Free ring tones for iphone



Create iPhone ringtones from iTunes previews:

1. Create a new playlist. Drag unpurchased songs from the iTunes store into your playlist. The songs will retain their "Add Song" buttons and their price within the playlist.

2. Export your playlist. Select the playlist in the sources column. Control-click/Right-click the playlist name and choose Export Song List from the pop-up menu.

3. Save the playlist as plain text. Select Plain Text from the Format pop-up and save the playlist file to your desktop.

4. Open the playlist file. It is a tab-delimited file of columns, so you can open it up in Excel (my preference, make sure to option-drag the text file onto the Excel icon) or a text editor like TextEdit.



5. Locate the file URLs. Each file URL appears in the final Location column for each line. Copy the URL.

6. Download the files. In Safari 3.0, open the Downloads window (Windows->Downloads). Paste the URL into the Download window and allow the file to transfer. Your computer must be authorized to your iTunes account. You may want to try playing back the file in QuickTime Player just to be sure it downloaded correctly. If you're not a Safari 3.0 user, use your favorite alternate such as curl, wget, or so forth.

7. Rename. Give the file a more meaningful name than, for example, "mzi.rwgtaash.aac.p.m4p". Retain the .m4p extension.

8. Upload to the iPhone. Use your favorite method (iphoneinterface, sshfs, sftp, whatever) to copy the file to /Library/Ringtones on your iPhone.

9. Select the ringtone. On the iPhone, navigate to Settings -> Sound > Ringtone and select the new file. The ringtone will play back as you select it. Please note that some newer releases (including Nicole Scherzinger's Whatever U Like--thanks Drunk Dwarf) do not work as ringtones. I'm not sure why.

Congratulations, not only have you added a new 30-second custom ringtone to your iPhone, but iTunes usually picks the best 30 seconds of any song for its preview. Enjoy.

Transfer Video to iPhone



iPhone isn’t even a week old yet, and already it’s apparent that accessory manufacturers and software developers have been busy for months gearing up for the release of Apple’s cell phone. One example is software company Innovative Solutions, which today announced a software package that helps users transport movies from DVDs to the iPhone.

The software, DVD to iPhone, makes it possible to “put full length DVDs, downloaded movies and other video on the iPhone.”

DVD to iPhone is a Windows program, for XP/Vista. According to Innovative Solutions, it can handle any DVD source including pre-recorded and recordable DVDs. Also transportable: video file formats including AVI and MPEG.


Innovative Solutions also said that the software enables very speedy transfers, “with a 90 minute DVD being transferred in an average 30 minutes.”

The software lets users select from a variety of settings for aspect ration, video and sound quality, and language/subtitle options. Output is compressed to 480hx320w, “optimised for the iPhone and ready to be watched.”


If you’re among those who snatched up one of the first iPhones, you can try out the software free, www.dvdtoiphone.com. Full version is $34.95 (EUR 29.95) excluding tax.

Firefox 3 Alpha 6 now available



Download links of Firefox3:


Microsoft Windows 2000 or later

MacOS X 10.3.9 or later

Linux


Mozilla has released the sixth alpha of Gran Paradiso, Firefox 3 development name. This release comes with a very short delay to the original schedule which is an important achievement considering Alpha 5 was delayed for about a week.

Some minor but nice updates have been added like a cleverer close dialog. In Firefox 2 when you have several tabs opened and have set it to ask for confirmation when closing multiple tabs, it doesn’t make much sense when Firefox asks for confirmation if you have set it to start with the windows and tabs from last time (in Options/General). Now, since it will start with your tabs and windows anyways it just closes. But if you haven’t set it this way it will ask if you want to save the current tabs and windows and have them available the next time it starts. A very nice improvement.



Another enhancement is the addition of a permanent Restart button to the Add-ons manager. Since almost every action in the Add-ons manager requires a restart (like installing, uninstalling, disabling, updating and changing the current theme) I find it a helpful addition.



Another improvement I am not so enthusiast about is the ability to define a keyword for search engines. As you may know, keywords are small words associated to a search engine you can use in the location bar followed by the search terms to perform a search. In the past, there was no obvious way to define new keywords and the process involved bookmarking a search results web page and manually editing the web address. Now it’s just a matter of selecting the search engine you want to add a keyword to in the Search Engine manager and press Edit Keyword…

Since you need the search bar on sight to access the Search Engine Manager and add the keywords I am not sure of how useful it will really be.



Other improvements include the addition of support for site specific preferences as previously reported and the ability to remember a web page text zoom as an example of what this new feature allows.

In the background, SQLite, the database engine that now powers the download manager and Places has been updated to the latest version. The download manager now shows download speeds in MB/s or GB/s as needed instead of KB/s only which could render hard to read numbers.

Other improvements include previously reported XPCOM Cycle Collector that will help reduce Firefox memory consumption and the ability to edit web page contents on the fly.

Current nightlies are being labeled prea7 which would suggest a seventh alpha is expected. This would push Beta 1, originally scheduled for late July, to August’s end. I don’t like delays but if a new alpha is on schedule it is more likely that not many features will be trimmed from the final Firefox 3. I’m still holding to a December Firefox 3 release estimate.

New Firefox 3 Features




In today’s Firefox 3 (code name Gran Paradiso) meeting, developers released a preliminary list of requirements for Firefox 3. The new target release date is sometime in the third quarter this year.

Among the list of mandatory requirements, read, what is the most likely to be included in Firefox 3 we have:

Improved interaction with Add-ons: clearer, more coherent language; less steps to install; more visible way to configure add-ons, probably to be moved back to the general Options window, which I hope deeply; more noticeable alerts when updates are available; a permanent restart Firefox button.
Support for remote bookmarks, bookmarks and history annotation.
Files could be handled by web services. If I am reading this correctly, this could mean you would be able to click on an attached document and open it with something like Writely or Google Documents. And perhaps, as I asked Santa, the ability to redirect mailto: links to web email services.
A much needed print support to prevent cut paragraphs and true WYSIWYG.
The much requested MSI installer which will be a much welcomed improvement for IT administrators as it will ease deployment and updating of Firefox across a company.
In the security front: support for Microsoft CardSpace and OpenID (check tomorrow’s article for more coverage on this). Smarter credentials handling.
Airbag, the Google backed open source crash reporting tool will replace currently licensed TalkBack.
Among the highly desirable requirements:

A private web browsing mode. I guess this would mean no cache, history, password or entered form information storage.
Save web pages as PDF files, integrated with history. That would be just awesome.
Support pause/resume downloads across sessions.
Make Firefox help accessible only while online. Not sure how good and idea this is.
Microformats support.
Nice to have:

Unified bookmarks/history. Does this mean no Places?
Support for Windows Vista parental controls. I really hope this one goes up in the priority list. This would be the first concrete downer for Firefox when confronted with Internet Explorer 7.
Tab grouping and expose. This sounds like Internet Explorer 7 Quick Tabs or the foxPose extension.
Windows Group Policy. Another blessing for IT administrators.
Allow add-ons to be installed without rebooting Firefox.
Simplified interface to manage downloads. Can it be simpler? Maybe exposing commands currently placed in the context menu.

New 7 wonders



The Taj Mahal in Agra, India.




The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum located in Agra, India. The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan commissioned it as a mausoleum for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Construction began in 1632 and was completed in approximately 1648. Some dispute surrounds the question of who designed the Taj Mahal; it is clear a team of designers and craftsmen were responsible for the design, with Ustad Ahmad Lahauri considered the most likely candidate as the principal designer.

The Taj Mahal (sometimes called "the Taj") is generally considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements of Persian, Turkish, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. While the white domed marble mausoleum is the most familiar part of the monument, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures. In 1983 the Taj became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage."

The Great Wall of China.





The Great Wall of China (literally "Long wall") is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in China, built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 5th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire during the rule of successive dynasties. Several walls, referred to as the Great Wall of China, were built since the 5th century BC, the most famous being the one built between 220 BC and 200 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. That wall was much further north than the current wall, built during the Ming Dynasty, and little of it remains.

The Great Wall is the world's longest human-made structure, stretching over approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles) from Shanhai Pass in the east to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. It is also the largest human-made structure ever built in terms of surface area and mass.

The Petra in Jordan



'''Petra''' (from "petra", rock in Greek; is an archaeological site in Jordan, lying in a basin among the mountains which form the eastern flank of Arabah (Wadi Araba), the large valley running from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. It is famous for having many stone structures carved into the rock. The long-hidden site was revealed to the Western world by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812. It was famously described as "a rose-red city half as old as time" in a Newdigate prize-winning sonnet by John William Burgon. Burgon had not actually visited Petra; which remained accessible only to Europeans accompanied by local guides with armed escorts, until after World War I. The site was inscripted as a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization World Heritage Site in 1985 when it was described as "one of the most precious cultural properties of man's cultural heritage.

Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.




Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: Cristo Redentor), is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The statue stands 38 m (105 feet) tall, weighs 700 tons and is located at the peak of the 700-m (2296-foot) Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park at 22°57'5?S, 43°12'39?W, overlooking the city.

As well as being a potent symbol of the Roman Catholic Church, the statue has become an icon of Rio and Brazil.

The Machu Picchu in Cuzco, Peru.




Machu Picchu (IPA pronunciation: (Quechua: Machu Pikchu Old Peak; sometimes called the "Lost City") is a pre-Columbian city created by the Inca Empire. It is located at 2,430 m (7,970 ft)[2] on a mountain ridge. Machu Picchu is located above the Urubamba Valley in Peru, about 70 km (44 mi) northwest of Cusco. Forgotten for centuries by the outside world, although not by locals, it was brought back to international attention by archaeologist Hiram Bingham in 1911, who made the first scientific confirmation of the site and wrote a best-selling work about it. Peru is pursuing legal efforts to retrieve thousands of artifacts that Bingham removed from the site.

The Kukulkan Pyramid of Chichen Itza in Mexico.



Chichen Itza (from Yucatec Maya chich'en itza', "At the mouth of the well of the Itza") is a large pre-Columbian archaeological site built by the Maya civilization located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, present-day Mexico.

Chichen Itza was a major regional center in the northern Maya lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.

Archaeological data, such as evidence of burning at a number of important structures and architectural complexes, suggest that Chichen Itza's collapse was violent. Following the decline of Chichen Itza's hegemony, regional power in the Yucatán shifted to a new center at Mayapan.

According to the American Anthropological Association, the actual ruins of Chich'en Itza are federal property, and the site’s stewardship is maintained by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, INAH). The land under the monuments, however, is privately-owned by the Barbachano family.

Colosseum in Rome, Italy.




The Colosseum or Coliseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium, Italian Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo), is a giant amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Originally capable of seating around 50,000 spectators, it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. It was built on a site just east of the Roman Forum, with construction starting between 70 and 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian. The amphitheatre, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire, was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign.

The Colosseum remained in use for nearly 500 years with the last recorded games being held there as late as the 6th century — well after the traditional date of the fall of Rome in 476. As well as the traditional gladiatorial games, many other public spectacles were held there, such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. The building eventually ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such varied purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry and a Christian shrine.

Although it is now in a severely ruined condition due to damage caused by earthquakes and stone-robbers, the Colosseum has long been seen as an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome and is one of the finest surviving examples of Roman architecture. It is one of modern Rome's most popular tourist attractions and still has close connections with the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope leads a torchlit "Way of the Cross" procession to the amphitheatre each Good Friday.
