How to get your iPhone unlocked – and make your own micro sim

So I am one of the many tortured AT&T customers. Generally I am on the phone with them once a month, either because they overbill, or say one thing and do another, or just generally mess things up.

workflow – for the mac. some hints for pc.

[UPDATE: I have added and changed a few things here after working with the apps for a while now. Mostly I would say I cannot image life anymore without Dropbox, and Devonthink is an amazing power tool for anything relating to research, especially since I imported all my archival material and OCR’d it.

my favorite iPad apps

As I said, I am a recent iPad convert (iPad 3, preordered on launch day…. greedy. I know. bought the WiFi 32GB model.) So here is a list of my (so far) favorite iPad apps. First of all: get dropbox. Dropbox is a lifesaver, and I am not exaggerating. Install dropbox app on ipad (free). […]

I just discovered omnifocus. I know, it’s been around for a long time, but I am just getting into the iPad mania, and have developed an interest in all things workflow – now centered around writing (yes, the days or 3D renderings are over. for now). I have to say, omnifocus is genius. And yes, […]
