Cycling challenge - London to Brighton for BHF

I need challenges so I registered for the London to Brighton cycle with the British Heart Foundation on 17th June 2012.

I would like to raise at least £1000 for the British Heart Foundation. You can support me in my goal at my fundraising page.

This will be the route.

Sandboxing allows free Guardian access

I like reading news online. It saves out forests plus is much more interactive. I have been looking for a newspaper to subscribe to. Times are out of question. Guardian, seems like good option, especially as they offer first day free. However, if you combine this try before buy offer with iOS sandbox architecture the newspaper issuer may loose out. here is why.

Try following:
1. Download Guardian through NewStand Store
2. Enjoy reading first day
3. Next day delete the app from news-stand
4. Download again

To correct this would require for apple to know that I downloaded the app already and indicate this to Guardian app.

I am in any way suggesting doing it. It is just interesting to see a security feature disrupting revenue.

It has been over a month since I have been using my iPhone 4S. I would like to share the apps I use, at least by showing the screenshots of the home screen. 
I am using Folders to fit my main applications on the first screen.

What's wrong with Apple TV 2


I am fan of Apple. Apart from work laptop, all of my home computers run Apple operating system. When Apple TV was announced I ordered one immediately. That was a year ago.
What is my verdict after an extensive use?

From snaps to TV - photo showings

I am an enthusiastic photographer. My photo library is now 100GB big and counting. Yet, when someone visits us I had to use my iMac or laptop to show the photos, and more importantly not every photo I take and import. Well, not anymore thanks for a combinations of technologies and products I have put together. And although I like Apple, I must say that Apple has done very poor job in making the user experience great when it comes to sharing selected pictures on a TV! Apple, take notice and make my experience better! Until then, I will use the system below.
