Lovlig unlock/oplåsning af iPhone 3G hos / via Telia. [More]
I have heard about podcast for a long time and of cause knew what it was, but if you should be in doubt here goes: According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, a podcast is "a digital recording of a radio broadcast or similar program, made available on the Internet for downloading to a personal audio player," but the generally accepted definition has expanded to include video as well as audio. Originally derived from a combination of "broadcasting" and "iPod ™," the word was declared "word of the year" when it was added to the dictionary at the end of 2005. I have never owned an Ipod untill I brought my iPhone 3G this summer. At that point I, sadly, HAD to install iTunes. As you all know iTunes is a virus on a PC, but if I wanted my iPhone 3G to work at all, I had no choice. Therefore iTunes got installed. As I now were the owner of an “ipod”, formed as an iPhone, I could start look more into podcast. Actually it all started when I found the Sparkling Client – Silverlight podcast by searching for “silverlight” inside iTunes Store. I subscribed for the podcast and got them all on my iPhone 3G. On my way to work the next day, on my bike cycle, I started the first podcast. When I arrived at work 15 minutes later, I realized that I had actually learned something while doing something simple as riding my bike, which I do 25-30 min. two times a day(to and from work). This is were it started to get very interesting for me. Instead of listening to Ozzy, Metallica, Plain White T’s etc. to and from work, I could now learn something real, while doing something trivial as riding my bike. When I say real, I mean something I can actually use at my job or on my hobby projects, and not just the “lastest news” and “weather” in the normal FM radio (which the iphone 3G actually don’t have :P). So at this point I became wiser, times two. I learned that listening to podcast could actually give me some knowledge, while I’m doing other trivial things. I also learned something about templating in silverlight as Jesse Liberty were on this podcast :) Nothing new Yes, your right, this is nothing new and you all knew it all along. I know. I just learned that now and are now listening to podcast when I do the dishes, the laundry etc. Generally task that I don’t need to think to much about is great for listening to podcasts. Great podcasts I enjoy at the moment As already stated, I listen to the Sparkling Client – Silverlight podcast. This is the only podcast I have been able to find which is only about Silverlight. If you know others, please let me know. Hanselsminutes Podcast is also a podcast I enjoy alot at the moment. It not only about silverlight, but generally interesting stuff for a developer. Besides that, these podcasts is actually very funny. It’s seems that Scott Hanselman is a funny guy by nature, which just makes it all much better. See for instance his BabeSmash session at PDC2008 which shows his own “Babysmash application” but also gives an overview of the .NET framework.
Last night I got my iPhone 3G after being in queue for about 8 hours. Just before it became my turn they told us that the 16 GB black were sold out :(
So I had to buy a 8 GB black instead, couldn't leave without it after 8 hours in the rain. Now I just need to play around with it and learn how it works.
In Denmark the iPhone 3G is only sold through Telia and only with one subscribtion plan. This plan only includes 300 MB of data per month, which is way too low for a phone like iPhone 3G.
Therefore some people have created an website, where they request everybody to send an email to Telia about this issue.

I know I normally blog about Silverlight, .NET, Game development etc. Much of this is Microsoft related as I'm a Microsoft user and developer. When that is said, I have to say that I think I am going to by the new iPhone 3G!
When I first heard about it some weeks ago, I wasn't really that impressed. I knew about the old iPhone and I have seen it briefly as one of my colleagues had one. I haven't ever thought of it as a phone for me. All I saw was a fancy looking phone.
But then some weeks ago I heard about the new iPhone 3G and the new 2.0 OS it's running on. Actually I don't know why, but after that I started doing alittle researh on it. Now I have to say that I'm absolutely sold to that phone! I need to have one July 11th 2008!
Again, I'm 100% Microsoft man normally, but this phone just seems to have everything I need and a new way of thinking the interface. So I have to have one!
