Flash on IPhone

Amplify’d from techpp.com

Not being able to watch Hulu, BBC iPlayer and other Flash videos has been the major dealbreaker for many thinking to buy Apple’s iOS devices like iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. But then, the jailbreakers have found a work-around to play flash videos but only after completely sacrificing their Apple warranty.

Not anymore! Even those who don’t want to jailbreak their iDevice and keep their warranty intact can still watch Flash videos on their iOS device using a simple bookmarklet called iOSFlashVideo! This is touted as a free alternative to the Skyfire app, which costs $3 and not available in many countries as yet.

Officially, iOSFlashVideo supports these video streaming websites – Dailymotion, Flickr video, Megavideo, Vimeo. All you need to do is visit http://iosflashvideo.fw.hu from the mobile Safari browser and bookmark the link after removing specific characters from the URL.

How to Play Flash Videos on iPhone using iOSFlashVideo bookmarklet?

Before you get started, it’s advisable that you download

and install OPlayer or OPlayer Lite for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

1. Visit http://iosflashvideo.fw.hu/ via the Safari browser on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

2. Hit the + or arrow button in center at the bottom, select Add Bookmark and tap Save.

3. Open your bookmarks and tap Edit

4. Choose the new iOSFlashVideo bookmark

5. Delete everything before “javascript:” (basically it’s http://iosxflashvideo.fw.hu/#) and tap on Done.

6. Navigate any supported site and press bookmarks button to choose the iOSFLASHvideo which we had saved earlier.

You must now be able to play many of the popular flash videos. To confirm if everything is working as expected, you can visit http://iosflashvideo.fw.hu/demo/ and look for thumbnails below blip.tv, Flickr, Dailymotion, Break, MegaVideo and Vimeo labels.

It would be interesting to see if at all any reaction from Apple. Not that they can do much here, but at-least some sort of a feedback from them or may be even Adobe, would be really interesting!

Theft Aware

Link: http://www.theftaware.com/

There are some great features in this software and was testing it out last night and all worked as well as I expected.

One of the features I really like is the ability to enable the siren to scare the living daylights out of the person that took or stole your phone.
The call back feature is really good for being able to listen to what they are saying, you just send the command and your phone will ring you back, it's like magic.
There are sooo many features and customisations that it is hard to know where to start.

It has the ability to be able to retrieve sms messages off the phone and you can even specify how many you want to retrieve, along with that is the ability to get sms messages that have been sent from the phone.
Since I had already rooted my phone it was tightly integrated and the thief would not be able to uninstall the software without the pin number that you specify.
I tried out the positioning and was very accurate, I was walking around the backyard and it was following me. Was using another smart phone to track it and was very easy to use.
At a cost of less than $15, I think it has very good potential to people that are in the know with their phones.

People that are not to tech savy may struggle a bit with the installation and settings but still should be very manageable for everyone to install and setup.
I did the install as service and don’t know about the way of installing it, but I’m sure it is even easier than the rooted phone option..
All in all a very good product that I hope goes a long way and has lots of support.
Job well done.

Theft Aware

Try it out its awesome.
