignment (newspaper assignment on WWI) to my Socials teacher a week ago, and I just got it back with a mark of 42 out of 50. It looks like I need to work harder to attain the A I desperately want in Social Studies 11.

Anyways, I need to do homework right now, so I’ll be blogging again soon. I also need to get downloading on the fall Animes…hehe.

Cheers!
